“There is a tremendous need in the real estate space for greater sharing of information without the friction traditionally found in hiring a Realtor”, says Avenue CEO Justin Shum. “Avenue functions as the middle ground between the digital touch & personal touch, which is exactly what the millennial crowd needs.”
How it Works:
Homeowners can download the app for free and ask any real estate related question. Their question is then broadcast to nearby agents and Avenue’s unique matching process will enable the best matched real estate agents to respond to their question. This process is based on personality, common interests, and needs taken from your public Facebook profile.
Avenue will launch on September 8th
