VibeAgent - C'ville's own hotel search site

Okay, so it's not mortgage or real estate related, but you have to admit it's cool. And their employees need to live somewhere, right?

Hotel search site shows there's room in the city (Daily Progress, 08/16)

Interesting concept, too - an impressive search tool combined w/ social networking. But I'm still curious about how they make money.
From a press release: "Serving as a consumer’s best advocate,’s search results are completely unbiased and influenced only by personal preferences and the reviews of compatible travelers. Unlike other hotel sites, does not accept advertising or partnership agreements that might influence the order of a hotel search, ensuring travelers get the best possible results."

It's exciting to consider what kind of impact VibeAgent could have on our area. Could you imagine Charlottesville as the Silicon Valley of the South?
