The U.S. market has been resilient in the face of the expected crisis due to the global pandemic. The hardiness shows in that fact that companies are able to continue raising funding, hire new leadership, launching new startups, and expanding into new markets.

One such is Localize, which has expanded into Chicago. The brainchild of former tech developers at Waza, Via, and Taboola, Localize offers a marketplace for homes where users can browse via very specific criteria like how close a home is from a school, dog park, grocery store, etc. 

Asaf Rubin, Co-Founder and CEO of Localize, explained:

“In the same way technology has changed how people find and consume media and goods, Localize is changing how people find homes.”

Localize has a team of 140 data scientists, engineers, urban planners, GIS experts, and cartographers, which makes the platform’s unique service possible.

Chief Operating Officer Omer Granot, said:

“Given the current state of the market, and complexities in simply visiting your future home, Localize helps home hunters remove the doubt out of what is typically one’s largest financial decision.”

The startup has successfully raised over $30 million from investors, and Chicago is its second market after its homebase in New York.
