San Francisco, CA, July 27, 2015 – Matt Fuller, eminent agent with Zephyr Real Estate, was recently invited to serve as Realtor in Residence with Amitree, a real estate technology company founded by Jonathan Aizen, to deliver tools for agents to guide their clients through the often-overwhelming experience of home buying and selling.
Aizen, a well-known and highly respected entrepreneur, has been founding Internet companies for over 20 years including Dapper, which was acquired by Yahoo! in 2010. He met Fuller several years ago around the time when he launched Amitree. At that time, they engaged in a lengthy discussion about real estate technology. Many of the insights and feedback that Fuller offered stuck with Aizen, so as he was launching the Realtor in Residence program, he immediately decided to call Fuller. Thus began the new relationship.
The role of Realtor in Residence is, according to Aizen, to spend four to eight hours each week over a period of a few months at the Amitree office engaging in casual interactions. This often produces a very different outcome than prescribed feedback sessions. As the relationship develops, ideas, thoughts and visions for the industry can be shared, developed and put into practice. This interaction facilitates collaboration between an active Realtor and an innovative start-up company to build tools for agents and clients.
The position of Realtor in Residence is a new one at Amitree and was created to help develop and create products and methods for consumers working with Realtors.
“We were looking for an agent who is passionate about technology and willing to help a startup,” commented Aizen. “Matt is the ideal choice for this role, and I am delighted that he is as excited to participate as we are to have him on the team.”
Amitree was created to help agents manage the home buying journey for each of their clients, through every step in the process. Zephyr Real Estate was among the first to incorporate the use of Amitree (formerly Closing Time) throughout their entire brokerage.
“I am honored to be asked and pleased to join up with this impressive team,” stated Fuller. “The opportunity to share experiences will help us all better accomplish our mutual goals for helping buyers and sellers of real estate.”
Fuller has been with Zephyr since beginning his real estate career in 2002, and has several advanced industry accreditations, including the GRI (Graduate of the Realtor Institute) and e-Pro designations. Along with his business partner of over a decade, Britton Jackson, he leads the SF Modern Condos team at Zephyr, and can be found online at www.SFModernCondos.com and www.JacksonFuller.com. The SF Modern Condos team at Zephyr has a proven track record of success in the highly competitive San Francisco market and can be reached at [email protected] or at (415) 275-1745.
Fuller currently serves as the Chief Financial Officer for the San Francisco Association of REALTORS (SFAR) as well as a Director for the California Association of REALTORS (CAR).
