Editor's note: Technology is a driving force in real estate. From startups to established players, tech companies are constantly innovating, growing and forging partnerships. Here we highlight some of the latest news about the companies that help power the industry. 

Movoto to become exclusive home listing site for GreatSchools

Search portal Movoto, which was acquired by proptech company OJO in 2020, has announced a key partnership with

GreatSchools collects and provides information, including quality rankings, about schools across the nation. Families viewing property listings on Movoto will now have unique access to data about local schools when searching for homes.

"We are ecstatic to announce that Movoto will be the only residential real estate search website exclusively providing home search data to the millions of parents who visit each year," Movoto CEO and Co-founder John Berkowitz said in a news release.

"GreatSchools is a nonprofit that unequivocally shares our vision for transparency in data, and as a real estate company with a large audience, we have a responsibility to not misrepresent our communities. GreatSchools understands the importance of providing high-quality, data-powered educational insights," Berkowitz added.

The companies said the partnership will benefit consumers — particularly families with children shopping for a new home — by giving them additional tools and insights that can aid their decision-making process.

"We aim to provide families with high-quality school information that can support them throughout their child's education," said GreatSchools CEO Jon Deane. "This partnership with Movoto adds to that ease — connecting parents who are navigating significant life changes to relevant, local housing information directly on our platform."
