“This milestone is great, but we have bigger things in mind as we move forward in 2010," said John Reilly, CEO/Publisher of RealTown. "We’ve been working hard on a few large projects which we will be rolling out in the next few months.
“After building the agent infrastructure, we are shifting our programming efforts on bringing in consumers. We’ll help out the consumer by giving them free, localized information and advice. This means more interaction between the agent and the consumer. This should help real estate professionals build social capital. And, as a result, they will be more likely to get leads and referrals through their membership at RealTown.com.”
