RISMEDIA, October 20, 2010—Goomzee Corporation, a provider of mobile technology solutions that connects buyers and sellers, announced that it has agreed with the California Regional MLS (CRMLS) to provide its product, Realty Connect, to their customers to allow Southern California home buyers to receive real estate listing information on their cell phone.
According to a release, with the contract signing of California Regional MLS, representing nearly 33,000 Southern California Realtors, Goomzee’s MLS footprint in the United States now exceeds 120,000 MLS subscribers or approximately ten percent (10%) of America’s Realtors.
According to the company, Goomzee’s Realty Connect helps connect buyers and sellers using text messaging and integrates with MLS data systems. Agents place signs or ads regarding a property for sale that prompts potential buyers to send a text message with a unique property ID code. Within seconds the buyer receives a text message response containing property information and pricing. The buyer then has the option to receive and view photos of the listing immediately on their phone. At the same time, the agent is notified of the buyer’s inquiry. Automated tools and responders then help the agent cultivate those leads and begin to establish a relationship with the buyer.
“We continually seek out the best technology tools and providers for our customers and are pleased to offer Goomzee’s industry-leading text-message advertising and call capture tool. More home buyers are relying on technology for information when buying a home, and CRMLS recognizes the need to empower the real estate sales professional with useful technology to reach today’s buyer, especially on their mobile phones,” explains Art Carter, CEO of CRMLS.
Goomzee’s CEO, Mike Sparr, commented, “reaching approximately 10 percent of America’s Realtors in today’s economy is a monumental task, and achievement, and I’m very proud of everybody at Goomzee. We could not have reached this milestone without the trust and support of leading MLS organizations like CRMLS. We’re very excited to introduce our mobile technology to real estate professionals throughout Southern California and continue delivering high value to agents, sellers and buyers as we expand our U.S. real estate market footprint.”
Goomzee and CRMLS aim to launch Realty Connect in Southern California by year’s end.
