ATLANTA, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- RealtyJoin, a free interactive social and business networking site for the real estate industry in the United States and Canada, announces the launch of version 2.0. This totally redesigned real estate social networking site does everything that the original version of RealtyJoin did, only better. The new, enhanced RealtyJoin website is a social marketplace for the entire real estate industry where individuals can connect, network and advertise potential opportunities.
RealtyJoin 2.0 offers a more user-friendly integrated website that includes WordPress blogs for all users, upgraded navigation, enhanced profiles, video options, upcoming events, the ability to post status updates, photos and video.
"We decided to start RealtyJoin because we saw that real estate investors, REALTORS®, tradespeople, home builders and designers were looking for good, Internet-based tools to help them network, find and advertise opportunities," said Andy Heller, a veteran real estate investor and public speaker, as well as RealtyJoin co-founder. "Our site is a community for real estate agents, investors, plumbers and electricians, stagers, home builders and anyone who believes that the free exchange of information will increase sales."
Ilyce Glink, an award-winning, nationally syndicated columnist, blogger, bestselling author and radio talk show host recently joined the RealtyJoin team to oversee content strategy. Glink says she has been impressed with RealtyJoin's ability to connect individuals and offer them the ability to share pertinent industry related content.
"In just a few short months, RealtyJoin proved there is a real need for a place where real estate investors and the companies they work with can connect and share information," she said. A number of high profile real estate groups and associations are participating in RealtyJoin, including the Atlanta Board of Realtors®, Foreclosure.com, Southeast Valley Regional Association of Realtors®, and RIS Media.
RealtyJoin offers the real estate industry an opportunity to gain business traction by starting online conversations and relationship with buyers, sellers, architects, contractors, brokers, suppliers and other professionals.
