Verse, Inc. Ranks No. 894th on the 2017 Inc. 5000

It was a sincere honor and an exciting milestone to be recognized as the #6 Fastest Growing Company in San Diego.

During the celebration, in the midst of the confetti, flying corks, and break-dancing astronauts, someone suddenly shouted: “Wait! We just received an email from Inc 5000!”  

This year is their 36th annual Inc. 5000: The most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and mid-sized businesses.

Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Pandora, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

And, stacked up against thousands of competitors, we earned the 894th spot in the nation!  

To be recognized in any way by such nationally renowned powerhouse is an accomplishment that defies words, and we are so grateful!

The Tech Connection: Tools That Bring Agents and Buyers Together (Via Inman Connect)

This month,  I had the great honor of presenting Verse at Inman Connect in San Francisco to a group of 2,500+ of our industry’s brightest minds and thought leaders. I was able to share how Verse is shaping the way businesses communicate with their online consumers, and how we’re bringing back the human connection that has been eroded over time with human-replacing technologies.

Throughout the week, I connected with hundreds of people on a 1-on-1 basis and learned what brokers, teams, and agents need help with the most. Namely, they need help with engaging their potential clients quickly and following up. This is where they see the most waste and where Verse can step in to provide much needed back up, support, and help increase conversions.

Having been previously featured in Inman News, it was an honor to speak to their audience directly and share why we’re so passionate about what we do every single day!
