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 »

Horizon’s Android Version is Now Available

by Drew Meyers on 11:22 am April 26, 2016

I’ve alluded to the fact we’ve been working on and testing an Android version of Horizon. Today, I’m excited to be able to announce we’ve released a public Android beta on Product Hunt — with full support for posting and filtering to find sublets. Would love your support with a download, and a comment. Especially if you use an Android device, please head over now…

Horizon Now Supports Advertising Sublets

by Drew Meyers on 1:48 pm March 22, 2016

We recently released a big update to Horizon’s iOS offering that allows hosts (aka owners) to post sublet opportunities. For those looking to find a tenant for a sublet, here’s the current workflow: Post on Facebook….wait. Post on Twitter…wait. Post in private/secret Facebook groups you belong to…wait. Post on Facebook again…wait. Get fed up and post on Craigslist, knowing you’re going to have to deal with inquires from random strangers & interview them (aka “speed date”). Yes, there is a better way. We view Horizon as … Read More »

Horizon Android Testers Needed

by Drew Meyers on 11:06 am February 25, 2016

I alluded to the fact that we’ve been working on an Android version of Horizon. We’re now starting to put our first alpha testers onto the app, and we could use more early / willing testers… Be the First to Try  

Latest Horizon Update

by Drew Meyers on 4:28 pm February 17, 2016

I get asked fairly often by readers I interact with privately how Horizon is going, so thought I’d share the most recent update: The Age Old Hospitality Exchange Conundrum – Host Incentives. ** If you have an Android device, and want to be one of the first people to try it, please sign up HERE.
