It serves more than 100 markets in the US and Canada and has 53 million average monthly users on the website and app.

Series host Jason Nazar will speak to Kelman about his experience leading the company five years after its IPO, as well as some of the toughest leadership lessons he’s learned during his more than 25-year career. Topics of discussion include:

  • Disrupting a traditional industry
  • Building a multi-billion dollar company
  • Trends in the real estate market
  • Bringing a company to the stock exchange
  • How to be “The Great Exhilarator”
