Meet the RE Tech Entrepreneur: Jarred Kessler from Easyknock
In our latest real estate tech entrepreneur interview, we’re speaking with the CEO from Easyknock, Jarred Kessler.
Without further ado…
What do you do?
I am the CEO of Easyknock and an investor in startups. I am the jack of all trades in the company and on a quest to change the home buying and selling market from being 93% done by brokers to much less. We hope to do this by connecting people directly.
What problem does your product/service solve?
We are creating a platform that empowers buyers and owners to connect directly to buy and sell a home. With EasyKnock, homeowners can enter a much broader market by asking owners what price they would sell their home for. This takes away the often difficult challenges of the traditional listing process.
What are you most excited about right now?
I am most excited about the macro trends changing the way business is done . People want to connect directly and 88% of the consumers don’t value brokers in a survey of 20k people. Im also excited about my book “Death of Real Estate Salesman” I also invested in a company called Meural.com that I love.
What’s next for you?
Next for us is launching in Long island, NY (next month) and creating value for owners and buyers in Easyknock. Also adapting my book into a movie.
What’s a cause you’re passionate about and why?
I am passionate about helping build a better education dynamic in third world countries. If you give people more to lose the world becomes better.
