Redfin combines its own full-service agents with modern technology to redefine real estate in the consumer’s favor. Homebuyers and sellers enjoy a full-service, technology-powered experience from Redfin real estate agents, while saving thousands in commissions. Redfin serves more than 80 major metro areas across the U.S. The company has closed more than $40 billion in home sales.

Commenting on the company’s IPO day success, Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman said in a GeekWire interview:

“It’s a big day for Redfin. But it’s not just about going public, it’s not just about making money, it’s not just about building a great business, it’s about making real estate better for regular people,” he said. “We have done it our way, with real estate agents and software engineers working together as partners, where we are one Redfin.”

As the only major brokerage building virtually all of their own software, Redfin is internally designed for growth. The company utilizes next-generation technology, like machine learning, and comprehensive listings data to make buying and selling homes easier, faster, and less expensive for consumers.

“Redfin has been redefining the real estate industry since its inception, and we are proud to have them join Nasdaq’s family of innovative companies as they continue to disrupt the market with new and unprecedented ideas,” said Nelson Griggs, Executive Vice President, Head of Global Listings, Nasdaq.
