Our Mission

Help Commerical Real Estate
Find, Advance, and Close More Deals

RealtyAds envisions a future where every commercial real estate agent and owner leverages leasing enablement software as a foundational component of tenant acquisition and retention.

At RealtyAds, we will only create technology that further advances this ambition and gives our customers a strategic advantage in the marketplace. With our expertise in artificial intelligence, the promise of its future, and the efficiencies it offers our customer base, we believe AI is critical in executing this goal.

How it Works

Founder & President

Trevor Marticke

Trevor is the Founder & President of RealtyAds. After more than ten years in brokerage at Cushman & Wakefield and Transwestern, Trevor recognized legacy leasing channels are expensive, provide little to no measurable results, and are mostly unsuccessful in reaching key audiences that impact deal activity. To remedy this, Trevor founded RealtyAds. RealtyAds leasing enablement software uses AI to build clients a presence on the world’s most effective customer acquisition channels, ultimately helping clients find, advance, and close more deals. By providing CRE with the most cost-efficient and effective market reach, RealtyAds organically grew to service properties in more than 115 markets across 6 countries. When he's not working, Trevor is spending time with his family, golfing, and hiking the mountains of North Carolina.
