The Times-Picayune (New Orleans, LA)
Think Geek Squad meets The Property Brothers. At the National Association of Realtors® iOi Summit last month in Miami, innovators, futurists, investors, and real estate professionals got together to chat like chatbots about PropTech. That's the hip insider term for "property technology." You are going to be so cool when you finish reading this, so stay with me. Just as technology has changed the way we shop, go places, communicate, and heat our hot tubs, it is also upending the way we buy and sell houses. NAR's director of emerging technology Dan Weisman kindly agreed to tell me about the meeting's biggest takeaways, minus the geek speak. Here's how that non-artificial chat went.
