In 2008, Jeremy Sicklick, a partner and managing director at Boston Consulting Group at the time, was confronted with the fact that the residential real estate industry was in dire need of modernization given the lapses in recordkeeping and the lack of common data standards. Given the lack of transparency and data standards, Sicklick co-founded HouseCanary in 2013 to provide every player in the residential real estate space with better, more reliable data. Co-founding the company with Chris Stroud, who now serves as co-founder and chief of research, HouseCanary has been digitizing and indexing information about every home, every mortgage and every neighborhood across the country.
Sicklick, who now serves as CEO, and the HouseCanary team have built a set of next-generation valuation solutions that are powerfully detailed, predictive and accurate. Sicklick drives the company’s vision, strategy and growth to identify interesting and unique ways to use data to maximize value in real estate.
