About Agent Ace
Agent Ace gathers and analyzes data from millions of home sales to connect homebuyers and sellers with the highest-performing real estate agent for their specific home Agent Ace was founded in 2010 and holds two patents from the U.S. Patent Office for its approach to using hyper-local data to calculate agent performance relative to a specific property. After its initial consumer launch in May 2013, Agent Ace was named Most Innovative Real Estate Agent Vendor by Inman News. Agent Ace’s service is currently available to customers in over 70 markets, with more coverage being added regularly. Founded by Mazen Fawaz, the company is headquartered in Santa Monica, CA.
Agent Ace is the brainchild of Mazen Fawaz, who had the kernel of the idea in 2008 when he was running Bond and Hammer Acquisitions, and finding it nearly impossible to reliably and quickly find qualified real estate agents as he looked for sites throughout the Midwest for tenants such as CVS Pharmacy and Walgreens Pharmacy. Mazen decided he could solve the problem using home sales data and “Big Data” analysis, deploying advanced data aggregation techniques and finely tuned algorithms that interpret that data into facts. He immediately got to work, teaming up with Barbara De Lury to found Agent Ace in Santa Monica, California, in 2010.
Mazen then worked to put together the team, the funding and the technology to make Agent Ace a reality, which included establishing the company as a nationwide real estate brokerage with brokers in more than 35 states, and becoming members of each U.S. region’s representative real estate association. In 2012, the company was awarded two patents encompassing the use of hyper-local data to calculate agent performance relative to a home and client preferences, and the initial Agent Connection Engine debuted in May 2013.
Mazen has been an entrepreneur since graduating University of Michigan, when he co-founded PowerOne Corp, an alternative energy supplier (AES) to Michigan’s deregulated electricity marketplace. Mazen also has a passion for fine cars and has served on the Board of Singer Vehicle Design since 2009.
