DENVER, July 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Redefy Corporation (OTC Pink: RDCO) today announced that it has engaged ALAW, a full-service real estate law firm with attorneys practicing in eleven offices across the Southeastern United States. ALAW represents institutional and private lenders, as well as investors, throughout the loan life cycle from origination to liquidation. ALAW is owned and controlled by James (Jim) Albertelli, Esq., a member of Redefy’s board of directors and a shareholder.
Redefy has engaged ALAW to provide legal and administrative services to facilitate Redefy’s nationwide real estate licensure and ensure robust regulatory and compliance rigor enterprise-wide. In addition, ALAW will play a significant role in Redefy’s national business development initiatives.
In June, Redefy announced the launch of its RedefyDIY platform, which makes it faster, easier and less expensive for homeowners to list residential real estate for sale. Initially available in Florida and Texas, RedefyDIY was built to support retail and high-volume enterprise clients with consistent processes, exceptional service, digital reporting and flat-fee pricing nationwide.
Redefy’s technology supports data exchange directly with enterprise clients to increase speed, accuracy and transparency in sales transactions, resulting in significant cost and time savings. Redefy’s clients include asset managers, banks, loan servicers, builders, rental holding companies and professional home flippers.
“Redefy continues to seek top-talent and best-in-class service providers to facilitate growth from a retail focused firm in select markets to a company that can service retail and enterprise clients nationwide,” said Chris Rediger, Chief Executive Officer of Redefy. “ALAW will be invaluable in helping us to navigate the legal, regulatory and compliance issues associated with nationwide expansion, as well as helping us complete our enterprise service rollout and attract new clients.”
ALAW is approved by leading underwriters and is trusted by the nation’s largest financial institutions. ALAW is certified to comply with the 7 Best Practice Standards of the American Land Title Association Best Practices, and exceeds ISO27002 benchmark standards for business processes, information technology controls and data security.
“Achieving the necessary level of data security to transact nationally for the nation's largest property portfolio holders is incredibly difficult,” said Scott Petronis, Chief Product and Technology Officer for Redefy. “We are building out the infrastructure, processes and certifications needed to support these institutions and ALAW has been an incredible help in offering guidance, expertise and support.”
“We believe Redefy has the potential to transform the way real estate is transacted in the U.S. They have created a process and system that removes friction in the transaction for enterprise clients, as well as individual home owners. We are excited for the opportunity to help them optimize the offering and look forward to helping them leverage the platform for the benefit of their enterprise clients,” said Jim Albertelli, Chief Executive Officer of ALAW.
