(This is a re-post from FEBRUARY 25, 2013 during the early stages of our development)
[pey-shuh ns] the quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like.
This is dictionary.com’s definition of patience.
My definition of patience is simply waiting for the time to be right. Like a lion waiting in the weeds ready to pounce on his breakfast or the five seconds of advertising I’m forced to endure on Youtube before each video, the time will come.
We’ve been public about our concept for around six months and felt it was finally time to give the Real Estate world a glimpse into what we are doing. Our super-talented development team finally gave our marketing team the green light to do so. Man those guys are patient! So with permission to move forward we produced a video showcasing some of the features that are on the way. This is the first public preview of what the platform looks like. We realised our patience was paying off because the response was so overwhelming. I mean, it’s not like we launched the platform. It was just a video! But it seems to have captured the essence of what we have been building. And it has resonated with so many Realtors who saw the video. Here is just a sampling of some of the feedback we received:
“It looks good. Let me know if you have a beta testing phase. I would like to participate. “
OK, someone finally found out what we need, congratulations, count me in!
“Sounds extremely interesting!”
“Great video. Great idea for busy realtors who don’t have a lot of time to blog and post on all the social network sites. “
If you haven’t seen the video yet, I invite you to watch it HERE.
Now that some of you have seen what we are doing you can only imagine the amount of patience we are going to need now. We want to launch this thing right now!! However, we have committed to building the best platform possible and we want to make sure everything is just right before we release it. And we have the good fortune of having the resources to do what we need to do to build this right. That being said, we are inching so much closer now. The content manager is working great and the social network connection tools are just amazing. We’re currently working on refining the network profiles and additional refinements to the social media connections tool. Our initial small testing group has provided invaluable feedback. We are addressing some suggestions and are looking to deploy our next internal release in about 2-3 weeks. At that point we plan to widen the testing group. Some of you have requested to get on the Beta test list. We will be adding to the beta list with each new phase leading up to our 1.0 release. Those of you who have asked to get on the list, you will be hearing from me very soon. If you are interested in getting on the beta test list for your area please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m so excited with each passing day as we get closer to our launch. I’m just waiting for the day when we plug in, roll up our sleeves, take our platform for a drive and realise it is READY! OOOH, I can taste it now. I assure you we are getting very close. I’m proud of the work our team is doing and the patience and perseverance they have displayed every step of the way. The wait will be so worth it.
Thanks for reading.
