Casalova, a real estate platform for prospective buyers and renters, is setting a new standard of service with its on-demand marketplace. House-hunters using Casalova are connecting with agents and receiving replies in less than 30 seconds, far surpassing the industry average of 15 hours.

“The real estate market in Canada is a $14 billion annual industry, yet it takes 15 hours – on average – for an agent to respond to client inquiries,” said Ray Jaff, Casalova co-founder and CEO. “We live in an on-demand world: from Uber and Airbnb to online banking and shopping, people expect a response the moment they’re looking for it. Our platform is eliminating a major service gap in real estate. People looking for a new home simply open our site, find a property they like and connect with a live agent nearby in under 30 seconds when they request more information or want to schedule a viewing.”

As a house-hunting tool, Casalova aggregates properties from across Canada into one simplified platform, providing detailed listing information, images and a quick link to message agents who are currently online. As of May 2018, more than $50 million in sales and rental transactions have closed on Casalova across Canada.
