John L. Scott’s technology department is also dedicated to creating modern, customizable and responsive technology for its brokers and ensuring the business is embracing technical innovation. Its Chief Information Officer (CIO), Teresa Duran, drives this innovation through the development of custom technology that improves business operations, like a proprietary CRM tool for agents that allows them to manage their relationships and distribute tailored marketing campaigns.
