Startup tidbits: Smartsheet adds tracking, Estately adds SF, Pixsy adds INSP

There’s a flurry of startup momentum and deal announcements today, including:

– Bellevue-based Smartsheet’s announcing new real-time project tracking capabilities, so users of its online collaboration tools can “see who has done what on a project – and how much the project is actually progressing.” It’s a beta release and should be finalized by fall.

– Seattle real estate search site Estately’s continuing its assault on the West Coast, adding the San Francisco Bay Area market. It earlier added San Diego and Portland, giving it more than 160,000 listings. In the Bay Area, it teamed up with the four biggest multiple listing services, covering San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Fremont, Richmond and Santa Rosa.

– Pixsy, a private-label video and image search platform based in Seattle and San Francisco, is announcing a major partnership with InfoSpace. Pixsy will power InfoSpace video and image search in Europe, but the deal could lead to Pixsy providing the same services to InfoSpace in the U.S. as well, according to Pixsy Chief Executive Chase Norlin.

Norlin didn’t need much introduction to make the deal. He was a consultant at InfoSpace, working on its paid search business, when he started Pixsy with Microsoft veteran Richard Lerz. Norlin’s based in a San Francisco marketing office, while Lerz and 12 of Pixsy’s 15 employees are in Seattle.
