About the Episode
On this episode, I’m joined by top-producing agent turned successful tech entrepreneur, Tyler Smith; whose story and journey is inspiring because it proves that real estate can be a launching pad for successful businesses and products. In Tyler’s case, real estate wasn’t just a launching pad. His platform, SkySlope was actually born out of him making his real estate operations more efficient. He turned real estate transaction pain points into a solution, which became the foundation of his new business. Tyler’s business stands at the intersection between real estate operations, understanding consumer behavior and technology; making him a great person to talk to about the changes and shifts coming down the pipeline in our industry.

Tyler is the founder and CEO of SkySlope, a B2B SaaS platform that is focused on helping real estate agents manage their transactions online. He is a former top-producing Realtor who realized efficient transaction management software was lacking in real estate. SkySlope is the industry leading Digital Transaction Management software provider, offering a powerful suite of mobile, cloud and paperless transaction processing solutions. SkySlope is proud to serve more than 25% of the top 100 brokerages in the U.S., including almost half of the top 25 brokerages.

The consumer is in the driver’s seat of the shifts we’re seeing in the real estate, and at the core of that is a need for transparency, speed, and working with experts and practitioners they can trust before, during and beyond the transaction. If we’re not leading with these 3 things in our communications and operations, we won’t be able to measure up to the new standard the consumers have set. Platforms like Uber have successfully fed into the needs of the consumer, and so have iBuyers. As an industry, we need to be willing to do the same, or else we will get swept away.
