Listing Bits: Leveraging big data in real estate

Future-Proof: Navigate Threats, Seize Opportunities at ICNY 2018 | Jan 22-26 at the Marriott Marquis, Times Square, New York

In a world where your every move is tracked via geocode through your Starbucks orders and Instagram posts, there is an abundance of data.

Those who know how to interpret that data can use it to serve you and every other person they are learning about.

The world of real estate is no different, and there is much buzz in the industry regarding an innovative new data solutions product for agents: Remine.

Today’s guests on Listing Bits discuss Remine, a big data company that delivers predictive analytics to real estate professionals exclusively through their MLS.

They analyze property records, transactional history and consumer data to determine someone’s likelihood of buying, selling or refinance a home.

Chief operating officer of Remine Jonathan Spinetto has been a licensed agent since 2002. Using his own custom technology systems, Spinetto has completed over 3,000 single family residential transactions. As both a practitioner and a technologist who offers unique insight into industry trends, he delivers keynotes internationally around big data in real estate.
