The Opportunity

Today, most real estate decisions are made
via gut instinct and outdated information.
We think that people deserve better.
• Real estate is the largest asset class in the world. The U.S.
transacts $1.5 trillion in residential real estate annually.
• There are 2 million licensed real estate agents in the U.S.
alone, generating $75 billion in brokerage commissions.
• The industry is highly fragmented with over 64,000
boutique brokerages and over 800 MLSs.
• There are more than 250 niche third-party software tools
for agents that don’t work together. The average agent

uses 11 different tools.

both broad and enduring.
