Today's guest on Proptech Espresso is Wendy Gilch. Wendy is the CEO and Founder of Selling Later; an ally for consumers that let’s future home sellers and home buyers connect in advance. In addition to giving time back to consumers, Selling Later also peels back the layers of secrecy within the industry by educating consumers on the selling/buying process. Their unbiased platform creates a safe place for consumers to connect, without selling member information or participating in referrals programs. They believe that referral companies work against consumers and agents, and instead allow direct connections between future buyers and sellers. Their mission is to be a trusted ally for consumers by giving them time and transparency in real estate, while also supporting nonprofits.
Wendy is a graduate of Slippery Rock University (yes, it does exist) and currently resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her husband and two kids (three if you count their dog). She believes that a successful founder focuses on solving a problem and supporting those that are making a difference in small communities.
