Fort Lauderdale-based LevelRE launches nationally

LevelRE_Logo_MedLevelRE, new real estate technology and service company based in Fort Lauderdale, launched nationally on Tuesday. The company said it is the first online full-service brokerage with regional presence throughout the country that enables buyers and sellers to manage and control the home sales process while saving thousands of dollars.

The company, a full-service licensed real estate brokerage, offers its own listings and aggregates listings from major online services on levelre.com. Its proprietary technology gives customers the ability to list, price, search, bid, and negotiate in real-time from their devices, all with the assistance of licensed real estate agents and  support staff. The company says the process can slash a large chunk off  the typical costs of real estate commissions.

“LevelRE aims to change the traditional process and commission structure Americans have grown accustomed to when they buy and sell their homes,” said CEO Todd Seigel,  a long-time real estate broker, lawyer and CPA. “This is most Americans’ largest lifetime investment and we see real value in helping home buyers and sellers save money by using cutting-edge technology to streamline the process.”

 The  company was founded in late 2011, secured  funding in 2013 and completed its beta program in August. It’s backed by CrunchFire Ventures and the Miami Innovation Fund. In addition to Siegel, the founding team also includes Franc Nemanic, vice president of business development, and Steve Repetti, chief technology officer.
