    Real Estate and Skunk Works Departments

    by Seth Siegler on April 18, 2017

    I’ve been working within the fast-paced, risk-loving, fail-fast worlds of four different real estate industry startups for the the last 10+ years. I founded them all but three were bootstrapped and one was VC-backed. And while two of them went nowhere and two others resulted in exits, in all four, there existed common themes and paradigms that allowed us to get a huge amount of work done with a tiny team and budget.

What if IDX Becomes Irrelevant?

Posted on by Drew Meyers

Buyers want to know: What’s for sale? What’s the house worth? How’s the market? IDX has been the central focus of an agent/broker online marketing strategy for a long, long time. It answers the “whats for sale?” question every buyer wants to know. The latest Listing Bits podcast, and mention of Placester raising another $50M got me thinking about the topic of IDX. I’ve long thought there is an argument to be made that IDX is not a worthwhile investment for an agent/broker (read this post from 2013). Many … Read More »

“Key for Key”

Posted on by Drew Meyers

I’m incredibly pleased that Concierge Auctions and Giveback Homes decided to work together on the “Key for Key” campaign. …Key for Key™, guarantees that a new home will be built for a family in need for every property that we sell this year. Our initial commitment will equate to over 100 homes through the balance of this year. Many of these projects will be concentrated in Nicaragua, where the need for safe housing is critical.
