Business Description :
Real Matters Inc. is a leading network management services provider for the mortgage lending and insurance industries. Real Matters' Platform combines its proprietary technology and network management capabilities with tens of thousands of independent qualified Field Agents to create an efficient marketplace for the provision of mortgage lending and insurance industry services. The Platform facilitates competition between Field Agents, such as residential real estate appraisers, to deliver performance-driven services, which brings superior quality, transparency and efficiency to Real Matters' clients.

Real Matters' Platform was created to address key issues within the mortgage lending and insurance industries. The Company built its Platform to create a long-term competitive advantage relative to traditional service providers, who have comparatively high-touch, labour intensive and costly operations.

The efficiencies provided by the Platform allow for fewer touch points, which reduces the Company's cost structure and results in high Contribution Margins for Real Matters.
