Century21.ca – Century 21 Canada – in Chinese
The Globe & Mail recently took a look at what impact the Chinese economy may have on the Canadian real estate market in an article titled, Chinese investors eye Canadian housing boom.
Century 21 Canada’s efforts to serve Chinese speaking real estate buyers residing in China or Canada has not gone unnoticed:
The prospect of any sort of slowdown makes a pool of potential overseas buyers that much more attractive to the country’s real estate industry.
To tap into the demand, Century 21 will unveil a new Chinese version of its website this week, the first major real estate company to do so in Canada. The site is the cornerstone of a strategy that will see the company increasingly marketing properties directly to consumers in mainland China.

While the Globe & Mail mentioned the forward facing benefits of a Chinese website, it’s worth noting that the OnlineOffice used by agents and brokers is also trilingual, so Century 21 Canada agents and brokers can manage listings, create websites for themselves, and blog in the language(s) of their choice.
