Estately sometimes gets overshadowed in the online real estate industry by bigger consumer brands such as Redfin and Zillow. But the six-year-old Seattle upstart continues to push ahead, announcing today that it is expanding into the Dallas/Fort Worth area and Westchester and Putnam counties of New York.
The expansion comes after Estately didn’t open any new markets in 2011, instead focusing on scaling and building out existing operations, said co-founder Galen Ward.
But now the company is ready to grow, and it has its eyes especially glued on Texas.
“Dallas is a huge market with the healthiest real estate market in the nation – the oil boom never collapsed,” explained Ward. “We added Westchester because we are already in New York — all of Long Island.”
Estately also operates in Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania, California, Illinois, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia and Georgia. It claims more than 437,000 properties for sale.
