Services for Real Estate Pros with casaGURU

More than 700 retailers crammed into the Direct Energy Centre at the CNE grounds in Toronto for 10 days of hustling, shopping and inspiration at the National Home Show. It was exhausting but exhilarating at the same time. So many people, so much to see!


The casaGURU team was out in full force spreading the gospel of the GURU. It was amazing how many people were used to having their head down to avoid sales pitches. However, as soon as they heard the word “FREE” they seemed to relax and stopped to listen. The look of surprise when they understood the basic principles and how easy it is (did I mentioned they balked at “FREE”?) was exciting. We engaged approximately 600 pros and around 8,000 homeowners (so many, in fact, that we ran out of our nifty postcards not once, but twice). Phew! I’m exhausted.


Another fun feature we had at our booth this year was a video camera to record people’s questions for experts (or their renovation horror stories). A lot of people were quite environmentally conscious and asking about solar products and energy efficiency. Keep an eye for those as well as the answers at casaGURU.com soon.


Celebrating the official launch of the site, casaGURU teamed up with MSN/Sympatico for a fabulous contest. You can enter for your chance to win a $3,500 home decorating package, $9,000 energy efficiency upgrade prize package or a $10,000 luxury kitchen appliance prize package. The contest runs through ’til March 30, which is swiftly approaching, so be sure to sign up without delay.
