    A Few Thoughts after at Week in NYC At Inman Connect

    by Drew Meyers on February 2, 2016

    Last week was spent at Inman Connect in NYC. The primary reason for the trip was meeting with potential enterprise partners for the recently redesigned StreetAdvisor.com. The other part of my time there was spent helping my dear friends at Giveback Homes with their Startup Alley booth. It was great to spend time with Caroline Pinal (see below photo), and speak to brokers and agents about the great benefits Giveback Homes provides its members. As you no doubt know from reading this blog, I’m a huge, huge … Read More »

Q&A With Robin Leigh of Certified Charitable Giving Alliance

Posted on by Drew Meyers


Another company I spoke with while in New York last week at Inman Connect’s Startup Alley was the Certified Charitable Giving Alliance (CCG Alliance). I spoke with co-founder and CEO, Robin Leigh, for a few minutes and learned a bit about her mission and organization. Since it’s not exactly a secret I’m a fan of anything in the social good space (see this), I asked her to answer a few questions and she obliged. Her answers are below… What do you do? The CCG Alliance™ creates and … Read More »

GeekWire Interview: Zillow at 10 (with Rich, Lloyd, and Spencer)

Posted on by Drew Meyers


It seems there is virtually unlimited desire for insight into that very, very large real estate company based in Seattle that starts with the magical letter “Z“. To satisfy that curiosity, John and Todd at GeekWire interviewed Zillow co-founders Rich Barton and Lloyd Frink, along with early exec and now CEO Spencer Rascoff, and released it as a podcast for your listening pleasure… Listening while I work today at Galvanize in Pioneer Square makes me think back to many of the moments I referenced earlier this … Read More »

Naked Apartments Acquired by Zillow

Posted on by Drew Meyers


I just saw the news that Zillow Group acquired Naked Apartments for $13 million in cash. Zillow is definitely investing heavily in rentals. Current renters are tomorrow’s buyers, and they obviously realize it’s cheaper to acquire that traffic ahead of the pack rather than compete for it when they are actually ready to buy (when everyone else is bidding on it too). I still believe Zillow’s biggest competitor in rentals long term will be a very unexpected player, not really in the real estate industry at all currently: AirBnB. (I’ve … Read More »
