Expert panelist for AVLmeetup's "2022 In Review - An overview of '22's Retail, Mortgage & Investor Markets." (January 10th, 2023)
Zac is the author of the Ruiz Report, the most widely read real estate market report in Western NC, and he is the founder of remc - real estate mission control. remc is dedicated to revolutionizing how data-driven real estate is done with their industry leading Agent Performance Management system (look up any agent in CanopyMLS's report card here!).
He's also a local broker, landlord, a real estate investor, and he's happy to share his expertise on all sorts of things you shouldn't do from his adventures in DIY home renovations.
Zac has lived many lives - he was a Marine Infantry Sgt with two tours to Iraq, he spent some time on Capitol Hill with Florida International University's Office of Federal Relations, and he had a fast-but-furious career at JPMorgan's investment bank in NYC before going all-in on entrepreneurship.
Since making the leap he's started a business in the short-lived temporary gold foil tattoo industry with the artists from Miami Ink ("it was a good idea at the time!"), designed, patented and produced a product in the plastic mold injection industry, and put his experience to work for others as a business consultant for clients ranging from realtors/brokerages to yoga studios to weighing solutions resellers.
Every step along the way made it increasingly clear to him that data and automation were the keys to any business' success at scale, so he began programming in 2019 and now focuses exclusively on real estate technology.
