NAR seeks product testers for tech incubator

Reviewers will receive free test accounts, exclusive discounts

Real estate agents and brokers, ever wish you could have told a tech company a thing or two about what you need before they try to sell you a product? Now is your chance. The National Association of Realtors is recruiting product testers for its “tech accelerator” program, REach. Announced in November, REach’s aim is to help companies develop tech tools especially for Realtors and others in the industry. The inaugural group of seven companies participating in the program this year include BombBomb, Treater, Lumentus, Planwise, Reach150, Updater and Workface. Applications are due Aug. 15. Those who wish to serve on REach’s “Insight Panel” will receive free test accounts and exclusive discounts from the companies they review in exchange for their feedback.
