My go to platforms are CrowdStreet and RealCrowd. I have one deal currently on RealCrowd. After using both CS & RC I prefer the deal flow on RC as the quality of the sponsors is a bit higher. RC has a higher bar that they require of their sponsors and the deal quality is the result of that.
I wish RC would use some of the information layout that CS uses and I wish CS would use the cleaner visual styles, typography of RC. With RC I have to work harder to find the financials (usually just in a document that I have to download). Where these platforms can really shine is to put a lot more effort in the way they present the information for deals (offerings page) and the deals themselves.
With all that I do like RC and in the more important points edges out CS for me..
