Technology, New Trends and Real Estate: The Impact of Millennial Buyers in Real Estate

One of the main challenges that many real estate agents face these days is the growing demands on technology, new trends, and creative marketing. Innovation is an always-changing subject.

Pokémon Go popularity is a great example and the question that we are always asking ourselves is "How will the new craze impact real estate?". Treu Group Real Estate is committed to having the latest technology, the best tools and a team that can create innovative ideas and adapt to the fast paced changes out there. We are always ready for whatever comes next.
