Otta's take

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Tomo is a fintech startup looking to revolutionize the real estate industry, which has been lagging behind other crucial modern sectors in terms of leveraging the potential of new technological developments. Tomo’s ambition is strong, and whilst it's keeping its horizons broad, the company is starting with a mortgage and transaction platform aimed at making the transaction process smoother for both estate agents and consumers.

The founding members of Tomo are both former executives at the real estate database giant Zillow, and their impressive seed funding includes backing from Trulia co-founder Pete Flint and Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff. This level of confidence and experience puts the company in good stead within the increasingly competitive real estate tech industry. What's more, Tomo is smart to place equal emphasis on the buyer as well as the seller - this distinguishes its platform from more seller-centric offerings like Zillow Offer and OpenDoor.

With impressive seed funding and investor confidence, coupled with experienced leadership and a potentially massive market, Tomo is well-positioned to deliver on its ambitious promise.
