What a week in Inman Connect! Our team of three had an amazing conference with new connections, industry knowledge and lots of new ideas. We are confident that our forthcoming set of AI, computer vision and real estate data products will enable a total change in behavior – agents, brokers and end customers.
First, big hand for the organizers! Having ~4000 participants from all over the world needs Effort, making everything seamless and convenient for everyone. Also the speakers and topics were excellent, being the state-of-the-art everyone was looking for. This wasn’t the first time our folks attended Inman events, always worth traveling no matter the distance.
Some rollouts tell much on the industry future. The AR apps by REALTOR® and new Zillow APIs confirm some of our thoughts: technology-focused companies and providers seek integrations, agents and salespeople need new lead generation tools and attractive showcases. Homebuyers and renters look for more accurate search results and highly targeted information.
Comments on Virtual Flythrough
Last year we unveiled the Virtual Flythrough and ambitious plan to offer all Manhattan residential properties as virtual reality compatible models. Guess the best thing happened was one guy saying wow, excellent or great – 32 times -yes, we counted- during a four-minute demo. One per eight seconds! Can we also take the silence between as a yes?
There is a reason why it’s taken a while to write this recap: we’ve been busy doing pitches and demos to Manhattan agents and brokers. There is definitely something in the air…
Thanks again everyone, hope to see you soon!
