It’s remarkable to think that less than two decades ago, the vast majority of consumers had never made an online purchase, while by the end of last year, e-commerce retail sales had reached $453.5 billion.

Right now, the real estate industry is in the midst of a similarly meteoric disruption, in that technology is changing the way we interact with clients.
