On October 4th and 5th, a collective of brokers from Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) and representatives from the forthcoming NEXUS Condominium Tower attended the 2016 GeekWire Summit. As a nationally recognized, leading conference on technology, the event brings hundreds of entrepreneurs and business leaders together to, as the website describes, “explore the future of the innovation economy.”
With a variety of panels and talks on topics ranging from augmented reality to smart architecture, representatives from RSIR including Dean Jones, President & CEO, along with brokers Anastasia Miles, Phil Greely, and Lorraine Rotanelli enjoyed learning about what the future will bring.
“I expected to be surrounded by geeky developers but was surprised to rub elbows with hundreds of innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders in the tech community,” said Greely. “As a real estate broker in a city driven by tech, I wanted to hear where industry leaders see our future going and how it applies to my world of real estate.”
Attendees were intrigued and inspired when given the opportunity to learn about the recent announcement that the Burrard Group, developers of the 383-unit NEXUS condominium tower in downtown Seattle, is collaborating with Seattle-based IoT company Sirqul to establish a new product category for residential real estate – the smart connected building.
As Robert Frederick, President & CEO of Sirqul, said “smart spaces within residential communities will eventually be as expected as indoor plumbing . . . together we aim to deliver a future-proof environment that will greatly enhance the lifestyle offering of NEXUS while improving the overall efficiency of its operation.”

RSIR’s presence at the GeekWire Summit was timely, as the firm and GeekWire announced an exclusive media partnership last month. The dynamic platform showcases properties, highlights market trends, and features real estate sponsors. It also offers a real time voting tool for users to select the current “Geek Home of the Week,” as more than 1 million unique visitors per month visit the website and 25,000 active subscribers digest the daily newsletter.
