Frances is not exactly unbiased (she’s a
“community manager” Managing Editor at RealTown), but I’ll play along…
She (accurately) quotes me as saying that:
“In the three years that I’ve been watching InternetCrusade, I’m yet to see them do something that tells me they want to be on the leading edge.
and then somehow claims my “facts” are wrong by dipping into stuff Saul did 10 years ago: (i.e. first customizable website for agents, largest online community of real estate professionals, first blog platform, etc.).
I completely stand by my original statement. In the three years that I’ve been watching InternetCrusade, I’m yet to see them do something that tells me they want to be on the leading edge.
Then Frances challenged me to play on the RealTownBlog platfrom. Problem is… I already have and I was not impressed. Multiple agents have given me access to their backend over the past two years in order to help them out with issues they were having. Frustratingly, the issues I was trying to solve were almost always basic problems that were solved long ago with WordPress, like personalizing the theme or using a hosted domains.
Nonetheless, it’s not all necessarily a negative thing in my book that Poin2 picked up Saul. I also standby my other statement which said there are some agents, like Frances, who are extremely devoted “to the InternetCrusade guys because of the great work that they’ve done over the years introducing (softly) Realtors all over the country to internet technologies, which will make it all the more interesting to see what Saul does at Point2.”
