At CES 2018, the consumer electronics’ mega show in Las Vegas this week, I hung out with robots, tried out the latest VR headsets, and talked—yes, talked—to a host of appliances, from a bathroom mirror to a refrigerator. After scouring the show floor, I found several products this year that hold real potential to shake up the real estate market. In the video below, I outlined what I think is some of the best tech I saw at the show this year. But of course, my rankings are subjective so use the poll below to vote for your favorite!
Consumers are increasingly curious about smart home technology, and they’re turning to real estate agents as a vital resource for information. Forty-two percent of consumers recently surveyed say they would look to their real estate agent to provide suggestions about how staging their home with smart-home products could impact their sale, according to a new survey conducted by Coldwell Banker. The company presented their findings at the consumer electronics’ mega event, CES 2018, which is taking place in Las Vegas this week. Coldwell Banker is a sponsor of the Smart Home Marketplace at this year’s show.
“Our consumer findings underscore the need for industrywide smart-home education for real estate sales agents,” says Charlie Young, president and CEO of Coldwell Banker Real Estate.
Our interview with David Marine, senior vice president of marketing at Coldwell Banker, delves further into what real estate professionals can expect from buyers and sellers over the next few years:
Kelly was wonderful! She put in so much time and effort and made sure we were informed and comfortable! I can't thank her enough for the countless hours, nights, weekends and responding to our late night emails, thanks for being so wonderful in helping us find our dream home! -Lianne H.
Kelly Bierl was very helpful. She found me exactly what I wanted by listening to me telling her what I wanted. She fought for my needs and she was quick to contact me with any changes in my purchase. -bungeeshawn
My wife and I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone needing a profession realtor. Kelly is very personable, easy to talk to and was always available, returning our texts or calls in a very timely manner. If an answer was not readily available she went out of her way to find it. She knew how to find pertinent information on comparable values, taxes, flood zones etc. We felt she represented us and always had our best interest in mind. We are empty nesters and were looking for smaller, zero entry one level homes with little or no maintenance, she found us what we were looking for and did not waste our time with properties that did not meet most of our criteria. We could not be happier with our home selection or in working with Kelly and her team, made the whole process stress-less, and fun. -mmlm1953
Thank you Greg & Kelly so much for all of your time and energy you put into helping me find my perfect home! I really appreciate the nights, weekends, and most importantly the honesty.
