The Grand Opening of a Grand Concept

It's hard to capture video...of a live TV...especially with a room full of people who are celebrating a Grand Opening Event…so bear with the sound and image to focus on what is so grand! 

Hope Drake, Agent Services Coordinator for Coldwell Banker Triad, Realtors Burlington office shares with us as we celebrate the grand opening of our new real estate office and new office concept-cafe style. But we aren’t talking food- more like a computer café with cushy chairs and lots of electronic toys. Walking into this “Mac’ed” out (yes, pun intended) techie yet cozy real estate office encourages a consumer to be right at home- just laze into a chair, enjoy some coffee and search for a house as you would at home.

Well, almost as you would at home…unless you have the customized search software implemented by Jan Sherman, CBTR IT Director at your disposal. Within a few clicks you feel as though you have gotten a crash course about Burlington and its surroundings. Consumers can search for anything from concert schedules, movie times, and helpful “how to” videos to oh, yes, homes-priced as low as $5,000 to as high as Bill Gates Money (I’m serious!). These results display nicely on either of the huge state-of-the art flat screen TVs. Although I can imagine if the office is busy enough that day, the daily news showcased on the 3rd flat screen can be replaced with more real estate related searches. I digress – you just have to visit this brainchild that Beverly Godfrey, President and CEO of CBTR has been developing for quite some time.

"Cake Pops" well done by Lisa Flynt, Burlington CBTR agent.
Too creative (and yummy) not to share!
