Realty ONE Group’s exceptional agents are among the biggest supporters
of the company’s announcement as 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
“Our top producers immediately recognized its potential,” said Kuba
Jewgieniew, CEO and Founder of Realty ONE Group Inc., sharing some of
the comments he’s heard from three of the company’s major markets:
“Curb Call will have a huge impact on our industry. It's an exciting
technology and I know any agent hoping for more buyer deals will want
it. I'm lucky to be with a brokerage that has done their due diligence
in securing tools like Curb Call for their agents ahead of competitors.”
Shaw, Realty ONE Group Paradise Valley, AZ. 350 closed transactions in
2013 and recently named on REAL Trends “The Thousand” list.
“Curb Call is an innovative, cutting-edge technology system that
provides a positive experience for the Realtor and buyer. It is not easy
to find a user-friendly software that creates win/win results -
especially with today's on-demand consumer marketing - but Curb Call
provides all of this and more. When a buyer is ready to tour a home,
this app aligns them with a qualified agent in minutes. It is brilliant
and will truly redefine the consumer experience when looking to purchase
Jim Brooks, Realty ONE Group Green Valley, NV. 180
closed transactions in 2013.
“As a Realty ONE Group agent I am consistently impressed with the level
of tools and services they provide their professionals. This is one more
thing that's going to positively impact my business and ability to close
more deals. It's reassuring to know that I've aligned with a brokerage
that is on the cutting edge of technology and not only understands real
estate but is creating the future of real estate.”
Realty ONE Group Mission Viejo, CA. Former “Real Housewives of Orange
“Simple, fast and effective, Curb Call is the next big thing to hit the
real estate market, and if agents are smart, they will jump on this new
technology,” Jewgieniew said. “We all know the landscape of real estate
is constantly changing, and in order to stay ahead, we need to be on
call with clients. Curb Call allows agents to be exactly that - on call.
This is going to connect home buyers and agents like nothing before.”
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.
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.
"Partnering with a progressive company like Realty ONE Group gave us
access to top agents in key markets,” said Seth Siegler, CEO of Curb
Call Technologies, Inc. “We knew their most successful agents would
immediately see the benefits of connecting with buyers in the late
stages of their search, allowing them to close more deals.”

In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures.
Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer.
Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
