Real estate social network RESAAS Services (CNSX:RSS) has added IT industry expert Pierre Chadi to its advisory board.
Chadi is a senior executive with over 25 years of enterprise sales experience in the IT industry covering hardware, software, business solutions and professional consulting in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto.
More recently, he was Eastern Canada director of enterprise and public sales at Microsoft.
Over the past 15 years, RESAAS noted Chadi has served on many boards of directors and advisory boards in the technology sector, with a focus on growing enterprise sales and marketing presence.
"RESAAS, the social network for real estate, is pleased to be expanding its Advisory Board with the addition of Pierre Chadi," said chief technology officer, Tom Rossiter.
"As we continue our rapid growth, it is important for RESAAS to expand our already diverse Advisory Board to include someone like Pierre who brings a wealth of experience in enterprise sales. We know Pierre will add incredible knowledge and value to RESAAS, and I am sure will further our great relationship with Microsoft even more."
RESAAS is a social network for real estate professionals, mortgage specialists as well as home buyers and sellers.
Designed as a professional networking platform for North America's 3 million real estate professionals, RESAAS enables real-time updating of property listings as well as the ability to sync with social media sites such as Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Twitter.
Real-time updates are one aspect of what sets RESAAS part from sites such as the Canadian Real Estate Association's Multiple Listing Service (MLS) website, where it can take a number of days for new listings to appear.
In August, the company received early approval to include their Real Estate Q&A app in Microsoft's Window's 8 App Store.
