Over 150 industry insiders ventured to Rogers Park on the far north side of Chicago on March 31st—gathering at the Historic Frank Lloyd Wright’s Emil Bach House for the official launch of Truepad. With cocktails in hand, guests (including local tastemakers and realtors), were able to tour the property and learn more about the app, dubbed “the next generation of home search” from Truepad’s Co-Founders Paul Lazarre and Scott Hammack and Chief Operating Officer Greg Hila, who were also on hand at the private event. “After nearly two years of building out infrastructure, it feels good delivering an innovative new approach to home search,” said Truepad Co-founder Scott Hammack.
Attendees nibbled on passed hors d’oeuves from FIG Catering such as house cured salmon on a corn scallion waffle with maple mascarpone and micro burger on brioche with garlic aioli and enjoyed drinks from the bar located in the home’s Japanese Tea Garden in the backyard. Enjoying craft beer, white wine and cider ales, guests indulged in local craft breweries, (Revolution Brewing, Begyle Brewing and Krankshaft Brewing) as well as craft beers from Great Lakes Brewing and Left Hand Brewing. It was quite the night for real estate aficionados—and Chicago’s growing tech industry.
