Inman: Compass is launching virtual agent services to keep agents in biz DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsHome3D (2259): Compass has sold itself from the beginning as "the technology real estate brokerage" so this is in keeping with their branding.

Do you see any conspiracy against virtual tours in the following situation Wingman 7 4 monthscarloscardo (27): Wingman, Here's a point to add, FLOOR PLANS ARE IMPORTANT: I did a virtual tour and realized through the tour a dead spot in the master bathroom. IN one home they installed a smaller shower base and decided to frame in the shower wall around that, so there was an additional almost two feet of dead space inside a wall cavity that was easily knocked out to make the shower that much wider!

Inman: Is real estate 'essential'? That's open to debate DanSmigrod 3 4 monthsphotosintheround (43): Clearly a gray area when it comes to Matterport, photography, etc. Here in Colorado, Real Estate "transactions" are considered essential.
