Open Graph: Improving Social Media Conversions

by Ben Kubic on 6:22 am November 24, 2015

When you post something on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest, do you close your eyes and hope that it looks the way you want it to? If so, you should be using Open Graph, the social media protocol designed by Facebook back in 2010. Open Graph is one of those technologies that sounds complicated (probably because it was designed by engineers) but is actually really simple to implement and has a profound impact on the spread of your content. At it’s core, Open Graph is a few … Read More »

DotLoop Takes Real Estate Transactions to a New Domain

by Mark Miles on 2:06 pm March 8, 2013

It’s possible you’ve never heard the word “revolutionomics,” but if you’re a real estate professional, you might look into it. The word has become a favorite in discussions involving 27-year-old CEO Austin Allison and his thriving, real estate-focused startup, DotLoop.com, which focuses on simplifying the paper-heavy transactions characteristic of negotiation and closing processes. Let’s start with the obvious question: “How does it work?” Once an agent creates their account, they open a communications “loop” that is displayed dashboard style, with active clients, client activity and … Read More »

How to Get Started in Real Estate

by Seth Price on 3:41 am February 24, 2012

There are lot’s of things that I wish I knew before starting in real estate. What they don’t tell you about real estate is a presentation that came from hundreds of conversations that I have had with agents and brokers across the nation. Working in real estate is a multifaceted career. One part industry expert, one part marketer, one part sales person, one part negotiator, one part tech support and lots of hard work. The bad news is: there is no silver bullet. The good … Read More »

Building Brand with Social Media at the Brokerage Level

Hawaii Life Facebook Insights

Real Estate Social “Notworking?” It was getting close to Inman Connect NY, and I could feel the urgency in a text message from Matt Beall, “did you get my email regarding the social media case study for Inman?” I’m sure somewhere—in the ether that is my inbox—sat an email from Mr. Beall. Knee deep in a Hawaii Life interface redesign, however, my Gmail account was left unmanaged and overflowing its 200G limit. Since integrating social media into our real estate search in September 2011, I hadn’t really thought … Read More »

What real estate CRM's can learn from Highrise

by Jeremy Linder on 2:50 pm December 19, 2011

google search for real estate crm

It seems there are as many real estate crm providers out there as agents in the business. A quick google search for the phrase real estate crm returned over 30,000,000 results! With so many companies competing for the same customers you would think several players would emerge with innovative products specifically tailored to the needs of real estate agents that are fairly tech savvy. In my opinion this hasn’t happened [yet]. I should clarify what I mean: I’m talking about a crm system designed for … Read More »

Wild idea for Realtors: Allocate $10,000 to build a Premium Online Asset (doesn't have to be real estate)

by Joe Salcedo on 1:55 pm May 24, 2011

Successful Realtors / Brokers tend to lean towards building an offline cash flow portfolio — rental homes, residential flipping or even dabble in commercial real estate. Wild idea: how about allocating two closings worth of cash for an online asset? Real estate investing will always be my first love. I grew up watching my father buying, renovating, leasing and flipping 25-20 homes; I’ve owned a couple of my own the past 5 years. But lately I’ve diversified to online assets. I couldn’t resist the 15-20% … Read More »
