Weichert Announces Redesign of Weichert.com for Enhanced Customer Experience
Weichert, Realtors is pleased to announce the first phase launch of the much-anticipated redesign of Weichert.com. With a fresh homepage, new search capabilities and engaging property detail pages, this initial release is the first of many to come during the months ahead. With more than half of current traffic to Weichert.com coming from mobile devices, the redesign also takes a mobile-first approach to enhance the search experience for consumers on the go. "Weichert is passionate about ensuring our customers have the best digital experience possible," said James Weichert Jr., vice chairman of Weichert Companies. "The redesign of Weichert.com features simpler navigation and new page layouts that are easier to read. In addition, the property listings now provide a higher level of personalization – something customers want when searching for information online. Weichert is dedicated to catering to our customers' needs, and this redesign is yet another way we are meeting that goal." According to the 2018 National Association of REALTORS® Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends Report, 95 percent of all homebuyers use online websites during their home search process. The Weichert.com redesign features several key components to make that process easy, fun and informative: Weichert.com's new home page offers simpler navigation for users to easily find what they are looking for, plus intuitive new search capabilities for homes, rentals, sales associates and offices. Property listings are immediately displayed with more personalization, including relevance to a user's location, with an additional focus on open houses and recently listed properties. The new search results page now offers the ability to swipe through property photos without leaving the page. New and updated maps more clearly display property locations and nearby listings, and easy-to-use filters allow users to apply both basic and lifestyle needs such as waterfront, park view, balcony, doorman, roof deck and more to their home searches. New property detail pages on Weichert.com feature page layouts that make it easier to read and find information. Updated forms and interactive calculators allow users to better understand affordability and request more information from a Weichert sales associate. Additional updates to Weichert.com will begin rolling out in 2019 with a continued focus on the digital experience for users.

Elm Street Technology Poised for Growth, Launches Elevate for Real Estate
GREENSBORO, NC--(Oct 11, 2016) - Two best-in-class acquisitions, including one of the most established real estate marketing brands used by millions of consumers -- Listingbook, has catapulted Elm Street Technology into the real estate industry spotlight. Headed by a team of well-known real estate industry entrepreneurs, Prem Luthra and Randall Kaplan, Elm Street Technology today launches Elevate™, a new Digital Marketing System that uses advanced automation to move Elm Street Technology towards delivering "everything real estate agents and brokers need for new leads and client-for-life retention, all in one place." "Elevate offers brokers and agents a single digital marketing platform with all of the outstanding features that millions of consumers who've used Listingbook love," Luthra, President of Elm Street Technology says. "Elevate includes Listingbook's powerful client servicing platform with best-in-class MLS-powered listing search for home shoppers, access to public records, recent and past sales information, community and school details, taxes, loan calculator, shopping and recreation, and much more," he adds. Luthra notes Elevate also introduces advanced automation that delivers custom Blogs, automated listing postings to social media channels, automated YouTube property tour videos, and beautifully designed, mobile responsive agent and property IDX websites embedded with the best-in-class lead generation technology, all from a single vendor. "With Elevate, Elm Street Technology begins to solve one of the biggest challenges for real estate brokers and agents: The marketing technologies they use to promote listings and their businesses don't talk to each other. Elevate moves brokers and agents onto one digital marketing system, from one vendor, and that means only one phone call for support. Now that's an industry first," Luthra says. Luthra, who founded Elm Street Technology in February with a group of investors, added Randall Kaplan as its Chairman through its first acquisition, Listingbook, the real estate industry's proven lead nurturing and client servicing platform that allows consumers to "search like an agent." In September, Elm Street also acquired RLS2000, a top broker and agent website provider and marketing services firm based in New England. According to Luthra, Elm Street Technology is in the process of rolling up other successful technology and marketing services companies. "We will be able to deliver everything a broker or agent needs from lead generation, to customer for life retention solutions," he says. Prior to pursuing his vision of creating Elm Street Technology, Luthra served as Chief Marketing Officer at Xome. He also was the Co-Founder and Chief Revenue Officer for Real Estate Digital, which became a wholly owned subsidiary of Xome. Luthra was also the Chief Strategy and Sales Officer for LPS Real Estate Group, and Senior Vice President of Consumer Media at Move Inc. Randall Kaplan has quietly established a daunting track record of innovatively creating, rapidly growing and skillfully selling a number of businesses that stretch across multiple industries. He started out running Kay Chemical Company, a leading supplier to McDonald's and other fast food franchises, which was merged into Ecolab, the world's largest institutional chemical company. As an entrepreneur, he started, grew and sold a number of businesses, including Sterling South Bank, now the Bank of North Carolina. He also bought most of Listingbook and became its President in 2006. Elevate is powered by Listingbook and fully integrates all of its features with RLS2000's powerful automated marketing services and best-in-class websites to deliver one source for new leads, client management and client-for-life retention. Product pricing information for agents, teams and brokerage licensing is available by calling Elm Street Technology toll-free at 1-866-353-3456 or visit www.elmstreettechnology.com.

NRT Launches New Consumer Website that Leverages the Power of Their Brand
  The power of a franchise lies in the combination of a strong national brand and a strong regional presence through franchisees. This is how franchises from McDonalds to Hilton succeed. You have a franchisee who knows and cares about the local area combined with a brand that's big enough to be known nationally. It can be a winning combination. NRT LLC, the largest residential real estate brokerage company in the US, recently capitalized on that winning combination with the launch of their new consumer website ColdwellBankerHomes.com. The site combines 17 regional brokers' sites into one unified force that now represents 50 of the largest 100 US metropolitan areas. So now instead of independent sites, brokers can enjoy the benefit of a larger online footprint and all the traffic, resources, and other benefits that brings. This new site is also follows the latest industry trends of creating sites that are mobile-first. After the Inman conference earlier this month, it became apparent that real estate consumers are doing a majority of their home shopping through a handheld device. National portals like Zillow are seeing 2/3rds of their online traffic coming from mobile. With these numbers, it's crucial to have a site that is mobile-optimized. ColdwellBankerHomes.com utilizes local information from Onboard Informatics including community profiles, city and school reports. They also utilize our partner Maponics for their boundaries. The information on the site goes beyond those elements however, and includes MLS property listings, virtual tours, interactive maps, and tips for buying and selling a home. They have created an interactive, engaging online experience. For more information on how your company might benefit from the best in local and property information, contact us today.

Placester Websites Now Has 95 Percent of Agent IDX Coverage in United States
BOSTON, MA--(June 12, 2015) - Placester, the real estate marketing platform, announced today that it has hit a series of key milestones, including covering 95 percent of the agent IDX in the United States. The achievement illustrates how Placester continues to dramatically improve the home listing and buying process for agents, brokers, and consumers by connecting real estate professionals to a turnkey marketing automation solution. Placester's technology is designed to make sincere connections between real estate professionals and consumers looking to buy or sell homes. To date, Placester integrates with 561 MLSs and more than 1,100 REALTOR® associations across the country. This extends Placester's potential reach to approximately 1.9 million active real estate licensees in the United States, including over one million REALTORS®. "Covering 95 percent of MLSs is an incredible feat for the Placester team but what's most important is the impact this news has on REALTORS® across the country," said Matt Barba, CEO, Placester. "When we launched Placester, our goal was to use technology to improve the connections between real estate professionals and the clients they serve. Both in the number of listings available to them and in the technologies that we've poured into the platform -- from lead generation to elegant design -- Placester is improving the home buying and selling process for everyone. "Because Placester places such emphasis on value to real estate professionals, about 90 percent of the MLSs it covers come with no surcharge. For example, in Michigan, Placester is a preferred vendor for Realcomp II, the state's largest MLS which serves more than 12,000 broker, agent and appraiser customers in more than 2,100 offices. Realcomp II members can set up Placester sites without MLS surcharges the need to request and complete IDX documents. Other large MLSs with no surcharge on Placester include California (CRMLS), Florida (MFRMLS) and Georgia (GAMLS). Placester websites are priced affordably at $10 per month, and a special partnership with NAR discounts sites for REALTORS® to $5 per month.

.REALTOR Top-Level Domains Will Soon be Available to Realtor® Associations and Brokerages
  WASHINGTON, April 16, 2015 -- The National Association of Realtors® top-level domain .REALTOR will be available to local and state Realtor® associations as well as brokerages in the U.S. and Canada starting May 7. NAR was one of the first associations approved to offer a top-level domain and among the first in the real estate industry to commit to this new technology. Since the .REALTOR top-level domain became available to NAR members in October 2014, more than 95,000 domains have been claimed. Now boards, associations and brokerages will have the opportunity to register for the domain, which lets consumers instantly know that they are working within the Realtor® community, the most trusted source for real estate information and with agents who subscribe to NAR's strict Code of Ethics. As the Internet begins to evolve and divide into industry-specific categories, NAR believes it's important for the Realtor® community to lead the industry and create an exclusive namespace for itself that consumers instantly recognize. "Early adoption of new technology is a vital part of how Realtors® conduct business, and NAR is committed to staying on the forefront of the latest online tools," said NAR President Chris Polychron, executive broker with 1st Choice Realty in Hot Springs, Ark. "We hope associations and brokerages can take advantage of the .REALTOR domain to create an online space where home buyers, sellers and investors, as well as Realtors®, can go to find the most trustworthy, reliable real estate services and resources." NAR has also entered into an exclusive marketing partnership with the Canadian Real Estate Association, the exclusive licensors of the Realtor® mark in Canada. CREA associations and boards will also be able to use the domain to provide consumers in Canada with the same advantages. NAR made an early commitment to adopt this technology and began applying for the .REALTOR top-level domain eight years ago through the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the organization that coordinates domains and Internet Protocol addresses around the world. Throughout the entire process, NAR worked closely with Second Generation subsidiary Real Estate Domains, LLC, an investment firm and registry operator for the top-level domain .JOBS. For more information on claiming the .REALTOR domain, which is available to associations and brokerages starting May 7 at 10 a.m. CDT, visit www.about.REALTOR. The Canadian Real Estate Association is one of Canada's largest single-industry trade associations, representing more than 111,000 Realtors® working through some 90 real estate boards and associations. Second Generation Ltd ("Second Gen"), headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, is an Embrescia family investment firm that actively works with talented management teams to develop businesses that have potential for significant growth and long-term value. For over three decades, Second Gen and its affiliates have owned and operated FCC licensed radio and television properties super serving markets throughout the United States as well as investing in manufacturing, real estate and medical innovations. Among its diverse investments, Second Gen is the owner of the .JOBS top-level domain on the Internet sponsored by the Society for Human Resource Management. The National Association of Realtors®, "The Voice for Real Estate," is America's largest trade association, representing 1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries. Information about NAR is available at www.realtor.org. This and other news releases are posted in the "News, Blogs and Videos" tab on the website.

iHomefinder Launches Responsive IDX for Custom Websites
Berkeley, CA November 21, 2014 – iHomefinder, a leading provider of IDX solutions for real estate agents and brokerages, announced today that with the release of the responsive version of Optima IDX, all of its products are now fully responsive. With the rapid growth of mobile real estate searches, real estate professionals have scrambled to meet consumer demand for mobile-friendly IDX content. Initially, web designers created separate mobile versions of real estate websites. This evolved to responsive website designs which serve content based on the consumer's device type, be it a smart phone, tablet, or a personal computer. For the 50% of today's buyers searching for homes on mobile devices (source: NAR), agents serving content responsively are well-positioned to offer a better user experience and decrease costs. The new, responsive version of Optima IDX maintains all of the existing functionality while adding responsive functionality that benefits the consumer's search experience. Optima IDX provides dynamic, indexable IDX content directly on an agent or broker's site, with or without framing. The responsive version of Optima IDX will further contribute to SEO by keeping mobile traffic on an agent or broker's site, instead of redirecting to a mobile-only site. "iHomefinder's responsive IDX is perfect for agents with responsive sites, which is the growing trend in real estate web design", said Dana Ehrenkrantz, CEO of iHomefinder affiliate partner, Market Me. "As a web designer, it has made my job easier to implement and gives me time to focus on more important tasks. iHomefinder's responsive products eliminate the need for a separate mobile site, which in the long run can save an agent money." "For agents and brokers, responsive design is a necessity, not just a trend," said Brett DeSchepper, CEO of iHomefinder. "Aside from providing an SEO advantage, it simply makes sense to have one website that supports the consumer's device of choice."

Terabitz Solidifies Position as Leading Boutique Web Developer for Real Estate Brokerages
Los Altos Hills, CA, November 5, 2014 -- Terabitz, the leading web marketing platform developer for real estate brokerages, announces two new real estate websites. Smith and Associates of Tampa, FL (www.smithandassociates.com) and Laffey Fine Homes of Long Island, NY (www.laffey.com). Both real estate brokerages picked Terabitz for their combination of a robust technology backbone and customizable, full-featured marketing outreach tools for agents and their clients. Stephanie Streeter is Director of Technology for Smith & Associates, a high-end, multi-office brokerage in the Tampa-St. Petersburg market, and was the lead in her company's decision to engage Terabitz: "After experiencing disappointments with previous vendors, we made it a priority to do a very detailed review when choosing a new direction. In the end, we chose Terabitz because, like us, they are a flexible boutique firm willing to provide the high level of customization we would require. Unlike our last provider who over-promised and under-delivered, Terabitz has become a true partner who implements any customization quickly and at very reasonable rates. As an added bonus, the team is a pleasure to work with." Laffey Fine Home of Long Island chose Terabitz because the boutique web developer had the know-how and experience to take their real estate website and turn it into a more consumer-friendly, revenue-driving online marketing platform. While their website was already ranked number one in the Long Island market, its prior web developer was incapable of further developing their website to keep pace with current technology trends nor broaden their online brand's footprint. "Being number one is a good thing; however, the only place you can move from number one is down to number two" said Emmett Laffey, Managing Broker and Principal of Laffey Fine Homes of Long Island. "I knew it was time to make the move to Terabitz in order to further grow our online presence and to widen the gap between us and number two." Terabitz offers three separate starter packages that then provide the foundation for brokerages to build their custom online marketing platform. These packages vary based on layout parameters, depth and complexity of the IDX search, and the amount of customization. One major differentiator is Terabitz' neighborhood search feature. Neighborhood search creates multiple map layers that enables consumers to drill down and receive specific information based on the neighborhood they want to live in. Terabitz was founded in 2006 by Ashfaq Munshi. Munshi is a Silicon Valley veteran who realized early on that local real estate brokerages would need powerful online marketing tools to help combat the footprint left by national real estate portals like Trulia and Zillow. Munshi founded Terabitz with the intention of providing state-of-the-art real estate home search, real estate lead management, and online marketing modules. Terabitz quickly caught the attention of brokerages looking for the technology and service that out-of-the-box, templated website vendors couldn't offer. Since 2006, the company has continued to innovate. It recently introduced its unique mobile home search platform, HouseTouch, which was specifically designed for tablets and smart phones. Other new technology developments include its CRM and marketing analytics platform, Teraleads. ABOUT TERABITZ Terabitz is a technology company located in the heart of Silicon Valley founded by tech industry veteran and real estate consumer Ashfaq Munshi. Terabitz is focused on helping brokerage clients be more competitive with the large real estate portals so that brokers view their web platform as a profit center that drives and engages an ever more savvy internet consumer. ABOUT PCMS PCMS Consulting provides real estate brokerage services that transform their clients into market leaders and proven profit centers.

Is WebsiteBox Too Good To Be True? Here is What Realtor® Courtney Drennon Has to Say!
This week in our Too Good To Be True series we have Courtney Drennon, a Realtor® from Olympia, WA who was really surprised when she found out that she could have a real estate website with IDX for a one-time-fee of $99. In this interview she explains the importance of having her own branded website and being able to promote yourself effectively without having to depend solely on her company website. Rui: Please introduce yourself, how long have you been in real estate? Courtney: Courtney Kelley Drennon, I've been in the business for over 10 years. Rui: Did you have a website before WebsiteBox? How much were you paying? Courtney: I used to rely solely on my company website, but soon realized I wanted to be able to brand myself apart from my bio and contact page on the company website. With WebsiteBox I can feature only my listings, and market just myself. Rui: What was your first reaction when you heard about the $99 price? Did you think it was too good to be true? Courtney: Yes, I was impressed that for such a cheap price I could have a perfectly functioning, great looking website. Rui: What WebsiteBox feature do you like most? Courtney: Being able to have IDX access for my local listing provider is huge for me. My website automatically updates when the listing service does. So I never have to worry whether or not listings that come up on one of my many search options are updated. My clients can access the multiple listing service essentially directly through my website. Rui: Would you recommend WebsiteBox to other Realtors®? Courtney: Yes, for the price you can't beat it. Easy to operate both as the owner of the domain and easy for clients to navigate. Rui: How has WebsiteBox improved your business? Courtney: It's been great to help build my brand. I use social media sites to frequently share my website, which gets me maximum exposure. Rui: What are your future plans for your WebsiteBox site? Courtney: I am currently working on syncing my blog to the front page of my website. Interconnecting all of my Social Media sites with my website helps drive traffic to it.

Wright Kingdom Real Estate Launches New Site with The Enterprise Network
We're excited to announce that Wright Kingdom Real Estate just released their redesigned site on our platform! Wright Kingdom was our second member to join The Enterprise Network back in 2005. This is their third site on our platform. Wright Kingdom is based in Boulder, Colorado and has been serving the area since 1976. With 90 agents in two offices, they're the largest independent brokerage in the area due to their commitment to delivering old-fashioned service combined with the latest technology available in the industry. As an early adopter of technology releases on our platform, Wright Kingdom is able to grow their business through technology and differentiate themselves from others in the market by having tools not available anywhere else in their market. "We've worked with Wright Kingdom for close to 10 years. The type of camaraderie we share is not often found in business and we feel fortunate to work with such an innovative and forward-thinking brokerage. Through our platform and the new releases on their site, we're helping to increase standards for the Real Estate Industry and create a more positive user experience, all while pushing the boundaries of innovation," states Ido Zucker, managing partner at booj. Because repeat business and referrals make up more than 80% of Wright Kingdom's busines, the needs of their customers were kept at the forefront of their redesign. Wright Kingdom focused on streamlining usability by simplifying their navigation, giving prominent placement to search capabilities, and providing quick and easy access to saved searches, favorited properties and more. The site is also fully responsive, ensuring optimal performance no matter the device. Other highlights of the new site include: Single Scrolling Homepage The homepage features one page scrolling to highlight information relevant to the home buying and selling process. Without having to leave the page, users get easy access to quick search technology, community pages, and important tools on their site including email alerts, map search, market snapshot and more. Custom Search Tabs Wright Kingdom enhanced their home search to allow users to quickly and efficiently find homes in and around Boulder and surrounding communities. Leveraging their responsive layout, they created easy-to-view tabs along the top of the search forms so customers can find properties that best fit their individual needs. As a user selects their desired criteria, Wright Kingdom's property counter updates users with the number of properties that match their search. Enhanced Search Results To make it easier for users to identify properties that are newly listed, under contract, or sold, listings that fall into these categories are marked with color-coded banners. Maponics Community Data Integration Wright Kingdom integrated Maponics community data for all community pages in order to provide important neighborhood information such as population, lifestyle and commute data. Through Maponics, they're also able to provide contextual information on housing inventory in the area. Latest App Release Along with the launch of their new site, Wright Kingdom released the newest update to our suite of mobile apps. This version of the app allows agents to to promote agent branded apps through a custom URL or QR code. The new apps also include sold data dating back up to 2 years! "We are very excited to be launching our new fully responsive website and our new suite of apps. The recent advances in mobile technology have led to an emphasis on mobile search tools and the importance of creating a seamless user experience on any device or desktop. These new products raise the bar in our market for mobile search and position our agents as the go-to source for accurate, up-to-date listing and market data." - Jeremiah Daly, eCommerce Director, Wright Kingdom Real Estate These are just a few highlights from Wright Kingdom's new site. We encourage you all to check out all the great enhancements for yourself by visiting them online at www.wkre.com. To view the original article, visit The Enterprise Network blog.

Terabitz Relaunches Leading Local Websites to Compete with National Portals
Leading web marketing platform provider, Terabitz, today announced the re-launch of several local real estate websites owned by long-time clients, CENTURY 21 Award of San Diego, CA and Better Homes and Gardens Gary Greene in Houston, TX. Both brokerages have long-term relationships with Terabitz, and with the ongoing support of the Terabitz development team, have continued to improve their platforms over the years to better compete against both national portals and other local brokerages. David Romero, President of CENTURY 21 Award, states, "As one of the largest CENTURY 21 franchisees in the world, we believe it is incumbent upon us to have the finest local web presence in the markets we serve. Our 1000 agents depend on us to provide consumer-facing tools that allow consumers to search for neighborhoods better than they can do on the national portals. They also expect us to provide quality back-end solutions that allow them to provide enhanced service to clients when they are ready to engage the local expert. Terabitz gives us the ability to do both and that's why we have been working with them since 2008." As real estate brokerages continue to digest the future impact of the Zip Realty acquisition by Realogy and the merger of Zillow and Trulia, one thing is clear: Online consumer engagement continues to drive industry innovation. Silicon Valley veteran, Ashfaq Munshi, founded Terabitz in 2006. Munshi believed that national portals would eventually dominate, and the local brokerage, with its local expertise, would have to be given better tools to more effectively compete. States Jose Perez, Founder and President of PCMS Consulting and Terabitz' exclusive reseller, "We have been representing Terabitz since 2009. Our clients look to us to help better engage consumers in a variety of areas. Terabitz is helping lead the way with their robust SEO and search architecture, lead distribution, and data collection modules. And now with the new HouseTouch? platform, launched a few weeks ago, brokerage websites can offer the best property search experience for consumers." HouseTouch? is a completely tag and touch base mobile search specifically designed for tablets and smart phones. Homebuyers search for available homes with the touch of a finger or the swipe of the hand. Terabitz has been rolling this innovative mobile solution out to its client base. The following Terabitz clients are now running HouseTouch: Bean Group – New England  Bob Parks Realty – Middle Tennessee  CENTURY 21 VJF – Brewster, NY Coldwell Banker Pelican – Lafayette, LA ABOUT TERABITZ Terabitz is a technology company located in the heart of Silicon Valley founded by tech industry veteran and real estate consumer Ashfaq Munshi.

Real Life Agent Stories: Is WebsiteBox Too Good to Be True?
The number number one question we get asked by Realtors is "How do you guys do it? A website for $99 seems too good to be true!" Rather than me going on and on about how our product is the real deal. I would rather let our clients speak for themselves. This week on our "Too Good To Be True" series, Annie B a Realtor® from Miami, Florida talks about her past experiences with different websites, and tell us what her plans are for her new WebsiteBox website. Rui: Please introduce yourself, how long have you been in real estate? Annie: Hello all! My name is Annie B. Benalcazar and I have been in the real estate business since December 2012. Rui: Did you have a website before WebsiteBox? How much were you paying? Annie: Yes I did, I actually had two other websites before this one with different companies. For the first one, I paid $150 and that would be charged yearly. I discovered with this first one that they did not have an amazing real estate IDX like I needed it to perform, so I was on the search and then found a second company. At the time they were what I was looking for and they charged me a $99 set-up fee and $50 per month. A few months later, I then discovered WebsiteBox online and when I saw that I could benefit with everything my real estate business needed with huge savings per year, I was sold! WebsiteBox is my most beneficial and happiest choice. Rui: What was your first reaction when you heard about the $99 price? Did you think it was too good to be true? Annie: I sure did! I thought it was some website advertisement to lure you in with an amazing price that looks the part for a whole product, but then would charge you a ton of money for all other features. I am happy I was curious enough to find this treasure out. Rui: What WebsiteBox feature do you like most? Annie: I love them all. It's the complete package for everything that I need for my real estate business right now and into the future. Rui: Would you recommend WebsiteBox to other Realtors®? Annie: Yes, absolutely! Rui: How has WebsiteBox improved your business? Annie: It has given me the option of such an incredible product to share and help create happy clients who love to search for properties freely and at their own convenience in today's market. It has also given me amazing web presence throughout my marketing campaign. I always receive compliments about my website and it's a great feeling to be complimented with my website being helpful and full of useful information. Rui: What are your future plans for your WebsiteBox site? Annie: That is to be determined in the near future with created new apps and new features that I am sure will also be amazing and a great benefit to utilize. As for right now, I have customized my website exactly the way I need it for the success of my business today.

Canton, Ohio (February 25, 2014)--Delta Media Group, Inc., leaders in marketing and business solutions for real estate professionals, announced Friday the launch of a new corporate real estate website for Irongate Inc., REALTORS®, one of Ohio's largest independent real estate brokerages. Irongate wanted to offer their customer base an enhanced online user experience while streamlining systems and upgrading their marketing technology for their agents. Their new website and marketing platform accomplishes all of that and more, providing upgraded tools for their consumers, agents and management staff through Delta's integrated enterprise web platform. Irongate's elegant new website design features a vertical scrolling home screen with full screen background imagery and a hovering navigation menu which remains at the top as users scroll vertically. The new IrongateRealtors.com also features the most robust real estate search in the industry. Its central quick search auto-complete box is centrally and prominently featured on the home screen, and it automatically suggests matching cities, towns, school districts and subdivisions while searchers are typing letters. Each search suggestion is clickable, and displays how many properties are for sale in its area. The site's advanced search interface allows users to search for homes via Interactive Atlas Search powered by Google Maps, where users can click and drag their search area, then filter results by listing details as well as view thumbnail photos. The search map displays icons representing properties for sale. When clicked on, visitors will see a pop up with the listing's details, from which they can request a showing, ask questions or add the listing to their favorites. Visitors can also click to view additional information and the property image gallery. "IrongateRealtors.com gives those searching for homes in Southwest Ohio a brand new online real estate experience," Delta Media Group President Michael Minard said, "Its home search options are the most advanced in the industry, allowing Irongate and its agents to better serve their customers by helping visitors find properties for sale as quickly and efficiently as possible." Irongate's Marketing Director, Mark Stokoe, thought the timing was right for an overhaul to their corporate website. "We had not updated our site in more than five years, which is a very long time for the internet," says Mark. "The older site was wonderful in its day -- but was not as graphically engaging or technologically proficient as we wanted in 2014. Consumers indicated they wanted a simpler experience, in terms of search options, and so we listened." Perhaps the most powerful feature of IrongateRealtors.com is what visitors won't see -- its user-friendly back-end management system. The real estate website is fully integrated with Delta's automated lead platform—the most advanced real estate back-office lead management system available. DeltaNet™ gives real estate agents a customizable home screen that allows them to see their new customer leads, recent customer web activity, to-do list, calendar and more. Real estate leads captured by IrongateRealtors.com are distributed instantly through the platform, ensuring agents can follow up with inquiries as quickly and efficiently as possible. Lead notifications are distributed to agents by email and text message based on their lead qualifications, and the agent receiving each lead can log into the DeltaNet™ to follow their client's interaction and progression through their buying or selling process. Mark Stokoe explains how the new integrated platform will help Irongate administrators manage their business more efficiently. "Delta's technology allowed us to fold our company's intranet site with its public facing website, making things easier for everyone." Delta's feature rich real estate web platform not only represents an upgrade for Irongate's website visitors and back-office management staff, but also provides upgraded marketing functionality for all of Irongate's agents. The platform includes a fully integrated CRM and advanced marketing features which include an email marketing system, integrated blogging interface, integrated 5 Star Testimonials interface, social sharing features and much more. Irongate's agents also have access to Delta Media Group's mobile DeltaNet™ app. The app allows agents to access and follow up with their leads and customer database and add new customers—all from their mobile phones. The app is integrated with the platform, allowing agents to access and update customer profiles on the go. "If you have a site that pleases both the public and your agents, it's gold," says Mark. Irongate Inc., REALTORS®, Dayton's largest local independent real estate company, with almost 300 professional REALTORS® achieving more than $500 million in annual sales, offers the most comprehensive and professional real estate services available in Southwest Ohio. Irongate's suite of real estate services includes Residential, Multi-family, Farm & Acreage, and Commercial sales, Auction Assistance, Property Appraisal, Property Management, Notary and Corporate Relocation Services. The real estate brokerage operates out of six offices covering the Miami Valley, conveniently located in Beavercreek, Centerville, Englewood, Kettering, Washington Township, and Springboro Ohio. Irongate is also a Leading Real Estate Companies of the World member. "We are honored that a distinguished LeadingRE brokerage such as Irongate chose to partner with us for their corporate website development", says Delta VP Jonathan Blood, "Not only are they an Ohio customer, but a very well-respected brand nationally. A brokerage like theirs requires a cutting-edge real estate web platform that effectively balances the needs of the online consumer pool with the needs of their agents. Their customers will now get the state of the art user experience that our modern real estate website design can provide for them." Irongate's co-owner Steve Brown, the current President of the National Association of REALTORS®, explains how their relationship with Delta began at last year's National Association of Realtors conference, then blossomed into a full-scale partnership over the last few months. "We chose Delta precisely because they could offer the design and technology we were seeking in our enhancements," says Steve. "We had heard of them through our joint relationship with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, for whom they are a provider. And as we began looking, and saw what they could do, and discovered they were an Ohio company, we were thrilled with what they had to offer. That -- and the fact that during of our search we found ourselves standing next to them in a taxi line while the National Association of REALTORS® in San Francisco last Fall. Passing the time began a serious conversation, and by the time our taxi's arrived, we were all growing excited about future possibilities -- possibilities that have now become realities." The fact that Steve is the President of NAR only adds to the excitement for Delta. "Steve is an industry leader," says Jonathan Blood. "Part of the honor in having been selected by Irongate comes from the distinction of knowing that we passed Steve's test. That means quite a bit to us. Steve and his co-owner, Greg Gillen have been absolutely great to work with throughout the collaborative development process. We are very excited for this website launch and what we are hoping to be a long, successful partnership with Irongate." Irongate's co-owner Greg Gillen agrees that the partnership with Delta is off to an outstanding start, and sees the launch of the new IrongateRealtors.com as just the beginning. "The development process has been outstanding," says Greg. "Every hurdle -- and there are always hurdles when you are dealing with almost 300 agents and thousands of listings in 15 counties -- has been dealt with promptly and professionally. We are always growing, adding new agents and new markets in Southwest Ohio. Our new website and its technology will only help us achieve even greater growth." As Irongate continues to grow Greg sees their partnership with Delta growing as well. "That is one of the biggest reasons we chose to partner with Delta -- their collaborative culture mirrors our own," Greg added. "When people work well together, whether in technology or real estate, you get great results." About Delta Media Group, Inc.
