On March 29, 2018 we made history with the Citrus Valley Association of Realtors who was the first organization to program an Amazon Alexa Skill for their conference which brings together over 600 Realtors in Southern California plus live-streamed participants out of state.

The Real Estate Revive Conference Skill is a custom programmed Alexa skill developed by Doug Devitre International, Inc. which showcases all of the questions you would want answers to all available by voice command on Amazon Alexa enabled devices.

Association Trends

Once you enable the skill you can say things like:

  • Who is Leigh Brown (conference co-emcee)
  • Who are the gold sponsors?
  • Where is happy hour

Try it out now for yourself.

Also, a big hit for at the Real Estate Revive Conference was that Alexa was the co-emcee for the event.  This meant we did special voice-overs for making announcements, introducing speakers, and thanking sponsors.  This helped the conference stay on time, avoid leaving key participants, out, and added an extra element that was congruent with the program.

As an extra bonus I delivered a program called Living in a Voice First World which covered:

  • Trends in Voice First movement
  • Smart Home Automation
  • Mistakes to Avoid
  • How to Program Amazon Alexa for Your Real Estate Brand

In a few weeks we will release the Doug Devitre Amazon Alexa skill which will kind of be like talking to me, except Alexa is far better looking.

When it becomes available (link will be updated), enable the Doug Devitre skill on your Alexa device, Ask Alexa to get Doug, and then watch speaker video.  If you have an Amazon Echo Show or Spot devices you can watch the video.  If you have the Amazon Echo or Dot devices you will be able to listen to the program.  The Doug Devitre skill is the first ever Amazon Alexa skill for professional speakers which offers a variety of useful tech tips, find out where I am speaking next, and schedule a meeting with me.  All activated by the sound of your own voice.
