We started developing the software and getting access to data in 2009. We introduced the site in January 2010.
We saw an opportunity to build a great business premised on providing consumers with a better way to explore, buy and sell real estate. We sensed that consumers would appreciate having a single, comprehensive, easy-to-use map-based system to access property and listing information. We were right, but it's not been easy or cheap to do what we do. We're up for the challenge, in it for the long haul and inspired by the phenomenal consumer response to ViewPoint.ca.
We provide consumers the 'best-of-both-worlds' - a market-leading online experience to explore real estate then professional service from licensed agents when they're ready to list or buy a property.
We're completely self-contained technologically. We design, write and manage all the software that runs ViewPoint.ca including our own in-house data center, which can run for weeks without power.
Our team includes eight licensed agents and a broker, two software developers, a designer and photographer, an accountant, an administrator and a leadership/business development team.
We're obsessed over giving consumers better tools and information to enable them to buy and sell real estate more efficiently.
Although we're based in Bedford, our site provides information on all properties and listings across Nova Scotia. We're actually licensed as a brokerage in a number of other provinces but unfortunately we're yet not able to offer ViewPoint in these provinces because real estate boards and other data suppliers want to restrict you from having convenient access to property and listing data. It seems they want to force you to call a real estate agent.
