Unprecedented Condo Sales in Montreal via FaceTime App

The pandemic have changed the course of the real estate market and what once thought as a global menace is now considered a blessing in disguise. Real estate agent Liza Kaufmann has sold worth millions of dollar properties remotely even before the pandemic started in the early part of 2020.  Miss Kaufmann could not believe that her record-breaking sales achievement is considered as the highest condo sale price ever made in the history of Quebec real estate. She owed her success to FaceTime and considered it as a vital tool in marketing. She believed that this market change will go on even after the COVID is over. On-site visits are no longer viable as buyers would prefer discussing online and make virtual tour.
