Qualia and Adeptive Software have been named winners in HousingWire’s ninth annual HW Tech100 Real Estate awards, recognizing the most innovative technology companies in the U.S. housing sector.

Each year, the Tech100 program aims to provide an updated, comprehensive list of the most impactful companies in real estate, enabling housing professionals to identify partners offering the best solutions. Over the past year, the need for more digital solutions—particularly within real estate, an industry that has historically relied on manual, in-person processes—became abundantly clear in light of the pandemic. This year’s Tech100 winners have helped those in the housing economy create new processes and adopt new technologies to navigate the housing market under extraordinary circumstances. 

“After the uncertainty and unpredictability of last year, we expected a greater adoption of technology. However, these 100 real estate and mortgage companies took digital disruption to a whole new level and propelled a complete digital revolution, leaving a digital legacy that will impact borrowers, clients and companies for years to come,” said Brena Nath, HousingWire’s HW+ Managing Editor. ”Knowing what these companies were able to navigate and overcome, we’re excited to announce this year’s list of the most innovative technology companies serving the mortgage and real estate industries.” 

Over the last year, Qualia has continued its mission to make it easier to buy and sell homes, transforming real estate closings from a chaotic, in-person, paper-based process into a fully digital experience. Qualia has aggressively expanded its suite of products for an increasingly broad set of customers, including a platform supporting technology-enabled real estate companies such as realtor.com®, a native Remote Online Notarization platform to make it possible to close on a home fully remotely, and new platforms for both mortgage lenders and title insurers that digitizes their processes with title agents. At the end of 2020, Qualia acquired Adeptive, the developer of ResWare, a complementary technology company working towards digital solutions for real estate professionals through a uniform technology infrastructure.

Today, Qualia powers transactions for millions of people a year and is the leading real estate partner ecosystem for over 500,000 lenders, title & escrow companies, real estate agents, and technology vendors across the country.
