Charleston-Trident Multiple Listing Service Offering Sold Listings!

REW Nick posted this 1,883 Views

I've been looking for a reason to dust off the old REW Blog for a while now, and it looks like NAR has given me one! As some of you may or may not know, there was a recent NAR ruling in regards to co-mingling IDX listings and the display of Sold Data (among other things). Information on these changes, as well as a few others, NAR has released a summary of the 2015 changes. As we get notifications of MLS boards amending their rules to be in line with the new NAR ruling, I will announce the...

Benchmarking Can Take You From Good To Great

Michael Audet posted this 1,337 Views

If you haven't read the book, "From Good To Great" by Jim Collins, I highly recommend it.  The sub-title is "Why some companies make the leap and other don't". The book is all about benchmarking.  Simply put, benchmarking is all about understanding where you are today, objectively, so you have a way to measure progress again the benchmark to see if you are gaining ground or losing ground.   We have all heard how people with goals are so much more successful than people witho...

Now that things have finally started to slow down a bit after our record shattering $40,000,000 valuation on CBC's Dragon's Den this past week, it's time for me to get back to work. I posted our 12 days of Christmas promotion on my blog over here: and I've been getting a LOT of email inquiries regarding "how do I reach my goals" "what should I buy", "how much time do I need to get" "what can I expect as results" and many more. I'm doing my best to keep up but as they are one off's and so m...

Timing and Why I Joined Real Estate Webmasters

Michael Audet posted this 1,082 Views

I joined REW five months ago and I still get asked quite frequently why I left the WAV Group and joined Real Estate Webmasters.  If I had to simplify my decision down to a word, it would have to be “timing”.   Timing is the critical element for so many things we do, like when you buy a stock, when you sell, when you move, when you introduce a new product,, etc.  For me, when the opportunity arose at Real Estate Webmasters and I looked at the industry and REW and th...

Update: The sales team leads say our sale on hours is too complicated (and because it's their nature to want to sell, they are pushing for even better deals for customers).  How they got me to say yes to this, I have NO IDEA - but here you go!  Design time: It turns out that because of our recent awesomeness in hiring, we have ZERO queue in design - so until further notice, I am going to authorize 20% off ALL design hours.  Programming: We're down to 2 week queue SO AWESOM...

I am sitting in our restaurant REWsters today, finally able to take moment to reflect on the events following two days of intense and very positive media attention we have received since landing the largest deal in Reality television history this past thursday on CBC's Dragon's Den.  All I can say is I am absolutely BLOWN AWAY! All the positive comments, tweets, facebook messages, shares, interviews (TV / RADIO / Newspaper) I mean it's just crazy! Of course as fans of the show we knew...

NAR Policy Changes Great News For the Industry

Michael Audet posted this 1,002 Views

During the recent NAR Conference in New Orleans, the NAR policy committee passed a number of significant changes, that impact all of us that work in the world of real estate data.  It's amazing to me how long it has taken to get some of these changes made but our industry, unfortunately, moves slow  It is that slowness that has made the real estate business an easy target for the big portals.   But, the changes approved by the NAR Board are important and a welcom...
