INDIANAPOLIS — November 9, 2021 — Shaker, the collaborative transaction management & communication platform built exclusively for real estate professionals and their clients, announces their $2M seed round. High Alpha, Elevate Ventures, and notable angel investors all participated in the round.

Since launching in November of 2020, Shaker continues to gain market share and users. Shaker saw 90% user growth in Q3 and has already supported $447 Million Dollars worth of transactions.

The added investment will fuel new marketing and sales spend as well as increased investment in the engineering team.

“Our vision is to build a platform that allows real estate teams and independent brokers to manage the transaction process via a collaborative platform, bringing teams, vendors, and clients into a single source of truth” states Chris Lucas, CEO of Shaker. “Our investors continue to believe in the platform and the opportunity ahead, but more importantly our customers continue to see immediate value via our sleek user interface and powerful transaction features.”

Shaker already has a robust set of features including a client mobile app to track the progress of their closings. It also allows teams to create automated tasks, emails and text messages. They also launched an integrated DocuSign solution, allowing real estate teams to send and receive contracts via Shaker.

“What set Shaker apart from the other solutions we were considering was it's sleek design.  This is a platform that isn't trying to be all things to all industries.  They know what they're doing in real estate and they do it really well,” states Tiffany Szakal, Broker/Owner at I Heart Grand Rapids. “The client portal with integrated Brokerage preferred vendors list makes us a standout in our market and is a win-win-win for everyone involved, even after the transaction.”

Shaker will be launching a new agent mobile app in Q4, as well as more powerful team features making it one of the most robust transaction platforms for teams. To learn more about Shaker, real estate teams and independent brokers can visit
