real estate, technology, and media.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”Innovation-dis-sec”]In a world increasingly dominated by large institutions and very specialized businesses, John F. Groom has taken a different path, engaging in a wide variety of entrepreneurial ventures, always trying to find a new and better way of creating value, focusing on real estate, technology, and media.

Our current focus is Casa Command, an app we believe will change the way real estate is built, managed, insured, and fixed – and the way that people move.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row cth_layout=”monolit_page_sec” el_class=”technology-main-sec”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”978″ img_size=”full” el_class=”technology-img-sec”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text el_class=”technology-dis-sec”]

Groom was in charge of the website and developing complex online financial tools.

The back end developed at AnnuityNet is now used to power about 25,000 transactions a month representing $2 billion in premium, and is used by all the major insurance companies in the US.
