Austin brokerage recognized on national stage as one of the Most Innovative Brokerages

AUSTIN, TX — Realty Austin, Austin’s no. 1 independent brokerage, was a finalist at the Inman Innovator Awards. The awards and announcements were made at the Innovator Bash at the annual Real Estate Connect conference held in San Francisco in August.

Jonathan Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “It is an honor to be recognized by Inman, who values innovation achievements at an extraordinary level. We were impressed with the technology we saw at Inman Connect this year. It is an exciting time to be in the real estate industry and brokers like us will benefit greatly from the advancements on the horizon. At Realty Austin, our mindset is like a tech start-up and we don’t stop innovating for our agents or customers—it’s at the core of our DNA— and we are excited about what the future brings.”

Realty Austin was among 21 national finalists in the Most Innovative Brokerage category. The Inman Innovator Awards recognize companies that develop tools to help improve the real estate experience through the use of technology and innovation.

Jeff Burke, Director of Online Development for Realty Austin said, “Realty Austin is implementing technology most brokerages have not even considered. Austin, Texas is a technology epicenter and our agents expect constant innovation as they continue to be excellent global resources in the relocation process. Our team is creating solutions today to answer the needs of the next generation.”

Brad Inman said, “Inman Innovators are on the forefront of change in the industry. By consistently asking what can be better about the industry and trying to make their dreams reality, they are pushing every one of us to view the industry using a different lens.”

At the annual conference Boatwright, Burke, and online marketing director Brittanie MacLean presented what makes the Realty Austin model the brokerage of the future.

This year marks the second time Realty Austin has been a nominee for the Inman Innovator Award which was created in 1997 by Inman News. In 2012 the company was recognized in the same category.
