Pro.com will now have “reach” into industries including real estate, insurance, mortgage and financial services. We are excited to announce that Pro.com is the first company to be accepted into the 2015 class of REach®, a Second Century Ventures company and the strategic arm of the National Association of Realtors®.
Pro.com has helped over 100,000 customers fulfill their home projects needs, and the REach program will allow Pro.com to launch into the giant ecosystem of real estate professionals and financial services, which will be an incredibly valuable resource for Pro.com’s growth.
Matt Williams, founder and CEO of Pro.com, shares:
“Real Estate agents and homeowners alike use Pro.com to price home projects and quickly find the best pro to get the job done. It’s an honor to be accepted into this year’s REach accelerator program – the knowledge, resources and support will be invaluable to us as we grow.”
Now in it’s third year or “class,” the REach program offers up to 10 companies each year the opportunity to connect with NAR’s 1 million members that boasts some of the top executives and entrepreneurs in the industry. REach has helped previous classes to double their customer base and raise over $34 million in financing from well-known venture funds including SoftBank Capital, Intel Capital, Javelin and 500 Startups.
NAR President Chris Polychron, executive broker with 1st Choice Realty in Hot Springs, AR, shares:
“Pro.com is ideally poised to take full advantage of the REach program, as they and all participants will benefit significantly from access to real estate leaders − from education to mentorship to market exposure. While Pro.com is applicable to so many individuals, it hits on a sweet spot in the real estate space, as in this day and age, Realtors® are going well beyond the transaction and often times act as an advisor to homebuyers and sellers, who turn to Realtors® when making improvements to their homes.”
REach works primarily with SaaS-based companies that are more established than the average start-up and with applicability in real estate, financial services, banking, home services and/or insurance markets. Learn more about the program on their website, followtheir blog, watch testimonial videos, read FAQs, and connect with them on LinkedIn and Twitter.
