For the first time ever, REALTOR.ca is opening a suite of its data sets. This planned event, called a hackathon, is meant to enhance REALTOR.ca, the No. 1 real estate website in Canada.
You might be wondering what a hackathon entails. Over a non-stop, 48-hour period, developers, UX designers, startups and entrepreneurs will be competing in teams to design, build and demo real-world REALTOR.ca enhancements that:
- provide simpler, smarter, faster ways for buyers to find the right home; and
- drive more meaningful connections between REALTORS® and consumers.
Part of being an industry leader is fostering a diverse ecosystem of innovative partners who are looking to build their businesses and add value to REALTOR.ca.
This open, collaborative and fun environment can bring a fresh perspective to business challenges, as well as give an outside-in view of products. The diversity of participants guarantees a multitude of perspectives and the time limit on hackathons creates a uniquely productive atmosphere.
“As Canada’s No. 1 real estate website, we will continue pushing the envelope of innovation. This hackathon is just one example of how we will continue to make sure REALTOR.ca is Canada’s answer for real estate,” said Patrick Pichette, Vice-President, REALTOR.ca.
Our goal is to inspire and discover the next generation of partners and product features, helping to maintain REALTOR.ca as the leading real estate platform for both REALTORS® and consumers.
The REALTOR.ca Hackathon is taking place in Ottawa from October 12 to 14.
