This week, at least through Wednesday, I’m in New York for one of the big real estate conferences – especially in the technology field. If anyone is in New York and would like to get together, shoot me an email.
Honestly, I’m not a big New York City fan. I think it might come from growing up out in the African bush or in smaller cities. What is neat about it though is that it has a ton of stuff going on all the time. It truly is 24/7/365.
What’s really been neat is coming across two people that are also from Africa that are in the same industry. Kevin Boer also grew up as a missionary’s kid in Africa – in Nigeria. Kevin informed me of an old school-mate of his that was here named Oliver Muoto, co-founder of vFlyer, who also grew up in Nigeria.
Both of these guys are top notch technology advocates. Kevin is a real estate agent and a thought-leader in the use of technology in the US real estate market and blogs at 3 Oceans Real Estate. Oliver is a co-founder of one of the most useful new applications to hit the market in the last 6 months. Blogging brings you into contact with others who you would likely never meet.
Oh, by the way, it was great to beat our competition to the punch with a new feature. Eppraisal.com Sponsorships launched today allowing any real estate professional to exclusively sponsor a zip code on eppraisal.com.
