Howard Hanna's Find It First Program Expands to Buffalo
Buffalo, NY (October 17, 2019) – The Howard Hanna online real estate search differentiator, Find It First is now available in Buffalo. "Ohio was the first area where we offered the Find it First experience to consumers. We rolled out the program to our Ohio offices in June and it was so successful that we expanded it to Pennsylvania and Michigan in September, and now to western New York state," said President of Real Estate Brokerage Howard W. "Hoby" Hanna, IV. The Find It First program allows Howard Hanna agents to market a seller's home for sale exclusively on on the company's website, HowardHanna.com before it hits the open market. In June, HowardHanna.com set a record with more than 2 million visits and in July, that number grew to 2.1 million website visits. August was on track to be even higher reported Jennifer Reider, Director of Digital Marketing at Howard Hanna. "Find it First™ is another great way we help our customers Move Faster!" said Hanna. "Before it's listed anywhere else, buyers can Find it First™ listings on HowardHanna.com/FindItFirst. We are giving back localized control to our sellers. Buyers coming to HowardHanna.com will see new Find it First™ listings as soon they are entered online by our agents, and before they are posted on other real estate portals such as Zillow." "The real estate industry suffers from a constrained inventory, forcing brokers to get creative in order to address the needs and expectations of home buyers who are working with their agents," said Victor Lund, President of the WAV Group. "Howard Hanna has created a solution with Find It First™. Agents and consumers are informed of a new listing, available only on their website – HowardHanna.com, for a set time before it makes its way to the multiple-listing service. However, making it to the MLS is not always the case as in the first month of the Find It First™ program, 55 homes sold right away," added Lund. More than 76,000 Howard Hanna customers are registered for Hanna HomeFinder, an automated email service that alerts them when new listings that meet their personal criteria become available for sale. Hanna HomeFinder can also provide open house and price change email alerts. "In today's real estate market, buyers know they can't take their time when looking for a home, particularly in a popular neighborhood; many homes sell within a day or just a few hours of being listed, many have multiple offers, etc. Find it First™ is a win-win for buyers. They will be able to get information on new listings directly from the source, in real time, at HowardHanna.com," said Hanna. "It's a win-win for sellers, too, as it creates an urgency for their property to be offered first to highly motivated buyers (and agents), who are most likely to bring an offer." To support the Find it First™ program, Howard Hanna's award-winning, in-house marketing agency has created a dynamic campaign that can be seen online and in print, and on billboards, highlighting the message, "Before it's listed anywhere else, Find it First™, only on HowardHanna.com."

Century 21 Relaunches Spanish Language Website
Reimagined Spanish Website Speaks Authentically to Hispanic Homebuyers/Sellers MADISON, N.J., Sept. 12, 2017 -- As part of an ongoing effort to better connect and interact with the cross-cultural makeup of the many diverse Hispanic communities in the United States and around the globe, Century 21 Real Estate LLC today announced a relaunch of its Spanish website, espanol.century21.com. The foundation of the new 'look and feel' pays careful attention to tone, simplicity and delivering relevant content and imagery to create an authentic, one-stop experience that helps guide the Hispanic community, a vitally important segment to housing and to economies as a whole, through their entire homebuying and selling journey. "Our user research showed that the relationship bond between real estate agents and Hispanic home buying and selling clients is built on trust, and an affinity and understanding of the dramatic cultural disparities within this dynamic consumer segment," said Cara Whitley, chief marketing officer, Century 21 Real Estate LLC. "Ultimately, the driving force behind the relaunch of espanol.century21.com was to connect Latino and Latina home buyers and sellers with C21® Hispanic agents and those who speak Spanish to help provide better outcomes to clients and customers who view the home not just an asset, but also as the center and future of their families." Just last year, the iconic C21 brand released a 2016 Millward Brown consumer survey that showed that the Latino Community at large and Hispanic Millennials endorse Century 21 Real Estate significantly higher than the competition. In addition, the survey found that 70% of Hispanics are most likely to consider CENTURY 21® the next time they decide to buy or sell a home, and are most likely to recommend the CENTURY 21 brand to someone else. Looking ahead, CENTURY 21 is continuing its long-standing relationship with the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP), including today's general session at the NAHREP National Convention where president and CEO Nick Bailey will speak about how the leading global franchisor is helping to advance the mission of the Hispanic Wealth Project. Bailey is announcing a new C21® mentorship program to help Spanish women become real estate entrepreneurs called, "Empowering Latinas" and a Hispanic influencer program that authentically speaks to Spanish millennials about the home buying and selling process. "Our efforts are more than simply translating English into 'Spanglish' or focusing only on cultural nuances--it's an authentic mix of visuals, copy and overall storytelling that is intrinsically connecting Hispanics to the C21® brand," added Whitley. "By featuring Spanish-speaking Americans in familiar, real-world settings in the language that helps Hispanics remain connected to their culture, we are showing how we understand their needs intimately and value the tremendous impact they are having on our industry, the economy and the nation as a whole." About Century 21 Real Estate LLC Century 21 Real Estate LLC is comprised of approximately 7,450 independently owned and operated franchised broker offices in 79 countries and territories worldwide with more than 115,000 independent sales professionals. Century 21 Real Estate has numerous websites to help answer specific consumer needs.
