Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

CoreLogic launches OneHomeowner

CoreLogic Launches OneHomeowner – A New Engagement Platform for Agents to Nurture Relationships and Win Business 

“Today’s clients have portals to manage their healthcare, personal finances and education, but there isn’t anything to manage their home,” said Kevin Greene, general manager of Real Estate Solutions at CoreLogic. “CoreLogic solves this problem with OneHomeowner. Just as importantly, it gives agents an effective tool to ​stay connected in a valuable way ​and deliver an exceptional ​homeowner ​experience to their clients ​for years​.”

With housing inventory levels still at record lows it is going to be important that brokers and agents look at other avenues to retain and grow their business. I think there is a tremendous opportunity for agents who go beyond just the buy and sell aspect of their business and look for opportunities on the nurture side too. They already have their trust, what other services can they provide?

Nova Scotia adds mandatory fields for adaptable homes

Nova Scotia REALTORS®: leading the way in searching for adaptable homes

“Director of NSAR’s MLS® System, Bonnie Wigg says, “With the most common barriers people with mobility issues face being in the built environment, NSAR worked with several key partners to look at how we could make a difference in searching for an adaptable home. Everyone’s definition of an accessible home is different, so adding more information to listings will enable people to determine if a home is adaptable for them.”

Can AI solve agent responsiveness?

Luxury Presence Launches AI Lead Nurture, an Advanced AI-Powered Lead Engagement Tool

The tool automatically responds to inbound messages 24/7 and continues to strategically follow up, keeping leads warm and driving them toward an appointment request. It also does the work of learning a lead’s timeline, budget, and preferences, allowing busy real estate professionals to prioritize the highest-quality prospects.”

Luxury Presence

I’ve written a lot about agent responsiveness (or lack there of). AI could be one of the many ways to help solve this. I’ll keep an eye out of this tool and others and wait to hear feedback from agents and brokers on how they can best tackle this problem.

MLS-Touch reaches “Mobile Milestone”

MLS-Touch by CoreLogic Hits One Million Agent “Mobile Milestone”

“The demand for MLS-Touch from multiple listing organizations and Associations across the US and Canada has been tremendous,” said Charles Drouin, Senior Product Leader at CoreLogic. “We are seeing rapid adoption and usage, with MLS-Touch disrupting the leaderboard and becoming the preferred mobile app used by real estate agents today,” he added.”


Bravo. I have to say CoreLogic’s acquisition of Prospects Software was super smart. Add to that the timing of CoStar’s acquisition of Homesnap (and their failure to resign the BPP) along with a well executed sales strategy and you get these results. Big congrats to Charles, Kevin and the rest of the team.
