Redfin Announces Redfin Matchmaker
Sep 5 13
Redfin announced Redfin Matchmaker, new technology for recommending unexpected listings to clients. The technology incorporates the client's individual activity on the website, as well as data from millions of Redfin users to present alternative properties to the Redfin agent for review. The agent evaluates the recommendations then suggests potential matches to clients. Only Redfin takes into account online and in-person activity to make better listing recommendations, with guidance driven by both algorithms and agents. Redfin Matchmaker proved itself in the earliest phases of product testing, with more than 20 homes already sold or in-progress. Chicago Redfin Agent Carrie Georgitsis suspected a bug in the software when Redfin Matchmaker suggested homes in San Diego for her clients Jackie and Erik Pampel, who were looking in Chicago. A few hours later, Carrie received a call from Jackie with news of their plans to fulfill a long-time dream of living in San Diego. The couple ended up closing on a home in Carlsbad, CA with Redfin agent Jordan Clarke, who used Redfin Matchmaker to help the Pampels narrow down a broad selection of neighborhoods.
