Derek Overbey’s dailies from the REALTORS® Conference & Expo 2007Yes, I’m here at No Limits in Las Vegas, with thousands of REALTORS®. There’s 744 exhibitors at this conference, and they are telling us more than 2,000 attendees have pre-registered from 60 countries. And, that number will grow as people show up and register onsite. It’s pretty hectic, and as crazy as you’d expect it to be with that many REALTORS® in one place.
I’ll be joining a panel this morning for a seminar called "Marketing 2.0," where we’ll talk about how technology is transforming real estate marketing. I’ll bring notes from the discussion tomorrow.
Gino and Bob are given the RISMedia National Homeownership Award
Last night, we went to the 12th Annual RISMedia Power Broker reception, which is attended by all the big, national brokerages. Gino and Bob were completely taken by surprise and given the National Homeownership Award. Sponsored by Bank of America, the award is given in recognition of "outstanding achievements among residential real estate’s most influential and charismatic leaders."
Gino didn’t have a speech ready (I think that made him a bit nervous). But he got up and did great job, talking about the Intero Values and what that means to our business.
Zillow.com Announces Free Listings Feed
The other big news here is that Zillow.com has announced they’re going to allow brokerages to feed their listings for free to the Zillow web site. Intero is currently one of the only brokerages in the Bay Area right now who is working with them. Here’s a brief from their press release.
