Connecting both personally and professionally is key as we continue to work and live in these challenging and uncharted times. REALM™ takes high-powered global networking to a new level by marrying patented technology and personal connections to luxury real estate brokers through its proprietary platform.
REALM was founded in 2019 by Julie Faupel, owner of Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates, a past winner of Christie’s International Real Estate Affiliate of the Year award. REALM is a fully vetted membership-based global luxury platform-based community. “Top brokers are always looking to how they can add value for their clients, especially today,” Faupel, REALM’S CEO explains. Today there are over 200 REALM members representing almost 15,000 clients.
Working with a team of global real estate and technology leaders, investors, and visionary futurists, Faupel asked Silicon Valley engineers to create, unique curated luxury lifestyle software. The result—a platform that uses Artificial Intelligence which aggregates and secures data allowing members to share and match listings to client lifestyles. with the highest degree of security and privacy. “Customizable content is a key aspect of the value of membership in REALM. Each story will be sharable,” says Faupel.
REALM is the first-ever collaborative, lifestyle-matching venture in real estate thanks to the power of data. Personal connections through REALM’s technology are powerful. REALM founding partner, Gary Gold of Hilton & Hyland, recently sold Chartwell, California’s most expensive home, listed at $198 million in Bel-Air. “To be able to manage all the opportunities we have is the biggest challenge of any real estate agent who is successful,” says Gold. “Besides my own sphere of influence, I get more business from agents than any other source. REALM has given me a new tool to meet the people I don’t know. When you take REALM’s Artificial Intelligence and then apply human intelligence to that, there is money to be made.”
Ruth Kennedy Sudduth a REALM founding partner with LandVest in Boston was approached by a client, the head of a major money management firm there who had been looking at a property in Wyoming. The feeling was the advice they were getting from the local broker might not be benefiting them. Kennedy Sudduth connected her client with Realm CEO, Faupel, and her husband, Matt, to help them navigate the complexities of a potential conservation purchase.
In turn, Sudduth, reached out to Brennan Buckley, a fellow REALM founding partner in Iowa, for a recommendation for a good Kansas City real estate company for her friend’s son, who was looking to buy. Brennan connected Sudduth with the CEO of Reese Nichols, the market leader in Kansas City, who matched the perfect agent to the buyer. “The essence of REALM is creating real relationships between people with the help of AI and big data,” Sudduth notes.
Early adopters and collaborators with REALM include real estate professionals and industry leaders from across the U.S. led by agents from Brown Harris Stevens, Strand Hill Properties, Richardson Properties, Hilton & Hyland, Slifer Smith, and Frampton, Landvest and Compass.
Douglas Todd: China's real-estate investors down on Vancouver, but not out – Vancouver Sun
Huawei CEO Meng Wenghzou must stay under mansion arrest following this week’s court decision in Vancouver. China’s authorities rage, while continuing to unfairly jail Michael Spavor and Michael Korvig and drastically cut imports of Canadian canola.
Rival ethnic Chinese groups clash in the streets of Vancouver over Beijing’s clampdown on Hong Kongers’ freedoms. COVID-19 kills more than 6,800 across Canada and lockdown virtually ends international travel, sending home many of China’s foreign students, especially from Toronto and Vancouver.

China-Canada relations are at their lowest ebb in decades, particularly according to China’s pervasive regime-backed media outlets, which this week called Canada a “pathetic clown.”
And that has implications for Metro Vancouver’s housing market.
This region of 2.6 million is feeling the impact of soured relations with China, even while polling suggests the city continues to retain some of its traditional allure to the world’s most populous country as a desirable place to experience and invest in.
Ontario Real Estate Association hands down new guidelines as folks begin looking back into housing market – Barrie 360 – Barrie 360
While officials are expecting the Canadian housing market to take a real hit because of the COVID pandemic, Ontario realtors are still taking steps to protect those who want to buy or sell a home.
The Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) has issued a series of guidelines to protect the health and safety of not just those in the market to buy or sell, but the realtors doing the deals too.
Most home showings have been done virtually since the emergency was declared in Ontario, and the OREA says that should become standard practice for now. Documents, forms, and acknowledgments should be processed electronically according to these guidelines. The OREA asks that physical home showings should be preceded by thoroughly disinfecting surfaces, and a physical distance should be maintained while interacting with clients directly. The OREA asks that personal protective equipment be used when distancing isn’t possible. A complete list of the OREA’s recommendations can be found on its website.
Now that the Ontario Government has announced a phased reopening, the OREA feels many consumers are looking to get back into the market in person. “The health and safety of our Realtors and their clients is OREA’s top priority during this pandemic,” says Sean Morrison, President of OREA. “As Ontario’s economy reopens, many Ontarians are looking to get back into the real estate market. Realtors are here to help make home buyers and sellers feel comfortable and safe while they work to find their dream home. OREA’s guidelines have been informed by up-to-date information from public health, best practices from the industry and experiences in jurisdictions across North America.”

Among potential sellers, the Léger poll found 58 per cent would put their homes on the block to move somewhere with more land, while 55 per cent would do so for a larger home.
A large proportion of respondents ages 55-64 would sell in order to move to a less expensive home.
RE/MAX Québec vice-president Sylvain Dansereau said the polling dates were not changed despite the health crisis, adding that a second phase of the survey will be carried out this autumn to measure the effects of the outbreak on the real estate buying and selling preferences of Quebecers.
Quebec’s real estate industry received government authorization to resume operations on May 11.
The poll was conducted March 17-29 with 1,400 respondents in six regions of Quebec and has a 2.6-per-cent margin of error 19 times out of 20.
