Opcity's new Texas office is big enough to hold 200 employees
The new office, which Realtor.com announced, will house 200 employees and will serve as a product and engineering hub for matching buyers and sellers with real estate agents in real time. The office will be located at 901 E. 6th St. in downtown Austin. The second office will complement its current 6800 Burleson Road base in Southeast Austin.
“This new location will give us access to a greater pool of resources and talent that will allow us to remain a leader in real estate innovation,” said Ben Rubenstein, CEO of Opcity, in a prepared statement. “Downtown Austin is a great tech hub and we’re excited to be back in the heart of it.”
Opcity, which was founded in Austin in 2015, uses data science and machine learning to connect home buyers and sellers with a real estate professional through technology. Back in the fall of 2018, Move, Inc. acquired Opcity for $210 million in an effort to bring in Opcity’s concierge-based model in which buyers and sellers are vetted and transaction-ready for the agent.
