Gadberry Group Acquisition
RE/MAX Holdings recently announced the acquisition of the Gadberry Group. Gadberry Group is a location intelligence data company whose products have been instrumental in the success of the newly launched www.remax.com consumer website. Founded in 2000, Gadberry Group’s team is comprised of a total of 16 employees including engineers, data scientists and customer success experts who specialize in building products that help clients solve geospatial challenges through accurate and precise location data. Gadberry Group will continue to serve non-RE/MAX clients while maintaining their contributions to the RE/MAX technology stack.
“The acquisition of Gadberry Group is another building block in the RE/MAX quest to become the worldwide leader in real estate technology,” said Adam Contos, RE/MAX Holdings CEO. “For our RE/MAX brand, Gadberry Group is highly complementary to both our First app and booj platform, further strengthens our overall technology infrastructure, and bolsters our formidable data and analytic capabilities. For RE/MAX Holdings, Gadberry Group further broadens our revenue mix and represents another attractive avenue for growth.”
Earlier this month, RE/MAX Holdings announced the acquisition of wemlo—a 20-month-old, Florida-based startup in the mortgage broker channel. Wemlo developed the first “Service Cloud” for mortgage brokers, combining third-party loan processing with an all-in-one digital platform. Wemlo will become integrated within the Motto Mortgage product ecosystem and be available to independent mortgage brokerages to retain their services as well.
Both additions are tuck-in acquisitions aimed to diversify RE/MAX Holdings’ revenue and growth opportunities, said the company, while reinforcing the company’s acquisition strategy of adding innovative companies that deliver value and improve the customer experience.
