Seven companies to offer MLS search from any mobile device
We are thrilled to announce that Realty ONE Group, miHomeSearch, Northern Alabama MLS, The Lucks Group, Linton Hall Realtors, The Stephanie Ellison Team and Roohan Realty are among the latest companies to begin offering mobile search to their agents, brokers and clients.
Consumers are demanding mobile access to real estate. With 1 out of 5 real estate searches happening on mobile devices, according to a study by the National Association of REALTORS (NAR) and Google, these brokerages and MLS providers decided it was imperative that they meet that demand with a customized mobile search platform.
“With consumers’ internet behavior moving from the computer to mobile devices more and more, Linton Hall Realtors® felt it was crucial to provide Northern Virginia home buyers and sellers a best-in-class mobile app for our local real estate market,” said Ashley Leigh, a real estate agent with Linton Hall Realtors® recently named again to the Wall Street Journal’s Top 100 Realtors® in America.
With the White Label mobile product developed by Smarter Agent, members, agents and consumers can search for available properties based on their current location, price, neighborhood, square footage, lot size, and property type. The listing information is provided directly from the MLS, meaning agents and consumers have access to an accurate, up-to-date source.
“Our agents are so successful because we know what our clients need and we give it to them,” said Kuba Jewgieniew, CEO of Realty One Group, a full-service real estate brokerage with more than 4,000 agents across 15 offices. “We saw our new mobile app as one more way to extend this customized, personalized information to our clients.”
The app, which is custom branded to the MLS or brokerage, sends all leads directly to the respective listing agent or office. An application downloader for websites and a custom text code make the app easy to share and download. White Label apps like those developed for this latest round of companies are available on iPhone, Android, tablet, and through mobile web.
“Today’s real estate market is moving at a rapid clip. Agents and their clients need access to the latest real estate information in real time and on-the-go,” said Smarter Agent CMO Philip Charles-Pierre. “The Smarter Agent Team is excited to be able to offer thousands of agents and the clients they represent this information.”
