The News Funnel is a news aggregate resource for real estate professionals.
We gather trade news and information from trusted industry sources and then let users craft that information into a custom feed that is unique to their geographic market, industry segment and areas of interest.
For Real Estate professionals, The News Funnel saves time and reduces the deluge of emails flooding their inboxes on a daily basis. With real-time updates and the ability to follow specific companies, The News Funnel also keeps professionals armed with the information they need to be successful and stay ahead of the competition.
For PR and marketing professionals, The News Funnel offers direct access to a targeted vertical audience and a way to bypass the wire service-to-media food chain. Press releases, events and market research reports uploaded to The News Funnel are distributed directly into the funnels of real estate professionals who have registered on the site.
Backed by $2 million in new funding, The News Funnel currently operates in 17 primary markets: Boston, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Chicago, Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, Orlando, Miami, Seattle, Portland and Washington DC.
Headquartered in New York City, The News Funnel was founded in 2011 by Michael Beckerman, a 25-year veteran of the public relations and media industries, and the founder and chairman of Beckerman PR, an independently owned, full-service public relations agency.
