  1. Dear Mr King,

    I am a very proud and enthusiastic user of point2 software. It is a great creation and
    I feel there is tremendous potential to earn revenue with this so easy to use software for Real Estate Professinals from India including Developers and Builders and Property managers.

    With most advertising and leads being generated over the net and with the exponential growth of this trend , I would wish Point2 set up India operations as there is no competitor to this service in India. To begin with an awareness campaign is much needed for the Indian Community to join into the world of P2A and this can be done in a very cost effective way over the Internet itself by placing a few Banner Ads on Indian Relty Portals which are being much used for Real Estate Business. I would be more than happy to see a few Banner Ads of Point 2 appearing on some leading Realty Portals such as http://magicbricks.com , Per Square Yard , 99Acres.com , http://www.realestateonline.in/ , http://expatriates.com . and many more.

    The real advantage of point2 comes when more agents use this for listing their properties and it evolves into a community with the powerful handshake feature which is the Real Ace Trump card of Point2 according to me.
    Rightnow Indian Realtors are simply adding their listings repeatedly on each and every classifieds website and portal offering Free Postings and surely they would love to understand that my merely wtining in one place on theeir very own p2a website it would syndicate over so many sites automaticaly and that too where it matters to get leads.

    Second very important issue I wish to communicate is the poor quality of p2a Standard agent sites on acount of not being able to easily work around to setting up and using all the feaures available. I wish to take up this task on behalf of Point2 in Pune , India by way of suggsting that you offer a system of Franchised and Authorised Trainers in the setting up and understanding of Point2 software for beginners and Computer novices. Rather than allowing junk sites to be collected in the Directory , Point2 should automatically eliminate sites setup and not used or listings not being added. If you see the Indian Agents Directory you will find over 60 percent empty p2a sites which should not have ny place in the homes.point2 directory at all.

    Only agents actively updating and using the software should be allowed to remain in the homes.point2 directory.

    With regards

    Thanks Pankaj, we really appreciate your comments. We are going to make changes to our directory to require a minimum performance index for participation. In the new year we will be in a better position to do work that will help people in other countries take advantage of the P2A platform.

    Hi,

    Dear Brendan and Pankaj….. Some more sites I have seen on internet that target Indian real estate market, these are http://magicbricks.typepad.com/ , http://www.indianrealtynews.com , http://www.inrnews.com , http://www.indianrealestateforum.com/
    All these sites are for information only…. They don’t sell or buy any property but you can find latest happening news on Indian property market form these sites

    I think these sites are the good resource to update yourself …. I have seen many of Indian real estate or point2 sites owner take the news from these sites and make it online in their sites…

    Why can’t we login to accounts on the East Coast during the hours of 4-5 EST? it happens nearly every business day. We have severla premium accounts and professional accounts, it seems access to the back office bandwidth is EXTREMELY low during these certain times of the day.

      IMO- I agree, Facebook has the most info on how people bvhaee socially. BUT, what about the way people browse/behave behind closed doors? It\’s kind of a scary thought that Google has eyes on that

    check things out. I like what I see so now i am following you.

    Look forward to looking into your web page for a
    second time.

  16. hum…. lol :p

  17. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  18. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all
    web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever
    before.

  19. Great article. I am experiencing a few of these issues
    as well..

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need
    some guidance from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.

    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

  24. This is the perfect site for anybody who hopes to understand this topic.
    You realize so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic which has been discussed for
    ages. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

  25. When people are sharing a good big laugh, they are in the moment of love,
    and truly in one with the higher Divine. You have probably heard of the great Law of Attraction before and how you
    attract into your life, people, circumstances and situations in proportion to the thoughts you entertain within your mind.
    If you are scoping the cause, and the vibration changes or disappears as
    speed is increased, you can eliminate RPM as the problem.
