Caring for older citizens. This may be due to my grandma’s devotion to the Meals on Wheels business, and my volunteering over the decades with her. Meeting some of the beneficiaries of the program has truly opened my eyes to the level of discrimination and neglect senior citizens of all races and backgrounds endure. Regrettably, there are over ten times the number non-profits established to serve animals – compared to our own men and women. A class of individuals we’ll all become 1 day, if we are lucky enough. The senior citizen population is increasing at exponential rates, along with the social safety they get is hardly enough to live on. Most cannot afford to move to a senior living facility, care for themselves, and the houses they live in. I have plans to get a nonprofit company to address this that I will launch once my current venture is off and running.
I am the founder, Bryan Bowles and CEO of Transactly. After we started building out it, we learned that what we had been building could have a much bigger impact on the industry if it were its own stage. After spending over seven years actively competing with other brokerages, I have come to the realization that what the business really wants is something to build trust and cooperation one of our neighborhood — something to show clients that we genuinely, and together, put their interests first.
Scaling up. We’ve got some very ambitious objectives, and a lot of that can come from more trades being facilitated on our system. We have a great team that’s tested a couple of growth strategies. Now, it’s time to really push those that have passed the exam.
Which are you most excited about at this time?

Our platform is very new. We have taken Reid Hoffman’s advice,”If you’re not embarrassed by the very first version of your product, you’ve launched too late” and intentionally released early to build something based on both the agent and client feedback. We’ve received a lot of really great feedback because our first release last winter, and can not wait to see how those iterations are adopted (or rejected).
Among the important findings was that lots of the best agents on our platform are utilizing transaction coordinators, thus we’ve iterated based on this, and we are now starting to also bring on trade coordinators nationwide to get closer to the transactions, and attain deeper feedback.

What is a cause you’re passionate about and why?
The messy-middle of a home sale, where more than five distinct individuals must collaborate to make a sale happen. Year in, year out, National Association of REALTORS® polls show the most difficult procedure for buying a house — other than finding a single — is comprehending the paperwork and process involved. When there are lots of trade management tools available on the market that help agents and brokers do that, most of them are siloed and have very little emphasis on enhancing the experience for people who matter most — sellers and sellers.
