In our latest serious estate tech entrepreneur interview, we’re talking with Michael Worthington from Brightdoor & HomeRover.
Who are you and what do you do?
My identify is Michael Worthington and I am the co-founder and CEO of BrightDoor. Since co-founding the small business, my principal focus has been leadership all over item ideation as well as internet marketing and model management. I am the creator of the recently introduced HomeRover livestream video residence tour application.
What trouble does your item/assistance solve?
Serious estate brokers normally locate them selves having to execute dwell residence tours for distant purchasers employing off-the-shelve apps like FaceTime and Skype that only present the dwell video element. And, normally the agent and household hunters are hampered by not having typical products or apps. Last but not least, the users really don’t have the potential to replay the tour and share with others included in the residence shopping for approach. HomeRover is a smartphone application for iOS and Android that solves all of these challenges and adds even additional benefit by replicating all elements of the scheduling, setting up and execution of a private residence tour working experience.
What are you most fired up about correct now?
Though the current COVID-19 disaster is absolutely practically nothing to be fired up about, I do sense that the industry’s change to online tools may last but not least crack the dam open (so to talk) with regards to use of revolutionary technological know-how in serious estate. As an entrepreneur, it’s been challenging to innovate in this house (for a myriad of causes). I’m fired up that that may transform now.
What’s following for you?
I’m going to be operating diligently to expand adoption of the HomeRover system and glimpse for strategic partnerships to lengthen the potential to make a distant, livestream residence tour a natural option for homebuyers.
What’s a trigger you’re passionate about and why?
I’ve normally been fascinated in movies and filmmaking (a single of my college or university majors at UNC-Chapel Hill was Tv set & Film). I’m thrilled that numerous of the long-standing limitations that have held minorities out of vital roles in cinema have been eroding and crumbling. Though I really don’t have an official business I’m currently aligned with, I do assistance unbiased filmmaking and the more growth of minority-led projects.tour
