HighNote founder Mark Choey has just returned from Inman Connect Las Vegas, a three-day event where real estate professionals and tech entrepreneurs gathered to network and learn about the latest industry trends. 

One of Mark’s key takeaways from the event was learning that real estate agents continue to be completely overwhelmed in this hot market, and that tech platforms can be extremely beneficial in making their jobs easier. 

“In a traditional real estate transaction, it takes 152 actions to close a deal. Automation and data can help alleviate many of those tasks while still keeping the experience personal and customized for the client.” 

That’s what today’s tech start-ups should be focused on, all while supporting agents to do what they do best – to act as a trusted advisor, negotiate deals, and support their clients. 

However, real estate agents shouldn’t be worried about being replaced with automation. In fact, HomeLight CEO Drew Uher said at the event that agents “aren’t going anywhere.”

The event also focused on a number of platforms which are helping traditional buyers transform into cash buyers, in turn making their offers more attractive to sellers. In addition to HomeLight, those platforms include Homeward, FlyHomes, and Ribbon.

This is an exciting time for real estate. It was great to connect in-person with existing HighNote users, as well as introduce agents to the platform for the very first time.

Having so many movers and shakers in one place was a great way to get fired up about what’s to come! 

The HighNote team can’t wait until Inman Connect 2022!
