Wins W3 Award


The W3 Awards were announced today and was awarded a silver award, which is probably much more exciting to me than to you, but I thought I’d share it with you anyway. A Gold award went to Zillow, and then they have a “Best in Show” award, but that always goes to a new home development website with flash tours of the floorplans and stuff (they’ve never had a home search website win that award).

I feel good knowing that BlueRoof is the only local home-search site to win an award, and it’s always nice to get some recognition for your work and effort (and expense). is still very unfinished. We have a lot of cool ideas to make the site much better, but it’s expensive and time-consuming developing new ideas (especially the ones I have) so I’ll take it a step at a time. For now, thanks to the W3 organization for the award…

  1. Congratulations, you definitely deserved this award. Your site excels in real usefulness for home buyers. It is great to be able to use map based browsing of the MLS.

    Keep up the great work!

  2. Good job, Greg! I hope there is a BIG cash prize involved! You still hold the honor of being among the first dozen blogs in my feed reader. Now I can say “I knew you when”.
