My Favorite Topic – Trust

by Drew Meyers on 9:30 am April 5, 2017

Trust is the topic I think about more than any other. It’s the entire basis of Horizon. If we don’t solve trust in the context of home sharing and hospitality exchange, we fail. Seth Godin wrote on the topic recently, saying: The thing is, almost no one decides the answer to the trustworthy question based on the fine print, your policies, your positions on critical issues of national importance. We decide long, long before that. People watch what you do. They watch with the sound … Read More »

Connecting Adventurers, Travelers And Homebuyers Through A Mobile App?

by Julie Ziemelis on 3:09 pm February 20, 2017

I recently attended a luxury real estate conference on Oahu and enjoyed a presentation by Michela O’Connor Abrams, President and CEO of Dwell who discussed lifestyle home ownership trends. She mentioned that many of the people purchasing second homes were people in their 40’s and 50’s making over $200k a year. This group did not want the McMansions of yesteryear, saw the value of smaller homes and wanted a more nimble lifestyle. After her talk, I spoke to some of the luxury Realtors in the room and asked them … Read More »

A 2nd Viewpoint on Real Estate Innovation in 2017

by Drew Meyers on 12:55 pm December 22, 2016

What am I thinking about as we go into 2017? What innovation are we going to see in the new year? I figured I’d write my own predications to follow Walter’s. Here we go… AI — I agree with Walter that AI is going to continue to be a point of innovation in 2017 (and beyond). I believe there is an opportunity to use AI to “predict” homes buyers would be interested in — without them even asking. That said, I hesitate to include AI … Read More »

Comment Marketing with Local Advice

by Drew Meyers on 9:00 am August 23, 2016

Great agents have deep, deep local expertise — and an incentive to share it. Hence why I’ve long thought there is a play to be made around showcasing local experts. Zillow Advice and Trulia Voices and Localism (check this press release from 2008) used to be the rage when it came to comment marketing with local advice. I don’t hear much about local advice comment marketing much anymore, though I’m sure there are some people who still have success leaving local advice breadcrumbs across the internet … Read More »

The (Almost) Eulogy of Oh Hey World

by Drew Meyers on 8:00 pm July 10, 2016

[Editor’s note: I originally posted this on the Oh Hey World blog] Over the past few years, I’ve worked on two travel apps – Oh Hey World (OHW) and, more recently, Horizon. This post pertains to the earlier product, OHW. I shared a lot of learnings in my 12 months of learnings on Pando in late 2013. That post was written while still trying to figure out a viable strategy around “community” pages — and before ever deciding take another shot at making community accessible everywhere, for everyone with … Read More »

Know Someone Who Needs a Roommate, or Seeking to Sublet their Place for the Summer?

by Drew Meyers on 9:22 pm June 1, 2016

I mentioned in March Horizon now supports sublet opportunities. This morning, we shipped an incredibly important update to Horizon’s iOS — the ability to actually find those sublets. You can now sort your city results by accommodation type (which includes a sublet filter). Efficiently finding hosts with the right type of accommodations has been our app’s biggest weakness since we launched. Would love your thoughts on the intuitiveness of the filters. If you search in Seattle you should find one or two sublets. Our next big challenge is getting some … Read More »
