At ERA Real Estate, Vardhan is responsible for advancing the next generation of internal products and platforms, and fostering engagement and productivity between the organization’s technology, sales, marketing, and executive leadership team.

“Mukesh brings extensive experience with technology that has redefined the way people make purchasing decisions,” said Dave Collins, COO of ERA Real Estate. “His leadership and product management vision are a perfect fit for what we’re building at ERA, and we’re thrilled to have Mukesh join our team.”

Vardhan spent 12 years working at Apple, serving the company from its pre-iPhone days up until the iPhone 5, while also helping create Apple’s one-stop customer support portal used by 30,000 global support agents. At eBay, Vardhan leveraged data and predictive analytics to discover solutions to help prevent and mitigate fraud while also improving the transaction process.

“There is so much weight in a real estate transaction – financially, emotionally – and I’m looking forward to harnessing the power of data to make the process smoother, safer and more seamless for both clients and agents,” said Vardhan.  “I am excited to join ERA, and leverage my technology skills to improve the home buying and selling experience, both online and in the real world.”
