Kiavi Named Among Most Innovative Tech Companies by HousingWire

Award recognizes Kiavi for its leading technology to help real estate investors revitalize America’s aged homes 

SAN FRANCISCO — March 10, 2022 — Kiavi, a leading provider of financing to real estate investors (REIs) through its technology platform, today announced it has been selected as a 2022 HousingWire Tech100 Real Estate winner. Kiavi, which received the Tech 100 real estate award for the fifth year in a row, was among the organizations recognized as the most innovative technology companies in the housing economy.

“The real estate industry is ready to leapfrog into the digital age. We are thrilled to receive this recognition as we continually innovate to meet the needs of our real estate investor customers. Through our technology platform, real estate investors can access funding faster, scale their business and unlock the true potential of their real estate investments,” said Michael Bourque, CEO of Kiavi. “With $25 trillion of aging housing stock in this country, our customers benefit from our modern tools and technology as they revitalize aged homes and make them move-in ready for millions of families. And we are proud to partner with them and help people live better through real estate.” 

Kiavi’s technology makes the lending process efficient, transparent and reliable. Through Kiavi’s data, customers can get an accurate prediction of a home’s after-repair value, resulting in increasing their chances of a successful exit. 

Each year, the Tech100 program grows more competitive and the applicants increase in caliber as the demand for technology in the industry continues to progress. For the third year in a row, the Tech100 program was presented in two groups — HW Tech100 Mortgage and HW Tech100 Real Estate — to highlight the innovation and achievements of organizations within both sectors.

“This year’s list of Tech100 honorees proves once again that innovation within housing is vital in differentiating the organizations who will thrive and those who will be left behind,” said Clayton Collins, CEO of HW Media. “This list spotlights the innovators that are making the housing sector better and more sustainable by increasing efficiency, improving user and borrower experiences and bringing elasticity and improvements to age-old processes.”
