My guest in this episode is Joe Rossi, the national sales and go-to-market director of the property data provider National Property Group.
National Property Group connects Australian property professionals with ready-to-use, property data, marketing and sales platforms to power strategic business growth. They have a long heritage in the property industry - for those with long memories, they were born out of EAC and Red Square which makes them - as they state - a 60 year old startup.
But they launched as National Property Group in 2020 and now boast 12 million property records, 107 million property images and 250 m records on sales and lease listings - and an API that is open and affordable for proptechs to experiment with.
