Zolve, a self-proclaimed “Facebook for Real Estate Professionals,” launches tomorrow. The network already has 2,000 per-registered members, and a pretty interesting birth story. Zolve was actually designed in a garage in Baghdad by an Army captain and brokerage owner during his free time over there. No kiddin’.
The site is basically a place for realtors to get referrals and connect with other real estate professionals to increase business opportunities. For $395 a year (for the first year), members can set up their own pages, complete with photos (of properties and of themselves, I assume) and plenty of blogging space. There’s also an application that allows clients to leave feedback, eBay-style.
“Zolve is the first network built by real estate professionals, for real estate professionals, to connect, make money and build their spheres of influence,” said Zolve founder Brian Wilson in a release. “Its impact could be utterly transformative to how real estate professionals do business online.”
