In last week’s post, Part 2 of this series, we gave you the chance to see one of the products hatched during our “hack week” – “Cloud MLX”. This product was created with the idea that it could be used as an alternative front-end to an MLS system.
This time I’m going to highlight our other team of developers, Tory and Derek. Their product was “Cloud Open House” – an easy way to host, promote, and follow up with leads at an Open House. And of course, make agents look awesome while doing it.
Meet Tory Brady!
Tory has been with W&R Studios for about 3 years. He began his career as an electrician, so it’s safe to say he’s been in real estate a long time. Tory likes to surf and has even spent some time living in Australia. He has a great eye for design, as you will see in the video below. Back in 2012, we released a Spanish version of Cloud CMA and Tory starred in our release video. He improvised the whole thing and it’s pretty hilarious. Check it out for a quick laugh.
Meet Derek Rush
Derek has been with us for a little over 3 years, and was the first developer (aside from Dan Woolley) to join W&R Studios. Derek makes me jealous because he can grow a phenomenal beard. And I cannot. He likes going to gym, discussing politics, and learning new tech. When he’s not at the office, he likes to hang with his nieces and their pugs.
Tory and Derek hunkered down during “hack week” to build “Cloud Open House” from the ground up. In just one week they built what you’ll see in the video below, which is a really fresh take on Open House software. I know there are already a few other products centered around Open Houses, one the most popular is Open House Pro, but I think you’ll agree that this concept is unique.
So lets get to it. Here is the raw footage of Tory and Derek’s product, “Cloud Open House”. Just remember, they’re developers – not professional presenters!
