We are really excited to become a member of such a well-known and renowned organization. We look forward to providing insightful information about our new way of helping consumers buy and sell real estate.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) April 24, 2018
All-in-one homebuying app Open Listings has been accepted into Forbes Real Estate Council, an invitation-only organization for executives in the real estate industry. This council brings educational and valuable information about the latest trends in Real Estate from seasoned professional leaders in the industry.
Kevin Miller, Director of Growth at Open Listings, joins other Forbes Real Estate Council members, who are hand-selected, to become part of a curated network of successful peers and get access to a variety of exclusive benefits and resources, including the opportunity to submit thought leadership articles and short tips on industry-related topics for publishing on Forbes.com.
Forbes Councils combines an innovative, high-touch approach to community management perfected by the team behind Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) with the extensive resources and global reach of Forbes. As a result, Forbes Council members get access to the people, benefits and expertise they need to grow their businesses —and a dedicated member concierge who acts as an extension of their own team, providing personalized one-on-one support.
Miller stated, "we are really excited to become a member of such a well-known and renowned organization. We look forward to providing insightful information about our new way of helping consumers buy and sell real estate”.
This thought leadership is crucial for a real estate brokerage such as Open Listings, operating with an interesting and consumer-focused business model. A user of the Open Listings platform not only benefits from the expertise of a local real estate agent when using the platform, but the buyer also receives a 50 percent refund on the agent’s 3 percent commission.
For instance, the buyer of a $600,000 home would receive a refund of $7,500, which could cover the majority of closing costs. Using the Open Listings mobile app or website, users can set up personalized, real-time feeds of available homes, schedule home tours, and make offers on a property.
Once a buyer has made an offer, he or she is paired with a local real estate agent who will work on getting the offer accepted and the deal closed.
“We are thrilled to be able to share our story and service with the Forbes community. We now have nearly one million homebuyers shopping with us each month,” says Judd Schoenholtz, co-founder and CEO of Open Listings. “Our software makes an overly complicated process easy. Then, the best agents take homebuyers through the last mile of closing, which makes it possible to offer a refund three to four times more than other online brokerages.”
