About Us

At RLTY, we believe hard-working real estate agents deserve to get paid today. Too often we have seen transactions closing months after they are under contract or, for rental transaction, months after tenants move in. We built a solution to provide access to commissions seamlessly and transparently so agents can focus on serving their clients, not worrying about cash flow. We limit cumbersome data entry and document submission by agents and streamline the process.
