They changed the way we live, work, move and stay secure — and guess what? They weren’t created by hoodie-wearing technologists in Silicon Valley.
These inventions came out of the booming technology powerhouse of Australia. And from that landscape also grew RateMyAgent, a real estate reviews platform founded in 2014 by friends Mark Armstrong and Ed Van Roosendaal.
The mission of RateMyAgent has always been simple: to help good agents showcase their great work and the results they achieve for their clients.
In the six years since its inception, RateMyAgent has grown to 80% agent market share and collected reviews for 1 in 3 homes sold in Australia; the company is also a publicly listed company on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX:RMY).
On the heels of their success in their native Australia, RateMyAgent launched its platform in the U.S. in 2017 and has quickly exceeded initial usage and sign-up goals with American agents, brokerages and MLS’s.
