It's that time of year again! It's time for REW.com's12 Days Of Christmas promotion. 

This year's promotion has some of the best deals ever offered at Real Estate Webmasters and it's just in time for the release of our brand new #Renaissance website platform & CRM.

Renaissance Website

We've been running Renaissance now in beta for quite some time testing it for speed (WPO), Accessibility (ADA), optimizing it for SEO and conversion. 

The site is performing very well and by the January release date it will be the world's fastest, most accessible, and best SEO'd real estate website period! 

To celebrate this monumental product launch and to help our customers ensure they are in the best position possible with their existing platforms or to help them upgrade to

This year will go down in history as one of the strangest and most chaotic years ever. A global pandemic, a US presidential election, murder bees! I mean seriously, you can't write this stuff. There were just so many unexpected twists and turns, and so much uncertainty. 

I can remember back in March, we were blogging about economic impact, potential major negative shifts in the real estate space, and even offering our customers deferred payments on their SAAS bills to help them make it through the year. At that time we were all cautious (as we should have been) because we seriously didn't know what was going to happen this year.  

The Real Estate Market Blew Up! 

What most of us didn't see coming was that instead of crashing, the real estate

Recently some of our clients in Florida have reported receiving letters from lawyers threatening legal action against them due to fair housing violations. These letters generally are claiming that the client’s real estate website is not accessible according to ADA and that constitutes discrimination under the fair housing act. 

This is very similar to what we saw a few years ago when lawyers were going after ADA specifically (not related to fair housing) but this addition of “Fair Housing” is a new twist and one we feel all customers should take seriously.  

Why it really sucks

When a law firm (or someone pretending to be a law firm) sends you a threatening letter it can be very stressful. Generally, these actions not only demand compensation

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
