Welcome to the launch of Avison Young’s dynamic blog. Expanding on our commitment to social media and real-time communications with clients, employees and industry participants, Avison Young is determined to continue innovating and delivering value to the online real estate community. Whether it’s our use of Twitter to disseminate market news, listings and opportunities; our quarterly audiocasts to convey trends, research and market strategies; LinkedIn to connect with the industry; or video casts such as our latest contribution to CRE-Advice.com (which launched its first Commercial Real Estate Leadership Online Video Summit last week http://www.cre-advice.com/speaker_details.php?spid=19 ), we believe that internet-based communications are integral to the future of real estate services and information. Effective immediately, we expect to deliver daily content from a cross section of writers throughout the Avison Young family. The bloggers have been chosen to contribute content on local, regional and global real estate market trends, and represent a diverse cross section of perspectives. We hope you will enjoy the experience as much as we will enjoy blogging with you.
