RISMEDIA, January 23, 2009-Obeo, a provider of full-service residential real estate online marketing products in North America, is pleased to announce a new strategic, syndication partnership with VastTM, the leading vertical search platform for real estate, autos and travel.
In order to help consumers find the properties they are looking for, Vast.com’s leading vertical search platform hosts millions of Real Estate classifieds and MLS-complaint listings. According to the company, Vast.com is a software platform – not a portal – providing real estate search to website publishers, brokers and agents.
Publisher websites powered by Vast.com provide fast, intuitive real estate search that captures the Internet home shopper’s attention and helps lead them to the home they are looking for, says the company.
Obeo’s partnership with Vast will allow customers using Obeo’s products and services to have additional online exposure for their listings and virtual tours.
“One of our goals in 2009 is to ensure that clients utilizing our services receive unprecedented value for their usage,” said Glade Jones, Obeo president and CEO. “To accomplish this, our continued effort to bring more exposure for our clients’ listings has brought forth a partnership with Vast.
“All listings on Obeo will automatically post to the Vast software platform,” Jones continued. “Overstock.com is just one of the many partner sites that Vast services. Obeo clients and consumers can be assured that when visiting our partner sites, the best visual experience will be at their fingertips.”
“Obeo’s focus on quality, detail and completeness of listings helps Vast.com achieve our mission – to provide the best possible experience to home shoppers,” said Ben Clark, general manager of Vast.com Real Estate. “Our partnership further demonstrates a trend in the industry to provide consumers everywhere with the most complete, accessible real estate search possible.”
