Hi everyone, it’s Marvin Stone here for
Stewart on Real Estate. In this episode, we’ll talk technology from startups to
stalwarts to shutdowns. Lots of news to cover so let’s get started. OJO labs

property tours to a whole new level without requiring those bulky VR
headsets. Compass Anywhere now allows any agent to work from any office which is a
real benefit for many of the major metro areas. And Zillow made big news last
month by doubling down on the iBuyer model and just announced their new “Tour It Now” technology that will allow potential homebuyers to tour homes for
sale with an app – instead of an appointment or an agent. Of course this,
is only made possible with Internet of Things technology or “IoT” sensors in the
homes to capture the photos and detect movement. And it’s no secret that the
venture-backed world of real estate technology has become highly competitive. The latest to exit the space is Riley, the firm that sought to provide much
needed improvement in the area of lead qualification. Though tech has garnered
most of the headlines in the last couple of weeks,

RE/MAX agent scan now boost their business through exclusive access to the Partner
Agent program. Finally, have you seen Coldwell Banker’s new logo? Rismedia
