ProAPOD® - The Popular Real Estate Investment Software Turns Ten

Share Article

The Salem-based software company never expected to provide real estate investment software solutions to real estate agents and investors for ten years, let alone globally. But it has, and more.

ProAPOD® Real Estate Investment Software, developer of cash flow analysis solutions for agents and investors engaged in real estate investing, has just entered its tenth year as a leading investment software provider, though it was never expected by its founder.

ProAPOD® developer James Kobzeff, then an associate broker and apartment specialist with Prudential Real Estate Professionals in Salem, explains that he originally intended the software for his personal real estate business and officially released ProAPOD® in 2000 only after numerous real estate agents began requesting it.    

"Colleagues who saw my reports continually asked for my spreadsheet," Kobzeff says. "So I decided to develop ProAPOD® as an Excel® application that could be distributed and used by others. That's how it all started."

But Kobzeff admits that he never anticipated a market beyond the Salem area because he never fully expected ProAPOD® to be seen by anyone other than local agents and investors--which, of course, has not been the case due to the worldwide web and its power to expose the program to others in cyber-space.

Since its release in 2000, ProAPOD® has been featured in the "Cool Tools" section of REALTOR® Magazine May 2003, used in classrooms at Southwestern College in Kansas, preferred by numerous CCIM designees (a designation awarded by the Commercial Investment Real Estate Institute) along with a host of other real estate professionals and individual investors.

Today, ProAPOD® has customers throughout the United States and beyond, including Canada, China, Jordan, and South Africa.

"I never anticipated it", Kobzeff adds. "But numbers are numbers and real estate is real estate. So I guess I shouldn't be surprised that a real estate investment software program with the quality of ProAPOD can benefit any agent or real estate investor anywhere engaged in real estate investing. Still, I am in awe."
