The Real Estate Cafe's mission is to help real estate consumers save money -- an estimated $30 billion annually according to McKinsey & Co. -- by harnessing the money-saving power of the internet.
Opened in 1995, the original Real Estate Cafe was the nation's first internet-based, walk-in housing information center. With 1,200 square feet of retail space, the original cafe was part bookstore, part cafe, part adult education center, and part real estate office.
After two years of pursuing dot.com dreams, which included a consulting assignment with the UN on our proposal to use real estate revenues to provide shelter subsidies for AIDS orphans, The Real Estate Cafe has mounted a successful comeback which has been highlighted by another industry first.
We are the first real estate company in the nation to enable consumers to access MLS listings from the convenience of their own cell phone. We call it our "Take-out Menu."
