Real estate platform for buyers and renters, Casalova is upping its standard of service with its new on-demand marketplace. Prospective rents and buyers can connect with agents and receive replies in under 30 seconds, surpassing the industry average of 15 hours.
"The real estate market in Canada is a $14 billion annual industry, yet it takes 15 hours – on average – for an agent to respond to client inquiries. We live in an on-demand world: from Uber and Airbnb to online banking and shopping, people expect a response the moment they're looking for it," said Ray Jaff, CEO and co-founder of Casalova. "Our platform is eliminating a major service gap in real estate. People looking for a new home simply open our site, find a property they like, and connect with a live agent nearby in under 30 seconds when they request more information or want to schedule a viewing."
As a house-hunting tool, Casalova aggregates properties from across Canada into one simplified platform, providing detailed listing information, images, and a quick link to message agents who are currently online. In under 30 seconds, an agent will reply to interested clients, either providing more information or confirming a viewing appointment.
Casalova is now considered Canada's largest real estate marketplace with listings from various channels including the MLS, Royal LePage, RE/MAX, and all other major brokerages. Casalova's offerings are its secret weapon when competing for business from buyers and renters in the Canadian real estate market. Users can find the best properties available and with 30-second agent replies. Home buyers and renters are submitting and viewing offers faster than the competition. As of this month, over $50 million in sales and rental transactions have been made across Canada through this powerhouse of a platform.
