    by Drew Meyers on August 11, 2017

    As mentioned, I’ve spent the last week in San Francisco at Hacker Connect & Inman Connect. It’s been a whirlwind of a week, and haven’t really been on a computer all week (which I’ve enjoyed). Before the weekend, I wanted to highlight a few of the companies I found compelling: CompCurve – competitive intelligence on agents and brokers sales productivity to compare yourself to the competition (and recruit agents who are doing well).

Lessons from Inman “Hack the App”

Posted on by Ed Tee

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.

Homelight Gets Another $40 Million in Funding
