RISMEDIA, December 23, 2010—1000watt Consulting and Australia-based Classified Ad Ventures announced the launch of a new joint initiative—the Global Real Estate Index (www.globalrealestateindex.com). The goal of the Global Real Estate Index is to provide a comprehensive directory of real estate technology service providers around the world.
Originally launched in the United States as the 1000watt Index, the new Global Real Estate Index has now been expanded to include products and services in three key regions, including U.S. & Canada, Asia Pacific and Europe. Latin America and South America will be added shortly.
“When we launched the 1000watt Index in January, we knew it would never stop growing,” said 1000watt partner Brian Boero. “Over the last year, we’ve steadily added companies and categories. But during this time, we also received many submissions from companies overseas. We realized many of them were interesting to us. A lot of innovation was indeed happening outside U.S. borders.”
Categories included in the new Global Real Estate Index include website providers, CRM, lead generation, data, mapping, document management, video, virtual tours, social media, local data and mobile apps amongst others.
1000watt Consulting is an interactive marketing, communications and design agency with a unique emphasis on the real estate industry. Founded in 2007 by Marc Davison and Brian Boero, 1000watt Consulting has grown rapidly to become one of the leaders in online marketing in real estate.
Classified Ad Ventures was started by Simon Baker, formerly CEO of the REA Group. Classified Ad Ventures provides consulting services to portals and franchise groups in all major international markets, including Europe, Asia, USA, Australia & NZ.
Companies wishing to include their businesses on the directory can submit their company directly from the Index. There is no charge for inclusion. The Index currently carries holds over 600 listings.
