We made a mistake letting third party middlemen (like Zillow/Redfin) use our listings to take away our buyers. Lose buyers and you risk losing sellers. This website will bring back our buyers and help us keep our sellers.

Bring back our buyers, keep our sellers... 

Hi, it's Greg

I started the Stop Zillow movement to see if together we could persuade Zillow to: 

1. STOP displaying inaccurate valuations next to asking prices (horrible for sellers). 

2. STOP displaying agents next to homes they've never see (horrible for sellers).   

3. STOP trying to get between us and prospective sellers (Instant Offers is unfair to us). 

4. STOP allowing FSBOs to compete with our sellers (unfair to sellers who pay). 

I learned these things.  Zillow won't change. We need an alternative. A profession that sells homes should have its own website to market those homes. 

So I assembled a team to design a website that would bring our buyers back from third party websites like Zillow. If you've been around for a while, you remember that buyers used to come to us direct before we made the mistake of giving others our listing feeds.    

If we have the buyers, we will keep our sellers. We used compete with each other for listings and then help each other sell those listings. Now we have to compete with well-funded discounters like Redfin, iBuyers, and Zillow's Instant Offers. Our only chance is to come together under one website and make it the preferred website for homebuyers. If we have the buyers, we will keep our sellers. 

This new website will attract buyers in droves and change the way they shop for homes. Nothing like this website has ever existed before. It's a revolutionary improvement in home search websites. Buyers will ADORE IT, and flock to it in drovers. They will also  CALL YOU, something no other website has achieves 

Why are we crowdfunding this project? It would be easy to bring in outside investors, but they would want control and huge profits. That doesn't work because this website is being built to be owned by the real estate profession. I explain how in the video below.  

This is not a typical crowdfunding campaign. Regardless of the amount raised, this website is being built and will be available for contributors to START GENERATING BUYER LEADS in their market on Feb 19th. I will personally cover any funding shortfall. 

THREE reasons to contribute. Our profession needs its own website, our clients deserve a better website, and if we don't control the #1 website for buyers we will lose our sellers...count on it. 

ONE MORE reason to contribute. Be among the first in your market to take buyers from Zillow, Redfin... and make them  EXCITED TO TALK WITH YOU. That's exactly what this website will do. I know it's hard to believe but it's 100% true. 

The bottom line? Beginning Feb 19th this website (and integrated smartphone app) will flood you with EXCITED BUYERS who call you... I'll stake my 50 year reputation on it. So take a chance, make a contribution, enjoy the fantastic perks, and together let's take back our buyers.

Launch Plan Summary 

BUILD THE WEBSITE - Part of your crowdfunding contribution will be used to build the website.

CREATE THE MARKETING - Part of your crowdfunding contribution will be used to develop a television, print and Internet marketing campaign to promote the website.

DEVELOP THE SECURITIES OFFERING - Part of your crowdfunding contribution will be used to retain securities attorneys for a stock offering that will enable you to become an owner.

UNVEIL THE WEBSITE - The website will be unveiled at the Website Launch Party in Scottsdale February 17, 2018. Contributors will receive private access via a live video feed.

WEBSITE DEMO - Contributors will receive private access to the website beginning February 19, 2018.

MAKE IT IRRESISTIBLE TO BUYERS - The website will incorporate a unique component buyers will LOVE, something no other website has ever offered.

NOT AN MLS - This will be a public-facing, high-tech, aggressively marketed home search portal to compete with Zillow and Redfin.

NATIONAL MARKETING - After we have proven our website takes buyers away from every other site, we plan a securities offering to allow you to purchase ownership (if you wish). We project the first round will raise $50,000,000 to kick off the national advertising.

ONGOING REVENUE - The website could be further monetized through affiliate advertising and/or minimal subscription fees. That will be up to you because you'll be an owner.

GOOD INTENTIONS, NO SUCCESS - Many well-intended website projects failed because they didn't have a compelling buyer magnet, widespread agent ownership (leading to agent adoption), and a viable plan to fund a multi-million dollar marketing campaign. WE HAVE IT ALL.
