    NRT’s Flank…is a Flunk

    by Drew Meyers on February 24, 2015

    NRT threw some money at the portal space, with the launch of Homesforsale.com. When I question whether brokerages / franchises have the chops to compete with the big portals (see here), this “portal” is exactly what I mean (in less than 3 minutes of looking)… Not responsive – doesn’t work on mobile.
