FT. LAUDERDALE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/14 -- Just when everyone thought real estate agents had everything they needed at their fingertips, a Ft. Lauderdale company prepares to launch its latest online video web page.
RealBiz Media Group (OTCQB: RBIZ), a real estate digital media and technology company with a network of over 250,000 real estate agents and brokers, will be launching its personally branded online video website, Nestbuilder Agent, designed to allow the over one million (1,000,000) real estate agents in the US the ability to syndicate video to clients through social media venues and email. And even more important to the real estate industry, the estimated 800,000 agents who find themselves without listings each year will have a one-touch source to increase their client base. The launch is anticipated as of March 24, 2014.
"This extremely personalized and targeted functionality of Nestbuilder Agent is a boon for agents who want creative outreach options to capture the attention and the imagination of prospects, clients and the general public with new and innovative content," said Steve Marques, President and CRO of RealBiz Media Group in announcing the March 24, 2014 launch.
What makes this new technology different than other real estate listing and showcase services is Nestbuilder Agent is designed to allow over one million real estate agents the ability to claim and control their own personalized online video search portal.

"The site is designed to enhance the home shopping experience for homebuyers with informative, entertaining and highly targeted listings and helpful content," Kerby added.
Nestbuilder Agent site, Nestbuilder.com, allows agents the ability to not only promote homes but their personal brands. These can then be syndicated to clients through social media venues and email.
Capturing marketing leads and catering directly to specific clients is a win-win not only for real estate agents but clients, homebuyers and consumers who, thanks to Nestbuilder Agent, will now connect in a personalized and meaningful way whether looking for their dream home to purchase or wanting to sell.
"Nestbuilder Agent is a highly effective tool for agents every day; not just when they have listings," Marques added. "It empowers agents to maintain an ongoing dialogue with their clients, share agent video reels with family and friends and is just a fantastic tool to promote their business through a diverse array of communication Medias," he concluded.
RealBiz's Nestbuilder Agent is not just another pretty video face on the market. It is designed to drive consumers to real estate agents online video web page. Components include agent profiles with their contact details, credentials and testimonials. Components also include agent homepages with their listings and any homes they'd like to add; personal collections allowing agents to hand pick homes for their prospects and customers as well as video marketing with all types of how to and tip videos they can send to prospects and clients. Agents can track the performance of their home page, collections and individual listings in the results area and agents can modify their listings and their players as well. It is anticipated agents will be using Nestbuilder Agent as their primary contact media, thereby optimizing their personal brand, including their personal information as well as more specific information about their services, listings and even their community. Increased SEO rankings are expected to drive traffic directly back to agents and increase the duration of client viewership.
Nestbuilder Agent does this with an easy to use drag-and-drop dashboard, including videos of current listings of homes for sale as well as other listings of interest to target demographic areas. Agents can customize to include general interest video content, including home improvement tips and design concepts.
"We will continue to enhance Nestbuilder Agent," Kerby said. "Agents will be provided additional branding strategies, analytics, educational marketing content and options that will enhance their ongoing community communications outreach efforts," the CEO of RealBiz concluded.

The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for applica...

With the arrival of the Big Data revolution, a data professional is expected to master a broad spectrum of complex domains including data processing, mathematics, programming languages, machine learning techniques, and business knowledge. While this mastery is undoubtedly important, this narrow focus on tool usage has divorced many from the imagination required to solve real-world problems. As the demand for analysis increases, the data science community must transform from tool experts to "data...

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money.
