Since taking majority ownership of the company, Robert has made major strides in turning SmartTouch® into a real estate industry leading digital marketing agency and software solution company.

  • Kicked‑off partnerships with leading homes builders and developers such as Blackburn Communities, Randolph Todd Development, and the Veramendi development in New Braunfels to create innovative and award‑winning marketing campaigns
  • Officially launched its homebuyer geofencing product, SmartTouch® Geo, in April of 2018

This year, making the list a second time and moving up to the 13th spot, we are ecstatic,” said Robert Cowes, President and CEO of SmartTouch® Interactive. “We really couldn’t be the company and the agency we are today without our clients who are dominating the real estate industry and the whole of the SmartTouch® team.”
