"We are excited for GlobeWest to market their Destiny project in an innovative new way using RESAAS as their platform," said president of the social networking platform for real estate professionals, Tom Rossiter. "Bringing their extensive pool of real estate agents together online is a great way to showcase the remaining units for sale, and use the power of social networking to increase transactions."
The Destiny project is a development of low-rise condos, nestled in the woods at the base of Mount Seymour in North Vancouver, British Columbia.
According to RESAAS' statement, this is the first time a real estate project marketing company has setup a group onRESAAS, with Greg Lowe of GlobeWest cited in the release as saying he was excited to market the remaining listings for sale at the Destiny development (http://www.ravenwoods.com/GT).
Under the terms of the deal, 650 real estate agents and realtors that work with GlobeWest will be connected into a private Destiny group, allowing for listing information to be promoted, shared and engaged with in an online community setting.
RESAAS, whose social network is designed to allow real-time updating of property listings as well as the ability to sync with social media sites such as Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Twitter, is growing steadfast in its popularity, continually adding broker after broker to its platform across the U.S. and Canada. Known as real estate broadcasts, RESAAS' reblasts engine automatically generates all of an agency's real estate workflow into social content that is instantly pushed out to the RESAAS platform and other social networks. Last month, the company said it planned to raise $2 million to meet with demand and expand its platform into Europe.
