BMW Canada and The Heaps Estrin Real Estate Team launch luxury GTA real estate initiative. Luxury class BMW vehicles featured at exclusive Toronto residential listings.
July 30, 2019, Toronto ON – Luxury leaders BMW Canada and The Heaps Estrin Real Estate Team, one of Royal LePage Canada’s leading Toronto real estate teams, joined forces to introduce a new innovation in home staging for exceptional properties. The initiative sees the luxury automotive leader placing their highest end vehicles in the driveways of some of the most exclusive listings in the GTA to further elevate these homes of distinction.
Research indicates that a house is the largest purchase most Canadians make followed closely by their vehicle. Furthermore, 33% of Canadian luxury vehicle purchases decisions are triggered by a new home purchase*.
Reaching luxury clientele often demands a more unique and personalized approach to marketing than traditional methods may offer, and this initiative has helped both brands offer an exclusive program that delivers the highest levels of exceptional service.
“With our focus on innovation and seeking new ways to reach the luxury buyer, we saw an incredible opportunity to team up with The Heaps Estrin Real Estate Team to create a truly unique platform in automotive and real estate marketing,” said Michael Oliver, National Manager of BMW Brand Communications for BMW Canada.
The initial pilot launched with several Heaps Estrin Real Estate Team homes of distinction ranging in list price from 2.9M to 5.9M in some of Toronto’s most sought-after neighbourhoods, such as Rosedale, Moore Park, Bennington Heights and Leaside. Each home featured one of three of BMW’s highest end luxury vehicles, including the first-ever statement SUV, the elegant BMW X7, the turbocharged state-of-the-art electric BMW i8 Roadster, and the
high-performance luxury model, the BMW M5. The vehicles have been featured within digital home listings and are also made available for use as part of the exterior staging for open house events.
“At Heaps Estrin we are always looking for innovative strategies to market our client’s properties, and the BMW staging initiative drives the luxury positioning of our listings in a unique way,” said Cailey Heaps Estrin, Managing Director of the Heaps Estrin Real Estate Team. “Partnering with the BMW Canada team offers a competitive edge and takes luxury real estate marketing to the next level. It is exactly this kind of differentiation that our clientele looks for in a luxury real estate service.
