WAV Group Newsletter
By Kevin Hawkins

One of the greatest innovations that Brad Inman added to Inman Connect in recent years is a hidden treasure that not everyone may be aware of: the Learning Labs. These are held on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, August 9 and 10, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Learning Labs have become, in my experience, one of the best places where agents and brokers can learn tangible business practices that can be implemented immediately.

Brokers support the idea of making IDX feeds RESO-compliant. They applaud MLSs that make this bold move.  Join forces with RMLS™ and make the move in your MLS.  It’s hard to argue that standardized real estate listing data is not good for our industry.

Inman Connect SF is next week, and it’s so great to see the spirit and spunk that a startup called zavvie is bringing to our industry’s biggest real estate tech conference. The headline of the news release they issued this week touting their appearance at Connect SF: Real Estate Startup zavvie Breaks with the Status Quo at the Big Tech Show.”  The subhead is nearly as sassy: “Taps Top Pros for Inman Connect to Educate Agents, ‘Debunk’ Tech Hyperbole.”

Asking for feedback can be one of the hardest things we do as adults, especially if you know that feedback is going to be at least a little bit critical. Nobody likes to be told what they’re doing wrong.

If you ask any REALTOR® about the relationship between online website traffic and sales volume, they will tell you that there is a direct relationship. The conviction among Realtors® is that companies that have the most amount of consumer website traffic sell the most amount of homes. This belief has stirred the root of Realtor® emotions, causing them to vilify the Zillow Group.
