Lubin Olson hosts the Real Estate Roundtable Luncheon with speaker Andy Barkett, CTO of REX Real Estate Exchange on February 14, 2019.

We are pleased to welcome Andy Barkett, CTO of REX Real Estate Exchange, to our Real Estate Roundtable.  Andy Barkett will discuss the ways technology is impacting the real estate industry: making the MLS obsolete, using AI, virtual reality and machine learning, giving consumers control over their data, and the future of block chain in escrow and title.
REX is the first licensed residential real estate brokerage to successfully circumvent the outmoded MLS real estate agent model through its use of AI, big data and machine learning.  With a fixed 2% commission covering both sides of the home sale transaction and a professional team handling everything from listing to close, including escrow, titling, mortgages and insurance shopping through affiliated businesses, REX has significantly reduced the complexity and stress of home buying and selling.
As REX’s CTO, Mr. Barkett has broken new ground in the application of data science to the residential real estate market, making it faster and easier to match buyers and sellers, producing a superior outcome for both.  REX now operates in California, Colorado, New York, New Jersey and Texas, and is continuing it national roll-out in 2019.  Mr. Barkett is a veteran of the hardware, software, and hyper scale internet industries.  He has worked at Google and Facebook, and was a Sr. Director of Engineering for Livescribe, a consumer electronics company.  Mr. Barkett is an expert on infrastructure scalability and AI.
