We started out building something different - an app that matches renters with apartments (OkCupid for real estate). After all, Alex and Cleo met on OkCupid, and they thought they could bring the matching idea to real estate. But during one of our many meetings with real estate companies to show them our prototype, an agent said to us, "You know what would be amazing? If rather than just sending me leads, you guys could actually get renters into the apartments." Meaning, turning leads into customers. So that's what we're building - a platform to facilitate conversations.
We're now working with 8 real estate brokerages to build out the REMY platform. Our goal is to help real estate agents become the best that they can be at their jobs. We believe that more effective agents will result in happier renters.
