RISMEDIA, October 8, 2010—RE/MAX of New Jersey has announced the launch of over 27,000 Smarter Agent real estate search applications across every mobile platform. The result is that each of its 3,000 agents and brokers can give an application to any of their customers – no matter what phone they have – uniquely branded with the agent’s name, the company reports.
According to the company, RE/MAX of New Jersey sells approximately 20% of all homes in New Jersey through 180 offices and 3,000 agents. “RE/MAX prides itself on its agent-centric business model. We have made significant investments in technology to ensure that each agent and office has their own mobile app to ensure maximum public exposure of their client’s properties. The result is that client properties are not just promoted through the hundreds of office websites and thousands of agent websites but now by both PC and all mobile phones,” said Jeff Snyder, RE/MAX of New Jersey Co-Owner.
According to RE/MAX of New Jersey, it has achieved two significant innovations with this launch:
1) RE/MAX of New Jersey, with 3,000 Agents in over 180 offices across the state, is one of the first real estate companies in New Jersey to offer access to all listings provided by the state’s nine MLSs to virtually every cell phone user.
2) RE/MAX of New Jersey is also one of the first companies in the nation that is providing all of its offices and agents with their own personalized mobile apps for a myriad of mobile phone types from Blackberry, Android, Palm, and iPhone as well as providing their agents with hard-to-get apps for feature phones across all major carriers that make up over 50% of phones used by homebuyers. A mobile browser app is also included. This means RE/MAX of New Jersey agents can empower all of their prospects and clients with an award-winning application for any phone type.
Smarter Agent is a mobile software company for the real estate industry and is one of the most recognized and fastest growing mobile firms in the U.S. Its technology makes the experience easy for both the agent and the homebuyer.
RE/MAX Mobile can be downloaded for free from the major app stores including the iPhone App Store, BlackBerry App World, Android Marketplace, and the Palm App Catalog; from RE/MAX of New Jersey’s website www.remax-nj.com; or by texting REMAXNJ to 87778. You can also get the application from any RE/MAX broker or agent, which will be customized to that broker or agent.
The RE/MAX Mobile app offers various search options including GPS, when available, to see the price and photos of any home for sale in the Multiple Listing Service. Users can also search by address, city or zip code to see property details including price, square footage, estimated mortgage, taxes, features, maps, pictures and more. The “Refine Search” feature lets users select a price range, property type and the number of beds and baths to help them find just what they’re looking for.
If a user has questions or wants a tour of the property, the “Call” feature connects the user to a RE/MAX of New Jersey associate, regardless of who listed the property. Interested homebuyers already working with a RE/MAX of New Jersey agent can download their agent’s personalized app to view all MLS listings and stay connected to their agent.
