Update Provides Valuable Resources, Enhanced Connections and Opportunities to Make Money

ATLANTA – RealtyJoin, a free interactive social and business networking site for the real estate industry in the United States and Canada, announces the launch of version 2.0. This totally redesigned site does everything that the original version of RealtyJoin did, only better. The new, enhanced RealtyJoin website is a social marketplace for the entire real estate industry where individuals can connect, network and advertise potential opportunities.

RealtyJoin 2.0 is a more user-friendly integrated website that includes upgraded navigation, enhanced profiles, video options, online project bidding and the ability to add photos. Enhanced social networking capabilities provide every user with a personal blog and the ability to post status updates.

Started by real estate, technology and marketing experts, RealtyJoin is the first true social networking site for the entire real estate industry. The goal of the site is to solve problems, connect people and help participants make money. Launched in early 2010, the site has rapidly become the “go-to” place for those interested in building and enhancing their real estate business.

“We decided to start RealtyJoin because we saw that real estate investors, REALTORS®, tradespeople, home builders, designers and others were looking for good, Internet-based tools to help them network, find and advertise opportunities,” said Andy Heller, a veteran real estate investor and public speaker, as well as RealtyJoin co-founder. “Our site is a community for real estate agents, real estate investors, plumbers and electricians, stagers, home builders and anyone who believes that the free exchange of information will increase sales.”

Ilyce Glink, an award-winning, nationally syndicated columnist, blogger, bestselling author and radio talk show host recently joined the RealtyJoin team to oversee content strategy. Glink says she has been impressed with RealtyJoin’s ability to connect individuals and offer them the ability to share pertinent industry related content.

“In just a few short months, RealtyJoin proved there is a real need for a place where real estate investors and the companies they work with can connect and share information,” she said. A number of high profile real estate groups and associations are participating in RealtyJoin, including the Atlanta Board of Realtors®,, Southeast Valley Regional Association of Realtors®, and RIS Media.

RealtyJoin offers the real estate industry an opportunity to gain business traction by starting online conversations and relationship with buyers, sellers, architects, contractors, brokers, suppliers and other professionals.

The introductory level of RealtyJoin remains free. Premium and executive memberships will be available over the next several months for those seeking further upgrades and enhancements.
