Real Estate Dealmaking Platform RealConnex Partners with Miami Association of Realtors
NEW YORK, June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RealConnex, the world’s first B2B platform connecting real estate professionals to capital, investments, services and each other, today announced a strategic partnership with the Miami Association of Realtors (MIAMI), the largest local Realtor Association in the nation. Under the alliance, MIAMI’s more than 46,000 members will be able to use the RealConnex platform to manage their residential, commercial and investment real estate networking and transactions.
The new partnership with RealConnex will allow the Miami Association of Realtors to deploy RealConnex’s real estate networking and deal making platform throughout its organization and member offices. MIAMI’s realtors will be able to access the full range of platform tools, including member-to-member collaboration and marketing, networking and transaction tools, and distribution of listings to clients.
MIAMI is known as one of the most innovative Realtor Associations in the U.S. The organization is working as a design partner with RealConnex to implement new features and toolsets for its membership. The RealConnex platform will provide members with broader visibility and access to connections and specific transaction opportunities -- access that cannot be identified as quickly and easily anywhere else. RealConnex plans to roll out the program to other real estate associations around the U.S.
RealConnex was founded in 2013 by Roy Abrams, a technologist and real estate developer, to solve a problem faced by many real estate developers: funding mid-market projects and connecting to the right capital sources and service providers. RealConnex currently has a community of 72,000 developers, sponsors, capital sources, service providers and owners. It expects to reach the 100,000 member mark by the end of 2017, and it is on track to facilitate up to a billion dollars in transacted deals on its platform within the same time frame.
The Miami Association of Realtors, which was chartered by the National Association of Realtors in 1920, has seen its membership increase from 162 at its inception to more than 46,000 in the present day. Through educational training programs, strategic partnerships and networking events, MIAMI has dedicated nearly a century to helping its member realtors drive professional growth and expand their business opportunities. As the largest local Realtor Association in the country, MIAMI has played an instrumental role in promoting South Florida and its local economy by creating alliances with more than 160 international real estate partners, the most of any Realtor Association in the United States.
“RealConnex will provide our members with a powerful competitive advantage,” said Teresa Kinney, CEO of Miami Association of Realtors (MIAMI). “The platform will make it significantly easier for our members to collaborate, share, network and distribute listings locally, nationally and internationally.”
“The Miami Association of Realtors is one of our most valued strategic partners, and we look forward to broadening and extending our collaboration as we continue to build the largest professional network for commercial real estate professionals,” said RealConnex founder and CEO Roy Abrams. “As a New York- and Miami-based real estate technology startup, we are excited about working with MIAMI to offer better service to its member realtors and promote South Florida’s booming economy.”
RealConnex is the world's first B2B platform aggregating the commercial real estate community and connecting its members to capital, investments, and services. The company was founded in 2013 by Roy Abrams, a 25-year veteran of the real estate and technology industries, who set out to create the leading platform where commercial real estate professionals could network, prospect and connect to expedite transactions. It currently has a community of 72,000 developers, sponsors, capital sources, service providers and owners and expects to reach the 100,000 member mark in late 2017. It is on track to facilitate a billion dollars in transacted deals within the same time frame.
