NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ShelterZoom, creator of the first blockchain-based, real estate purchase and rental deal platform, today announced it has added more than 90 new affiliate partners globally since August and filed for two new blockchain-related patents. This high level of activity comes just ahead of the company’s major November announcement about its next-generation platform for buying, selling and renting real estate in a way that has never been available previously.
Among the new affiliate partners are notable firms Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Professional Realty in Ohio, Luxe Real Estate Group in Arizona and I Am Big Boss Pte Ltd. in Singapore. The recent expansion extends the company’s reach into nearly every U.S. state while doubling its international presence.
“The real estate industry is massive and slow-moving, especially with regard to technology,” said Edward (Ted) Borlenghi, realtor and architectural designer at Pacific Sotheby's International Realty in the Greater San Diego area. “From my standpoint, ShelterZoom is the right company with the right platform at the right time. They have addressed the major pain points suffered by real estate professionals and consumers alike – security, transparency and efficiency among them – in a truly innovative way.”
“ShelterZoom has completely reinvented the real estate game,” said Yann Yang, Founder of I Am Big Boss Pte Ltd. in Singapore. “They have created a technology platform like none that I have seen in real estate and made it simple for my firm to get up and running as an affiliate.”
Real estate firms continue to look for technology solutions to improve the way they do business. While many industries have made the transition to modern technology platforms like the cloud, augmented/virtual reality and blockchain, the majority of the real estate firms have stuck to their legacy products and paper-intensive processes. The increasing rate of affiliate signups is due to word getting out about ShelterZoom’s real-time, multi-party real estate platform that uses blockchain to make buying, selling and renting property more transparent, efficient, secure and profitable.
Two new patents filed ahead of major announcement
The company successfully filed two new patents in September as part of the preparation for significantly extending the capabilities of its platform. The patents will help build ShelterZoom’s vision of a blockchain-powered real estate ecosystem for property buying, selling and renting. This is all leading up to a major announcement planned for November that will detail the next generation of ShelterZoom’s platform.
“We can’t wait to announce what we have in store with our platform,” said Chao Cheng-Shorland, CEO and co-founder of ShelterZoom. “What we are now developing for our real estate affiliates and consumers around the world is a revolutionary new way to buy, sell and rent. Stay tuned!”
Named the Best Emerging Technology 2018 by SIIA CODiE, ShelterZoom was recognized as “the most innovative, high-impact product in the market.” ShelterZoom is ushering in a new era by serving as a Virtual Negotiation Room that manages all aspects of the real estate deal process using blockchain technology. Unlike traditional methods, only ShelterZoom’s next-generation blockchain platform records every action in real time, delivering a new level of transparency, efficiency and trust to property buying and renting.
