Our Story

Our Founders

We're a team of property lawyers and technologists who recognise the significant inefficiencies in the legal aspects of buying property.

After coming up with an idea to help iron out some of these inefficiencies, Judith Hammerschlag and co-founder Danny Sandler assembled an exceptional team to help build Contrax.

The current process is broken. We’re trying to help fix it by bringing together technology and remarkable legal service.

At its core, buying a property in Australia revolves around the contract of sale. When a buyer is interested in purchasing a property, the traditional process requires the real estate agent to send out the contract of sale to the interested buyer. The buyer then engages a lawyer or conveyancer to provide them with a legal review of the contract.

For one property, this occurs multiple times with multiple lawyers and conveyancers providing numerous legal reviews of the same contract. Lots of waiting and lots of wasted time and effort.

This process is cumbersome, inefficient, and prone to inconsistency, and we believe that Contrax can do better.
