Realivent CMA request Form on the Lab

Realivent LogoHas anyone found it odd that there is a CMA Request form on the lab?

I thought someone might ask me about it, but I haven’t had anyone inquire about it.

Yep, I’m running another experiment on this CMA Request Plugin from Realivant.

I like the results.

  • It is easy to install and Activate
  • Create a page (I suggest using the HTML editor)
  • Add <!–CMA Form–>
  • Save the Page
  • Options configuration
  • Test the page

In the options setup your email for notification, write an introduction, write a thank you note when the request is sent so they know it went through.

DON’T Forget to set up the email address. The plug-in will do you no good if you don’t have an email for the request to be received.

Test it. Fill out the form and submit it. I know this sounds like a no brainer but it is often an overlooked step.

There is an option for getting Zillow house values. Personally I still consider Zillow house values more a parlor game so I don’t want to encourage it. Zillow also provides sold data, that is reliable and if you want to try and run your own mini CMA you can look at what has sold around a home recently. At least the Zillow evaluation is an option.

I’ve mentioned the Realivent plug-ins before with a caveat. The code wasn’t W3C compliant and caused a lot of errors on the page. I worked on a couple of the early plug-ins to bring them into compliance. I’m happy to say they have done some great work and this plug-in is compliant. I’ve not tested any of the others on their site. I hope they have brought them all into W3C compliance.

If you haven’t been to the Realivent site check it out; they have a lot of great content and platforms.   The site and blog is filled with useful information and tools for RE Bloggers.


  1. Thank you for trying the plugins Dave!

  2. Ken,

    You are very welcome, Realivent is doing a great job and growing. I hope more RE bloggers find you in the future. I’ll keep getting the word out. Wish I had more time to test faster. Keep developing, your stuff is really good.

  3. Ken, are we able to download individual plugins or do we have to use your platform.

  4. Rich,

    There plugins work on other blogs. Like the Lab.

    The plugins aren’t easy to find. That is why in this post there is a direct link to the plugins page.

  5. Thanks Dave.

    Indeed when I tried to find them from the homepage, I was completely lost.

  6. I was looking for a plug-ins like that.
    Hopefully it will return the correct results.
    thanks for sharing!
