As such, I thought I’d share CMX’s 7P’s of Community: It’s a simple framework for building belonging. If you want to understand this topic more thoroughly, I highly highly recommend reading the entire article. https://hscmanagement.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/7Ps-Blog-Image-v9-1.jpg

Slicing Pie in the Quest for New Real Estate Category Kings / A Few Questions about Buyer Data in NYC – Geek Estate Mastermind 47

Slicing Pie in the Quest for New Real Estate Category Kings / A Few Questions about Buyer Data in NYC – Geek Estate Mastermind 47

Last week, I investigated category kings further. On the residential side of real estate, the unwavering category king is Zillow Group. In addition to their flagship brand, they own Trulia, StreetEasy, and even power Yahoo! Real Estate. Realtor.com is a distant second, with no legitimate player anywhere in sight beyond that. The portal landscape seemingly

Request: Prove that AI in Real Estate Isn’t a Bunch of Bullsh*t

Request: Prove that AI in Real Estate Isn’t a Bunch of Bullsh*t

My strong suspicion is the majority of “real estate AI” is…. well, a bunch of PR and marketing muscle, with little to no data/machine learning/tech substance backing it up. In other words, it’s bullsh*t. Chat bots with basic algorithms are not AI. “Mechanical Turking”, which involves humans doing all of the work, is not AI. I know

Why I’m Bearish on Redfin (Part I)

Why I’m Bearish on Redfin (Part I)

Disclaimer: I have worked with many Redfin agents, many of whom are great at what they do, and who are a joy to work with. This is not a commentary on Redfin’s agents’ performance. This is an observation of the overall consumer experience that Redfin provides, which typically involves multiple agents and showing assistants. I’m

Buying Leads on Layaway / How Long Will Real Estate Companies Keep Going? – Geek Estate Mastermind Newsletter #45

Buying Leads on Layaway / How Long Will Real Estate Companies Keep Going? – Geek Estate Mastermind Newsletter #45

Last week, Greg dove into the topic of Zillow and referrals with his piece called Buying Leads on Layover. Just a week after Move announced the acquisition of Opcity, Zillow announced a new additional Premier Broker pricing product based on a “performance advertising expense” or, more plainly, a referral fee due when the transaction closes instead of

What is Geek Estate Mastermind, and What is Geek Estate Blog?

What is Geek Estate Mastermind, and What is Geek Estate Blog?

Since there is content posted both on the public Geek Estate Blog (founded in 2007) and within the private Mastermind community, I wanted to take a minute to explain what the difference between the two are. I want to be fully transparent with goals for each. Geek Estate Mastermind’s purpose is two fold: Curate the world’s
