February Real Estate Tech Meetup

News, Real Estate Channel, Vancouver

We attended the Vancouver Real Estate Tech Meetup held by Ubertor founders Michael Stephenson and Stephen Jagger held at Ceilis Irish Pub on Smithe Street. It is a great opportunity for realtors to talk with technology-based service providers about the real estate industry.

Leon Ng and his team from the Real Estate Channel gave a talk on the power of video. Leon used a few examples from YouTube and spoke about the viral nature of video and social networking websites.

Dara Sklar of Realty Support also did a website review for Adriaan Schipper of RE/Max Crest Westside. Dara is truly an expert in the Ubertor software. Her assessment looks for opportunites to improve ones website by adding one or more of the porwerful, but often overlooked features of Ubertor sites. She also suggests ways to improve the written content as well, resulting in better search engine results.

My favourite part of the night is the meet and greet at the end of the night. I had a chance to speak with MJ Ankenman of RE/Max Masters Realty. She just posted her inaugural episode of “Chat Realty”. In her first videocast, she interviews Ron Sowden of Dekora. I like the concept and hope she keeps it up!

I also spoke with William Urrea, Vice President of Sales for iSign Media. You may have seen their vertical screens at various locations around the city. They offer a very compelling product and another avenue for advertising for realtors here in Vancouver.

Sound interesting? See you at the March Real Estate Tech Meetup.
