Desk Clearing Time

by limonada

Though the Roost launch (see Roost.com Kicks over the RE Search Cart) is dominating most of the blogosphere today – there are a couple of other stories worth mentioning that I thought I’d throw out there.

Trouble in Bellevue?

John Cook reports that HouseValues cuts staff and its CFO is leaving.

Hope it wasn’t because of that ActiveRain deal… (see ActiveRain Finds Funding)

New Blogs for Redfin

Redfin Corporate Blog announced their Sweet Digs blogs have expanded eastwards and now cover neighborhooods in Boston and Washington D.C.

Ubertor Gets Some Love

Vancouver-based software developers Ubertor were profiled by Techcrunch, for making their elevator pitch via video. Nice work guys.

You know – come to think of it… if more companies did this and just sent a link to their video to me (rather than some boring press release) I may actually pay attention to them.

VendAsta Goes Social

Fellow Canadians VendAsta Technologies Inc. (which includes most of the former execs from Point2) have moved into their new digs and launched their new venture.

I’m not sure what impressed me more; how quickly they got up and running or the fact they were wearing t-shirts outside in Saskatoon in January. (h/t The Phoenix Real Estate Guy)
