Fusion Pointe Welcomes Newest Entrepreneur, Doors Open Connect
Updated: Jun 4
Please welcome our newest Entrepreneur in the Fusion Pointe Program, DeShawn Robinson, CEO and Founder of Doors Open Connect.
Who is DeShawn Robinson?
DeShawn Robinson moved to Florida in 2004 from Michigan. Initially, he fell in love with the Naples area and aspired to get into the real estate market before the market crash. He shifted his focus to the field of hospitality and management. Tourism is and has been a big and important integral part of the Naples and SWFL market. He accumulated a dense resume of over fourteen years in the hospitality and management industry. From a Luxury Beach Resort, Fine-Dining Restaurants, franchise restaurants, to operating and managing at a one of kind New Orleans themed restaurant in Fort Lauderdale.
DeShawn then decided to turn down promotions to move back to the Naples area to try his hand yet again in the real- estate market. Upon teaming up and working with investors and general contractors in their quest to renovate and flip homes in the Naples area, DeShawn discovered a burden to most busy agents, including himself. The burden of being stretched thin and the need of having to be in more places at once to stay on top of important listings, deals and clients.
What is Doors Open Connect?
Doors Open Connect is an App made by a realtor, for realtors.
"We keep the doors open, so your deals stay closing."
DeShawn (CEO Founder), Ricky Hass (Partner), Jorvy Noesi (Partner), and Jesse Login (Partner) wanted the focus of the app to unify and connect licenced real estate professionals with other licensed real estate professionals that are looking for opportunities for paid and lead generation services. DeShawn, through several brokerage transitions and further investigation of many others and speaking with other agents from within and outside brokerages, found they all had one thing in common. An unorganized and messy system that consisted of unwanted massive group messages and emails etc. all aimed at trying to find coverage and help. With the business model and platform technology, DeShawn and his team created with Doors Open Connect, it is their hope to help eliminate the stress of finding coverage and aimed at getting agents their most valuable, important and non -renewable resource back. Time.
While also simultaneously creating new opportunities for other agents and trained non- licensed agents, hosts and hostesses, who have time on their hands and are looking to drum up new leads. It is his and his teams’ vision to organize and connect real-estate professionals and help in all aspects of real- estate.The mutually beneficial app connects real estate agents in the Southwest Florida region and in other domestic markets to generate additional revenue, networking opportunities, and to enhance the real estate market as a whole.
"Doors Open Connect is a mobile app platform designed to unify and bring actively licensed real estate agents who are in need of being in more places at once and connecting them with other licensed real estate agents looking for lead generating opportunities and paid services on demand under one organized platform. Doors Open Connect is not affiliated with any one brokerage but is here instead to encourage Co-Broker relationships and multi-agency support and collaboration.
We are happy to partner with Fusion Point in hopes to expand our networks and align our business as we grow with like minded individuals. We seek mentorship, guidance and investment with those looking to grow and partner with us."
