RealMassive’s CEO in New York Times Today!

We’re pretty excited about A Conversation With Joshua McClure …. Below is a snippet of the article but check out the complete interview, condensed and conducted by reporter Vivian Marino, on the New York Times today!

Mr. McClure, 41, is a founder and the chief executive of RealMassive, a start-up open marketing and data platform specifically for commercial real estate. The company, which is based in Austin, Tex., serves 21 markets, including Austin, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston and Los Angeles, and plans to expand into New York.

Q. How would you describe what your company does?

A. It’s a pretty large concept. We’re starting as a marketing platform. The marketing discipline is very underrepresented in commercial real estate — it’s mostly a relationship sales business. And so we want to accentuate that relationship sales dynamic by empowering the marketing dynamic.

Q. How so?

A. One of the things that we’re changing about the industry is that we’re giving control of the data back to our customers, the industry professionals.

It’s free to list the information. It’s also free to consume that content. Both of those sort of make us unique. It allows a pretty tight collaboration with Google, so that Google can come in and grab those listings and make those available to people who are searching on Google for listings.
