Durham Real Estate Agents Join New Comprehensive Online Search Platform: REW.CA

Real estate agents in Durham are now part of a new online platform that offers home buyers and sellers improved access to property listings in the region.

Durham, ON, September 20, 2018 – Real estate agents in Durham are now part of a new online platform that offers home buyers and sellers improved access to property listings in the region. Real Estate Wire (REW), one of the fastest-growing online real estate search platforms in Ontario, today announced it is working with in conjunction with the Durham Region Association of Realtors (DRAR) to provide local agents with marketing and other tools to help them better service their clients.

Real Estate Wire provides property listings and new home developments in British Columbia and Ontario. The partnership means local consumers have access to faster, smarter and more transparent searches. Visitors to REW.CA can search by city, neighbourhood, address, property features, square footage or even school district and have access to invaluable tools such as mortgage calculators, and recommendations of experienced agents.

“REW is thrilled to be working with DRAR to bring value to over 1,200 members and their clients.” says Alice Soon, Director of Industry Development, REW. "We have listened to consumers who are telling us they want a better, more transparent search option, and we’ve also heard from agents who want to be able to go the extra mile for their clients. Our role is to facilitate an online platform that fulfills the needs of both sides and creates a better overall experience."

“Our agents are excited to be part of such a comprehensive search platform. We share the same philosophy as REW, that an improved search means clients are making more informed decisions,” says Wendy Giroux, Executive Director, DRAR. “Working with REW gives DRAR members access to a rapidly growing online home-buying and selling audience while providing unique opportunities to build their business."

REW will be speaking to DRAR members in Oshawa on September 26, about how emerging technologies are changing the real estate industry.
