OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - — One of the largest home buying companies in the country will expand in a major way in Omaha next year.
It's main goal is to modernize the home buying process.
Jeff Cohn, who's now the CEO of KW Elite, says he's working to create a real estate office of the future.
"The focus of the new Keller Williams office is to be centered on the consumer and give the agent a tech-empowered office so they can give the consumer the best experience possible," he said.
Cohn tells us they'll be using virtual reality, which will allow home buyers to see their home potential home before stepping a foot inside.
"Inside of our office we're going to have tech rooms including virtual reality rooms that allow a consumer to look at properties that both exists and are in the construction phase that don't exists yet, he said. "All in a virtual world with Oculus goggles."
He says the technology will revolutionize home buying.
The advancement of technology will facilitate the buying process and the selling process in that it empowers the consumer the ability to look at properties from their home and narrow down their search to maybe their top 3," he said. "Which saves them time and money."
Cohn says he the new 10,000 square foot market center will provide more then 250 jobs.
"It will serve as the hub to expand into 100 different cities across the United States to help bring them this tech-empowered strategy while also offering their consumers and their agents ancillary businesses like mortgage insurance and investing," Cohn said.
The new market center will also include a state-of-the-art training facility, and Artificial Intelligence to better serve customers and agents.
