 “Speed is everything; our ability to get property data to the industry before the large corporates is a game-changer. The speed of property data will help all people working in the industry make better and more timely decisions, which means vendors and landlords will also be able to make better property decisions.


It also strongly benefits agents collectively working together to help future-proof our industry, which we all work so hard in. Now is the right time to bring new technology, data, and people together to deliver a better experience for the industry and I’m excited to bring my experience and expertise to the team.”

Valocity Founder and Global CEO Carmen Vicelich said,
