RISMEDIA, January 4, 2011—Real estate brokerage technology provider, Terabitz announced the launch of www.ywgcrealty.com (Yerman Witman Gaines & Conklin Realty). It is the latest Terabitz-powered website developed for a leading multi-office U.S. brokerage. “We launched 40 new sites in 2010 in addition to signing our first 53 office international real estate client,” states Ash Munshi, founder and President of Terabitz. “Every one of our sites is helping position our clients for success in today’s volatile and consumer-centric environment.”
According to the company, Yerman Witman Gaines & Conklin Realty is a 200 agent, seven office firm in Baltimore, M.D. and member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. William Yerman, CEO of The Strata Group, parent company of YWGC, recently hosted a technology rally where he announced several technology based initiatives, including their new Terabitz Web platform, to rave reviews from agents.
“Our team has worked very hard over the past 18 months to be viewed as the innovation leader in the markets we serve,” says Yerman. “As a result, we have doubled in size and are poised to have another great year in 2011. Our new Terabitz website, combined with an outsourced Internet lead management call center we simultaneously engaged, allows us to leverage our leadership position and provide agents and consumers with what they are looking for today.”
Terabitz already boasted industry leaders such as @properties (Chicago), Intero Real Estate Services (Silicon Valley), Illustrated Properties (West Palm Beach), and Frontdoor.com (national portal) as clients. In 2010, the company focused its efforts on finding ways to increase clients’ online ROI as well as solidifying its leadership role in the fragmented real estate Web design and development field.
In addition to the impressive number of multi-office brokerages adopting their enterprise platforms, Terabitz has also expanded its relationship with sales and marketing partner, PCMS Consulting (www.pcmsconsulting.com). The plan is to continue growing client base, enhancing client support, and developing new products, some of which will be rolled out in early 2011.
PCMS Consulting President and industry veteran, Jose Perez, is bullish on 2011.
“Brokerages realize that with 90% of consumers starting their real estate search online, they must have effective ways to drive, engage, and respond to that traffic. Terabitz is the linchpin for our Internet Solutions Group because it helps brokerages cover all those bases. It’s no longer possible to view these tasks separately; it is part of one integrated Internet marketing strategy.”
Terabitz’s Munshi adds, “As our relationship with PCMS Consulting continues to expand, we are poised not only to sign new brokerage clients, but to offer more modules that will help clients with recruiting, social media, and lead management.” By offering more tools and services under its already comprehensive platform, Terabitz believes it can not only help clients capture more business, but also save them money because they don’t have to source and deal with multiple technology vendors.
