Tell us about your company.
eBrokerHouse is a transaction and offer management platform for real estate professionals. We serve every market in the country. Our platform allows agents to manage every back office aspect of their real estate transactions in one location. We eliminate the need for agents to use multiple software platforms for listing managment, CRM, showings, offers, tasks, notes, doc storage, etc.
Our most popular feature is online offer submission, which allows agents to receive offers on their listings online direct from the MLS. Listing agents can ensure complete offers are submitted to them and that they come over in a uniform format for easy organization and management. This feature also adds a lot of transparency to the offer process for all parties.
Why did you choose Las Vegas? What do you love about Las Vegas?
The company was actually started in Ohio, but we chose to relocate the business to Las Vegas for a several reasons. One was the real estate market. Las Vegas has a very dynamic real estate market and some of the best real estate professionals in the country. Things tend to happen here before they hit the rest of the country. Being in Las Vegas and consulting with local agents allows us to identify industry trends early and adapt our offerings accordingly. Also, being close to most of the important industry events and conventions was a huge factor. Plus we love the weather.
What can the Las Vegas community do to help your company?
Las Vegas has the highest percentage of agents that have adopted our platform than any other market. So we just hope local real estate professionals will continue to support our efforts and promote the benefits of our technology.
What’s your best advice for startup entrepreneurs?
Don’t be afraid to pivot strategy and don’t wait to long to do so if things aren’t going as well as you had hoped. Many times it will be very clear that a strategy is not working like you had planned, but entrepreneurs can be stubborn and think if they just tweak this or that, things will change. You need to be honest with yourself and pivot sooner than later. There are several things we have done or are doing now that I waited quite awhile to pull the trigger on. I wish we would have done them sooner and we would be that much further ahead.
