It's 6 pm. Do your real estate buyers and sellers know all you did for them today? With Quigler they will.

A powerful "GPS" for the buy/sell transaction that helps agents earn clients' trust and love.

Buying/Selling a home is one of the largest financial transactions anyone makes.


It's riddled with issues of transparency and compliance. Federal and state regulations associated with the transaction are complex. For example, California’s real estate laws are 842 pages of legalese.  Consumers buy/sell once every 9 years and have little idea what they or their agent is required to do.  Agents tend to “under-communicate,” sometimes leaving consumers wondering what is being done to earn their fee.  And lack of communication can lead to issues of trust, especially if a consumer feels left in the dark.    


Quigler offers the solution and it's free to consumers and available by monthly or yearly membership to agents.

For Consumers

Now you'll know everything your agent is required to do, in advance. You'll have total transaction transparency, immediate and documented communication, welcome compliance, and unprecedented accountability every time you buy or sell. Nice, eh?

 

For Agents

You'll have a revolutionary tool that automates communicating with clients (and relieves you of time-consuming 'update letters'). It keeps your clients always "in the know" while earning their trust and love. Plus, you can sleep well at night knowing that you have the Actions you must do, Step by Step, in the palm of your hand, 24/7. It's like having a mentor and coach guiding you through every transaction.

 

For Broker/Owners

Broker/owners can provide their agents an extraordinary client communication tool, all wrapped around a compliance checklist application, solving multiple problems with one app.

 

For Boards/Associations

A tool to raise professionalism, insert the Code of Ethics into 5M+ buy/sell transactions a year and satisfy consumers’ needs. 

What We've Done

  1. Extracted from federal law, state law and the Code of Ethics, the requirements that an agent and/or a consumer must do at each Step of the real estate transaction.
  2. Organized those requirements into a sequential, easy-to-follow 8-11 Step workflow of “Yes” or “No” checklist questions.  Did the agent/consumer do this? or that?  
  3. Send an immediate text or email notification to the consumer and the agent whenever an agent does what’s required, creating a time-stamped, dated, running record of what’s been done, when it was done and what remains to be done, never leaving a consumer “in the dark” and creating a compliance checklist file for the agent and their broker/owner.
  4. Quoted the exact citation from law or Code so agents and consumers know why each Action is required, the penalties for non-compliance, the forms necessary and provided “Pro Tips” on how best to implement the Action. 
  5. Presented it all via a web and IOS app so everyone has it all in the palm of their hand, 24/7. (Android coming)

Quigler transforms the buying/selling process into a quicker, more transparent and more enjoyable transaction for everyone.

Quigler was created by industry leaders and experts. It was chosen out of over 1000 applicants to be one of only eight 2018 portfolio companies of the National Association of REALTORS® REach Accelerator.

We’re providing a tool that raises the bar on the buy/sell real estate experience.

We Are Solving Important Problems

  • Complexity: Every year the buy/sell transaction gets more and more complex with an overlay of federal and state laws.  California has 20-30 required forms and almost 200 possible forms to fill out.
  • Compliance: Not only do laws require the agent’s compliance, many now require consumers to comply, too.  
  • Penalties: Can include legal action, fines and imprisonment.
  • Communication: 93% of consumers want agents to be “responsive” and “communicative” but only about 1% of agents provide Update Letters to clients. Lack of communication is a major complaint to broker/owners.
  • Opaque Transactions: Over 80% of first time buyers and over 60% of seasoned buyers are still perplexed by the opaque, complex transaction and want help.

What We Do

  • Quigler gives agents/consumers the requirements of federal/state law in an easy-to-follow checklist format right on their cell phone, 24/7, so everyone knows what to do and when. For agents it’s like having a mentor, guide or manager guiding them to do the right thing, always, Step by Step, Action by Action. In turn, Quigler gives the agent a tool to inform and guide their client throughout.
  • Quigler makes it easy for agents to provide consumers transaction transparency, 24/7. 
  • Quigler automates agent-to-client communication creating a running written record of what the agent did, when the agent did it and what remains to be done. It lifts the veil on the whole transaction process and keeps clients “in the know” not “in the dark."
  • Quigler simplifies complexity into easy-to-follow Steps and specific "yes' or "no"  Actions.
  • Quigler can reduce everyone’s stress and pain points.
  • Quigler helps agents provide unprecedented accountability to clients easily and quickly.
  • Quigler helps consumers know the demonstrable value their agent provides for the commission paid.
  • Quigler keeps everyone updated on law changes and new regulations. 

We think the world will be a better place if we help agents raise the bar and consumers find peace of mind in the real estate transaction process.

How it Works

We've created a revolutionary agent communication tool that dramatically improves communication with clients all wrapped around the industry's first and only compliance checklist application.


Federal and state laws require consumers and agents to comply with a complex list of rules and regulations. 


In order to be in compliance, agents and consumers are required to do certain actions throughout the transaction process. However, the legalese explaining what must be done is often long and complicated. So, we've extracted from federal and state laws what's required of agents and consumers and organized the requirements into specific To Do's, or as we call them, Actions, all under 8-10 easy-to-follow Steps.   And when checked off, Quigler becomes a revolutionary communication tool for agents, notifying consumers of what was done instantly, including the agent's compliance with the Code of Ethics. Isn't that nice to know?


This simple, transparent process brings peace of mind to both agents and consumers involved in the transaction.

David Michonski breaks down the Quigler App.

Quigler app users can learn why certain actions are required by clicking on the "Why?" tab and read the exact excerpt from the law or Code of Ethics.

The workflow is organized into a user-friendly experience with easy-to-follow steps:


  • Under each step, we list the specific required Action 
  • Each action has a corresponding "Yes" or "No" question, "Did you do X? Y? or Z?" 
  • When an agent (or a consumer) does a required Action, the consumer gets an instant text or email notification, time stamped and dated

This running record lets everyone keep track of progress. Agents and consumers are always on the same page about what must be done, when it was done, why it must be done, and what remains to be done.

INMAN NEWS Reports REALTOR fined $450 for marketing violation.

12 days ago

Such a fine would be impossible for any agent using Quigler.  The very FIRST Action in the FIRST Step in the Quigler transaction asks the agent if their signage is up to state law and the NAR CODE.  This is how Quigler helps agents always stay on the right track.

Ace Inman News reporter Marian McPherson (who initially wrote about Quigler when we first launched) and who covers these kinds of infractions,  noted that the NAR Code of Ethics "require[s] agents to clearly disclose brokerage associations in all advertising and licensure information on their webpage and other marketing platforms."  

An anonymous tipster reported how the cited agent was marketing themselves on Facebook  in violation of the Code and turned them in.  There are 1.3M agents who could also have turned him in. 

The agent cited for the infraction immediately changed the way it appeared and noted his brokerage affiliation as well as the proper licensure information, something QUIGLER does for all agents.   But he was out $450.  Paying Quigler $298/yr would have prevented that infraction and many others. A perfect example of how Quigler keeps agents on the right track and provides tremendous value.

Consumer Federation provides "scathing report" on agent transparency, but Quigler helps agents provide it.

14 days ago

Inman New, the real estate industry's online newspaper and conscience put out an article today by crack reporter Marian MacPherson that the "Consumer Federation of America has released another scathing report about the real estate industry, this time focusing on an alleged lack of transparency regarding agent commissions and commission splits."


She writes:  "Released on Monday, the report is based on a survey of 2,000 Americans, as well as conversations with 200 agents located in 20 metros and an analysis of 263 agent and broker websites across four markets."


And Inman News goes on to say: "According to the study, only 32 percent of Americans know an agent’s typical commission, which is anywhere from 5 to 6 percent of the sales price. Of the 453 respondents who’ve bought or sold a home within the past five years, only 44 percent knew the typical commission."


Stephen Brobeck, who wrote the scathing report for the Consumer Federation of America,  met with Quigler both at the NAR national meetings and Washington meetings and reviewed Quigler with rave compliments for doing something to revolutionize the transaction. In Inman's article, Brobeck said:


"consumers’ lack of awareness stems from brokers and agents lack of transparency about commissions and commission splits."


This would NEVER be possible if a consumer chose an agent on Quigler.  An entire Step in a typical Seller or Buyer transaction on Quigler is devoted to "Agency" and another to "Compensation."   Every consumer should be using an agent who provides them Quigler. If not, the consumer should go to www.Quigler.com and download it for themselves and then invite an agent to join them.  Quigler seeks agent who want to change the world of the consumers' transaction by providing to consumers unprecedented transparency, accountability and time-stamped and dated, written notifications and now an Update Letter every two weeks.

Quigler October 1 Monthly Update for Investors

about 1 month ago

Quigler Monthly Update October 1, 2019

81.5% of those taking Quigler's first CE courses "strongly agreed" or "agreed" that they got valuable information and would recommend them to a friend or colleague. WOW

Dear Friends:

Please refer to LAST month’s juicy update if you have not already read it. Everything I mentioned has continued through September. 

Dwain Scheck, our PR maven continues with Public Relations and getting our story out there. Our programmers have done terrific work with the net result that as of TODAY I feel we are two weeks from having “Quigler 2.0.” 2.0 has had tremendous upgrades both as to functionality and background to make for a smoother experience.

This is not to say that more upgrades are unnecessary. But today, after our weekly call, Linda and I looked at each other and said “Oh my God, we are two weeks from being there.” By “being there” we mean that we have all the functionality we need to go forward focusing on marketing. Literally dozens of bugs and fixes are now completed and the user experience is far improved.

Meanwhile, while the coders have been working underground and in the background, we have been revamping all our messaging in the foreground (see last month’s update) and our follow up email sequences for those who come onboard for a free trial. In addition, I spent 3 days in Nashville Tennessee at StoryBrand Marketing focusing on creating messaging that converts. It was a fruitful session and I came away with a long list of “to do’s” which our web person,Joseph Darnell, is implementing as I write this. In addition, all month Joseph worked with me to revamp our entire follow up campaign with new Tutorials,new emails and new sequences. Busy month.


Broker/Owner Enhancements: Finally, last month I focused on not just our messaging but also wrote you this:

“For the record, over the past two years we have talked with lots of broker/owners and we know what they want: (1) a demonstration of some agent adoption sothey don’t get too out in front of their agents, (2) the consumer agreeing in some form that in fact the agent did what they said they had done, (3) something to put into the transaction file that an agent can give their broker demonstrating what the agent did and that the consumer agreed it was done, time-stamped and dated, (4) the ability for the broker/owner to put ALL their agents onto Quiglerand for one of the broker’s managers to be able to pull up all agents daily and see where they are in each transaction, what Steps are done, and what remain to be done. It would be for broker/owners the ultimate management tool to assist them in an industry of independent contractors who most compare to trying ‘to herd cats.’ With such functionality in Quigler it has the potential to change the industry in a major way.”

Today, our coders told us 2 and 3 would be released THIS WEEK, for the first time giving us something that Broker/owners can sink their teeth into. Item 4 above will take $100,000 and a lot longer, but now we have the all important ability for a broker owner to get the consumer’s agreement that the agent did what they are supposed to do and thereby negotiate with Errors and Omission Insurance providers about their E & O insurance rates to get a “safe driver discount.” (see last month’s discussion about E & O insurers)

Of course, we have to market this and get the word out, but it is one of the final pieces of the Quigler platform and most of it is now live and the rest will be by the end of the week. Now, we can start a conversation with insurers about a safe driver discount for those who use Quigler.

Continuing Education Courses: Another significant event happened this past month. September is when agents re-started CE classes after the summer doldrums and we have had three classes with over 90 agents using Quigler for 3 hours. Guess what? 81.5% of the attendees “STRONGLY AGREED” or “AGREED”that they got something valuable to their business from the courses and the same number said they would recommend their friends and colleagues take the courses. This is another key metric and one we can boast to our current Board partners and to potential boards. Most agents thoroughly dislike CE classes and take them begrudgingly. Now, we have devised a course that over 80% really like.That is pretty amazing and again now our task is to get the message out there.

Finally, about CE, our goal was to have a course for 1.3M agents on just the Code because all 1.3M must take some course by December of 2020. Unfortunately,because we break the transaction into a Buyer and Seller transaction, our CE course cannot pass muster because it only deals with one side of the transaction and it must fit into a 3 hour segment. We cannot do both sides in 3 hours. We would need TWO three hour modules, something agents are not likely to sit for.

But.....good news. Linda and I spent two days reviewing every action in the Codeonly courses and have been able to combine them in a clever way. The result: we now have a 3 hour course that covers every aspect of the Buyer and Seller transaction plus requirements of the Code that do not involve a transaction.Barbara Fairfield is now getting that course approved in CT and in Florida with a goal of getting it approved in all states. That requires us to start training a cadre of instructors to provide the courses.

Consumer Notifications: One of the biggest upgrades in Quigler 2.0 are the consumer notifications. Now, not only does the consumer get a notification every time an agent does what is required, but now the consumer sees a“Completed” tab that they can hit and always see what their agent has done. In addition, the consumer is prompted to “Agree” to each action being done or click that they agree ALL are done. Also, the agent will now be able to export thisAgreed data to a clipboard and paste it into an Update Letter to give the client.Agents can put in a data range and up will pop every Action in the Quigler program that they have done for the consumer and everything the consumers agrees they have done.

For the first time, the broker and agent have a means of getting consumer agreement that what was supposed to be done, was in fact done, AND the consumer now gets incredible bi-weekly Update Letters. Remember 93% of consumers want responsive communication from their agent. With Quigler they get automatic text notifications PLUS an Update Letter every two weeks,something less than 1% of agent do. The agent just puts in a date range and we will then print out a letter with what the agent did which letter the agent can customize. In sum: we now have the bulk of what the Broker/Owners have wanted.

Still plenty of work, i.e. formatting it all into a marketing pitch and finding the marketing dollars to tell broker/owners what is out there for them.

But as a Broker owner they now have a tool that: (1) positions their firm as consumer friendly, (2) keeps their agents compliant, (3) serves as key training tool for new and all agents, (4) allows their agents to have automated Update Letters that provide an extra level of customer service never before possible, (5) and can get a record of the agent’s compliance to lower complaints and negotiate with E &O providers.

Finally, on a personal note, Linda and I will be leaving October 4 until the 14th tobe in Poland for the marriage of our daughter, Katherine Eva to Piotr Czeslaw Brzezinski. I will, of course, have my cell phone and email contact, but will be unable to focus much on advancing Quigler. Fortunately, the coders, Barbara,Joseph and Dwain will continue to push us forward.

Good wishes, David

Quigler shines transparency on real estate transactions

For longtime Stamford-based real estate agent David M. Michonski, the pursuit of homeownership is a noble odyssey.

“I think a home is the most important thing in most people’s lives and we are entrusted with that dream,” he stated. “It might be the first-time homebuyer’s dream. It might be the person who made his first million bucks and wants to make a statement. It might be the pregnant lady with three kids who needs more space. It might be segueing mom and dad into a better place to live.”

However, Michonski is less than sanguine in considering many of the professionals who are supposed to help potential buyers achieve the American Dream.

“People open themselves up to real estate agents and trust us with their secrets and their hopes,” he continued. “And it’s kind of embarrassing with what goes on out there. Out of 1.3 million agents, 500,000 haven’t done a deal in a year. They should be out of the business. Choice Home Warranty had a survey that found 67.5% of consumers say they do not trust real estate agents. No one in the industry wants to talk about that. And 72% of buyers and sellers under 44 say they don’t trust agents. The bar is so low.”

Michonski conferred with his wife Linda, herself a veteran real estate professional, on a possible solution that could keep real estate agents focused on the process of buying and selling property. One problem they recognized was the ephemeral nature of continuing education for real estate agents.

“Education is not going to work,” Michonski continued. “Throwing three hours every two years at somebody to learn the National Association of Realtors’ Code of Ethics doesn’t work.”

Michonski realized that consumers are often the last to know what is going on during this process.

“Twenty-five years ago, the industry gave the consumer transparency into the listing, but it never gave transparency into the transaction,” he added.

Michonski labored for four years on a digital solution, which resulted in Quigler, an app designed to ensure the real estate agent is following the federal and state regulations on residential property transactions while allowing the consumer to keep a respectful eye on how the process unfolds.

Quigler culls its data from federal and state law as well as the National Association of Realtors’ Code of Ethics and presents the requirements that an agent and/or consumer must follow along each step of the real estate transaction. These requirements are organized sequentially in a checklist that asks for a simple yes or no answer. A negative answer results in a stop sign icon flashing on the screen, thus calling the user to go back and properly address the requirement.

Upon the completion of each requirement, a text or email notification is sent to the consumer regarding the agent’s actions. All actions are time stamped and dated. For actions that remain incomplete, Quigler’s database offers a listing of potential regulatory penalties for noncompliance. For example, if the property was built before a certain year and was not examined for lead paint, Quigler details the fines that could be levied for failing to address the issue.

“This is the first time in history that the consumer knows everything their agent is required to do,” said Michonski. “We’re empowering the consumer to know.”

The National Association of Realtors offered financial backing to Quigler in 2018 through REach, the growth technology accelerator operated by its strategic investment subsidiary Second Century Ventures. In turn, Quigler leased the trade group’s code of ethics for use in the app.

Michonski has made two versions of Quigler available: a free version with only the National Association of Realtors’ Code of Ethics, which has been distributed to real estate boards across the country; and a full version with the code plus federal and state law, which is being sold in Connecticut, New York and Florida, with more states scheduled in the coming months.

“The goal is to raise the bar for the agents,” said Michonski. “We’re not giving them a test. We’re here to help them. New agents can take years to learn all of this. Now, they have this on their cellphone.”

New Tool for REALTORS® to Implement the Code in Daily Practice Gives Consumers More Transparency and Better Communication


New Tool for REALTORS® to Implement the Code in Daily Practice Gives Consumers More Transparency and Better Communication




Share This Post Now!






In May of 2018, NAR’s Leadership Team Report on Code of Ethics Enforcement recommended that NAR “should take an aggressive role in ensuring that the boards and state associations meet their obligation to enforce the Code of Ethics,” and even recommended publicizing “the charter revocation procedures that may be involved should boards fail to enforce the Code of Ethics.”

Pretty strong stuff.

But the recommendations came with no new ways to enforce the Code other than classroom/online training. The problem with classroom training is that what is learned is often lost quickly. Barbara Fairfield, a noted instructor with no less than 12 certifications and designations and who was inducted into the REBAC Hall of Fame, says, “statistically, within 30 days of taking a course, 80 percent to 90 percent is lost. And in the case of the Code course, the agent does not come back for two years.”

Fairfield is one of the founders of new application called Quigler to which NAR has licensed its Code of Ethics for “educational purposes.” Quigler, in turn, has created for REALTORS® a new app that makes it easier to learn the Code and insert it into their daily transaction process. It is available to all REALTORS® free of charge at www.Quigler.com/NARCODE.

Quigler tells the agent what the Code requires at each “Step” of a buy/sell transaction by extracting from the Code those actions applicable to the transaction. It then organizes those required actions into a sequential series of Steps, from “Pre-Listing Activities” to “Accepted Offer/Contract” (nine in all), with the required Actions under each Step as a checklist. Each action is a simple “yes” or “no” question (i.e., Did you do this? Did you do that?).

When an agent does what the Code requires, the agent checks a box and can have Quigler send an automated notification to the agent’s client, creating a running written record of what the agent has done to comply with the Code, all time-stamped and dated.

“With the app, a REALTOR® gets an additional form of automated communication to their client on top of what the REALTOR® normally provides,” says David Michonski, founder and CEO of Quigler.

“The app becomes a way for a REALTOR® to re-enforce and enhance their ethical online reputation,” he says.

The REALTOR® also gets a way to provide transaction transparency to their client while demonstrating their process knowledge, something 92 percent of consumers say they want since they only buy or sell once every nine years, according to NAR’s Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers.

NAR’s Profile also says that 97 percent of consumers want honesty and integrity from their agent. Now REALTORS® have an app to help demonstrate that honesty and integrity for them.

“Good agents are like swans gliding across a lake, making the whole process look as simple as possible. Meanwhile, they are paddling furiously under the water. Quigler is a third party informing consumers of the many actions agents do that consumers never see ‘under the water,'” says Fairfield.

By providing such communication, transparency and process knowledge, the agent’s reputation for trust can grow, and that can lead to a new biz-gen tool for agents using the application.

“We want REALTORS® to know that having a reputation for being ethical is one of the best biz-gen tools an agent can ever develop,” says Michonski.

The NAR CODE ONLY version of the app is free to agents at www.Quigler.com/NARCODE.

Quigler to launch full version in Florida August 21 at Florida REALTORS convention

4 months ago

Quigler's legal team has now finished  researching and creating the required Steps and Actions based upon Florida law. The full version of the Quigler app will now be launched for Florida REALTORS® at their state convention in Orlando on August 21.

With 178,000 agents, Florida has the second largest number of REALTORS® of any state in the U.S. after California.   With the addition of Florida to the roster of  states with federal law, state law and the NAR Code of Ethics Quigler has 266,451 agents to whom it can now market the full Quigler app for $298.   This amounts to 20% of the 1.3M agents in the U.S.

Quigler's legal team is now starting to focus on Texas with 119,000 agents with an anticipated launch date of September 15-30. 

David Michonski, CEO, said:  "Having our full product content for 20% of the REALTORS® in the U.S. is a major milestone for us and the addition of Texas by mid to late September will bring us to 385,450 or almost 30% of the REALTORS® in the U.S."

" We are happy to say that after years of research and work we have developed a proprietary system for extracting from state law the actions required of consumers and agents more quickly. We completed Florida in a record 2 months and look forward to doing the same in Texas and other states."

Quigler creates Continuing Ed course for all 1.3 M REALTORS

5 months ago

Now that the National Association of REALTORS has licensed its Code of Ethics to Quigler, Quigler has devised a Continuing Education course utilizing the app's platform for all 1.3M REALTORS that focuses on the NAR CODE ONLY version.   Starting now and for the next 18 months all REALTORS are required to take a 3 hour CE course on the NAR Code of Ethics.  Quigler's course is a revolutionary new way for the 1000 local Boards of REALTORS in the U.S. to deliver it because agents learn the Code in the way they think, transactionally, because Quigler's app informs the agent what the Code requires them to do at every step of a real estate transaction, serving as a mentor an guide for all agents and helping them be compliant and lessen the risk of complaints, fines and more. Here is how it works:

1.  Quigler gives the course to Continuing Education schools run by or used by the 1000 REALTOR boards in the U.S.

2.  The schools use the free course to obtain CE credit from each State and then teach the course utilizing the Quigler app. 

3.  The Boards offer the course to their members and receive "non-dues" revenue from  $25 to $40  per agent.

4.  Agents come to the classroom and are invited to download the Quigler app on their mobile devices and follow along with the Instructor who has it on the screen in the front.

 5.  WHen done, they leave the course with  the Quigler app on their mobile device and have received 3 hours of training on using it,  becoming comfortable and secure with it.

6. Quigler follows up with tutorials and emails benefits  to them. It then sells an upgrade for $99/year to have a Public Profile so consumers can find them,  or $298 for the complete Quigler content of guiding them through federal law and state law (currently CT and NYS only, but soon Florida and California)

What Quigler receives  is (1) entry into the mobile device of hundreds of thousands of  REALTORS over the next 18 months, (2) 3 hours of  free training for agents on how  to use the Quigler app,  (3) the contact information of the agents taking the course and the ability to market to them an upgrade. 

Millions of dollars and years of time in branding and marketing Quigler are saved and Quigler pays the Board a 10% royalty on any sales, thus providing the Boards an incentive to garner non-dues revenue while promoting Quigler.  The Boards have direct access to 100% of Quigler's customers and Quigler gets that access at no upfront cost.  We envision at least half of the 1.3M agents will opt for this course, resulting in having it on their mobile devices.

AMAZING reception to Quigler's NAR CODE APP at National Association of REALTORS mid year meetings

6 months ago
  • We announced to the Professional Standards Committee of the National Association of REALTORS our new Free NAR CODE application that sits on the Quigler platform.  It was an instant hit and we are still calculating all the positive effects. But here are some highlights.
  • Over 200 agents immediately came to our booth and signed up. 
  • 11 Boards of REALTORS asked to sign Co-Marketing Agreements with us. This now creates a national distribution system for Quigler among the 1000 local boards in the U.S.
  • Two State Presidents of REALTOR Associations said they wanted to lead the charge in helping gain adoption by local boards.
  • The Chairwoman of another state association's professional standards committee watched us demo Quigler and mesmerized and wants all associations in her state on board.
  • We now have a national product that can be used immediately by 1.2M REALTORS in the U.S.
  • We now have validation and are gaining traction with agents, broker/owners and boards and associations nationwide. 
  • The NAR CODE application helps all boards around the country to comply with their mandate to insert the code into transactions or risk losing their charter and our profit share arrangement with those who sign co-marketing agreements provide non-dues revenue.
  • The Continuing Education course that we are developing based upon the new NAR CODE app caused expressions of "Amazing!" "This is wonderful."  "I cannot believe this."  The excitement was palpable. 
  • Tomorrow we are doing our first Continuing Ed course in Connecticut and we now have 2 more scheduled and  3 in New York. Why is this important?  Because we now have instructors who will be using our app to deliver it. All the participants will download it and get a free 30 day trial and we get 3 hours of instruction (don't need more than 15 minutes) on the app, making people feel comfortable with it.  Our goal is to have a CE course delivered somewhere in the U.S. every day on average. With about 50 people in each course we can put through 20,000 agents a year who become experts on Quigler.
  • We had a half dozen instructors ask to be certified to teach the course using the Quigler app.

All this has been a long time in coming but now it has arrived.  To check out the new form of the application go to www.Quigler.com/NARCODE.    

Quigler announces FREE BASIC PLAN for 1.2M agents' "eyeballs"

7 months ago


Quigler  announced today a FREE BASIC PLAN version of the Quigler app focused only on the REALTORS® Code of Ethics. It is intended as a free member benefit for all 1.2M REALTORS® in the U.S. and in the 90 countries that use the National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics. 

Embracing the "freemium" model is intended to bring Quigler into focus for the 1.2M members from which Quigler hopes a percentage will upgrade to a paid version that includes not just the Code but also federal and state law and additional functionality upgrades.

Quigler will roll out the FREE BASIC PLAN at the National Association of REALTORS®' mid year business meetings and trade show in mid May in Washington, DC.

The 1000 local boards and associations to which the 1.2M REALTORS® belong will be able to offer the free version as a member benefit. 

The FREE BASIC PLAN focuses on Quigler being an agent's tool to earn consumers' trust. 97% of consumers say the most important quality they seek in an agent is honesty and trustworthiness.  Quigler helps agents to demonstrate their honesty and  trustworthiness by providing consumers with total transparency into the transaction process at every Step and instant,  automated and documented communication every time an agent does an action required by the Code.   Agents can now give consumers a running record of their compliance with the Code of Ethics.   

NAR is spending millions  on TV ads this spring to demonstrate that agents follow the Code.   

Now, agents will have a tool to demonstrate the same to each client during the transaction itself.

Just got word Start Up City Magazine, (also www.startupcity.com ) that Quigler has been named one of the "Top 15 Most Promising Prop Tech Startups for 2019" and will appear in the June 2019 issue of the magazine.   Whooopie!!

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT Just released to Quigler Investors

7 months ago

April 15 SPECIAL MID-MONTH UPDATE

To all Quigler investors:

As you know we update you on the first day of every month, but today we have an important and special update.

We are pleased to announce that Quigler and the National Association of REALTORS® {"NAR") have signed an agreement under which NAR licensed to Quigler use of its Code of Ethics for educational purposes.  NAR is one of the largest and most powerful trade associations in the United States and represents 1.2M REALTOR® members through about 1000 local associations and boards,

Coincidentally but very fortuitously, our tech team has worked for several months  to create a FREE BASIC PLAN ("FBP") of Quigler that covers the NAR Code only.  It will be ready shortly. 

The combination of these two events means that NAR and its 1000 local Boards and Associations will have a new and  free member service in the form of the FBP.  Now, all 1.2M REALTORS®  will be able to have a tool  in the palm of their hand (on their cell phone) at every step of their transaction that tells them what the Code requires them to do.  If the agent chooses, they can also have their consumer clients follow along and know what the agent has done, when they did it and what remains to be done, a revolution in agent/consumer engagement.

While we do not want to make too many "forward looking statements" as to the implications, the major initial goal is to have as many of the 1.2M  REALTOR® "eyeballs" directed at Quigler.  

Finally, Quigler is developing  a 3 hour Continuing Education course based on the NAR Code of Ethics. (We already have courses approved in CT and pending in NYS for ALL the content of Quigler, not just the Code).  Every local board and association has such Code courses, but none that are presented in the logical, sequential manner that  Quigler has configured, showing the agent what to do at each Step. The agent can simply  follow along on their cell phone or their computer and take the program home with them from the classroom for continued use free of charge.  It is a new way for agents to learn what to do and stay compliant with industry best practices.  

With all the above to offer, we will also be presenting  to local boards and REALTOR® associations the opportunity to sign Co-Marketing Agreements with with us.  The agreement calls for them to market use of the Free Basic Plan and the new Continuing Education courses in return for keeping any non-dues revenue derived from the courses plus a 10% profit share on any agent in their board who decides to upgrade to full Quigler membership.

With  these significant developments we are seeking investors both here on Start Engine and accredited investors to finish  out our Private Placement Offering  ($425,000 remaining) of $1.5M) to generate the funds to create a third product, an "enterprise solution" for Broker/Owners.    And while large investors have the benefit of the 25% tax credit, remember that small investors can invest via our Start Engine offering (see below), albeit without a tax credit but still with some very interesting "perks."  See our complete offering here.

Very, very exciting announcement with more to come.  David
