So a number of you have messaged and written me to say positive things about the two interviews I did with Fred Bin of Zoom Casa and Rick Rudman of Curbio last week. I know I’m a writer first and you come here to read overly lengthy posts about various real estate topics, but I had fun doing the interview format and thought it was worth trying for a while.
Here’s the first in this series of interviews with various people in the industry on real estate topics. My first guest is Chris Drayer, CEO of Revaluate, a data company based in beautiful Boulder, CO.
We go on a wide-ranging and open discussion about a number of topics, but the main focus was on what Chris sees coming for real estate lead generation thanks to the new feature in iOS 13 that blocks unsolicited phone calls coupled to changes in FCC rules. He wrote a post about it on the Revaluate blog, which you can find here. We talked about that, real estate marketing in general, how things might change, bespoke tailoring and Korean karaoke.
Without further ado, here’s the Notorious Interview with Chris Drayer of Revaluate:
Official Bio of Chris Drayer, CEO, Revaluate:
Formerly the founder of Finch Marketing, where he advised real estate brokers and technology companies on growth, including the launch of StartUps RealSatisfied (now a Placester company), EasyVT, HomeDiary and growing FloorPlanOnline.
When not building Revaluate, Chris is often with his wife and two daughters outdoors in a canoe, kayak or sailboat or running on the mountain trails near his home outside of Boulder, Co.
The company specializes in creating highly efficient AI algorithms with machine learning that devour data from an incredible number of sources and make the seemingly impossible, simple.
Currently we focus within mortgage and real estate company databases, Revealing likely movers. Show us a database, and Revaluate will reveal likely movers.
When we first launched the new product in November of 2016, Inman wrote “during the demo, one of the highest ranked returns is a personal friend who is indeed looking to move soon.”
In 2017 Revaluate was named “Top 20 Trendsetter” by Stephan Swanepoel’s SP200, and was a finalist for the 2017 Inman Innovators Award.
