UpstreamRE, LLC – the real estate broker-owned and controlled data management company that governs Upstream, a collaborative broker initiative – has appointed Gurtej Sodhi to its board of managers.
Upstream is a comprehensive data management project that aims to deliver a universal system for real estate listing information and distribution. In development since 2014, the goal with Upstream is to bring Google Drive-esque technology to real estate.
Upstream is managed by a tiered board of managers, as well as networks and national franchisors. As the chief information and operations officer for Crye-Leike Real Estate Services, Sodhi’s seat on the Upstream board represents large firms.
“Our board of managers is one of the strongest boards of directors in the real estate industry,” said Alex Lange, president and chief executive officer of UpstreamRE, LLC who confirmed Sodhi’s appointment.
“More than a platform for brokerage data entry, management, storage and distribution, Upstream is the culmination of an industry groundswell to take back control of brokerage data,” Sodhi said. “Brokers of every size are frustrated with how inefficiently they leverage one of their greatest assets – data. Upstream then gives brokers full control to distribute their data simply and efficiently.”
