    Horizon in Public Beta to Deliver Trusted Contacts by Location

    by Drew Meyers on January 28, 2015

    If you read this blog, you likely know I’ve been working on Horizon for the better part of a year. The starting point is Couchsurfing/AirBnB within your own trusted network; but the long term vision is trusted contacts by location. We may be crazy, but we believe Horizon is a product with potential to be on every single smartphone in the world. We’re getting close with the product. We’ve been in private beta for more than a month — and some of you may have seen we went into public … Read More »

Is There a Real Estate Moonshot In the Works?

Posted on by Drew Meyers

moon

Zillow purchased Trulia. News Corp purchased Realtor.com. Clearly, there are things happening in the real estate industry. Joel thinks 2015 will be a big year in real estate tech. I tend to agree. But is anything really really big happening? Perhaps a real estate industry moonshot? If the answer is yes, what is the opportunity? OpenDoor (closing on a house in 3 days)? Transaction management? Someone truly solving the trust opportunity? Something else? ** If you want to think further about this topic, listen to this podcast … Read More »

MRIS In Talks With Zillow on Direct Listing Feed

Posted on by Michael Price

Zillow is in negotiations with MRIS to establish a direct data feed of broker listings ahead of the looming cancellation of Zillow’s ListHub syndication contract. “It is the sole prerogative of the Listing Broker to decide where their inventory appears,” said Jon Coile, MRIS Chairman of the Board.  “Our role at MRIS is simply to provide a secure and reliable pipeline.” Through this partnership, MRIS brokers would be able to have their listings sent directly to Zillow, so that their current listings on Zillow.com and Zillow’s portfolio … Read More »

Realtors Giving Back – Home For Home.

Posted on by Caroline Pinal

Elba’s dream was to own a home with a real floor and a front door so her children could sleep in safety and comfort. Thanks to the passion of Giveback Homes Members and our partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Nicaragua, that dream became a reality. Last month, soon after I first introduced Giveback Homes to you all, I had the pleasure of leading five real estate agents on a journey to help build a home for Elba and her three beautiful children. Giveback Homes Members David, Chad, Sarah, Susan … Read More »

The Future Listing Syndication Landscape

Posted on by Drew Meyers

Syndication_Image

Here’s a rough prediction for what will take the place in the listing syndication arena after the “ListHub-Zillow divorce” (for more analysis on the deal, read Rob Hahn’s thoughts here and here): Zillow will continue to invest in their listing management and reporting dashboard. Brokers & MLS’ will want an independent vendor that will send their listings to all portals, with no vested interest in any particular portal. Companies like Bridge & ListTrac will focus on being unbiased as a point of differentiation, and gain traction with early … Read More »

Why Usability Testing Does Not Work For Me

Posted on by Bryn Kaufman

In my recent post about Responsive Design, I received an interesting comment from one reader. He said that my point is misleading, has no technological merit, I have no idea what I am writing about, and I should delete my post. Despite this not so favorable response (LOL), I also had another comment, which gave me the idea for this post. It also reminded me why I post, as I like the ideas that come from getting and giving feedback to these posts. Regarding Usability … Read More »
