Just recently I realized that the condo sales team Binab Strasser is no more. The two partners, Jason Binab and David Strasser, appear to have gone their separate ways. Jason Binab now runs Binab Property Group and David Strasser is part of AREAS Real-Estate Group.

From the outside looking in it seemed like the duo were a powerhouse in the condo sales world. Does anyone have insight into what happened?

Binab's office is now on Oak Bay Ave. while AREAS is located in Binab Strasser's old digs at the foot of Yates.

I dunno, they always stuck me as kind of greazy. And they couldn't hold a candle to The Condo Group.

Condo Group.

Isn't Peter Gaby the original Condo King? He did every project in the 90's.

Yup, and well into the 2000's. For a while I think he had every major condo project under his belt.

Gaby was like Victoria's junior Bob Rennie. The Condo Group seems to be the aggressive sales force now. Didn't know much abut Binab Strasser.

I talked to Mr. Strasser a couple of weeks ago and basically he said they had differing ideas on where they wanted to take the business and they remain good friends. I think both will enjoy continued success.

Hi Marko,

Did you talk to Strasser about his http://www.poweredbyareas.com system. The introduction videos look pretty interesting, but I can't find a link on their website on how to actually use the Areas system or set up an account to try it. They are claiming it is the "e-harmony" of Real Estate. Is this something all Realtors have access to, or is it their own system?

Cheers.

So no gays? :)

A gay man from New Jersey named Eric McKinley filed suit against eHarmony in 2008 for not offering matchmaking for gays and lesbians. eHarmony settled by agreeing to launch a service for gay and lesbian customers called Compatible Partners. eHarmony’s launch of Compatible Partners was called a “shotgun wedding” by the Los Angeles Times, though. There wasn’t even a link to Compatible Partners at eharmony.com.

Furthermore, Compatible Partners had a completely different subscription system. Bisexuals had to pay two subscription fees to have access to both sexes.


Well, they do get twice as many possible matches.

What was this thread about again?

I guess they shouldn't promote it as the "e-harmony" of Real Estate if it doesn't come across a gay friendly... kind of off topic though and I am sure not what they had in mind with the analogy.

So, can anyone tell me how Strasser's AREAS thing works? I am still intrigued by the promotional videos.

Why don't you just email them and get set up on it?

While we often see Jason Binab in the local news these days, things had been very quiet about Mr. Strasser; that is, until this article came out in the Times Colonist last Friday...
