Enhanced lead alert service notifies real estate agents of buyer interest on their cell phone.

We're excited to be a part of their mobile strategy.

CellSigns, Inc., the leading provider of interactive mobile applications for the real estate industry, announced that Homes.com, a national real estate portal, has recently launched CellSigns' text messaging alert system. Homes.com real estate agent customers who receive inquiries on their listings by email will now receive a text message with lead information on their cell phone. The information submitted by an interested homebuyer on Homes.com will be delivered to the agent's cell phone within seconds, allowing the agent to respond immediately. Over 2 million homebuyers visit the Homes.com portal each month where they can view over 1 million listings of homes for sale. The CellSigns system will help agents with listings on Homes.com respond to inquiries faster when away from their computer so they can close more business.

"The text message alert system is a win-win solution for both agents and homebuyers. Agents can now respond more quickly to listing inquiries and homebuyers will get immediate attention to their requests. We're pleased to bring this new technology to our customers and will continue to find better ways of connecting agents to homebuyers," remarked Jamie Clymer, VP/General Manager of Homes.com.

Homes.com is a leader in Real Estate who has their pulse on the consumer." said Mark Ford, CEO CellSigns "We're excited to be a part of their mobile strategy."

The CellSigns system does not require the agents to have any special device or equipment, just a cellular phone. All the homebuyer information is sent via a SMS/text message. Agents respond to inquiries via email or a click-to-call feature from their cell phone. Text messaging in the US recently surpassed over 12 billion messages a month and continues to grow every month.
