Welcome, I’m Greg Robertson and I like to write and talk about the intersection of real estate and technology.  This is my blog, Vendor AlleyWhere Real Estate Gets Its Dirt.  I started this blog back in 2007.

First off, let’s get this out of the way. The opinions expressed on my blog are my own and not the views of my employer.

I co-founded my first real estate software company back in 1992.  My recent company, W+R Studios, was acquired by Lone Wolf Technologies in December 2020.  I currently work at Lone Wolf as a General Manager of MLS.

W+R Studios are the creators of the Cloud CMA and the rest of the Cloud Agent Suite.  Cloud CMA has over 700,000 subscribers across North America.

Cloud MLX (also part of the Cloud Agent Suite) won Inman News’ “Most Innovative Technology” award in 2016.

I am also a small investor in eWebinar, which is a great tool for automated webinars.

I wrote a book, The Art of the CMA

The book is for real estate agents and brokers about using Comparative Market Analysis reports (CMAs) in innovative ways to increase business.  You can order a personalized copy of the book here, or on Amazon.

Oh yeah, I have a couple of podcasts

I started two podcasts about real estate, the first one is Listing Bits, where I interview different people in the real estate technology industry. The second podcast, Industry Relations, I co-host with The Notorious ROB (a.k.a. Rob Hahn) where we discuss current topics in the organized real estate industry. Both podcasts are available on iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher.

You can watch Rob and me on the Industry Relations YouTube Channel.


From Amazon:

Best Actionable Real Estate Book I’ve Read Read this in it’s entirety over two days. Quick read, very informative, and I highly recommend. Not your usual (and typical) real estate book. I was already a huge fan of CloudCMA and the positive impact it had on my business.”

From Apple iTunes:

Excellent source of industry trends – Really learning a lot from Greg and guests about industry trends. Greg has a tremendous amount of real estate technology experience and generously shares his insights.”

Intelligent – Binge listened to just about every episode! Love the interviews, nerdy humor & thought-provoking dialogue. Hands down one of the best real estate podcasts.”
