120 July 2019 RISMedia's REAL ESTATE {re: Real Estate} The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) has done the legwork and taken the guesswork out of this challenging question. The REACH technology accelerator, developed by Second Century Ventures (SCV), NAR®' s investment arm, reviews thousands of emerging technology companies and vets them for you. The result is the REACH Class of 2019—eight cutting-edge companies chosen for their potential to improve the customer experience by giving brokers and agents powerful new tools that provide quicker answers, better services, increased security and more accurate data. REALTORS® Have First Access to REACH Technology As an NAR member, you're eligible to join the Insight Panel, put these new products to the test and take part in shaping the technological picture for REAL - TORS®.

REACH Class of 2019 These companies, ranging from seed stage to well- capitalized startups, rose to the top in providing solu- tions that help brokers and agents serve consumers' best interests. Two companies offer groundbreaking ways to de- liver exceptional ROI for home sellers. Curbio helps homeowners unlock the full potential of their prop- erty with a "renovate now, pay when you sell" model, and Staging & Design Network offers the first online shared rental pool for home furnishings built for the real estate and home staging communities. New, efficient and effective marketing tools allow you to better connect with customers and meet their needs. Amarki is a seamless, automated market- ing platform that unifies all of your systems in one place, and Evocalize connects content with the right audience across the Facebook family of apps, gen- erating demand when and where it's needed. Rate- MyAgent's digital marketing tool helps consumers find trusted agents by providing verified reviews, and it allows agents to collect, share and promote cus- tomer feedback. REConsortia uses distributed ledger technology to build transparency and simplify the referral tracking process, while Propy's end-to-end transaction plat- form helps facilitate secure, fast and simple real es- tate transactions entirely online. Safety is a primary concern for REALTORS®, and Kleard not only provides tools to increase safety— like real-time verification for open houses—it also makes agents more productive through a check-in app with an integrated CRM.
