One market segment that WAV Group has been keeping a close eye on is moving concierge. The company that has raised the most capital and has a relationship with NAR is Updater. Oddly, very few agents report using that service which is primarily known as a company that changes a consumer’s mailing address and sells their information widely. Two other services emerged around the same time, Move Easy and MooveGuru. Over the past twelve months, MooveGuru has emerged as the leader of the pack with a slew of large firm and franchise integrations.
We believe that the sales team at MooveGuru, along with the tight integrations with broker and franchise systems, are the two key catalysts that have driven adoption. MooveGuru also acquired HomeKeepr – one of the leading aggregators of service providers that matter to homeowners.
In a press release issued today, MooveGuru reports that their home service providers have been used over nine million times by agent customers.
