Real Estate Website Zoocasa.com Re-launches in Canada



Site returns with same home search technology under new ownership

TORONTO, July 2, 2015  /CNW/ - Zoocasa.com, the real estate website that empowers consumers to search for home listings across the MLS database and take advantage of innovative home buying tools, has re-launched under new ownership. Lauren Haw, backed by a group of real estate and technology investors, purchased the website from Rogers Communications Inc. after the company shut down Zoocasa's operations on June 22. The site will retain the same home search technology and tools that made it one of Canada's fastest growing online and mobile real estate destinations.

"Zoocasa.com is an important Canadian asset, backed by unique technology and a brand that's recognized by millions of Canadians," said Haw, who led investors in the successful bid for Zoocasa.com and will serve as Zoocasa's new CEO. "Our mission is to give homebuyers access to the best possible real estate tools and information while providing a premium level of in-house customer service?and that means building a team of professionals who can adapt to changing consumer expectations."

Haw is a Toronto-based real estate broker and serial entrepreneur with 10 years' experience launching, managing and investing in Canadian ventures. She currently leads a team of agents at Scholarhood.ca, a lead generation platform she launched in 2013, which helps families find homes in the most desirable school districts in the GTA by leveraging school rankings and district boundaries.

"Scholarhood allowed our team to witness first-hand the web's power to open information and enhance the home buying experience for families," said Haw. "From handling initial inquiries to closing a home and beyond, we are extremely excited about Zoocasa's potential to advance an industry that's still resistant to change."

Zoocasa.com will continue to provide Canadians with industry-leading tools that make home buying and selling easier, including the ability to:
