Orlando, FL, July 22, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- For 15 years, Inman News has been recognizing the Nation’s best of the best real estate-based companies with, what has proven to be the industry’s top honor awards to those who have proven to be both technologically and innovatively sound in their applications and business dealings. This comes in the infancy of Tech Savvy Agent’s life, since they have yet to crest their one year anniversary of being founded. Past award winners have included Google Maps, Curbed.com, ActiveRain and Altos Research.
Tech Savvy Agent has certainly proven that the philosophies and strategies are not only highly effective, but now award-worthy too. Co-Founder, Chris Smith, explained his insight as to how they reached this milestone so swiftly, by saying it was “ultimately due to the entire team’s passion, drive and dedication to what they love to do.”
The team at Tech Savvy Agent comprises of Co-Founders, Chris Smith and Stephen Pacinelli, and Lead Contributor, Suzanne Roy. Smith and Pacinelli both have been speaking in front of thousands of Realtors across the nation over the past decade regarding tools, social media, online marketing and techniques that Realtors can take and use on a daily basis within their respective businesses. Roy has owned and operated her own real estate virtual assistant business, V.A. Work, over the last 8 years, providing up-to-the-minute online marketing, blog design and social networking services to Brokers and Realtors alike throughout North America.
Smith, Pacinelli and Roy created Tech Savvy Agent after it became apparent there was no true resource available for Realtors to go to, to gain relevant and reliable tech news, tools and tips of the trade. By utilizing these free tools, Realtors are now able to take their businesses to a whole new level and become a “Tech Savvy Agent”.
Tech Savvy Agent has been bringing the most cutting edge and sought after information to Realtors throughout North America both consistently and creatively. Over the past few months alone, they have conducted exclusive interviews with individuals such as motivational speaker and author, Tom Ferry, Oodle's CEO, Craig Donato, and Coldwell Banker's VP of Marketing, Mike Fisher. Most recently, Tech Savvy Agent hit the news with the interview conducted with Jonathan Rivera, owner of "The Official Real Estate Referral Group" Fan Page on Facebook, when this referral business to Realtors page was shut down - however, with almost 450 retweets and over 350 facebook "shares", his Fan Page was reinstated (with a new NAR-compliant fan page name) the very next day.
