Listingbook-on-the-Go to Be a “Game-Changer” for Mobile Real Estate Search
Powerful portable IDX search experience personalized to individual agents offers the Listingbook Advantage, protecting and enhancing the relationship between real estate agents and their clients.
Greensboro, NC, August 21, 2014 — Listingbook has partnered with Smarter Agent Mobile to provide real estate agents with a best-in-class mobile application that is integrated into their Listingbook system. The partnership means that Listingbook’s 200,000 agents will have access to a state-of-the-art mobile solution that provides a new way for agents to prospect, manage and collaborate with clients, while giving clients and prospects a best in class mobile real estate search experience.
For agents, the app – comprised of native smartphone and tablet applications for both iOS and Android platforms – is included for free as part the premium Listingbook PRO subscription.
The newly integrated mobile app suite is personalized for each agent and is designed to generate new leads, service existing customers, get insight into their clients mobile search activity, and have all client communications go directly to them. Listingbook-On-The-Go will use full Internet Data Exchange (IDX) data and extends the Listingbook proposition of enabling agents to provide consumers with the best and most up-to-date real estate information in a collaborative environment, whether on the web or in a mobile environment.
“Home buyers and sellers are being bombarded by a multitude of home search options, most of which provide inferior data or an incomplete search experience,” said Randall Kaplan, Chairman and CEO of Listingbook LLC. “With Listingbook-On-The-Go, consumers finally can be assured that they need just one integrated mobile and web app to find the home of their dreams. And agents can rest easy, knowing that their clients will remain loyal to them – while remaining in control of the agent/client relationship.”
“In many ways, Listingbook is the opposite of Zillow, in that Listingbook not only provides users with the most up to date and complete local listing information directly from the MLS, but also allows the agent to have insight into consumers’ search activities and to seamlessly communicate with his or her clients and prospects,” Kaplan added. “Listingbook-On-The-Go extends this value proposition to the mobile experience.”
With the GPS-enabled app, consumers can search by location, address, city or zip code to see property details for all homes for sale or rent in a specified area, including features, maps, photos and more. A “refine search” feature will let users specify price range, property type and the number of beds and baths to help them zero in on exactly what they are looking for. A key component of this offering is that when a consumer finds a property they like and “favorite” it, that selection will be automatically synchronized with their desktop version of Listingbook. Additionally, Smarter Agent Mobile and Listingbook have developed the ability for a client’s favorites and logins to be recorded in their Agent’s Listingbook “Client Manager,” Listingbook’s patented system that gives agents insight into their clients’ search activities.
Listingbook-On-The-Go – which uses Smarter Agent Mobile’s cascading platform — is personalized and branded for each agent, ensuring that all calls and emails initiated from the app will go to the providing agent. Additionally, the app’s intuitive and easy sharing ensures that agents can invite anyone to use their custom-branded version of Listingbook-On-The-Go, simply by giving their direct link or personal code to their clients and prospects or by posting the links on Facebook, Twitter or other social media sites.
“We have joined forces to help our partners at Listingbook create a mobile solution offering that is hard to beat, given the ever-crowded marketplace for mobile real estate search,” said Brad Blumberg, CEO of Smarter Agent Mobile. “We are especially pleased to include integration with Listingbook’s much-heralded lead incubation and client servicing platform. This seamless integration is a first of its kind in the market and will become a fundamental tool for agents who wish to be at the top of their game.”
Listingbook will begin launching Listingbook-On-The-Go in its markets across the country in the next few weeks.
