Opened in 1995, the original Real Estate Cafe was the nation’s first
internet-based, walk-in housing information center. With 1,200 square
feet of retail space, the original cafe was part bookstore, part cafe,
part adult education center, and part real estate office.
After two years of pursuing dot.com dreams, which included a
consulting assignment with the UN on our proposal to use real estate
revenues to provide shelter subsidies for AIDS orphans, The Real Estate
another industry first:
In July 2003, we became the first real estate company in the nation to enable
consumers to access MLS listings from the convenience of their own cell
phone through our "Take-out Menu."
2005 marks our 10th anniversary and to celebrate, we hope to teach 50 to 100 people how to save $1 million by World AIDS Day. We are also excited about using blogs to transform the real estate industry and invite you to join the ongoing consumer revolution in real estate by:
- posting your comments on our blog and sending up tips; and
- telling friends who are buying or selling a home about our continuing efforts to help them "beat the system."
It has been a privilege to occasionally act as a spokesperson for a new generation of money-saving real estate business models, and we look forward to speaking with you — by email, phone, or in person — to explore how we might help you save money as well.
