Akber Abbas, President and Chief Information Officer of 8Twelve, remarked, "With rising interest rates and tighter lending requirements, Canadians now more than ever need to know all their home financing options." "This agreement highlights the strength of our service offering in enabling large-scale enterprises to deliver the best financing solutions to their clients," he concluded.

Side | January 05, 2023
INFINITAS Realty recently announced a collaboration with Side, the only provider of real estate technology that works with top-performing brokers, teams, and agents to help them become market-leading boutique brands. Through this agreement, INFINITAS Realty will be able to offer its future-proof services on the market's most cutting-edge platform.
INFINITAS Realty is challenging the entire real estate sector to advance in order to reach its high standards. The team provides seamless client experiences that are complemented by its transaction coordination software, called Property Wand, and private services in staging, design, and landscaping. The company achieves this by striking a balance between a traditional work ethic and advanced technological innovations.
With the help of Side, INFINITAS Realty will be able to keep up with the ever-changing real estate industry and continue to provide excellent service to its customers. The San Francisco-based company Side provides INFINITAS Realty with a comprehensive brokerage platform that includes proprietary technology, transaction management, branding and marketing services, public relations, legal support, lead generation, vendor management, infrastructure solutions, and more. In addition, INFINITAS Realty will become part of a select group of Side partners, expanding their access to global business infrastructure.
INFINITAS Realty said that it is excited to raise the bar in the real estate industry and make changes that are much needed. It went on to say that with Side's cutting-edge marketing, technological, administrative, and legal services, the company can take its disruptive approach to new heights and assist more clients in actualizing their dreams.
Side is the first real estate brokerage platform on the market. It lets the best agents, teams, and independent brokers build and grow their businesses without managing a brokerage, which can be challenging, expensive, and risky. In contrast to consumer-facing brokerage companies, Side provides its partners with time-saving technology and superior support services so that they can focus on what is more critical, i.e., servicing their clients and communities.
