About PlanOmatic - Office photo

Experience You Can Trust

PlanOmatic was established in 2005 after our founders had been working extensively with floor plan creation software. Our full-service platform sprouted from the mission of providing high-quality marketing products using cutting-edge technology and supported with exceptional customer service. Agents across the nation rely on PlanOmatic to help brand themselves professionally and exceed their marketing goals. We know what we’re doing—and it shows.

CEO/Co-Founder

Kori became a CEO before he even received his Corporate Finance degree from Western Michigan University. A “Treky” since age 6, Kori always knew he’d aspire to the level of Captain Kirk. After playing and coaching soccer throughout his life, Kori learned the true value of dedication which, coupled with the importance of family, became the pillars upon which he built his business. Kori may delegate from atop the corporate ladder, but he always makes time to get his hands dirty with the team.

Barr started his tenure back in 2004 before even graduating from Michigan State University. He's the leader of our production team and the definition of dedicated—you’ll rarely find him without his mobile office, even when he’s cheering the Spartans to victory. When Barr's not helping clients with tech support or keeping our quality in check, he dreams about being on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains.

Korin joined the team as our first NYC photographer in 2012 as a transplant from the Bay Area where she learned the trade of photographing luxury RE. Although her name still echoes through the halls of brokerages, she now dons many hats as our Operations Manager, leading our Photography Hiring and Training Department. When she’s not snapping her camera, she can be found cycle touring or strumming her banjo.

Taryn also heads up O Hello Media, a division of PlanOmatic dedicated to experiential marketing photography. When she’s not wearing her many hats at the office, you can find her off at the yoga studio, hanging out with her pup Milo or adventure-seeking in beautiful Colorado.

Ryan was an instant fit at PlanOmatic bringing with him a degree in Computer Programming & Information Systems. We won’t go too far into his intricate technical background, but the professional skill he brought to firms like Edward Jones Investments and Marsh & McLennan Companies is enough to impress Bill Gates. After finding a new forte in sales, Ryan combined his strengths and rose quickly to the challenge of Northeast Account Manager. Also a born traveler, he loves to be on the move for work or leisure—especially if it’s toward the beach—though he’ll never venture too far from his beloved New York.
