ActiveRain Welcomes BlueRoof360 to the Family

By
Real Estate Technology with ActiveRain

Today, ActiveRain owner Ben Kinney finalized and announced the purchase of BlueRoof360, a bleeding edge IDX website platform that left me speechless and nodding my head the first time I saw the technology.

(ok, that's not entirely true. I am rarely speechless. But watching BlueRoof360 CEO Jarad Hull demo the technology their team built, my mind was certainly spinning with the possibilities....and they are all good)

Inman has the story, (please note, at this time the article is behind Inman's pay wall) we'd love if you would head over there, read some of the details and leave a comment with your thoughts and/or support.

One of the exciting things about this acquisition for me, is that it gives us a great opportunity to bring more value to the ActiveRain community and especially our Rainmaker members. Over the next few months, our Rainmakers, the people who have supported us, in many cases for years, will have an opportunity to get massive value for being so supportive. 

Adding the Blueroof360 IDX product to the Ben Kinney Companies stable of technology products brings us one step closer to creating an end to end solution for real estate agents to be able to market, manage and grow their business all from one single spot. 

I've had a chance to sit with Ben or many occassions over the last couple of months and to really digest his full vision for building tools that help real estate agents generate more leads, be more productive, and at the end of the day, have a better life. Each time we do this, I leave even more convinced that his vision will become a reality. And that reality will have lots of positive implications for every ActiveRain member, and especially our Rainmakers.

Hang on folks, the next few months are going to be fun!

I had heard that Ben had acquired a new technology - will this be integrated into Brivity or be a stand alone? How's the baby by the way?

Oh- I have been working with Jake Hahs at Brivity and I finally bought the landing pages - I am working with getting those set up - My fingers are crossed for lots of success!

I hope this can take the all (must be overly involved) WP site that I have. Tell me it comes with all the basics we've come to need! Thanks for update.

I think you and Ben are the best. I know you look out for us, the community here on AR. 

That being said, I hope you are planning to improve on what blueroof 360 has done. The sites are not on a wordpress platform so the biggest question is if the IDX is going to be WP compatible. 

I am a bit of an eye candy snob and the interface looks very old fashioned and much like a PC program.  I am more into the seemless look of apps made for macs. :) 

The IDX looks clunky and old fashioned as well. I would say it is in need of a design upgrade. I was expecting more of an IDX broker look and feel or at least the market leader works. 

I wish it was Market Leader you were buying:) and then create a WP plugin for it:) 

Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for working on creating an end to end solution for real estate agents. Stitching together disparate platforms is never as seamless as advertised. I'm looking forward to Brivity being the single system that brings it all together under one roof.
