BELLEVUE, WASH. – Feb. 27, 2024 – Equity Angels, an organization dedicated to fostering fair access to opportunity, has partnered with the MIAMI Association of Realtors® (MIAMI), the nation’s largest local Realtor association, to advance their shared mission and values of building a more inclusive and innovative real estate ecosystem.


“Our dedication to diversity, equity and inclusion is reflected through our actions and the initiatives we have supported throughout the years,” stated Teresa King Kinney, CEO of MIAMI. “The Equity Angels collaboration represents our continued commitment to focusing on the principles that matter most to our members and the communities we serve, which include growing both our equitable efforts and our technology offerings.”


Equity Angels is invested in the success of tech entrepreneurs and founders and there is no better market than Miami, which has a growing tech hub and is perennially ranked among the most entrepreneurial cities in the United States. This is Equity Angels’ first-ever partnership with a real estate association and will serve to create access to new initiatives and resources for development and growth between Proptech innovators and real estate professionals.


“We have made it our mission to reshape the Proptech ecosystem into one where creativity and innovation can thrive equally — regardless of race, gender or age,” remarked Kenya Burrell-VanWormer, Founder and Managing Partner of Equity Angels. “And as a forward-thinking association leading the charge on both inclusive programs and technology adoption, partnering with MIAMI was our top priority.”


MIAMI has been at the forefront of innovation with such initiatives as their multi-state data-sharing partnerships, resulting in reciprocal MLS access with 265,000+ REALTORS® nationwide; a home listing portal partnership with Nestfully to create a seamless, ad-free connection to local agents; and their participation with Second Century Ventures REACH Labs Program to build relationships with local technology investors, incubators, university programs and entrepreneurs.


Equity Angels recently announced its first accelerator program for Proptech startups. Application details are available here:
