Realty ONE Group’s exceptional agents are among the biggest supporters of the company’s announcement as the exclusive provider of Curb Call, a new “showing-on-demand” app, in four major markets. The innovative app will be FREE to all Realty ONE Group agents.
Curb Call is a new mobile app that allows real estate agents to monetize small windows of free time throughout their day by picking up on-demand showing requests from buyers who are at a listing and want an immediate tour.
“Our top producers immediately recognized its potential,” said Kuba Jewgieniew, CEO and Founder of Realty ONE Group Inc., sharing some of the comments he’s heard from three of the company’s major markets:
“Curb Call will have a huge impact on our industry. It's an exciting
technology and I know any agent hoping for more buyer deals will want
it. I'm lucky to be with a brokerage that has done their due diligence
in securing tools like Curb Call for their agents ahead of competitors.”
Russell Shaw, Realty ONE Group Paradise Valley, AZ. 350 closed transactions in 2013 and recently named on REAL Trends “The Thousand” list.
“Curb Call is an innovative, cutting-edge technology system that
provides a positive experience for the Realtor and buyer. It is not easy
to find a user-friendly software that creates win/win results -
especially with today's on-demand consumer marketing - but Curb Call
provides all of this and more. When a buyer is ready to tour a home,
this app aligns them with a qualified agent in minutes. It is brilliant
and will truly redefine the consumer experience when looking to purchase
Jim Brooks, Realty ONE Group Green Valley, NV. 180 closed transactions in 2013.
“As a Realty ONE Group agent I am consistently impressed with the level
of tools and services they provide their professionals. This is one more
thing that's going to positively impact my business and ability to close
more deals. It's reassuring to know that I've aligned with a brokerage
that is on the cutting edge of technology and not only understands real
estate but is creating the future of real estate.”
Jeana Keough, Realty ONE Group Mission Viejo, CA. Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star.
“Simple, fast and effective, Curb Call is the next big thing to hit the real estate market, and if agents are smart, they will jump on this new technology,” Jewgieniew said. “We all know the landscape of real estate is constantly changing, and in order to stay ahead, we need to be on call with clients. Curb Call allows agents to be exactly that - on call. This is going to connect home buyers and agents like nothing before.”
How Curb Call works: Available agents open Curb Call and set themselves to "available for showings.” A buyer not already attached to an agent can view available agents in the area where their listing of interest is located. The agent who receives a "buyer alert" can view the buyer's name, profile and location, then accept or decline the showing request. If accepted, the agent gets the buyer’s complete contact information and sets up the showing.
Curb Call is officially launching with Realty ONE Group as its exclusive partner in San Diego, Orange County, Las Vegas metro area, and Phoenix metro area, with more locations to be announced in the coming weeks.
"Partnering with a progressive company like Realty ONE Group gave us access to top agents in key markets,” said Seth Siegler, CEO of Curb Call Technologies, Inc. “We knew their most successful agents would immediately see the benefits of connecting with buyers in the late stages of their search, allowing them to close more deals.”

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...
