REALM™ the first collaborative global real estate collective launched during the Pandemic delivers $5.4 Billion in inventory in nine months. When I wrote about REALM’s launch last April the pandemic was hitting the country hard. Julie Faupel, REALM founder and CEO and owner of Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates, was optimistic that REALM was the right global real estate collective for 2020. Given the enthusiastic response of founding members, Faupel had reason for her optimism. As we’ve discovered this year the importance and value of community and establishing connections both professional and personal.
Fast forward to today. Moving into 2021 with over $5.4 Billion in luxury real estate inventory, REALM’s elite membership includes the industry’s top real estate professionals. The majority of members are recognized as industry leaders by various media including Wall Street Journal/REALTrends annual survey rankings. “COVID created an unforeseen opportunity for us to pivot to and we stepped up to fill that void our members were feeling. Existing members are introducing their colleagues to REALM and our membership is thriving,” Faupel said.
REALM, offers patented technology and exclusive services to members that optimize the unique experiences, lifestyles, and passions of their high net worth (HNW) clients to match them with the properties they seek. REALM’s strength is that it connects agent to agent in service to their clients via a curated content platform integrating information from the world’s leading data resources. REALM combines real-time data with human experience and networking. A REALM membership is a relationship enhancer and includes a game-changing technology platform that will enhance client data, provide a lifestyle profile for a member’s clients, and then matches REALM members anywhere in the world based on the clients they represent and the listings they have.
