It’s Crunch Time!

“Real estate is one of those industries that has been rather slow on the uptake of technology…but Verse hopes to change all that”

This sentiment has always fueled our drive for success. In the internet age of web leads, the real estate industry has become both impersonal and inefficient. An increase in lead volume and generation is offset by a disconnect in agent/client relationship, as well as proper vetting of each lead. Through a seamless combination of human connection and cutting-edge technology, we hope to improve the lives/success of real estate agents.

So we’re excited for those efforts to be recognized in a great feature by none other than TechCrunch!

Authored by Jordan Crook, this piece delves into the finer aspects of Verse: our mission to engage, qualify, and convert all web leads, and the showing of support and faith we’ve received in the form of 4.5 million we closed during our funding round! Click here to find out more.

I guess you could say we’re crunching it!

Verse featured in Inman News!

We’re excited to announce that we’ve been featured in Inman! As a leading source of information for all things real estate, it’s an honor to be spotlighted for our efforts to change the industry for the better.

Most online leads are dead ends, so cutting through the noise to identify the keepers can be a real hassle. Enter Verse”- Teke Wiggin, Inman Staff Writer

The propelling force behind our growth and success is the desire to improve the lives of real estate agents. In a world of cold web leads, agents aren’t able to respond to their leads quickly and effectively to convert them into qualified hot prospects. Agents are 21X more likely to convert a cold lead into a client if they engage them within 5 min.  Verse makes sure they do just that, by giving every agent the power of having their own inside sales team.

Agents who use Verse are seeing a 300% increase in conversion rates!

Verse Concierges are trained to ask all of the right questions, and are trained to be the best ISAs in the business. But what happens to all of those great leads agent’s don’t want?  Sometimes because of low price points or location?  Agents are used to ignoring and throwing away leads they don’t want or can’t handle.  Well we have a saying here.  Don’t trash it.  Cash it.  So we give agents the opportunity to monetize unwanted leads, allowing them to refer them to one of the 30,000 agents within our referral network and make a 25% referral fee.

Following an exciting round of funding, we aim to become even more effective at boosting the success of our agents!   Check out the article below to find out more.

Honored to be awarded San Diego’s Most Admired CEO

For the second year in a row, I’ve been nominated and a finalist as San Diego’s Most Admired CEO, a highly coveted award presented by the San Diego Business Journal:

It is the honor of my life to lead such a hard working, passionate, fun, and loving group of people, and to have their trust to guide the ship. We have ambitious plans, and the wind isn’t always behind our back, but the reason I am able to set the sails and continue pushing toward our goals is only made possible by the talented, smart, and thoughtful people who are on board with me.

In the past 2 years we’ve grown from 8 people to over 50. What has amazed me most throughout this rapid growth is how close our group is. We call it our Agentolofamily.  Nothing makes me happier than to see Facebook posts of our team members hanging out after hours, and even traveling together as friends.

Our team even looks forward to Mondays! (yes, you read that right). On Friday, we’re shouting “Only 3 more days!” at the office. I’ve never had more fun and been more proud of our team, and I thank them for this award and for allowing me the great honor to lead them.

With gratitude,

David Tal
CEO, Verse, Inc.
