As co-founder and chief executive officer of ShelterZoom, it is Chao Cheng-Shorland’s responsibility to provide each department with everything needed to ensure effective and efficient business. With a background in technology and forward-thinking ideas, she has helped to usher in revolutionary ways to manage documents and contracts in a secure manner. With the onset of the pandemic, Cheng-Shorland developed a software platform, DocuWalk, allowing agents to carry out high-quality services completely virtually.

“Providing agents and brokers with a way to perform business remotely means they can keep their clients engaged and interested. It also means their lives are easier because the documents and contracts are easier to manage,” she says.
