Our founder Glenn Orgin is a Brit. He bought and sold houses in the UK where agents receive circa 1% for selling a home and was shocked when he moved to Miami and discovered Americans were paying 6% brokerage fees. For the 66% of Americans who have mortgages, that 6% figure is actually a much higher percentage of their home equity, and sellers are just giving it away. In an age where smart technology has made discovery and selling of homes easier, sellers fees don’t need to be so high. In fact, Glenn set out to make selling without the middle-man so simple it could be done from one’s cell-phone, for FREE.
Glenn compiled an award-winning team to build a technology platform to empower homeowners who want to sell their homes without giving away a large chunk of their equity to agents. Richr.com sets out to equalize the playing field and help individuals market like an agent and choose what to do with their hard earned equity.
Glenn Orgin founded Richr after a decade working for his family run real estate investment company.
