There’s always something to howl about

Schmoozing on-line with the Junior League may or may not get you a listing, but TwitBooking is corporate networking on steroids.

Spam from ARMLS:

On February 13, 2012, at a Special Called Meeting of the ARMLS Board of Directors, Bob Bemis tendered his resignation notice as ARMLS CEO, to accept the newly created position of Vice President of Partner Relations for Zillow, Inc. in Seattle.

Good on him. I’m thinking the retirement plan might be better, although I wonder how Bemis will fare in a non-DMV environment. I might start to worry about an echo-chamber, too, if it were me at the helm, but I don’t have much to do with social media — or with that kind of networking — to begin with.

    I think a VP of Partner Relations is the guy who buys the Maker’s Mark for the MLS guys who can kick Diverse Solutions off the feed. If the s Maker’s Mark route doesn’t work, expect Zillow’s gloves to come off. They have a huge equity valuation to justify and the shareholders are not interested in Social Rotarian cooperation niceties.

    I imagine Zillow/Diverse Solution is madly working on a VOW replacement product for Diverse Solutions’ IDX product for their clients in Denver.
