Howard Hanna Twilight Open Houses: Why You Should Visit a House for Sale in the Evening
Pittsburgh, PA (July 11, 2019) – Howard Hanna Real Estate State Services continues its tradition of hosting mid-week evening open houses during the summer months from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. "Our Twilight Open Houses give buyers another opportunity to see homes for sale," says Howard W. "Hoby" Hanna, IV, President of Real Estate Brokerage. "In addition to the traditional weekend open houses, we want to give you a chance to see your potential next home in a new light. When you visit a home has a big impact on how the lighting will look. Rooms that are bright by day may look totally different in the evening, or the home may have great outdoor lighting that cannot be seen during the day. Plus, we have found that many people like the convenience of weekday evenings, leaving weekends free for outdoor activities during the warmer weather." Howard Hanna offices hold Twilight Open Houses in Pennslyvania, Michigan, New York, Virginia and North Carolina on Wednesday evenings from 5:00pm to 7:00 pm; in Ohio, they are held Thursday evenings from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The remaining schedule is below. Wednesday, July 17 & Thursday, July 18 Wednesday, August 14 & Thursday, August 15 Each open house is hosted by a Howard Hanna agent who is available to discuss the home's features along with exclusive programs such as Move Faster, Buy Before You Sell, and Find It First™ (in Ohio).

Schedule Your Showings the Way You Want!
We are thrilled to announce the release of one of the biggest features we've ever added to our system. Our automated showing scheduling system has been completely remodeled, making scheduling showings faster and easier than ever. At Showing Suite, we heard complaints about automated showing systems that only allow you to choose a single time for a showing, turning scheduling into a frustrating loop trying to pick a time that works for all parties. Our new system dramatically increases the ease of successfully scheduling showings by allowing the Buyer or Buyer's Agent to choose up to 3 available times for a showing. Decide how you and your sellers want to be contacted, either by text, email, or both; all built by Showing Suite with mobile first in mind. Three time slots for everyone to choose from makes it easier to successfully confirm more showings. Three Ways to Schedule Your Showings: Text/SMS, web URL, and email. Two quick ways to be notified of showing updates – via SMS/text messages and email messages. Add your locally provided showing phone number to your yard signs. This will text the buyer a property flyer with your built in showing calendar, allowing buyers to request an immediate showing. Select the duration of a showing right from the schedule request form. We allow you to customize the showing duration to accommodate your showing request. If none of the selected showing times will work, all parties have the ability to reschedule a showing through the automated system, alerting all confirming parties – no phone tag necessary! The rescheduling party can fill out a "reason for reschedule", which is displayed for the listing agent to see. Once all parties electronically confirm the showing time, everyone is automatically notified of the scheduled showing. Additional features and updates include: If a prospect calls into the scheduling phone number, they can be connected to the agent's phone using a touch-tone selection. Seller confirmed reminder notes – Add in a specific Seller Note when Showing is Confirmed. Schedule to send a showing reminder to all parties prior to the showing time. If there are parties that have not confirmed 24 hours prior to a showing, the listing agent will also receive an email informing them of which parties have not confirmed, and contact information for each of them. A showing can be rescheduled up to three times before the showing is canceled by the system. There are now additional questions asked of the buyer when filling out a scheduling request, allowing the listing agent to see more information about their prospect in their Showing Suite account. All agents have the ability to show their calendars as "prebooked" by a certain percentage so that the calendar appears filled for prospective buyer prospects. Listing Agents will see a notice when confirming showings if there is another showing at that date/time. Complete UI overhaul of the email and mobile responsive pages for scheduling, rescheduling, and showing status pages as well. We are very happy to aid in your success! To learn more about our new scheduling system, or if you have any questions, contact us at support[at]showingsuite.com. To view the original article, visit the Showing Suite blog.

When an agent chooses to upgrade to a Showing Suite Ultimate subscription they will have access to additional features in their Showing Suite account.

Fresno Association of REALTORS® Chooses the Showing Suite MLS Version for all of Their Members
San Diego, CA (February 26, 2015)--Showing Suite, Inc. is proud to announce that Fresno Association of REALTORS® (FAR) will be implementing Showing Suite's showing scheduling software for their MLS. A great addition to any MLS, FAR decided Showing Suite was a good fit for their 3,200 members. Members will be able to schedule all their showings within and outside the MLS. "FAR has a high level of professionalism which can be seen in how our organization and REALTORS® conduct themselves. The Fresno MLS is a resource to all of Fresno County and provides quality service as well as resources for its members. The MLS Committee felt the importance of providing a showing service that will align with FAR's standards while giving our members access to time-saving tools," said Linda Hergenrader, MLS Operations Coordinator. Showing Suite is working directly with Rapattoni, Fresno's MLS Software provider, to add a "schedule a showing" button to each listing. Clicking this link will use Single Sign On to log the member into their Showing Suite account. Once logged in they'll be able to schedule a showing according to the preferences that the listing agent indicates. Buyers agents can use their free account to quickly create showing tours. A showing tour will include each listing with a confirmed showing appointment. The buyer's agent has everything they need to arrange the tour in their account. They can ask questions to the listing agent, schedule and re-arrange showings, and map the showing tour. All of the information about the listings can be printed, emailed to buyers, or shared in the Showing Note mobile app. Showing Note is like EVERNOTE for showings; it allows buyers to take photos, videos, and notes at each listing and save everything in one place. Along with being able to access their showing tours, users receive updates about the listings they have seen and can share their notes and pictures with fellow collaborators or on social media. Each listing agent will have a set of free features in their account as well. The listing agent will choose if they want to allow buyers to schedule showings on their listings using the Showing Suite calendar. Appointment requests submitted through the calendar can trigger an automatic showing request email to confirm the appointment or suggest a different time. These emails may be sent directly to the listing agent, the seller, an office admin, or any combination of parties that may need to confirm the showing. Listing agents will also have the option of enabling an enhanced showing scheduling system called Showing Robot on their listings. Showing Robot allows the listing agent to enable phone calls and text messages for appointment confirmation in addition to email. With the "Text2Show" service buyers can schedule showings by texting the local Showing Robot number provided to the listing agent to find that property, see the mobile flyer, and choose a time for a showing. This number can save agents money because they won't have to subscribe to an additional service to get a sign rider text-message marketing system for their listings. If the buyers want an immediate showing they can select the "InstaShow" button which will try to get them into the showing as soon as possible. Showing Robot is just the tip of the iceberg for Showing Suite Ultimate subscribers. Listing agents will also be able to gather showing feedback using Showing Suite's award winning Home Feedback system. They will be able to generate powerful statistical reports for each listing so they can make modifications to sell homes as quickly as possible. Additional features in a Showing Suite Ultimate account include the Home Followup CRM, Customer Satisfaction Surveys and a robust mobile app to manage showings on the go. About Fresno Association of REALTORS® The Fresno Association of REALTORS® mission is to promote the professionalism of REALTORS®. They strive to make programs and services available to their members that allow them to conduct their business with integrity and competency. Active in their community, the Fresno Association of REALTORS® and Affiliates Foundation aims at helping those in Fresno County own homes through education, housing affordability projects and community involvement.

ShowingTime And Goomzee Integrate Solutions
Missoula, MT,  September 18, 2014 — Real estate professionals around the U.S. can now schedule showings with other agents directly from Goomzee Mobile MLS, a mobile listing search and collaboration tool for popular tablets and smart phones. Goomzee, a leading provider of mobile MLS apps for real estate professionals, announced today that they've successfully integrated ShowingTime's popular scheduling system directly into the Goomzee Mobile MLS app. MLS markets that participate with Goomzee and ShowingTime will benefit from this collaboration by providing a comprehensive solution for real estate professionals on the go to get their work done more efficiently. "ShowingTime for the MLS, available in more than 75 MLSs across the country, helps agents remove some of the obstacles to showing a home; direct integration within Goomzee's Mobile MLS takes the streamlined process to a whole new level," said ShowingTime President Michael Lane. Goomzee's system leverages a deep integration with ShowingTime to instantly detect which listings are available for showing, and presents the option to the agent. Whenever they view available listings, they can tap a "Schedule a Showing" option either from their phone or tablet, and ShowingTime's scheduling system appears within, allowing them to collaborate with other agents. Agents using Goomzee's Mobile MLS app will be able to schedule a showing directly within the app, without leaving, so they can continue working without interruption. "We've been a longtime partner with MLSs and industry vendors and we understand the importance of integrating best-of-breed solutions agents have already grown to love that already work with their MLS system," explains Mike Sparr, Goomzee's CEO and founder. "We integrated with RPR, Clareity Security, and Instanet Solutions from day one, and we continue to work closely with the industry's leading technology solution providers and collaborate to solve our mutual customers' needs." Real estate professionals served by Realtors® Association of York & Adams Counties (RAYAC), an MLS market served by both Goomzee and ShowingTime, are the first to benefit from this collaboration. Additional MLSs already or soon working with both companies are scheduled to receive the free app upgrade in weeks that follow. "One of the reasons we chose Goomzee is their longtime reputation for top customer service, the speed and ease of their mobile apps, and their willingness to work with our current technology partners," says Rhonda Elliott, Systems Manager for Realtors® Association of York & Adams Counties. "I'm blown away at how responsive and pro-active they have been along the way and our members are delighted." Goomzee's Mobile MLS solutions are already deployed with MLSs in Arizona, California, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Idaho, Oregon, Florida, Montana, Colorado, and Arkansas including Idaho's largest MLS, Intermountain MLS and recently, Tucson and San Francisco markets. ShowingTime's integration with Goomzee joins other industry-leading tools from Clareity Security, Instanet Solutions, Cloud CMA, RPR, Education.com, Walkscore, and more who already integrate with Goomzee Mobile MLS. About Goomzee Goomzee celebrated its 11th year in business in 2014. The company began as an e-commerce application service provider, powering and hosting small business' e-commerce websites, but shifted to real estate technology just as the industry fell into turmoil to solve recognized gaps in mobile technology. The company has been serving the real estate industry since 2007, and multiple listing services since 2008. Its initial real estate product called Goomzee Connect allows agents to capture leads at the property via text message codes on sign riders and a lead capture system. After working closely with MLSs and providing its service as a member benefit in nearly 30 MLS markets, representing over 296,000 agents, MLSs approached Goomzee to co-design a mobile solution that would best serve the needs of their members. Their current solution represents a culmination of their first-generation web solution, and two years of research and development to offer a platform that rivals the large portals.

SAN DIEGO (December 12, 2013) – Showing Suite, Inc., a San Diego based real estate technology company that focuses on showing solutions for agents and home buyers, has announced the beta release of Showing Robot; a patents pending, automated showing feedback and appointment scheduling system. Agents and prospects can schedule showings by clicking a link in the listing details, sending a text message, or by making a single phone call. Showing Robot then will automatically call, text or email all of the involved parties to confirm the showings before notifying the showing agent or buyer with showing information. Showing Robot operates using cloud-based technology that electronically schedules and confirms showing appointments; eliminating the possibility of human error from call-center employees. Rick Bengson, Showing Suite CEO states, "The future is not by having onshore and offshore call centers schedule home showing appointments for buyers and Buyers Agents.

Our system is quicker to use, a fraction of the cost, and provides better showing and feedback documentation than any other system. Now a buyer will see a sign with a number to text, they will receive a text back with a link to a calendar with the property flyer MLS info and available times to choose from, click the chosen time, and everyone is contacted and the buyer will receive a text back confirming their showing within minutes. Or an agent can call or text in an MLS number and the desired showing appointment time and be quickly sent back the confirmation and showing instructions. It's fast and saves time and money". Showing Robot features include: Versions for an individual agent, team, office, or MLS. Full ShowingSuite.com functionality for showing and feedback management. Lockbox integration which sends automated feedback anytime a lockbox is opened. iPhone, iPad and Android apps for scheduling and confirming showing appointments, viewing showing and feedback reports, etc. Fully customizable default messages that will be added to the appointment text, email, and Robot voice call for the scheduling party.
