Real Estate Tech and You

If you don't have an SSL certificate on your website, you need to change that. Once a nice-to-have, SSL certificates are now as necessary as having a URL. You can not, should not, and will not have a successful website without one. Althought Google led the way, other browsers are following suit: your site will be penalized severely without the proper security settings in place. Let's go through some of the most commonly asked questions about SSL certificates: Do I Need an SSL Certificate for my website? Yes. Absolutely. Oui. Sì. Shì. Ja. Ae. Yebo. Hai. An SSL certificate is way to tell both your website visitors and search engines that your site is safe, and secure. Without one, Google (and other search engines) will mark your site as unsafe, and will…

I’ve been in the prop tech space for 16 years. In this time, I’ve had the great pleasure of meeting some of the most creative, intelligent, inspiring entrepreneurs in the world. We have hustled shows together, we have learned together and we have grown together. In these 16 years I have been truly blessed to also have made some great friends. As we head into 2020 I find myself thinking: Wow it’s a new decade! Can you believe it? For me it’s a special time. Personally, I have turned 40, my youngest is now a teenager, my oldest is 24. I have decided to focus on my health & personal wellness, my relationships & family (especially my marriage to my amazing wife) and I’ve found myself focused far more on what I can do to feel like I’ve done right by this…

Not only is it the holiday season, it's also a time to reflect on successes of the past year and a time to look forward to the year ahead.

IDX apps are a powerful tool for your business. They can help engage potential and existing clients, improve brand loyalty, and get people addicted to your services. But to get the most benefit, you need to know when to promote your app and how to use it within your existing workflow. Timing is everything. Typical journey of buyers & sellers First, let's talk real quick about the basic digital journey that almost every buyer and seller takes: 1. Search online When someone decides to buy or sell a house, they tend to start in one of two places: referrals or web searches. In either scenario, the person is trying to find more information about the real estate process. People who don't want to start with an agent will search terms like "Vancouver real…

 Ever since my post iOi article I have received a lot of interest from companies and founders asking me to give feedback on, evaluate or acquire their businesses. Some really awesome people with great vision and a love for prop tech just the kind of people I love spending time with.

So it’s the end of 2019 and we're coming into the beginning of 2020. I’m headed over to one of my favourite conferences, the One C21 conference for Century 21 Canada. Before I head out, I touch base with our customers. I send out a blast email letting them know about a new CRM, a new promo etc (you know doing my sales & marketing thing) and for those that write back I also ask them a very important question. “How has your experience with REW been so far?” I ask because I genuinely want to know. I want to make sure we’re as good as we can be, but also since I know I’m headed to a conference where we have hundreds of customers, I need to be prepared to work on any relationships that need love. "Run towards any problems” that is what Tim from my team…
