Realtor REach

In a recent article posted by Tom Royce about 2013 Real Estate Predictions titled “NAR Invests in 6 Startups Through REach Accelerator Program

He said:    “I bet you did not know that the National Association of Realtors (NAR) runs an accelerator program for new startups through their Second Century Ventures fund, did you? I didn’t until this week, but it is a concept worth exploring.”

My Response:    Tom I did not know that the National Association of Realtors®  (NAR) runs any program for new startups through ventures funds.  But isn’t NAR representing us Realtors®.  Shouldn’t this concept be more like a steering committee if it is worth exploring different real estate APP and channels to facilitate real estate business.

He said:    These companies are focused on forward thinking customer engagement tools that will help Realtors, and that is a great thing. A commitment from the NAR to their membership to drive improved client services and communication will be beneficial for all in the industry.

My Response:    The program should be called REach For My Wallet.

Here is the breakdown he gave of NAR’s REach Accelerators Class of 2013 (BombBomb-Lumentus-Planwise-Reach150-Updater-Workface)”

We pay Realtor® dues so we do have a voice.
>My opinion for now is this:>

>Sounds like Google’s ®  job>     BombBomb – Provides a complete e-mail and video marketing platform for developing, sending and tracking results of traditional and video e-mail campaigns from any device.

>My opinions for now are this: “NAR lets not make the same mistake and sell our the venture ideas to REALTOR.COM!”

>Isn’t this our job> Lumentus – Gives companies a measurable edge in identifying, understanding and engaging social media communities keeping social media communications on brand and on mission.

>Ok this could be worth exploring for your job>    Planwise – Offers a financial planning service that enables individuals to plan for major life events by simply and visually testing real-life scenarios.

>Sounds like RELO’s ®  job>     Reach150 – Provides a turnkey referral platform for service professionals to quickly build a positive reputation online.

>Sounds like the internet’s job lots not be so lazy>    Updater – Provides a free service for anyone who is moving to easily forward mail, update accounts, transfer utilities, and sign up for home services in a single location.

>Sounds like Google’s ®  job>    Workface – Offers a unique, quick-to-deploy live chat (text, audio, video) software platform for real time one-on-one conversations at a customer’s moment of interest.

Again a shout out to my “National Association of Realtors ® in Chicago, “folks lets not make the same mistake and sell our rights and ideas to any private company like www.REALTOR.COM! or www.realestate.com or Move.com.

The program should be called REach For My Wallet.
