FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - January 6, 2011) - Next One Interactive (OTCBB: NXOI) and RealBiz Media launched their unique real estate marketing platform "Connextions," at the National Association of Realtors national conference in New Orleans on November 4th, 2010.

"Connextions" is the only real estate marketing platform combining the power of the internet and television in a single automated marketing solution. This unique platform, creates media assets including pictures, virtual tours and videos to automatically syndicate and publish them to the largest real estate websites (Realtor.com, Trulia.com, etc.), social networking sites (Facebook.com, Youtube.com, etc.) and television.

As a result of the NAR launch, CENTURY 21 Scheetz, a leading Indianapolis brokerage, is one of the first to implement a full roll out of this one-of-a-kind real estate marketing solution to its five offices with several hundred agents, at the initial pricing of $35-$55 per month.

Patty Bender, General Manager of CENTURY 21 Scheetz, stated, "We at CENTURY 21 Scheetz are committed to finding proven innovations that can help our agents service their customers and grow their businesses. We see the RealBiz Media television syndication platform via Video On Demand as a simple and unique way for our agents to market their client's listings to a highly localized target market and expand their own exposure in the local market." 

Steve Marques, President, C.O.O of RealBiz Media, stated, "Our ability to ally ourselves with forward thinking leaders in the Real Estate industry like CENTURY 21 Scheetz, a 34 year leader in the Indianapolis Real Estate market, is critical to our mission of moving the industry forward with technology that will help both the Real Estate agents and the consumers they serve. We are thrilled at their willingness to adopt this new and unique way of marketing their listings to consumers and expanding the selling opportunities for their agents."
