We combine thought leadership, professional services and a customized SaaS platform- built with residential real estate agents, not just for them, executing the innovations they need to remain competitive and relevant to existing leads.

 

 

 

 

 

 

88% of home buyers want a response from their agent within 60 minutes. Only 30% of agents meet this de1mand. 45% of inquiries to an agent’s website go completely unanswered. 90% of Millennials, the fastest growing population of homebuyers today, used an agent to purchase a home and over 90% prefer to communicate via e-mail, 70% by texting.

As the number of agents continues to grow, so does their interest in utilizing new technology to improve efficiencies with their work. However, this interest in technology is often confused with a disinterest in learning new software. Agents overwhelmingly state that their biggest objections to existing SaaS software stem from their lack of focus on providing the tools they realistically need and that they are too complicated for them. Additionally, existing solutions mostly focus on lead acquisition alone, whereas Labrador Connect focuses on lead nurturing and relationship management.

The average real estate agent is a Baby Boom (Age: 57, Gender: Female) and is often a late adopter of technology. But this lack of experience with technology also poses problems when needing to meet the demands of consumers today in explaining high-tech features such as home automation.

Labrador Connect’s most competitive advantage is our unique approach, placing a holistic and complete focus on the user experience. This not only maximizes adoption rates– which increases top line revenues, but also improves efficiency, reducing bottom line expenses. Two of Labrador’s founders, Brian Riback and Joseph Gilkey, Jr. worked together at the Daily News, L.P. in New York. Despite a continuing decrease in print circulation, their team achieved a 75% net income increase from the previous fiscal year. This level of success is due to their approach, which starts with listening to end-users, uncovering their unique needs and individual proficiencies- then applying these findings when facilitating innovation.

Brian RibackI wake up every day with one intention; to generate new ideas that help you succeed at the mission. Which mission? Well, that changes every day, but there is one thing for certain- innovation can come from a lot of places…I thrive on finding it.

The catalyst of achieving missions stems from my passion for uncovering, simplifying, & empowering results to generate successful solutions. With Joe Gilkey, with whom I previously worked, we built 2 web-based systems leading resistant, late adopters to embrace the web and ultimately yielding a 75% net revenue increase from the previous fiscal year.
