RESO Datacomp 30-Day Hackathon Recap

by Seth Siegler on 10:00 am November 1, 2017

The first hackathon I ever participated in was actually just in 2013 when I built an app called Curb Call at the Retsly / Realogy Hackathon in SF.  I got second place at that one which won me an oversized novelty check (plus a smaller sized real one) but it also was a nice excuse to sit down for about 30 straight hours and build an app that I had an idea for. I ended up actually launching that app, raised some VC for it, … Read More »

Lessons from Inman “Hack the App”

by Ed Tee on 9:30 am August 16, 2017

I was privileged to take part in the “Hack the App” session during the Inman Connect event last week.   It gave me some insights into alternative ways of building products for the real estate sector and particularly the role open source could play in that. The session was not like a traditional hackathon where teams compete to create a product from scratch. Rather, an idea had been conceived beforehand and some thought had already gone into how it should work. This was a great way … Read More »

6 Quotes From Inman Connect (SF) That Will Improve Our Brokerage

by Justin Britt on 3:15 pm August 2, 2011

I just got back from Inman Connect San Francisco and can I say, “amazing?” The ideas shared at Inman are nothing short of cutting edge, and when used properly can lead to huge growth as a brokerage. This same wealth of info, however, can also hurt you. Bill Chee—one of the reasons I got into Real Estate—put it best, “You have to come to Inman with a business plan, and grasp on to only those ideas that can help you with that plan.” In case you don’t know … Read More »
