10 years

by Greg Robertson on May 30th, 2018

W+R Studios’ first office (rented cubicles) in Boca Raton, FL

It was 10 years ago today that Dan Woolley and I left our gigs at eNeighborhoods and started what would become W+R Studios. We had already been business partners for over 15 years at that point.

Looking back, launching a real estate software company in 2008 was insane. The country was reeling. Our new president, Barack Obama, walked in to the worst financial crisis in our country’s history, all caused by bad loans for, you guessed it, real estate.

But we were optimistic about us, the country and our ideas.

We didn’t officially open a bank account until later that year, with a modest starting balance of $2,500.

10 years later, our team has grown to over 40 of the most creative and talented people working in real estate. I love working with them everyday. Our products are used everyday by hundreds of thousands of real estate professionals all over North America, we have won awards and we just published our 10 Millionth Cloud CMA.

And in the next couple months we have some exciting new things to announce that I’m sure will bring W+R Studios even further success.

When I look at the past 26 years Dan and I have been business partners I couldn’t think of anyone else I would want to share this success with. As impatient as I am Dan reminds me everyday that the journey is the reward.

That’s so true, and like the old Turkish proverb says,

“No road is long with good company.”

From → Love, W+R Studios
