How it works

It's a simple premise: your company's mission is to help real estate companies, agents or consumers. Realogy executives, brokers and agents are seeking solutions. Let's get to know each other.

To participate, you need to have big ideas and a killer product. We want to look forward with smart people. You'll come to our event, demo your innovation and share your vision. A panel of handpicked judges will ask you questions and give you feedback.

One company will be crowned the Realogy FWD Innovation Summit winner, and earn the top prize of $25,000. The winner of this year’s competition also will receive placement in the ZapStoreTM, an innovative app and service marketplace that launched in 2015 and is directly integrated within the Realogy Franchise Group’s proprietary Zap® platform for its affiliated brokers and sales professionals.
