Real Estate Webmasters visit to CIR Realty
In preparation for my visit this week to Calgary, Alberta to present REW's (Real Estate Webmasters) website technologies and platform, I wanted to make a post for Lindsey Smith to reference explaining in more detail the purpose of my visit and to allow those attending (or those who can't) to ask any pre-visit questions.
Here are some basics:
Q: Who is Real Estate Webmasters?
A: Real Estate Webmasters is one of the largest "custom" real estate website vendors in the world. We are a Canadian company, based out of British Columbia.
Q: REW and CIR?
A: Real Estate Webmasters and CIR Realty have been working together for many years in a preferred vendor relationship to offer the very high end technology to CIR agents at a much lower cost than retail due to the relationship developed between our two firms, and the fantastic support we have received from Lindsey and the folks at CIR.
Q: What is new? What has changed?
A: In the past version of our agreement, agents were limited to only a few exclusive selections of template designs and one core platform to access special pricing. This new agreement will offer agents access to ALL REW Templates and provide a significant discount on any add-ons and residual hosting cost. More importantly, the platform will now join the REW Core fold and have the latest and greatest tools and features such as the REW 4.1 lead management system, mobile IDX technologies and much, much more.
Q: Who is coming? What are you presenting?
A: I (Morgan Carey) will be coming personally to present at CIR. I am the CEO and director of new technologies at REW. My good friend Justin Havre has been gracious enough to allow me to show off some of the work and results we have acheived through that work, and in addition I will be going over the product options, providing a tour of the new backend and answering any questions CIR agents may have. I anticipate many agents will want to know how they can generate more leads from their websites via search engines, pay per click and social media and even more hopefully will want to know how they can use a system such as ours to cultivate these leads into deals once they have been captured. It will be a lot of fun.
Q: How much?
A: Retail for a website and integrated IDX such as this is $3000 USD setup, and $80 per month. Due to CIR's participation in the REW Exclusive Program, CIR agents attending will receive a 100% discount on template and IDX setup (that's right, you pay zero dollars for setup) and instead of the $80 in monthly combined IDX / hosting / website fees - you pay only $50 per month. As an additional bonus any "add on" modules CIR agents wish to access are 50% off, and if SAAS fees are paid yearly (instead of the $50 per month, which is $600 per year) your yearly cost is discounted an additional $100 so you pay only $500 per year.
Q: How can I order?
A: I will have order forms with me at the presentation on Friday including credit card authorization forms. Agents ordering directly at the presentation will be entered into a draw to win their hosting / SAAS fees free for 1 year + $1000 in additional add on modules at no extra cost. So please make it to the presenation if you can. If you can't - Lindsey will have a flyer to distribute that has instructions on how to access our sales dept, or you can always email billing@ realestatewebmasters.com and tell them you are an agent looking to access pricing for the REW Exclusive program through CIR.
Q: I have other questions, where do I get
A: Come to the presentation on Friday of course! However prior to Friday you can post directly below in the comments section, I will approve your questions and then provide the answers inline.
I look forward to meeting you all, and again thank you to Lindsey Smith and especially Justin Havre for helping to put this together for us.
