We are excited to announce that RealtyCrunch will be joining The Real Brokerage Inc.
It was almost a year ago (but it feels like 10) when I wrote this first blog post https://blog.realtycrunch.io/2020/01/25/real-estate-collaboration-platform/ . We entered the industry as complete outsiders, we were not agents. We had no experience running a brokerage. However, we did come with a passion to just make the buy, sell or rent process easy! We came in having faced the pain as home buyers and investors and wanted to make it simple for that home buyer. We wanted to make it fun and not this dreaded miserable experience!
Real (www.joinreal.com) is a technology-powered real estate brokerage in 22 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. Real is on a mission to make agents’ lives better, creating financial opportunities for agents through higher commission splits, best-in-class technology, revenue sharing and equity incentives.
When I met with Tamir Poleg, the CEO and co-founder of Real a few years ago, two things were very clear from the start. We both share a passion for technology, along with a vision that the real estate industry could be vastly improved with better technology. We also believe that the real estate agent is at the heart of a successful to a real estate transaction, and if we improve the technology and tools for the agent and the consumers, we could improve the overall buying and selling experience. We’re excited to bring the knowledge we’ve gained at RealtyCrunch to Real and help the team at Real grow to new heights.
So we’re excited to bring the knowledge we’ve gained at RealtyCrunch to Real and help Real grow to new heights.
What does this mean for you as a RealtyCrunch user?
On 11th January 2021, we will be retiring the RealtyCrunch service. You will still have access to the platform and be able to download your data until the end of the month. If you are using our forms feature you will not be able to send new forms or sign forms using our service. We will offer you a bulk data download tool in a few days where you will be able to download all signed forms.
As part of the acquisition, Real is not acquiring any customer data. We will be deleting all data at the end of January 2021.
We are incredibly humbled and thankful for the support we got from agents and partners across the country, especially in a difficult 2020 year. We are proud of this decision and look forward to working hard to create new products that are as fun to use and used by 1000s of agents with passion!
