AUSTIN, TEXAS December 11 — Keller Williams (KW), the world’s largest real estate technology franchise by agent count and the U.S. leader in units and sales volume, announces Conversion Monster won the futuRE, an invitation-only real estate technology, pitch battle.

Powered by Keller Williams, the futuRE pitch battle happened between 29 tech companies that competed for votes from agents to access their businesses operating within the Keller Williams ecosystem and the Keller Cloud, a proprietary, AI-fueled real estate cloud for Keller Williams agents.

“We’re excited to announce the top pitch battle and category winners will receive prioritized integration into the Keller Cloud, as a direct result of live agent votes this week,” said Jeff Tamaru, head of corporate development, Keller Williams. “With futuRE, our aim was to empower our agents with best-in-class solutions to choose how they want to run their business within our platform.”

Announced also yesterday, SocialSurvey was the pitch battle second-place winner and VlogEasy won pitch battle third-place winner. The first-place winner received a $15,000 prize and second place received a $5,000 prize.

Top pitch battle winners will be priority onboarded onto the Keller Cloud ahead of other category winners. The Top 10 futuRE Pitch Battle Category Winners include:

The futuRE event took place at the Aria hotel in Las Vegas on Dec. 9 and 10, 2019. More than 450 real estate leaders on-site voted together with agents in North America via livestream to select 10 finalists, one finalist per category, to prioritize and onboard into the Keller Cloud.

The group of 29 tech companies was selected from an original list of more than 80 companies competing for access into the Keller Cloud during a weeklong voting process that happened in November 2019.

KW collaborates with leading technology companies to enhance the operations of real estate businesses via the Keller Cloud.

In 2019, KW released KW MarketPlace, an app store for KW agents to browse top software integrations made by non-KW developers, in beta. KW MarketPlace is currently available to agents through Command, KW’s smart CRM-plus solution.

Using a Keller Cloud application programming interface, or API, available for outside technology developers, Keller Williams enables the integration of additional top technology tools within an agent’s Keller Cloud solutions.
