On the Startup Road: Propstack

Got caught up with my good friend Raja recently. We spoke about how fast his site is growing and a lot about the tech market in India. It’s a really fascinating discussion to compare and contrast markets from around the world and their adoption of real estate tech. Raja and his team have built an amazing real time platform that pulls together property information, transaction data, tenant stacking, marketing data and so much more.

I had an absolute blast meeting Stephanie and getting a demo of their really cool VR product. VR is one of the most active sectors in real estate tech and after writing so much about it on my own blog, it was fun to finally take a test drive! What is really unique about what Stephanie andJeff Maurer, CEO, are doing in the VR space is they are taking floor plans and creating an amazing virtual experience for builders and realtors.

Discovering all the wonderful new real estate tech sites and the entrepreneurs behind them is how I get to spend most of my time. Really blessed. It’s a wonderful job. One of those sites and the entrepreneur behind it that really caught my attention is the CEO of IOTAS, Sce Pike. With over 15 years of experience and two successful tech companies on her resume, Sce is no stranger to the tech space.

I recently had a chance to touch base with Chris at Investor Management Services. Chris has been working in the B2B software world for over 20 years – this guy really knows his stuff! He and his team at IMS have seen the SaaS delivery model disrupt several industries and once it was apparent that this was going to happen in the CRE space, and rapidly, Chris saw a huge opportunity to take the early traction IMS had already achieved to create an industry leading technology platform that would provide CRE companies a clear path to embrace efficiencies in the digital era.

Bob reached out to introduce me to his site, FastOffice.com. What’s so cool about his site is that it’s part of what I think is one of the fastest growing and hottest sectors of the CRE tech space…space visualization. Fast Office is a platform that is designed to provide commercial landlords and brokers with a tool to lease space faster and more effectively. Their tool merges the space tour and test-fit process by providing editable, 3D animation clips of available spaces.

Here is a description of what they do from their website, impressive shit… “We design, build, and evolve modern software products.

We met up on the Highline on a beautiful day in New York City.  The companies that Jeff and his Funds have invested in read like a “Who’s Who” in the startup space such as VTSCompstakFundriseBuildingEnginesLatch and too many more to list.
