CEO Mark Davis recently commented that RealQuantum, a Kansas City proptech firm, has seen a year of steady growth will help through to the end of 2019 thanks to closing its first round of seed funding.
“We closed a couple of times actually — people just kept showing up at the last minute wanting in,” Davis, RealQuantum’s CEO, said of the company’s inaugural investment round that formally closed in mid-October after a launch in late July.
Touting a product that makes tedious real estate appraisals easy, RealQuantum is a web-based narrative appraisal software and cloud-hosted comps database that modernizes the real estate appraisal industry. Capabilities of the product have excited metro investors, Davis added.
“We thought we were going to bootstrap through the entire journey,” Davis said. “[We realized] if we want to go fast, we have to have some acceleration [in terms of] capital.”
Originally leery of taking on outside support, investors — including lead backers Brad Bradley, co-founder of NIC; Steve Tesdahl; and Ned O’Connor, founder of Waterford Property Company — started reaching out to Davis and his team with interest in RealQuantum six months after the company’s launch, making the decision to open a funding round a no brainer, he said.
