Giving outsiders access to our listing data was the biggest
mistake in business history. Zillow and others used our
listings for their benefit, not ours... harming our clients and
weakening our profession in the process.
We must act now to take back control of our listings, our
business and our future... before it's too late.
The answer is to have our own aggressively marketed website, a
home search portal owned and operated by America's real estate
agents. It will be a website that sells our listings instead of
using our listings against us.
This crowdfunding campaign is to raise the $1.1 million we need
to build this website, develop the marketing, and then let every
agent in America take a look. When we have industry consensus that
the website and marketing are amazing, we will launch a Regulation
A+ securities offering available only to real estate agents and
brokers. The goal is to turn control of the website over to the real
estate industry in 2018 and raise $50,000,000 from the stock
offering to begin national marketing. If only 10% of Realtors
purchased just $375 in stock, we would easily raise the $50,000,000.
Save Our Amazing Profession
This is the best "save our amazing profession" plan
ever devised. We have committed, capable leadership and widespread
industry support. Please contribute what you can. This project
deserves a chance. It may be the last chance we have to Stop Zillow
and others who intend to stop us.
