Real Messenger

About us

Our mission is to connect and empower the real estate community through technology.

Real Messenger is revolutionizing real estate communication, connecting all stakeholders through our chat app, enabling real-time messaging, documentation, and integration with other real-estate software in a safe and secure environment. Our domain-specific, proprietary AI-trained data further enhances our value proposition, enabling our chat app users to consume curated content to help drive real estate transactions.

Thomas Ma, who hails from one of Hong Kong’s leading real estate developer families, became successful in his own right when he ventured into tech. Ma became an active business leader in PropTech and subsequently brought his passion and in-depth understanding of real estate from international waters to the U.S. market.

Prior to launching Real Messenger, Ma created HOHOJO. The rental marketplace and leasing management system that helped corporate landlords maintain every aspect of their rental properties — from receiving offers to collecting rent payments.

Now, as the CEO of Real Messenger, Ma is leveraging his past learnings to introduce emerging technology to the U.S. real estate industry.

He saw the industry shift towards large PropTech platforms, presenting steep financial hurdles for agents, and decided to develop a new way for agents to showcase their listings. This led him to co-founding Real Messenger, giving agents back control of their listings to generate leads and maximize their online presence.

“The goal is to integrate the fragmented real estate industry businesses into one compatible platform using a social network platform, data, and AI, providing an enhanced value proposition for stakeholders and companies.

Technology such as Real Messenger chat platform has the potential to revolutionize the way the industry operates, making it more efficient, transparent, and customer-centric. Leveraging AI, data, and a social network, the platform redefines how the real estate industry consumes information and conducts transactions.”

“Our technology is redefining how the different stakeholders in the real estate community consume market information and connect. At the same time, our proprietary AI engine enables agents to curate content personalized to the individual engaging with the app, delivering a better customer experience.”
