Venice Consulting Group Powers Online Real Estate Community Web Site IWantAnOffer.com
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New social networking and transactional site brings buyers, sellers, agents and other real estate professionals together
CULVER CITY, CA. November 26, 2007 — Venice Consulting Group (VCG), a leading software development and consulting firm, today announced the completion of real estate community web site IWantAnOffer.com. The new site brings together interested parties in the field of real estate in an online collaborative environment to allow members to achieve their goals. Members include buyers, sellers, real estate agents, developers, investors, and service providers.
IWantAnOffer.com had a target of being the first to provide social networking for the real estate industry and went through multiple vendors looking for a development firm that could execute on the demanding technical requirements while meeting the aggressive initial launch date. Eventually they turned to VCG to succeed where others had failed, and the team at VCG delivered a site with an intuitive interface and robust functionality.
The project was kicked off in mid-August and completed in only ten weeks, an extremely aggressive timeline given the complexity of the project. The site was developed using the Microsoft .NET Framework including ASP.NET, C# and ADO.NET as well as XML for data transport.
Membership is free at IWantAnOffer.com, and enables the use of all features including communicating with other members, contributing to message boards, contacting sellers, adding members as friends, watching properties and much more.
“It’s not an exaggeration to say that our business would not be what it is today without the contribution of the Venice Consulting Group,” says Scott Lurie, President of IWantAnOffer.com. “They used their in-depth knowledge of our business to build an online application that met all of our goals. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results, as are our members.”
“The Internet has completely changed the way businesses operate, and real estate is no exception,” says Eric Weiss, partner at VCG. “Companies that find ways to bring parties together, remove barriers and lower costs will always be successful. IWantAnOffer.com successfully tackles a cumbersome industry that has traditionally lacked the ability to interact.”
