OAKLAND, CA (PRWEB) April 4, 2007

- On-demand, without any software required

"Spotlight is more cost and time effective than anything else that I've seen or used," says Taylor Lindstrom of Prudential Preferred Properties in Winnetka, Illinois. "Spotlight is appealing in many ways. A really successful Internet campaign includes a dedicated web site with domain name. Compared to other competitor products, I can have a web site for a fraction of the cost of alternative marketing plans... Spotlight has been a tremendous addition to my marketing plan."
Myrna Wright of Montana Realty Company of Red Lodge in Red Lodge, Montana plans on using Spotlight single property websites for all of her residential and commercial properties. "Spotlight has increased our number of listings but also, listen to this, we are now in negotiation for a property that has been on the market with a Spotlight website for 9 days!" says Myrna. "We received a bid from a couple that do not live in the area, because they saw the Spotlight website with all the photos and listing info- they bid on it before they had even stepped foot on the property!"
Spotlight offers a powerful method of standing out at listing presentations. "Being able to offer a Spotlight website and domain name gives me a huge advantage over my competition," says Heather Elias of Long and Foster in Northern Virginia. "I went to a listing presentation and it was between myself and another agent with a similar background, credentials, and marketing campaign. The difference was that I was offering a Spotlight website and the other agent was not. The client picked me specifically because I was offering the Spotlight website. Now I'm in contract negotiation for that listing, it sold in 45 days!" Heather credits 40% percent of her 7.4 million in production to iHOUSE and Spotlight-driven leads.
