Quinte, On. real estate agent: Could You Be Canada's Next Property Mogul?

Could You Be Canada's Next Property Mogul?

Are you up for the challenge of becoming Canada's next property mogul? Century 21 Canada believes that you may be.

Century 21 Canada is launching their own video game and anyone can participate. It's much along the lines of those games that people play on Facebook (in fact, that's probably where you will see it the most.

The object behind the game is to buy, sell, renovate or lease out properties that bring in a decent return. The imaginary city of Realopolos is divided into different neighbourhoods, some primarily residential and some primarily commercial, but most having a mix of the two. Players are supposed to take their small opening stake and invest it wisely to make it grow.

I'm pretty excited about the game, not because I believe that I'm going to be the next big mogul, but because I might get some good exposure. I am a character in this video game. People logging into this game from my area will be able to choose a real estate agent, of which I will be one of the choices (probably the most sensible one in my opinion). when they click on my character, my real life business card with my contact information will appear. Sounds like a good way to get my name out there in my area.

Anyhow, if you would like to check the game out, it's launching on March 1, so we're only a couple of days away. Simply go to Property Mogul and register on March 1. It's very easy. See you in Realopolis, bring your mortgage calculator.

HI Malcolm,

Just wondering is you have made a deal with "The Trump"  but in any event this could be a cool game and marketing idea for you and C21 in Trenton, good for you.

Malcolm - How fun that you're one of the characters in the game.  Do you speak when you're "clicked on"?

What a great idea - maybe this will give some buyers confidence in buying a real home if they do well in cyber space.

Malcolm seems like a fun idea. I checked it out, but wasn't sucked in to playing for very long.  I was looking for you, but in my time blocked day, I thought it best to not play right now.  Real Estate keeps continually changing, doesn't it?
