How Technology is Driving the Future of CRE

How Technology is Driving the Future of CRE

In the words of Daniel Holmes, Greater Toronto Area Executive Managing Director and Market Leader with Colliers Canada: “In the commercial real estate sector, technology is rapidly evolving as professionals focus on revolutionizing the current landscape. Our industry is primed for disruption, yet information is not always as accessible as we'd like. There have been major steps in embracing technology solutions, yet there is a major disconnect between interest and adoption. As the saying goes, technology transformation is a journey, not a purchase.”

In this episode of Colliers Talks, Dan speaks with two prominent experts at the forefront of tech disruption: Shelby Austin, CEO and co-founder of Arteria AI, a startup that is well on its way in creating a client-service offering for drafting, negotiating and reviewing contracts, and Dean Hopkins, COO of Oxford Properties Group, a leading commercial real estate investor, asset manager and builder of business teams that currently manages nearly $70 billion of assets across four continents.

Tune in as Dan, Dean and Shelby talk about the undeniable – and growing – role and impact of technology within CRE, covering topics from the accelerated digital transformation, to change management and successful implementation, to the war on tech talent.
