About the RealReal

The luxury business is a $1.5 trillion dollar industry, and we’re
revolutionizing it one consignment at a time. Let us explain.

We started small. Working at her kitchen table and visiting consignor homes with a U-Haul, our fearless leader CEO Julie Wainwright built The RealReal out of her own home. Today, it’s the premier site for online luxury consignment with over 600 employees and multiple locations across the United States that accept and ship product worldwide.

We believe in the lifecycle of luxury.

We celebrate artists, designers and quality craftsmanship. We know the luxury consumer experience isn’t just about buying designer items, but also reconsigning them, sharing them with someone who will treasure them as much as you do. And if it gives you extra cash to purchase the next piece you’ve been eyeing? Even better.

We’re authentic.

We ensure that every item on The RealReal is 100% the real thing, thanks to our dedicated team of authentication experts, horologists and gemologists. We know exactly how to tell real from counterfeit, from the quality of the leather to the zipper manufacturer. Read more

We’re sustainable.

We’re doing our part to be environmentally responsible. When you consign your pieces with us, you can feel good knowing that means less items in a landfill. With over 2.5 million items sold on our site, that adds up to a big impact. Read more

We’re passionate.

We work hard, because we love what we do. We’re fully committed to our business, our customers and our consignors. We’re constantly evolving and innovating to bring you the ultimate luxury experience.

They’re not bosses, they’re leaders.

Here’s what our employees say...

Marissa B.

Lead Product & Creative Stylist
“Not only do I get to be around luxury product everyday, but I also get to work with vibrantly creative people. I am constantly looking for new ways to be inspired in my daily life, and to be able to get this from my work place is especially powerful.”

Eric J.

Senior Designer
“As a long-time consigner, I love being able to take my own past user experiences and problem-solve issues that our users are also likely having. It's great being part of a team that is as enthusiastic as I am about our product, user experience, and design."

Carol M.

Luxury Client Group Director
"Working in a quickly growing company like The RealReal allows me to regularly test new methods of management and problem-solving. Everyday is a new challenge — no two days are the same! Our consignors and team members are inspiring and challenging in the best ways."

Robert K.

Senior Director, West Coast Operations
"It has been an incredibly challenging and rewarding experience being part of building The RealReal from the ground up. We're involved in every moving piece of the business, so we have complete control over authenticity, quality and accountability for the work we do on behalf of our consignors and customers."


In case you haven't heard, we're kind of a big deal.

Since its founding in 2011, TheRealReal has signed up 4.5 million users and sold over 2 million items. The company’s founder and CEO, Julie Wainwright, told Fortune that the site sold $200 million worth of goods in 2015, which is double the amount in 2014."

"At the valuation offices, female gemologists wear quilted, white lab coats and Manolo Blahnik shoes, a twist on the popular perception of jewelry appraisers as geeky men."

"[...] Founder and CEO Julie Wainwright started The RealReal in 2011 because she believed luxury buyers would jump at an easy — and discreet — way to unload last season’s looks, and more mainstream shoppers would be eager to pick them up at a discount."

"April is here and the imminent new season means you’re gearing up to sell 30% of your belongings on The Real Real"

"If you’re shopping The RealReal, the experience isn’t so different from high-end e-commerce sites such as Mr Porter."
