Can a broker or an association create a real estate portal that not only works, but can succeed? Who will fund it, and how will it actually compete with the Big Three?
Marilyn Wilson and Rob Hahn are ready to go toe to toe at Inman Connect to discuss this hot-button topic.
Wilson is a founding partner of WAV Group, the company acting as the interim consulting and communications firm for the Broker Public Portal, the first national MLS consumer-facing listing portal.

Wilson is also one of the founders of RETechnology.com, the most comprehensive site for real estate technology information and education available today. She serves on the board of directors for the Council of MLS and NAR’s Green Resource Council and participates in the President’s Council of Cornell Women, WITI (Women in Technology International).
Hahn is the founder and managing partner of 7DS Associates, a marketing, strategy and technology consulting firm specializing in creative solutions rooted in strategic analysis and data.
With a varied background from Wall Street, corporate law, technology, product development, media and entertainment, startups, fashion and professional card playing, Rob brings a unique perspective to business problems, and is ready to poke holes in the Broker Public Portal business model to see if it holds water.
Hahn started in real estate at Realogy where he headed the interactive marketing for Coldwell Banker Commercial, and he most recently worked as the vice president of marketing at Onboard Informatics.
In addition, he writes the popular blog Notorious R.O.B., where he opines on topics in real estate, technology, marketing, social media and strategy.
