3D Virtual Real Estate Company

3D Virtual Real Estate Company – Realty and Reality

It’s a new day in the world of Real Estate and the uses of Technology. Discussions and the topic of a 3D Virtual Real Estate Office were only that in that past, just discussions!  Not anymore.  eXp Realty allowed us an exclusive “virtual tour” yesterday of their 100% Virtual Real Estate Brokerage.  While the concept may be new to many Brokers and managers in the Industry, it’s nothing new for the team and developers over at eXp.

Is this truly what the Real Estate Brokerage and Company’s will look like in the future? Here’s what this one looks like in a Virtual 3D environment today, and it’s fully functional and 100% operational!


A Virtual Real Estate Office brings an entirely different value to today’s “Tech Savvy” Real Estate Agent and Broker. The possibilities and benefits of this concept are limitless.  The cost of a brick and mortar office, the overhead, the management of staff and meetings, training, and collaboration can be daunting and expensive.  The time spent traveling with traffic, gas prices, daily interruptions, all while living in a world that is trying to go green may have just found a solution! 

This may very well be considered the new WEB 3.0, at least for the Real Estate Industry.

MLS Cloud – Network of Public MLS Sites

MLS Cloud – Is a HUGE Network of Public MLS Sites

Nearly every Real Estate Agent in the Country is part of a local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and in many cases, a member of multiple MLS systems for their geographic areas in which they are licensed to sell Real Estate.

Over 80% of Consumers are investigating and searching for homes on-line, and are likely to end up on an MLS site either via a search engine Keyword search, or by an option or link provided to them from a website or Blog article.

From the beginning of the search, to the end of the purchase and beyond, consumers just like you and me are constantly and continuously searching the web for items and information of value. MLSCloud brings both “items” and “information” of value.

MLSCloud has taken many of these MLS sites and combined them in a single site that hopes to Connect Consumers and REALTORS®.  There are currently over 611,745 Agents in the Cloud, and it’s growing everyday.  Agents use an animated Badge to promote their site.


If you’re in the Real Estate business or Industry and part of an MLS or have an association, be sure to check out MLSCloud to confirm that YOUR MLS is a part of this fast growing resource that is readily available to the buying and selling consumer.

There’s a likely chance that at some point during the online home search process, that Buyers and Sellers will come across MLSCloud.  It’s good to have eggs in multiple baskets especially for consumers on the “Year Round Easter Egg Hunt!”
