Voice-powered Real Estate Search Debuts in Canada

Voice-powered Real Estate Search Debuts in Canada

Better Homes and Gardens RE Signature Service debuts the first voice-powered real estate search in Canada.

For the first time, Canadians can ask their Alexa or Google Home assistant to help them search for their next home simply by saying: “Alexa, open Real Estate,” “Alexa, open Mississauga Real Estate,” “Hey, Google talk to Mississauga Real Estate,” or “Hey, Google, talk to Real Estate.” Their favourite home personal assistant will then engage them in a conversation, guiding them through important questions such as where they want to live, their budget and the features they want their home to have.

“This is the next evolution of home search using voice activation, and we are proud to be the first to provide this service to homebuyers in Canada,” said Nelson and Maria Goulart, Broker/Owners of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Signature Service in Mississauga, Ont.

“Real Estate and Mississauga Real Estate give potential homebuyers a quick and convenient tool for simplifying the search for their next home,” Nelson Goulart said. “Now, you can ask Alexa or Google Home to find your next home while you are cooking dinner or sitting on your couch. It’s a hands-free experience and easy to use.”

Real Estate and Mississauga Real Estate are free for consumers to use on their Amazon Alexa or Google Home personal assistant devices. Users can make a cursory search based on just a few parameters or search based on several detailed home features. Amazon or Google Home will describe the first three matches and then send an email with a link to all the homes matching the search criteria.

“Voice-powered real estate search also benefits home sellers as their homes will gain more exposure to the larger market as potential buyers use their Amazon and Google personal assistants to find their next home,” said Goulart.

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Signature Services partnered with U.S.-based Voiceter Pro to bring this cutting-edge technology to market in Canada.

“Nelson is the technology leader in his market and an industry visionary,” said Miguel Berger, co-founder of Voiceter Pro and a veteran real estate broker. “He understands the future of this business and is providing the right tools at the right time for both consumers and the real estate professionals affiliated with his brokerage,” Berger added that the skills also incorporate marketing and lead capture tools to enhance the business success of Brokers of Record and their agents.
