Blend PR has been hired to assist with media relations for the new startup, fivewalls. In today’s digital age, finding a partner with all the right credentials is just a click away - but who knew the same could be said for real estate?
Founded in 2014, fivewalls was created with a simple goal in mind: to connect home buyers with real estate agents that suit their needs. This free service uses a special algorithm to match sellers and buyers with the right real estate agents. Real estate agents pay fivewalls to create profiles on the site and home buyers and sellers can scroll through the candidates. All real estate agents are vetted and fulltime. Unlike a traditional brokerage, fivewalls does not have any of their own agents, besides their broker of record. This keeps the site fair and regulated.
The company is focused on transparency and building a foundation of trust. Home buyers and sellers have the opportunity to work with real estate professionals based on the validation and testimony of others on their profiles. This simplifies the process of finding the right real estate agent for each individuals needs. Transparent information is available on their profile showcasing years of experience, reviews, videos, bios etc.
Entrepreneur and founder Paul Hayman states that with the real estate market moving online, there was an increased need for people to research real estate agents and homes online. Agents from major brokerages including ReMax, Royal LePage and Sutton Group have joined fivewalls.
Blend PR aims to help the company gain recognition as thought leaders in the real estate market by assisting with the distribution of the first and only TREB (Toronto Real Estate Board) report. Curated by the experts at fivewalls, the TREB report highlight the housing trends happening in Toronto over the past 20 years.
