DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 12, 2013) - HousingWire's Real Estate Expo (REX), one of the nation's largest and most influential real estate events, announced today that it has partnered with RESAAS (CNSX: RSS) as a Platinum Sponsor for this year's event.

Under terms of an innovative new deal signed this week, attendees at REX 2013 will be given RESAAS profile pages and will be networked together into a private REX group to communicate and share information during the live event.

"We think this is the first time any real estate event has featured a preferred social networking partner, and it's going to be amazing to see how our attendees make use of this great tool," said Paul Jackson, CEO and Publisher at HousingWire. "It's important to us that REX do more than simply talk about how new technology is changing real estate, but that we're able to actually demonstrate positive change for our attendees."

RESAAS is the real estate network designed specifically for the real estate professional to connect and communicate in real-time. Known as real estate broadcasts, RESAAS' powerful reblasts engine automatically generates real estate workflow into invaluable social content that is instantly pushed out to both the RESAAS platform and other social networks.

"The very nature of an event such as the Real Estate Expo is an example of a real life social network," said Tom Rossiter, President of RESAAS. "A collection of people coming together and sharing a common interest; what better use for RESAAS' online social network for real estate professionals than in this setting."

REX is the only once-per-year, national real estate industry event produced by major trade media. This year will be HousingWire's 4th year hosting the real estate event.

RESAAS will be attending, exhibiting and socially powering the REX event in Fort Worth, Texas from June 2nd to 5th, 2013.
