BELLEVUE, WASH. (PRWEB) MAY 17, 2019
The Constellation Real Estate Group (CREG), a leading provider of scalable SaaS products in the real estate industry, announced the successful completion of its acquisition of TORCHx, a provider of cloud-based marketing solutions for real estate professionals, from Web.com on May 16, 2019. CREG announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire TORCHx on April 23, 2019.
The acquisition of TORCHx follows CREG’s recent acquisition of Mortgage Builder in April and marks the second in 2019 and 13th in its portfolio of businesses, strengthening CREG’s comprehensive suite of technology solutions for the real estate and mortgage industries.
“The acquisitions of TORCHx and Mortgage Builder expand the breadth of our portfolio into new and existing markets and strengthen our position as the real estate industry’s largest and most secure technology provider,” said Scott Smith, President of Constellation Real Estate Group. “We are excited to welcome the TORCHx customers into the Constellation Real Estate Group family and we look forward to working with all of them.”
“TORCHx has an exciting future ahead – joining Constellation presents a powerful opportunity to leverage decades of expertise to benefit TORCHx customers,” said Sharon Rowlands, CEO and President of Web.com.
Unlike typical private equity firms that consolidate portfolios to sell, the Constellation Real Estate Group has a buy-and-hold investment strategy with a focus on strong solutions and a commitment to being long-term, stable technology partners for the real estate industry. Acquiring TORCHx aligns with CREG’s strategy of investing in vertical market solutions that benefit the real estate professionals that use them.
The acquisition of TORCHx further expands CREG’s presence in an otherwise fragmented real estate technology market, providing sales and marketing solutions, back-office software, and mortgage loan origination and servicing solutions for over half of a million real estate agents, brokerages, MLSs, and banks across the U.S. and Canada.
