"The largest custom real estate platform build in modern history."

When you read the statement that kicks off the latest cover story of Real Estate Magazine by RISMedia, it's easy to understand why we are so excited about the upcoming launch of CENTURY 21 Canada's new national technology platform.

To say it's highly anticipated would be a massive understatement.

An incredible 30,000 development hours at Real Estate Webmasters went into building the platform over the past two years.

The result is a sleek platform design with intuitive features, both on the customer-facing frontend and the agent-facing backend. The frontend features an incredible property search experience and beautiful agent subdomains for each of CENTURY 21 Canada's thousands

So this month I decided to join our sales manager in a really fun sales contest against our entire sales team. You can read about the contest at this facebook post (please feel free to share).

As I've started to discuss projects (especially large custom projects or upgrades) the subject of the "queue" comes up. IE what is the wait time to get a project started / completed?

People are often surprised by the answer (and that is there is a pretty long waiting list) and someone today asked me to explain why. 

Because part of my contest is social media; in the spirit of transparency and because I feel I will be able to reach the most people by putting in extra effort in more robust content that I can then share for the benefit of all, I've decided to write a

REW's newest campus buildingThat's right, today is Real Estate Webmasters' fourteenth birthday! 

It has been yet another amazing year here at REW and, as I sit here on a plane bound for the T3 Summit, I have time to reflect on just how far we have come. More importantly, I get to feel the excitement of what I know is yet to come in our future!

Here are some of the highlights:

In the past year:

  • Launched the industry's first 360 photo / video-enabled virtual reality website
  • Launched REW Leads iOS and Android full platform

REW launched our new REW CRM last year and we were excited to bring a real estate CRM to market that makes lead management faster and easier.

Since then, we've received feedback and suggestions from our clients on ways to make REW CRM even better. We took those ideas, combined them with some of our own, and created a new update to REW CRM. Without further ado, we are delighted to share some of the new features and improvements you can now find in REW CRM:

Jason and KyleReal Estate Webmasters has recently introduced two Customer Success Managers, a new role within our team. The Customer Success Manager (CSM) position was created to help guide new clients through the onboarding process, and make their transition into REW as seamless as possible. The CSMs will be working with all new clients for approximately 100 days.

We caught up with our two CSMs, Jason and Kyle, to talk a bit about the new role and how it will help our clients succeed.

What is the role of a Customer Success Manager?

Kyle: I see the role as welcoming and showing new clients to Real Estate Webmasters all aspects of their site. We introduce the backend customer relationship manager and the front end, and show them how to change things on their

I'm often asked what will be included in an REW SEO project by smart Realtors who are looking to enhance their digital marketing strategy. The truth is that every single project at REW is a bit different, because we look at your company, competition, and opportunity within your market, and then develop a strategy accordingly.

Your designated SEO expert will be able to create an individualized strategy for your site and share it with you fairly early into your project. In the meantime, let's take a look at what we plan to accomplish for every new SEO project that comes across our desks.

real estate buyersAs a website company, our absolute favourite way to get real estate buyer leads is online. Technology has already taken over the world, and its use is still growing rapidly, which makes this one of the best areas of opportunity for lead generation.

In this blog, I'll tell you how to use the world wide web to get more real estate buyer leads.

Step 1: Create an engaging foundation

When we're planning to target buyers, we first need to ask ourselves an important question:

"What are buyers looking for?"

Remember that people go online to answer a question or find information, and real estate buyers are no different. Every online search starts with a question that needs an answer.

Most buyers are interested in viewing real estate listings,

In one week, we will be launching the world's first website that offers a virtual reality feature set for both main page presentation and listings details pages. Truly, this is our biggest innovation in website design at REW ever and I am so excited! 

My vision is this: You roll up on a listing presentation a few minutes early with a 360 / VR camera (relatively inexpensive under $1,000 for a good one)—before going in, you put down a tripod in a nice location, and you take a 360 degree photo or video. 

You then upload the photo to your site using the brand new, fully responsive REW CRM along with other property details and hit save. Instantly, you have the listing added to your site and available to view even before you have landed it.
