My take-aways from the event were several fold: The community MetaProp has built in one year is impressive. I’d say they got 100 people there at 9 am on a Tuesday. That’s hard to do, particularly in NYC. The venue they secured for the day was superb (aka spectacular). 7 World Trade Center, 10th floor. Very impressive presentations as a whole by their 5 initial participants – Rentalutions, Radiator Labs, SocialSign.in, Notion, and Optii … Read More »

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 »
