Joel Leslie, CEO of data management company Transmit Data, says the real estate tech space is booming, and his company is on the lookout for new partnerships.
Leslie said that as a sponsor of Property Portal Watch’s upcoming conference in Madrid, he was very keen to speaking with those interested in creating new initiatives and or looking to shake up the online classifieds industry.
“Transit Data is on the lookout for new startup players that it can assist grow their business,” he told Property Portal Watch.
“Transmit Data is the perfect building block for any new business seeking to create a website based on data, specifically classified websites like property portals.”
Leslie said technology – and the way we use data – was changing so fast, but big moves are on the horizon.
“We are yet to see the next big thing in real estate, but I can tell that it is on the periphery,” he said. “2015 saw significant capital investment in real estate tech and it’s definitely continuing throughout 2016.
“There are so many new creative ideas, I can see new technology/delivery just around the corner. I am hearing a lot of talk about movement, specifically in Australia and the US, it will be interesting to see what the next 12 months bring.”
Transmit Data recently unveiled its new corporate identity and website to celebrate five years in business, and Leslie said he was very pleased with the company’s progress.
“Transmit Data is gaining momentum every day, we are launching new functionalities and features that are directly aimed at process improvement for our clients, we are always striving to remain abreast of the competition, quickly adapting to changes within the industry,” he said.
“In Madrid, Transmit Data hope to again further its recognition as the key dominant player within the classified listings data industry.”
The company also continues to research the data sector, with a report in August into the security, ownership and general handling of data within the real estate classifieds industry revealing real estate agents do not trust third party portals.
