NEW: Bring Your Listing to Life with Homesnap Stories
Homesnap is excited to announce our newest feature: Homesnap Stories! With Homesnap Stories, you can add unique, engaging marketing content right to your active listings through the Homesnap Pro app. Think of all the selling points about a home that are tough to get across in a photo. Now, you can take your own photos and videos and add them directly to your Homesnap listing. Add text, emojis, and even use augmented reality to create one-of-a-kind marketing content that you can also share on Facebook and Instagram. Record a voice-over or add music to personalize your Stories even more. We want agents to have an easy, engaging way to create marketing content (especially video) on their own, and that's the benefit of Homesnap Stories. Here's how you can add one to your listing: 1. Find the "Add Story" button near the top of any of your active listings. 2. Upload a photo from your phone, or take a new photo/video in real time. Swing by the property once it's on the market to add your Story, and add more content ahead of an open house to get potential buyers excited about visiting. Your Stories will stay on the listing until it's off the market. 3. Add text to make your photo or video pop. A few ideas: the name of the neighborhood, the time of your next open house, or a feature you want to highlight. 4. Add emojis or real estate stickers to call out important selling points We have a custom set of real estate-themed stickers — in addition to traditional emojis — so you can easily call out big selling points. New roof? Walk-in closet? Call 'em out in a fun way with our emoji stickers! 5. Add 3D effects with augmented reality mode Get really creative by adding personalized 3D effects — like a for-sale or open house sign — that become virtual objects in your Story! 6. Add voice-over or music You can record a voice-over if you want to explain specific features, or choose from our music library. The voice-over feature is a great opportunity to showcase your expertise on camera. If you don't want either, no worries — skip ahead! 7. Post that Story! When your Story is complete, hit the button to post and it'll appear right on your listing. If you want to share it on your own Facebook or Instagram Stories page, you can easily do that as well. After your Story is published, you can also see when your branded clients and connected agents have viewed your Story. It's a great way to follow up with clients who might be interested in your listing. Want a deeper dive into how to make Homesnap Stories and why every agent should be marketing their listings with them? Click here to sign up for our FREE webinar! Currently, Homesnap Stories is available on web and iOS — Android users will be able to add stories through their devices soon! To view the original post, visit the Homesnap blog.

Brokers' Rave Reviews Fueling Strong Growth, Aggressive Market Expansion for RealScout
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA (October 18, 2016) – Based on impressive business results reported by dozens of leading real estate brokers across California, RealScout, the brokerage branded, collaborative home search platform, is experiencing record growth and -- with $7 million in new funding -- expanding to several additional key markets across the U.S. RealScout helps agents increase both the number and velocity of offers by matching buyers withthe best homes based on exceptionally deep visibility into property characteristics and client preferences. The solution also fosters strong agent-client collaboration throughout the home buying process. "As a leader, we invest in the best tools for our agents," said Mark McLaughlin, CEO of PacificUnion, the ninth largest U.S. brokerage by sales volume. "We recently announced our exclusive in-house 'Best Buyer' report which gives agents real-time demographic information for targeted marketing. We provide RealScout as a growth engine for our agents and the best solution for agents to win new clients and stay at the heart of the decision making process." California's largest independent brokerage, First Team Real Estate, like Pacific Union and several other leading brokers, is aggressively investing in technologies that empower agents to provide asuperior client experience. "We looked to RealScout as a way to fundamentally differentiate our brokerage against our competitors," said First Team CIO Stephen Skinner. "It continues to help us recruit and retain the best agents, increase customer satisfaction and, most important, close more business." RealScout enables agents and homebuyers to search for features such as "gourmet kitchen," "lots of natural light," "large backyard," "Near Whole Foods," and countless others. The solution helps ensure that the best properties then automatically flow to the top of each client's property matches. RealScout has pioneered the use of "computer vision" technology to identify the key property features and benefits that can aid in the home buying decision. "We're now able to help our clients maximize their home search process and increase how quickly we can find them homes and get them into escrow," said Barbara McNeil, team leader for Southern. California's Keller Williams Beach Cities. "It's a total win-win. My agents tell me RealScout is like having their own white label version of Redfin. We never want to go back to life before RealScout." Among the dozens of other industry thought leaders that have chosen RealScout are Seven Gables Real Estate, a luxury broker based in Orange County; The Boutique Real Estate and RE/MAXEvolution, both also in Orange County; and, most recently, The Keyes Companies, which serves a six-county area in and around Miami, Fla. "We think RealScout's innovations in real estate home search will help place us head and shoulders above our competition in providing a truly customer-friendly home buying experience," said Mike Pappas, CEO of Keyes. RealScout's growth, with the solution having facilitated thousands of residential real estate transactions, was further strengthened by its inclusion in the prestigious National Association ofREALTORS® (NAR) 2016 REach® real estate accelerator class. "We were excited to introduce RealScout to our more than one million NAR members," said NAR CEO and Second Century Ventures President Dale Stinton. "RealScout helps agents generate more offers in less time by fostering strong client collaboration and extending users' search capabilities well beyond those commonly used today, adding tremendous value to NAR members. "These and other successes within RealScout's initial markets have helped build nationwide demand for the solution. They've also fueled new investments in the company's planned expansion, according to RealScout Co-Founder and CEO Andrew Flachner. "Brokers and agents who hear about and see RealScout invariably tell us, 'That's exactly what we've been looking for,'" Flachner said. "It's a powerful tool that answers one of the industry's biggest challenges --maximizing the effectiveness and value of brokers and agents in the minds of today's tech-savvy consumers."RealScout is available for agents, teams and brokerages at www.realscout.com.

CurbCall Announces Premiere Distribution Deal with Onboard Informations
  Boston, MA (July 29, 2016)--Boston-based real estate tech company CurbCall, Inc. just announced a joint marketing and distribution deal with Onboard Informatics, a leader in data-driven consumer engagement. Onboard will offer two products from CurbCall to reinforce their position as leaders in consumer engagement. These include the on-demand lead routing platform CurbCall Connect™ and the home showing safety app CurbCall Protect™. "Onboard is dedicated to providing break-through technology that helps realtors better engage consumers," said Onboard Informatics President Jonathan Bednarsh. "And in CurbCall Connect, we saw a game-changing lead routing platform that empowers agents to engage consumers instantly in real time, at the moment of intent." "We're thrilled to partner with a real estate technology leader like Onboard Informatics," said Stephanie Sullivan, CEO of CurbCall. "Being able to be part of an integrated solution for engaging real estate consumers makes for a far more powerful offering than we could offer on our own." It's well-known throughout the industry, that the first agent to respond to and engage with consumer has a high likelihood of closing them. But according to CurbCall Chief Marketing officer Mason Wiley, agents are hampered by the limitations of current lead routing systems. "Half of consumers today expect instant response, and over 75% expect a response within 30 minutes, but the average response time for real estate agents is 15.29 hours and 48% of buyer inquiries are never responded to at all," said Wiley. "CurbCall Connect's intelligent lead routing technology allows engagement to happen near instantaneously." Providing seamless API integration with the existing user interface for any website or mobile app, CurbCall Connect adds the capability for consumers to request immediate agent assistance. The CurbCall Connect platform has the built-in intelligence to instantly route that request though a smartphone app to agents who are qualified to provide assistance and are available to respond "right now." It also provides an administrative dashboard providing reporting and analytics on the disposition of inbound leads and agent performance in responding for full accountability. See the demo at curbcall.com/connect-demo. In addition to CurbCall Connect, Onboard will also be offering the safety app CurbCall Protect. "Given the number of crimes against realtors that occur every year, we're grateful for Onboard's support in getting CurbCall Protect into the hands of agents," said Sullivan. "If we can save the lives of even just one or two real estate professionals, that will make all of our efforts worth it." CurbCall Protect is a standalone smartphone app that makes it easy for agents to be safer during showings. With the press of a single button, agents can send an SMS text to their emergency contacts alerting them that they have begun a showing with a link to a map that displays the agent's location in real time. The app also includes a panic button the agent can press if they feel in danger during the showing, plus a "safety radius" feature that instantly delivers an automatic alert to the agent's emergency contacts should the agent unexpectedly leaves the showing area.

Homesnap Leaves Broker Roots Behind in Move to BPP
ROCKVILLE, MD--(May 27, 2016) - Homesnap, creator of highly-rated real estate apps for consumers and agents, will abandon its remaining brokerage licenses in conjunction with its recently announced partnership with the Broker Public Portal (BPP), completing the company's transformation into a vital partner of the real estate industry. Homesnap began as a pure consumer app in 2012. At the time, the company operated as a real estate broker in many markets. Homesnap quickly became the highest-rated real estate app in the App Store, used by millions of consumers. But consumers weren't the only people using Homesnap. "Immediately after launch, we noticed something quite remarkable -- real estate agents were using it like crazy," said Homesnap co-founder Guy Wolcott, "we realized there was a significant opportunity to create a professional version, just for agents." Since launching that professional app, Homesnap Pro, the company partnered with leading Multiple Listing Services (MLSs) across the country, leaving its brokerage origins behind to become a trusted vendor to, and partner of, local brokers and agents. As a result, Homesnap is free from ads and paid agent placement. And the company has voluntarily followed "fair display guidelines", protecting agent-client relationships, and driving new consumer inquiries to the listing agent or broker at no cost. Last week, Homesnap announced a historic partnership with the BPP to expand this industry-friendly approach to the entire country, offering consumers a home search experience defined by simplicity, integrity and common sense; and enabling MLSs to provide best-in-class consumer apps across platforms, industry-leading mobile tools for every agent, and a robust broker dashboard to track agent, office and market activity. As a result, Homesnap will divest itself of all legacy real estate brokerage licenses and MLS memberships. MLS listings will only appear on Homesnap -- following "fair display guidelines" -- via the company's partnership with the BPP, and the decision to participate in the BPP will be made by individual MLSs. The BPP is backed by 115 MLSs and real estate companies, including franchisors, independent brands, big brokers, and small brokers, operating in diverse markets across the country and collectively representing over 500,000 real estate agents. Already, MLSs with over 80,000 members have announced their intent to participate in the BPP at launch. Many more are expected to follow suit in the near future. About BPP The Broker Public Portal LLC is a collaborative venture between real estate brokerages and MLSs to create a national consumer home search experience defined by simplicity, integrity and common sense. The portal aims to provide consumers with direct access to the most comprehensive, timely, and complete property information while adhering to fair display guidelines. More information can be found at http://brokerpublicportal.com. About Homesnap Homesnap is the highest-rated mobile real estate app, used by millions of consumers to explore homes and search listings. Homesnap Pro, the professional version of Homesnap, is the fastest-growing mobile app for agents -- now available to every agent in 40 MLSs with over 300,000 members. Both are powered by a specialized homes database that combines MLS data, property tax records, census data, geographic boundaries and more.

"Merging the data of four different real estate boards was a real challenge for our team, but was definitely worth the effort as it is a fantastic feature for members." Drouin added that Prospects Mobile will continue to bring new features to the app as ListCENTRAL expands its services. The search integration initiative from ListCENTRAL expands a board's tools for its members while they maintain their own listing and membership data.

Terabitz Introduces HouseTouch, The First Responsive Real Estate Search Platform
Monday, April 21, 2014--Terabitz introduces HouseTouch, the scalable, responsive real estate search platform for homebuyers. The touch and tag-based search platform provides all data via one interface—and across multiple devices. HouseTouch is designed for online house hunting—from both home and office, or while out exploring neighborhoods. The revolutionary search interface is completely touch, tag, and geo-based. Using HouseTouch, homebuyers search for available homes with the touch of a finger or the swipe of the hand. "Tablet-based search is increasingly popular with homebuyers. However real estate websites are not specifically designed for touch devices, so the experience is cumbersome and unwieldy," states Denessa Munsterman of PCMS Consulting. "Or consumers are asked to download real estate search apps, which provide a completely different user experience than their desktop, forcing homebuyers to adapt to multiple search interfaces. HouseTouch offers a great alternative to existing search technology." The feature-rich search platform enables consumers to "like" a property so it can make recommendations of similar homes. The HouseTouch backend also includes reporting analytics for brokers and agents. This powerful real-time data is based on homebuyers' searches, measuring what attributes and properties are most important to a consumer. Brokers and agents can then improve their marketing strategies to reach more homebuyers. HouseTouch? home search analytics are easily integrated into multiple real estate CRM packages.

Goomzee Launches CRMLS with Single Sign On
Missoula, Montana – February 18th, 2011 - Goomzee Corporation, a leading provider of mobile technology solutions that connects buyers and sellers, announced today it has gone live with its product, Realty Connect to 44,000 members of California Regional MLS (CRMLS). With the CRMLS launch, representing nearly 44,000 Southern California REALTORS, Goomzee’s MLS footprint in the United States now exceeds 120,000 MLS subscribers or approximately ten percent (10%) of America’s REALTORS. Goomzee’s Realty Connect® helps connect buyers and sellers using text messaging and integrates with MLS data systems.  Agents place signs or ads regarding a property for sale that prompts potential buyers to send a text message with a unique property ID code.  Within seconds the buyer receives a text message response containing property information and pricing.  The buyer then has the option to receive and view photos of the listing immediately on their phone.  At the same time, the agent is notified of the buyer’s inquiry.  Automated tools and responders then help the agent cultivate those leads and begin to establish a relationship with the buyer. To further aid CRMLS members, Goomzee also announced  that they have successfully completed a Web Single Sign-On (SSO) with CRMLS. With the SSO feature in place, members can login to the CRMLS Matrix system once and access Goomzee's marketing and lead generation platform without requiring separate logins.
