As most of our Canadian customers know, REW (Real Estate Webmasters) is a Canadian owned company that while we are global in our customer base, the vast majority of our customers and revenue is derived in the US.

As such, REW also charges/normalizes our fees in US dollars.

For Canadian customers with Canadian dollar accounts, what this has historically meant is that on a quarterly basis, we adjust our exchange rates and convert the USD to the Canadian dollar to establish a CAD pricing equivalent.

The trigger for such changes is a change +/- $.05 USD to Canadian currency.

The quarter-end is coming up, and we are due for a rate adjustment calculation. Of course, every single person on the planet has been paying attention to the news (especially

 2020 marks Real Estate Webmasters (REW) 16th year in business. We have seen an incredible amount of growth and change in this time within the technology landscape, especially as it pertains to websites, CRM and lead generation. 

I have spent the last weeks of 2019 reviewing our business and reflecting on our performance but also on some really great feedback we have received from our customers, many of whom are the top performers in their markets or even in their entire countries. 

We have also been speaking with our sales teams and our leads (even those that don’t close) to determine how we can be an even better REW in 2020. The feedback has been great, and I truly appreciate everyone who has taken the time to provide us with insights as to how we

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

 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.

There are also some really exciting companies that are growing, have a great customer base, have not over leveraged debt, are at or near profitability and have a unique product set that could really benefit REW and our customers. I’m extra excited about the potential to have some of these companies and their people join REW. We’re being super picky about where we put our resources (time and investment funds) but I think in 2020 you’ll see some great new additions to the REW

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

REW Summit—Real Estate Webmasters' annual conference—is just around the corner!

Taking place at the ARIA Hotel in Las Vegas from July 24th to July 25th, this year's Summit is bound to be the most epic edition ever.

Here are 7 reasons why you absolutely shouldn't miss REW Summit:

1. It's taking place at Inman Connect Las Vegas

Inman Connect is one of the premier events in real estate. And for the first time ever, Inman Connect is going to Vegas.

We were so excited about the news that we signed on to be the event's first-ever title sponsor.

What does that mean for you? You can now access both events with one combination ticket.

At Inman Connect, you'll have access to over 250 incredible speakers in the general session, additional access

I've just returned from Inman Disconnect and it was an absolutely amazing gathering of real estate's most brilliant and engaged minds. Our group was dynamic, passionate and driven to try to figure out what the future of our industry might look like (in the next 5 years). 

One of the themes that was most prevalent in our discussions was change. Phrases like "we must adapt to new challenges," and "adjust our models to accommodate new competition," or "meet new expectations of our customers." Our customers in this case are agents, teams and brokers whether you are on the franchise side like RE/MAX or on the vendor side like Real Estate Webmasters Inc. 

We talked a lot about listening to our customers (our agents) and responding to those things that

If you had any doubt before, it should be gone now: The Platform Wars Are Here 

Last week Gary Keller announced that KW Command was ready for prime time and that Keller Williams had a clear advantage over the competition when it came to “end-to-end” platforms provided by franchise to brokers & agents. I was given a tour of the platform and it is clearly not ready for prime time yet. I was also not a big fan of the hyperbole and the way Gary Keller oversells his platform. Granted it’s coming along, and it is better than what they have now, but it certainly isn’t the best of breed (and it’s not done).

You can read my thoughts on Gary Keller and Command here

RE/MAX has announced that they are looking to release their Booj acquired platform in Q2
