Meet the Founders
We work hard every day to create a better future!
Philip Askeroth
Co-founder & CEO
Philip comes from a colorful background, both personally and professionally. Originally from Sweden, Philip grew up in Germany and moved to New York to pursue a degree in business in '99. He was awarded his BA in Business Summa Cum Laude from St. Francis, Brooklyn in 2006.

While attending St. Francis, Philip decided to expand on his affection for architecture and real estate, and joined his first real estate company in 2006, where his passion and talent for the business enabled him to rise to success quickly. Within a few years, Philip took over the management of the company's Midtown office, before starting his own brokerage in 2011.

His vision, drive and passion for a better future led him to start working on a concept that would "evolutionize" the way we trade real estate. Today, Philip is Co-Founder and CEO of Realicity.

Impact Strategy
We strive to make a difference in, and provide benefit to the communities in which we live and work. While we leverage technology at alleviate paper waste and transportation related energy consumption, we actively support urban farming initiatives in inner cities, support green-scaping city streets by donating trees to residents, and educating consumers on the opportunities and incentives around energy retrofitting to save money and the environment.

Realicity aims to introduce a paperless, electronic transactions process to lower the environmental impact of printed applications, leases and contracts.
Remote Viewings
Realicity enables fully immersive, remote Virtual Tour viewings to cut down on energy and emissions produced by redundant property visits.
Non-profit Partners
Realicity has partnered with local, non-profit organizations and is actively engaged in urban farming, green-scaping and energy retrofitting.
LOVE WHAT YOU CREATE
Do Good while doing Well!
Partnerships
Realicity is actively engaged with non-profit partners across the following fields:
Our Urban farming initiative evolves around planting, cultivating and harvesting organic produce in public housing projects around NYC to provide healthier food and meet the needs of the ever-developing urban life.
URBAN FARMING
Our Green-scaping efforts are centered around tree-lining inner city streets to create a healthier, happier and safer environment for urban dwellers. Realicity is committed to sponsoring the planting of a tree in New York City for every transaction completed by our users.
GREEN-SCAPING
Our Green or Home Energy Retrofit efforts involve educating consumers on the opportunities and incentives around energy retrofitting their homes to save money and the environment. The result is a reduction in energy use and more efficient overall operation.
