Sotheby’s International Realty Canada recently launched new digital business cards exclusively for its real estate agents and brokers.

“Identifying the changing needs of the industry and our agents, developing and investing in the necessary proprietary technology is part of our commitment to providing Sotheby’s International Realty Canada agents with unrivaled global marketing and business solutions,” says Don Kotrick, President and CEO. “The development of digital business cards was born out of the need for contactless and more efficient communication and service. In an industry where building relationships is important to business success, we’ve extended this idea of “contactless” to networking. »
