Co-Founders David Fleck and Allan Martia

Who and Why

Co-Founders David Fleck and Allan Martia are on a mission: To stop con artists before they can do harm.

They have expansive subject matter expertise in the real estate industry with over 70 between them – David as a real estate lawyer, and Allan as a developer and builder. They also have substantial expertise about the topic of real estate-related fraud crimes – David as a real estate fraud prosecutor and Allan (unfortunately) as a major victim of an infamous con artist known as the Madoff of Beverly Hills. Throw into the mix Allan’s successful exit from another software company and the two of them create an explosively powerful team.
David and Allan intimately know the loopholes in the real estate industry that fraudsters take advantage of, but they approach these problems differently than most startups. Rather than trying to create products that replace existing systems and processes, they seek to improve them.
For example, our society relies upon notaries to ensure that only the true owner of a property can sign a deed that transfers ownership to another person, but modern technology enables criminals to circumvent notaries. This is why they created the Veri-Lock™ Notary App: to enhance the existing notarial process. Also, we use title insurance to protect homebuyers from title fraud that occurred before they purchased the property, but title insurance does not protect homeowners from title fraud that occurs after they own the home. This is why we created TitleShield™: to fill that gap. Like the notary stamp, we rely on engineer and architect stamps to prove the authenticity of construction documents, but these professional seals are easily forged. This is why we are developing the Veri-Lock™ Construction App: to enable municipalities to know with certainty whether documents are real or fake.

Our Vision

David and Allan have two long-term visions: First, each of these products and services gathers public real estate data that nobody currently aggregates, and they plan to develop a suite of data products that compliment the large real estate data companies. Second, each of these products and services form the core of a complete, smartphone-based real estate platform that could be rolled out overnight in developing countries. This second vision will be a game changer for any country that adopts the platform because Peruvian economist Fernando de Soto explains in his seminal book, The Mystery of Capital, that developing countries cannot develop until they have stable, reliable systems to track property ownership histories.
