I‘ve been working toward more or less the same vision for my entire career: the belief that there is a ton of opportunity in real estate to improve the “real estate transaction experience” by implementing simple, easy-to-use, end-user-focused technology at every step of the process — an operating system for your real estate business, if you will.
As a one-person company, we (me + contractors and partner vendors) have done a fine job of delivering on several of the steps in the process, but I just don’t have the capacity to deliver in a way commensurate with the opportunity (and I’ve been itchin’ to ‘do more, faster’).
To that end, I’m happy to share some exciting news:
I recently purchased GraphicalData, Inc. with my business partner Aaron Davis.
We will be merging in what I’ve been doing at rahmn(dot)com (office blogs, agent blogs, ad tracking, strategy consulting, etc.) into what GraphicalData does (agent sites, office sites, intranet, CMA, MLS, neighborhood and school data/reporting tools, etc.).
Aaron is one of the original founders of GraphicalData. We’ve know each other since 2000 when we worked together at Windermere Technology. This past year or so we’ve worked on a few sites where we integrated our respective technology into a single site (see: http://windermerewhidbey.com/) with great success.
Seeing the potential to join forces led to the conversations that resulted in taking this most recent step.
I’d love to hear your thoughts and/or how we might be able to help you in your business. Just give us a shout.
