Max In Florida Ahead of NAR Convention

Max, the HomeGain Gorilla is doing some advance rest and relaxation in preparation for his second appearance at the National Association of Realtors Convention in Orlando

Over 2000 Realtors lined up at the HomeGain booth to meet Max and to take their turn at trying win a Max.

If you missed Max at the  recent Texas or California  Association of Realtors Conventions, you will have a chance to meet him in Orlando from November 7-10 at the HomeGain booth 3231.

Here is Max kicking back in Miami and the Florida Keys: Continue reading this post

Who Stole the Show at TAR® 2008?

A certain “not so unknown” orange gorilla!

Max Wearable Button

Max Wearable Button

Max was in high demand as he appeared at this year’s Texas REALTORS® Convention and Trade Expo. At the top of each hour Realtors® had a chance to take the loveable primate home!

That’s not the only reason it was such a big day for Max; HomeGain was selected to be the TAR Expo’s “Mystery Booth,” in which one lucky real estate agent won a cool $500 gift card courtesy of TAR® just for dropping her business card in Max’s bowl.

Plus, a Flip Ultra camcorder was up for grabs. Drum roll, please! The winner was Erica Sanchez of American Dream Realty in Texas.

We would like to thank everybody who stopped by our booth, including those sporting their chic HomeGain button (shown here). Request your free Max button.

A special thanks to Jennifer Perez and Kevin Malmgren for a terrific job at the booth. Next stop: California REALTORS® Convention and Trade Expo October 14th-16th. Hope to see all you CA agents there!

Real Estate Conference Comparison

Here are my impressions of three different “Real Estate 2.0” conferences I attended this year (also see my chart below):


Inman Real Estate Connect, July 2008 – Traditional industry leaders meet Real Estate 2.0 with Brad Inman. Well positioned in both worlds to balance the twain.

REBarCamp, July 2008 – “Wisdom of Crowds” perspective. Topics tend to diverge suddenly when others take the floor.

RETechSouth, March 2008 – Exclusively Real Estate 2.0, a blogger meet and greet. Best idea generating discussions went over newbie heads.


Inman Real Estate Connect – Well versed in Web 2.0 and can understand where the conversations need to be headed. I generally don’t like moderators who ask too specific questions, panelists want to discuss issues they understand without waiting for the question.

REBarCamp – Although I only participated in two discussions, the “one (amateur) moderator” format makes it hard to control the convo. The standard “Talking Heads” panel method does insure consistent focus on the topic at hand.

RETechSouth – Due to smaller size of conference (120 or so) the dialogue between the audience and Talking Heads provided its own form of moderation. Vibrant discussions as audience members stood in on panel. Continue reading this post
