Ucloser began with a simple realization: real estate transactions are complex and opaque. As John Williamson, founder of Ucloser likes to say, “When you buy a book from Amazon.com, you can track it every step of the way from the warehouse to your doorstep. When you buy or sell a home, shouldn’t you have the same amount of insight?”
Founded in Louisville, KY in 2009, Ucloser provides a unique set of solutions for the real estate industry, with a powerful, business-oriented software platform that helps our customers convert online leads and increase productivity.
Ucloser has two truly unique advantages that give our clients a solution they cannot find elsewhere:
- Consumer Facing: every buyer and seller has their own Home Toolkit account to organize the buying and selling experience, while working more closely with their agent and recommended service providers.
- Configurable Workflow: the entire transaction file and consumer experience can be uniquely configured to match the needs of any size or type of client.
Real estate transactions involve many participants: buyers and sellers, agents, brokers, inspectors, appraisers, lenders, title companies, attorneys and others. Historically the communication among these parties is haphazard and de-centralized. Our software platform enables secure, universal sharing of data, documents, messages and milestones among the participants.
Our customers represent a diverse snapshot of the real estate industry, including traditional brokerages; asset management companies, law firms and brokerages that specialize in distressed property management; title and escrow companies; real estate investors; and independent transaction coordinators.

John is a passionate software entrepreneur and an aggressive innovator, focused on creating a powerful, intuitive information management platform for the real estate industry. John got his first glance into real estate investing while working as a consultant, where it rapidly became apparent that real estate transactions were complex, with many parties lacking easy access to information. In 2008 John founded Ucloser, LLC to focus on software opportunities in the real estate industry.
Under John’s guidance Ucloser has evolved from a simple document and transaction management system into a mission-critical business system for its customers. Rather than create a one-size-fits-all product that ultimately fits no one, John created a platform that allows each customer to tune the product precisely to their business. Ucloser provides each customer with a customized set of capabilities while operating from a single, shared software platform. Customers run the gamut from traditional brokerages to law firms, from specialists in short sales and REOs to national title companies.
Before Ucloser, John co-founded 3rd Dimension Design, a web development company that architected, designed and developed custom web-based software for corporate clients, including Gray Construction and CRST International. CRST uses the collaboration tool designed by 3rd Dimension to schedule and track over 1600 drivers, saving a six-digit sum annually relative to their older methods.
When sports news publishing network iHigh was ready to pursue a major expansion on the web, they chose John as the CEO of iHigh.com. John presided over the creation and implementation of the business, which provides news, video and game broadcasts for high school sports teams nationwide, as well as customized websites for the teams.
After iHigh.com John founded Whiteboard Enterprises, a technology and business consulting firm that worked with businesses to fine-tune their business strategies, and to manage the development of their web applications. Whiteboard clients include eHomeAmerica.org, a national non-profit that deploy a custom web-based system to educate, test and certify new homeowners as part of the NeighborWorks America program.
John’s entrepreneurial roots are deep, extending back to painting and lawncare businesses he founded as a teen. During his college years John was President of the University of Kentucky Entrepreneurs Club, an active group that has spun off numerous young and growing companies.
