Realty ONE Group will be the exclusive provider of Curb Call, a new “showing-on-demand” app, in four major markets. The innovative app will be FREE to all Realty ONE Group agents.
Curb Call is a new mobile app that allows real estate agents to monetize small windows of free time throughout their day by picking up on-demand showing requests from buyers who are at a listing and want an immediate tour.
Curb Call is officially launching with Realty ONE Group as its exclusive partner in San Diego, Orange County, Las Vegas metro area, and Phoenix metro area, with more locations to be announced in the coming weeks.
“We are incredibly excited to partner with industry leader Realty ONE Group for our global launch,” said Seth Siegler, CEO of Curb Call Technologies, Inc. “This is a progressive company with smart, forward-thinking agents who are going to make the most of this type of technology. We know it will be an amazing tool for both buyers and agents, and there’s nothing else like it.”
How Curb Call works: Available agents open Curb Call and set themselves to "available for showings.” A buyer not already attached to an agent can view available agents in the area where their listing of interest is located. The agent who receives a "buyer alert" can view the buyer's name, profile and location, then accept or decline the showing request. If accepted, the agent gets the buyer’s complete contact information and sets up the showing.
“This is a win for our agents – Realty ONE Group is known for our commitment to building their business by providing qualified, quality leads. We offer the most support in the industry, and give them the most advanced marketing tools available,” said Kuba Jewgieniew, CEO and Founder of Realty ONE Group Inc. “And likewise, buyers will benefit from the expertise of our experienced agents. We are proud to be the exclusive provider of this cutting-edge app, as part of the full suite of technology and marketing support we offer our team.”
"The beauty of a Curb Call lead is that it's a buyer in the late stages of his or her search. This person has already viewed this listing online and likes what they’ve seen – from the home itself to the surrounding neighborhood,” Siegler said. “We're an ‘on-demand society’ and our app can help cement those relationships with experienced agents who can take buyers to the next level.”
Realty ONE Group will demonstrate this exclusive app live at their ONE Talk in Carlsbad, Calif., on Thursday, May 22, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Dove Library (1775 Dove Ln, Carlsbad).
The ONE Talk is FREE and everyone is welcome. Jan O'Brien, VP of Business Coaching and Tina King, Regional Manager of San Diego will lead the empowering breakthrough session, which will cover “how to develop the mindset of a listing master” and will also feature a top-producing agent panel. Additional information about the event and registration available here.

Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned.

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
