We're Going to Have to Crash the Convention, Like Jesse Jackson in 1988!

BusinessWeek is surveying its readers about the best new online real estate service of 2007. Somehow Redfin didn’t even make the list of contenders, probably because we’re not available in many U.S. markets. But we’re the only ones challenging the traditional real estate industry, by actually brokering the purchase and sale of homes. The world may still need what one eye-rolling friend of mines now likes to call a YAREM (“Yet Another Real Estate Mashup”) but it absolutely cries out for someone using the Internet to change the game in real estate. Maybe next year, we’ll make the grade.

    It’s more fun storming the gates this way. The editor probably made a mistake missing this.

    Who cares what Business Week thinks? If your clients are happy, that’s the best advertising you can get. They will probably give it to a firm that isn’t very innovative and spends a lot on print advertising in the magazine, and still uses IBM Selectrics to put together client contracts.

    Lots of specialists argue that loans help people to live the way they want, just because they can feel free to buy necessary goods. Furthermore, some banks give secured loan for all people.
