Frequently, I do presentations for groups of brokers explaining how VOWs work, why they might want to build them for their firms, and what to expect of other VOWs in their marketplaces. I usually include screen shots from one or two VOWs as examples.
Periodically, I like to go out and find new VOWs to use as examples, to freshen things up. This time, I figured I’d ask brokers and VOW technology providers to toot their own horns.
If your brokerage firm has a knockout VOW, or your company builds knock-out VOWs for brokers, drop me a line with some URLs (and your permission for me to view the VOW(s) and use screen shots for presentations). I’ll let you know if I use your site as a model for other brokers.

Can you post links to examples of VOWs? I'm still struggling with the whole concept, and would like to see some in action. Thanks!
Yes, examples of what is out there would be good. Our MLS is working on the rules governing VOW use now, but I think the committee conceptions of what a VOW is vary from something out of Gibson's "Neuromancer" to an idx feed with a twist.
