No matter what he says; Tell him we need to think about it

My guess is that before this meeting took place, you agreed not to make a buying decision today. That's perfectly understandable. Most of my clients want to think over my proposal. I've done the same thing myself.

All I ask is that if you see something that is a good fit for your needs and may bring your great benefits and may even save you money that you won't let that pact stand in your way.   That's fair isn't it?

Thank you Tom Hopkins

Smoke Smoke Smokin' in my condo


Trudeau...   The Past Prime Minister said it best when he said the "Government has no business in your bedroom"

What would he say about this?

Section 2(1) of the Human Rights Code provides that:
2.  (1)  Every person has a right to equal treatment with respect to the occupancy of accommodation, without discrimination because of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, marital status, family status, disability or the receipt of public assistance.
For the purposes of section 2(1) “occupancy of accommodation” has been interpreted to include living in a condominium corporation and “disability” includes a medical condition which may be irritated by the presence of smoke.
It is crucial to note that the Human Rights Code takes precedence over all other Ontario provincial laws, including the Condominium Act.

Meanwhile, those who smoke on balconies and carelessly flick their butts away are responsible for fires.   Who says so?    The Fire Department.

In the last five years, cigarettes sparked 97 fires on condo and apartment balconies, tallying $45M in damage, said fire chief Ken Block.
That includes the Clareview condo complex fire in May sparked by cigarette butt discarded into a diaper pail, which left more than 300 people without a home.
"Fires caused by the improper disposal of smoking material are completely preventable, and yet are the cause of some of our city's most dangerous and devastating fires, http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/cigarette-butt-receptacles-ordered-for-condo-apartment-balconies-1.3114066

So where will we go for a cigarette?

What about marijuana?   Legal Medical use...  I have a permit / script for that...   right?

What are your thoughts?

Digital Imaging arrives in Toronto

When home sellers see that you’ll be presenting their property online in immersive 3D, they will be blown away. A Matterport 3D Showcase™ makes you the clear choice to list any property. 

Digital Imaging Toronto is revolutionizing how real estate photographers, brokerages and agents showcase residential and commercial properties. The Matterport 3D technology is simple, powerful and effective. The ultimate home Viewing instrument that allows you to measure and create floorplans. 

A 3D Showcase™ is an online experience that lets home buyers move through a property and see it from any angle. Even get a completely unique sense for the place with our “dollhouse” view. Try it here!


Matterport 3D Media Platform Demo from Matterport on Vimeo.

... BUT there are thousands of other professions and services that could use this technology; 

  • Restaurant or Pub displaying their venue 
  • Homes under construction displayed in stages of completion 
  • Stores that have an online shopping presence 
  • Commercial Real Estate Brokers to display retail or office space. 
  • Home designers to display what could be changed. 
  • Insurance Companies for Claims or Verification Museums, 
  • Art Galleries and other Venues 

 Matterport is a key part of the optimal “click and mortar” showroom and commerce experience. The Matterport Pro 3D Camera and Capture App for iPad automatically produces high-quality immersive 3D models in the hands of any user. As the camera gently spins, it captures the colors and contours of a space—and calculates dimensions and spatial relationships between objects. Other laser-based camera systems are cumbersome, expensive and take days to create a 3D model. Access and organize your 3D models. 

The Matterport 3D Portal is a management and distribution platform for all of your 3D models. Access and organize your scan jobs and models, collaborate with your team, share models with clients, and publish models to the general public. All of your 3D models are uploaded into the folder you designate for each user. Cloud-based creation and hosting of high-fidelity 3D models. 

The Matterport Cloud executes an extensive set of computer vision algorithms to process the photography and 3D data, creating a 3D model that combines HDR-quality imagery with dimensionally accurate geometry. In this way, geometrical data is converted into an efficient polygonal mesh, which can be easily streamed to the Matterport 3D Showcase media player. 

Be there. From anywhere. Once a Matterport 3D model is hosted in the Matterport Cloud, viewers anywhere in the world can explore these spaces from their desktop or mobile device. The result? A totally immersive experience that literally transports you. 

 This functionality is now available on Virtual Reality platforms like VR Googles. http://matterport.com/virtual-reality/ News Releases http://matterport.com/in-the-news/
