RESAAS Services (CNSX:RSS) has said it has signed a deal to power a slate of upcoming conferences with its social networking platform designed for real estate professionals. It will be partnering with Xplode Conference to power events to be held this year in Boca Raton, Beverly Hills, Dallas, Jacksonville and Atlanta.
The news comes just a day after the company said it plans to raise $2 million to meet with demand and expand its platform into Europe.
"We're very excited about our partnership with RESAAS," said Xplode Conference founder, Matt Fagioli. "Social connections with customers and other professionals is a critical piece of real estate networking. In fact, that's a huge understatement. Without a deep network you simply don't win in today's real estate industry.
"RESAAS is onto something really big here and Xplode Conference can't wait to be part of it."
RESAAS, whose social network is designed to allow real-time updating of property listings as well as the ability to sync with social media sites such as Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Twitter, is growing steadfast in its popularity, continually adding broker after broker to its platform. Known as real estate broadcasts, RESAAS' reblasts engine automatically generates all of an agency's real estate workflow into social content that is instantly pushed out to the RESAAS platform and other social networks.
At the Xplode events, staff, event attendees, sponsors and speakers will be networked together in a private Xplode Conference group on RESAAS' social network. The private group will be used for the upcoming conferences this year across the U.S., according to the statement.
"The Xplode Conferences are known for teaching agents the latest technologies to help them win business and provides a great place to network with like-minded people," said CMO at RESAAS, Michael St. Hilaire. "Extending that experience into the social world is what RESAAS is all about and we are looking forward to working with Matt and the Xplode team to make it happen."
Last week, RESAAS was picked to power Inman News' upcoming Real Estate Connect conference in San Francisco this July, showcasing the company's increasing popularity in the industry. The news came less than a week after RESAAS was chosen to power the upcoming summit hosted by the Asian Real Estate Association (AREAA) of America in Vancouver next month, and after it was the preferred social networking partner for HousingWire's Real Estate Expo.
