Ghar360

Posted on by Drew Meyers

I came across Ghar360 on ProductHunt last week, and it reminded me of the fact that I spoke to many entrepreneurs working on floorplan sites while doing business development for Zillow from 2007 until my departure 2010 to follow my travel passion (leading to Oh Hey World, and now Horizon).

Fred Ehrsam on BitCoin

Posted on by Drew Meyers

This presentation by Fred Ehrsam (CEO of CoinBase) was shared on AVC yesterday, and I thought it was worth highlighting here.

The key to having these pages though is growing them over time with internal linking, backlinking and always making them … Read More »

Yesterday NAR president, Steve Brown, sent the FAA a statement letter on NAR’s position in the use of drones in real estate marketing (along with an education on using the REALTOR® trademark). NAR sees the use of the technology as a “game changer” in the marketing of real property. What are your thoughts? Game changer or just another nifty listing enhancement?
