Cat Paw and WR lettersThere were two announcements made this week that I think will have some pretty significant impacts on real estate. Wolfnet announced that they are now fully live on the national IDX data feed for Canada. Moreover, every application that Wolfnet offers has now been tailored to the needs of Canadian real estate. Wolfnet has long been a leader in property search solutions in America, notably serving search solutions to every Keller Williams agent in addition to many other brands. Now Wolfnet’s Canadian customer will have access to the same benefits.

The second announcement came from W&R Studios, makers of Cloud CMA. Cloud CMA became popular by MLSs who wanted to deliver a CMA solution to subscribers that is fast, easy, and mobile. It has resulted in a huge success reaching over 95,000 users. Now, Woolley and Robertson have focused on another clunky feature of many of today’s MLS systems – the automatic notification. They call it Cloud Streams. It allows agents to configure a search for their client(s) that will notify them whenever a new or updated listing matches their search criteria. Like Cloud CMA, it is fast, easy, and mobile.

Kudos to both Wolfnet and W&R Studios for delivering applications that will make a difference in the way that real estate services the consumer. Both companies are friends and customers, and we are rooting for their success.

W&R Studios is scheduling demonstrations of Cloud Streams for Midyear. Reach out to Greg Robertson if you want to be among the first to see this product.
