LNG Studios is a vertically integrated creative visualization agency specializing in the real estate industry and the presale market. We specialize in using leading and unique technologies to provide real estate developers and marketers with all the assets required to launch a new development.
Tell us about yourself?
My passion for visualization and technology has always been present. First with video games, then with film, ultimately leading to a BA and two diplomas in Film Studies. In 2005, I started working with Novus Entertainment and immediately found opportunities for technological innovation. Along with digitizing the channel, I developed a vision for the future of the real estate market and its involvement with technology. By 2006, I had founded the Real Estate Channel, Canada’s only 24/7 real estate television network reaching millions of viewers and ultimately becoming my “in” into the real estate industry.
In 2009, I founded LNG Studios, a creative visualization company specializing in property technology services. We were an early adopter of industry drone services, and in 2014, we brought Matterport (a 3D scanning technology) to Canada. We were the first to implement 3D printing for architectural purposes and are now launching a new product called Proxima HQ, a platform that completely digitizes the real estate presentation center.
Over the years, LNG Studios has organically grown into a fully-integrated, tech-first real estate supporter. We have partnered with companies like IShot and Periphery Digital to bring maximum value and convenience to our clients. Last year, I was humbled to receive awards for Canada’s Top 40 under 40, Top 40 under 40 in Canadian Construction, and Business in Vancouver’s BC 500. This recognition encourages me further to push the boundaries of this industry.
If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
Pay more attention to yourself. To your health, both physical and mental. Entrepreneurs spend much time focusing on pushing the business forward, but without well-being, everything falls apart.
What problem does your business solve?
LNG Studios provides all the marketing assets that are required for a pre-sale development launch. Due to our extensive services, clients can keep a project with one vendor, ensuring their assets are visually consistent. With our years of experience in the industry, we’re also able to provide strategic guidance to our clients.
What is the inspiration behind your business?
Coming from an entrepreneurial family, I have always been interested in starting my own business. I have always gravitated towards innovation and technology and how it could impact the industry that I am in. Real Estate is traditionally a very slow industry to innovate, so it was obvious that was where I should start.
What is your magic sauce?
We are always seeking out and exploring new technologies and adopting or adapting them to support our industry. This ensures our clients stay ahead of the competition.
What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?
We are launching a new product called Proxima HQ. It is a completely digital presentation center platform that houses all your marketing assets. This platform allows your development sales to launch faster, more efficiently, and at a fraction of the cost of a traditional presentation center.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
Some competitors have embraced the adoption of emerging technologies in the real estate visualization industry, but this has only inspired us to create products or technologies internally, like Proxima HQ.
