What is Geek Estate?

Geek Estate is the pulse of real estate, delivered straight to your inbox. Our resources cover the most important topics in the industry, which help you become more informed and make better strategic decisions.

Who is Drew Meyers?

Drew was an early employee at Zillow, and has been covering proptech for over 15 years. Learn about the full history of Geek Estate and Meyers’ story.

Drew founded Geek Estate in 2007, with the guiding principle of: “By operator, for operator.”

How is Geek Estate different from other real estate publications?

Geek Estate takes a different approach: we're not a media company. We don’t accept sponsorships, ads, or paid posts. We will never give ourselves an incentive to publish more content simply to get more page views and clicks. There's no ulterior editorial motive or agenda driven by some other entity funding our staff. All articles posted are thorough with a focus on providing actionable insights in an objective lens. 

We rely on GEM Memberships as our only revenue stream. If you enjoy and value our work, please consider a paid GEM Subscription.

Do you offer any discounts for Educators or Students?

Yes! We want to inspire and educate future real estate and proptech innovators. If you are a current student or work in academia at any level, please email community [at]geekestate[dot]com with a link to your LinkedIn, and we will send you a coupon code for 50% off a yearly subscription.

Is GEM Crystal or GEM Diamond better for me?

GEM Crystal is our lower-cost, paid subscription tier, which delivers you our business intelligence and innovative thinking. All highly curated. Subscribers will receive six emails per month regularly, and a mix of others thrown in such as the Quarterly Earnings Radar.

Our most dedicated membership level: GEM Diamond is everything in our Crystal tier, plus access to curated events, the proptech roulette networking series, over 250 long-form essays from the archives, and a private forum.

How does the 30-day risk free trial work?

Register for a one-year annual paid plan, and you will receive your first month free. We require you to place a payment method on file to begin your membership and benefit from the first free month.

I’m interested in a group subscription for my company. Do you offer group discounts?

Yes! Please email Community [at]Geekestate[dot]com to share more about your company and your specific needs.

I work in PR as part of an in-house team or agency relationship. How can I pitch a story to you?

We welcome you to submit PR pitches for our review at community [at] geekestate [dot] com. As a leading publication in the industry, it is our responsibility to our community to stay informed on all relevant topics.

Please note that we are highly selective with PR pitch coverage, and we are especially selective with pieces that focus on a specific company or set of companies.

We prioritize and review pitches from PR members who are already part of our community. This means that either the PR representative or the founder(s) represented in the pitch are part of our paid Crystal or Diamond tiers. Our “Member News” section is part of our Weekly Radar and covers all relevant fundraising announcements, product announcements, partnerships, podcasts and other content related to our members.

Please note that many of the stories covered in our weekly Radar are news that we have sourced from other trusted outlets in the industry, which may have originated from a PR pitch. If you successfully place your story with another outlet and choose to pitch us, please note where you received coverage already so we can note it in our review process.

How can I contribute an article? 

Only members of the Geek Estate Team and GEM Diamond Members can create entries for our radars and transmissions. All entries are heavily vetted to ensure pieces are objective before posting. Please consider joining the GEM Diamond (above) if you are interested.

Diamond members can post to the Geek Estate Blog for any thought leadership/topical posts. No self-promotion.

Here is an example of a guest author who has published posts to the blog in the past:
