Real estate touches every part of our lives -- our homes, workplaces, where we shop, and even where we try to get away.

Three things real estate professionals don’t do anymore: shift through Sunday morning classifieds for new properties, rely on direct mail advertising, or sending faxes to potential clients.

I really think they are going to be a game changer in so many ways.
I have been consistently having more conversations with folks in real estate tech from outside the U.S. Literally on a weekly basis I get an email, social connection or call from another tech entrepreneur from in Europe and Asia.
