Rich Swier & SmartZip

Rich Swier describes himself as a “serial entrepreneur.” With a background in computer science, Swier has set his own pace and marched to his own beat in the real estate tech world. In 2021, he achieved a brand new level of success, merging two leading companies in the field of predictive real estate analytics, uniting the power of both to elevate the services he could provide to a towering level. Also bringing these technologies to blockchain networks—the architecture that powers cryptocurrencies—Swier marked an industry first, opening the door for more people to tap into this powerful, scalable foundation. Calling this a “huge achievement,” Swier simultaneously emphasizes that real estate is not built on lines of code, but on human connections. This year, Swier will transition from the Smart Data Group at Constellation Software and launch one of the first ventures spawning from within Constellation, called ROOF.

“We never forget that Real Estate is a people business,” Swier promises. “We will always have an agent first mentality.”
