Former Rocket Homes, Better.com, Opendoor executive brings experience building and scaling platforms and consumer experiences
The Real Brokerage Inc. (NASDAQ: REAX), the fastest-growing, publicly traded real estate brokerage, today announced that Christian Wallace, who has held leadership positions at some of the best-known real estate technology companies, has joined the company as Chief of Integrated Home Services.
In the newly created role, Wallace will oversee Real’s consumer-facing products, which are central to the company's mission to simplify life’s most complex transaction. By combining every touchpoint of home buying and selling into a seamless experience, Wallace’s work will help empower consumers to manage every aspect of the transaction lifecycle through a simple mobile application. She reports to Real Chairman and CEO Tamir Poleg.
“Just as Real is changing the landscape for real estate professionals, we are equally committed to revolutionizing the homeownership journey from start to finish for consumers,” Poleg said. “Christian brings the unique combination of being an agent who has also built the customer experiences at some of the leading disruptors in the real estate industry, all of which are in the race to change how people buy and sell homes. I couldn’t be more pleased that Christian will be driving our integrated services platform, which today consists of mortgage and title businesses, but has the potential to become so much more.”
Wallace joins Real from Rocket Homes where she oversaw a number of functions, including business development, back-end operations and the partner real estate agent network. During her tenure at Rocket, she was responsible for a number of initiatives designed to improve the customer experience, which led to improved conversion and retention rates and higher customer satisfaction.
Prior to joining Rocket Homes in 2022, she served as Head of Real Estate Services at Better.com where she was responsible for building a 25-state brokerage business and growing the company’s real estate team from 10 to 2,000 professionals. Earlier, she was a Region Home Advisor Director at Opendoor, where she helped to build and scale all aspects of the iBuyer business.
“There are a lot of companies looking to make it easier for consumers to become homeowners. At Real, the company has made a huge investment by acquiring mortgage and title businesses and everybody is moving in the same direction to help both our agents and their clients be successful,” Wallace said. “As someone who is obsessed with creating the best experience imaginable, Real provides the runway to change the game for consumers.”
Wallace began her real estate career in 2014 following a decade with FedEx Services in a regional sales leadership role. She earned her bachelor’s degree at Texas Tech University and MBA from Rochester Institute of Technology.
