Zoocasa teams up with Canada’s legendary Humble & Fred radio duo
This week Zoocasa, Canada’s premier place to get matched with the best real estate agent, teamed up with Humble & Fred, Canada’s national morning show as an official sponsor.
Zoocasa’s Marketing Manager Melissa Scheglov visited the legendary radio duo at their lovely downtown Etobicoke studio to announce the big news. Melissa held her own, answering dozens of questions about Zoocasa and real estate – and may have even fended off a date from Humble Howard but we’re… not… quite… sure.
“I think the key ingredient for what you guys do is you vet the real estate agents for me,” Howard said.
Fred agreed: “I wouldn’t know where to begin. You get those agents, they leave the flyers in your front door or they mail you a little pad or something, and over time, ‘oh I recognize that guy,’ … but only because his face is everywhere. But that’s not telling me the kind of agent he is necessarily.”
Melissa explained that 80% of homeowners find their agent through referrals from family and friends but half aren’t confident they have the right one working for them.
“It’s the biggest transaction in your life,” Melissa said. “Zoocasa exists to fix that. We find the agent that specializes in what you need, someone you’ll like working with, so you have a positive real estate experience.”
She also explained to Humble & Fred about the Zoocasa rebate – cash back in the thousands of dollars when you buy or sell a home. Humble calculated his Zoocasa rebate on a $99 million home – but as amazing as Zoocasa Preferred Agents are, we’re not expecting them to make any sales that big anytime soon. (Sorry, Humble.)
