The IRE Story

From lettings to tech

Andrew and Mike

In 2011, former agency owner Andrew Reece and software engineer Mike van Raders set out to transform the industry. Armed with valuable property know-how and some serious engineering chops, the pair got to work building a powerful digital platform that is now used by thousands of customers around the world.

Today, IRE works with leading sales and lettings agents to help them streamline their operations and grow their businesses. Every day, our users rely on IRE software to automate property enquiries, streamline communications, manage viewings, process tenancy applications, and more. If you’re looking to optimise your agency’s workflow, we can help.

After high school Grace spent a couple of years in Europe, traveling, working, and studying at Pau University in France. She is a recent Bachelor of Commerce graduate from Victoria University of Wellington. Grace is keen to use her business skills to advance both herself and her clients in the industry. She is passionate about travel and meeting new people and brings a range of different skills to the team.

Andrew Reece


In 2011, Andrew sold his successful rentals agency and co-founded Inspect Real Estate with Mike van Raders. He’d seen an opportunity to use technology to accelerate agency growth, and he decided to do something about it. A true believer in the power of tech, Andrew travelled from door-to-door in the early days to spread the word about IRE. The door-knocking may have been replaced by digital communication, but Andrew’s as passionate about the platform as he was on day one.

Mike van Raders


Early in his career, Mike designed, developed and managed software systems for Boeing and the Australian Air Force. Today, he leads a team of more than 45 developers who create user-friendly digital tools that are loved by property seekers and estate agents across Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and the UK. It might not be ‘rocket science,’ but Mike still draws on the same ingenuity and problem-solving skills that drew him to engineering in the first place.
