Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Vendor "Cage Match" Posts starting next week.

Starting next week I will be writing a series of posts pitting two or more Vendors against each other.


The posts will focus on what I think the Vendors are doing right and what they are doing wrong.

Here are the match ups.

Vendor Cage Match #1 -“Battle of the Super Portals”
Realtor.com Vs. Trulia Vs. Zillow Vs. Cyberhomes

Vendor Cage Match #2 (Tag Team) – “MLS Smackdown”
Rapattoni Vs. FNRES (or Cyberhomes, or FNIS, or whatever they are called now) Vs. Marketlinx Vs. FBS Vs. MRIS*

Vendor Cage Match #3 (Tag Team) “Brand Bloodshed Brawl”
remax.com vs. century21.com vs. coldwellbanker.com vs. era.com vs. kellerwilliams.com

Vendor Cage Match #4 (Tag Team) “Agent and Enterprise ‘No Rules’ Street Fight”

Dominion Enterprises Vs. FNRES (or Cyberhomes, or FNIS, or whatever they are called now) Vs. MOVE.com

*Wake up people, MRIS is a Vendor.

So join me as we flush the giant turd we called 2008 and………..



  1. There better be a doctor in the house!

    Pitting such fierce man-eating corporate competitors against one another is sure to lead to bloodshed.

    Can Cyberhomes make it three rounds?

    Will team Realogy with Century 21 and Coldwell Banker have Sotheby’s, ERA and BG&H sitting ringside for support? How will they ever be able to stay out of the ring?

    Sounds like non stop action.
