Welcome to my personal blog, Vendor Alley. My name is Greg Robertson, I’m co-founder of W&R Studios, a software company dedicated to creating simple and focused software. Our products include a social bookmarking site for real estate called Dwellicious (now owned and operated by VHT, Inc.) and Cloud CMA a super simple way of generating amazing property reports for real estate professionals. In 2014 we launched Cloud Streams, a property alert and collaboration tool for real estate agents and their clients.
Dwellicious was named as a finalist for the 2009 Inman Innovator Award, under the “Most Innovative Technology” category. Cloud CMA was also a finalist for the Inman Innovator Award, in 2010.
This blog is dedicated to the real estate technology industry. Lately I’ve been writing reviews on new products and websites. I also love to cover trade shows and conferences and keep up with all the major industry players. It’s an exciting business with a lot of colorful, smart and talented people.
So set your reading glasses to ‘satire’, and join me as we try to make sense of the crazy business known as real estate.
