“Our vision is to build a platform that allows real estate teams and independent brokers to manage the transaction process via a collaborative platform, bringing teams, vendors, and clients into a single source of truth” states Chris Lucas, CEO of Shaker. “Our investors continue to believe in the platform and the opportunity ahead, but more importantly our customers continue to see immediate value via our sleek user interface and powerful transaction features.”
Shaker already has a robust set of features including a client mobile app to track the progress of their closings. It also allows teams to create automated tasks, emails and text messages. They also launched an integrated DocuSign solution, allowing real estate teams to send and receive contracts via Shaker.
“What set Shaker apart from the other solutions we were considering was it's sleek design. This is a platform that isn't trying to be all things to all industries. They know what they're doing in real estate and they do it really well,” states Tiffany Szakal, Broker/Owner at I Heart Grand Rapids. “The client portal with integrated Brokerage preferred vendors list makes us a standout in our market and is a win-win-win for everyone involved, even after the transaction.”
