NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, EasyKnock, the first technology-enabled residential sale-leaseback platform, announced it has been selected as the winner of “Overall PropTech Solution of the Year'' in the annual PropTech Breakthrough Awards, conducted by the leading independent market intelligence organization that evaluates and recognizes standout real estate technologies around the globe. The award win follows EasyKnock’s recent announcements of its ranking on the 2023 Inc. 5000 list as well as the company’s forthcoming marketplace that will provide a new, more comprehensive suite of products and services offering consumers new ways to buy, sell, and utilize their equity all on one platform.
“EasyKnock is honored to be named Overall PropTech Solution of the Year by the PropTech Breakthrough Awards,” said Jarred Kessler, CEO and founder of EasyKnock. “This year, we announced that we are expanding our suite of products to provide more options and a competitive advantage to consumers and industry partners nation-wide. This recognition is a testament to EasyKnock’s vision to propel the PropTech industry forward.”
This year, the company took its first step in developing its marketplace through the acquisition of Ribbon Home, an industry leader in powerbuying and cash offer solutions. The transaction brought together financial solutions that serve homeowners, buyers, and sellers into one unified experience.
Most recently, EasyKnock announced its plans to launch BuyBoost, a new innovative program designed to help homeowners improve their financial wellbeing and facilitate mortgage preparedness. BuyBoost will serve as an alternative to cash-out refinance loans and home equity lines of credit (HELOCs) for homeowners who need liquidity but are unable to qualify for loans due to lender requirements.
"In recent years, the real estate industry has been firmly in the throes of digital transformation. From digitization, data access, and mobile, cutting edge technologies are being applied across the entire property ecosystem revolutionizing the space as we know it. We set out to recognize those leading the charge in this transformative new era," said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of PropTech Breakthrough Awards. "From smart buildings to AI, construction, real estate finance, and even advances in architecture, the breakthrough winners in our third annual program represent excellence, creativity, hard work and success in the field of real estate technology."
The mission of the annual PropTech Breakthrough Awards program is to conduct the industry’s most comprehensive analysis and evaluation of the top technology companies, solutions, and products in the real estate technology industry today. This year’s program attracted more than 1,700 nominations from 12 different countries throughout the world.
