Ben Rubenstein

Opcity, Inc.

Ben Rubenstein and fellow Newsmaker Michael Lam co-founded Opcity in December 2015. The technology platform uses large proprietary datasets and applied analytics to match top agents with qualified homebuyers and sellers in real-time with no upfront cost. Opcity’s mission is to make the home-buying and -selling process easier and more efficient for everyone involved. 

As chief executive officer, Rubenstein helped Opcity grow significantly in a short period of time. In less than three years, the company grew to have 400 employees and over 40,000 agents. Move, Inc., a subsidiary of News Corp., entered into an agreement to acquire Opcity earlier this year with a $210 million exit.
