CHICAGO — May 14, 2019 — ShowingTime, the residential real estate industry’s leading showing management and market stats technology provider, announced today it opened its first office in Canada to support the rapid growth of its Canadian customer base.
More than 50,000 agents across Canada now use ShowingTime products and services, including over 4,950 agents at Right at Home Realty Inc. (RAH), Canada’s largest independently owned and operated real estate brokerage. RAH’s 10 offices went live April 10 with the 24/7/365 ShowingTime Appointment Center and its Live Connect offering in support of RAH’s goal to provide leading technologies to its agents.
“The demand from our growing client base throughout Canada has never been greater, and our new office will help us support our product lines to meet that demand,” said ShowingTime President Michael Lane. “We’re pleased to work with partners like Right at Home Realty, ORTIS, the Ottawa Real Estate Board, the Ontario Collective and others to offer showing management and market stats solutions to their agents and sellers.”
Right at Home President John Lusink said the company selected ShowingTime for its focus on technology and all-in-one approach to handling showing management and agent/client communications. Right at Home announced last month that it acquired Your Choice Realty, which opens two new markets – Ottawa and Barrie – and adds up to 450 salespeople and brokers to the company’s roster.
“We were using multiple vendors to help us schedule showings, deliver messages and communicate with our agent teams across our 10 offices in Ontario until we partnered with ShowingTime,” he said. “ShowingTime appointment specialists are available 24/7/365 to serve our agents and their sellers, which aligns perfectly with our focus on being the leading agent-centric brokerage in Canada.”
ShowingTime’s Canadian expansion has included the introduction of ShowingTime Live Connect, a feature of the ShowingTime Appointment Center and ShowingTime Front Desk that provides live call answering 24/7/365 with real-time messages delivered via text, push notification or email.
