RE: iGUIDE Comes to Quinte View Real Estate Differently with iGUIDEQuinte
Quinte West, ON: Quinte West resident Adam Burr has brought the latest in real estate technology to the Quinte Region with his new business iGUIDEQuinte. Adam has an extensive background in advertising, marketing and public relations and spent the last five years selling real estate in the Quinte area so was very excited on how this technology can help those selling or buying a home. “I was looking for way to take my love of real estate and my passion for design to create a business,” said Burr. “While still working as a professional realtor I reached out to the developers of iGUIDE technology to find out if I could bring it to the Quinte area and soon created a business plan that is now iGUIDEQuinte.”
Since the launch of iGUIDEQuinte in January the business has shot 75 iGUIDE packages before the spring market even arrived and hopes to have 600 under its belt by years end. With his experience as a realtor and after serving two years on the Quinte and District Association of Realtors board of directors he is confident the Quinte market is ready for this. “Ninety-three per cent of real estate buyers look online before reaching out to a realtor and that makes the quality of the online listings crucially important in the buying and selling process,” said Burr.
The slogan for iGUIDEQuinte is “view real estate differently”. The meaning behind this is to have the Quinte area truly looked at differently when it comes to people relocating to our area. The members of the Quinte and District Association of Realtors do a great job of marketing and selling real estate in the area. iGUIDEQuinte offers iGuide technology to make their listings present in the best way possible. “It’s all a ripple effect,” said Quinte West Chamber of Commerce manager Suzanne Andrews. “The more homes sold, the more people we can attract to move here creates more customers for local business, creating a thriving local economy that is good for everyone.”
iGuide technology allows for Interactive Floor Plans; complete 360 degree views, accurate measurements, panoramic video, compass, custom image capture, photo gallery and neighbourhood maps. “We are providing agents with instant access to the property information,” says Kevin Klages, co-founder and CE0 of Kitchener, Ontario-based Planitar Property Technologies, the makers of iGuide. “A National Association of Realtors study showed that 88 per cent of buyers expect a response from their agent within an hour. iGuide provides agents with all the information they need, making them immediately responsive to clients. Or buyers have the tool to get all the information they need themselves, instantly.”
Adam loves where he lives and wants those around to see it the best way they can. He is very committed to the community and along with his involvement with Quinte and District Realtors also sat of the board for the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce, and is currently involved with Quinte Young Professionals, the Trenton Kiwanis Club and a volunteer fire fighter with the City of Quinte West.
