Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2010
RealBird Inc., a leading provider of Internet marketing tools for real estate agents announced today the availability of its service in Canada and the United Kingdom. The Canadian release includes both the Property Search that accesses the Google Real Estate (Google Base) listings database and also the Listing Publisher, for creating and marketing Single Property Websites for listings. The U.K. version includes at this time the Property Search, with the Listing Publisher to be released at a later date. The cost of the service is $99/year.
The RealBird Property Search has been in use since August 2009 and has undergone since then extensive user testing with hundreds of agents who have reported great results in terms of lead generation and user satisfaction. The Property Search can be easily customized with just a few clicks to create specific search links to be added to websites, blogs, or used in standalone mode as a mini-search website. The Property Search also includes a customer login module where homebuyers can save their searches and favorite listings. An example integration can be seen at http://www.thehousepeople.com
RealBird's Listing Publisher includes tools to enable agents to market their listings and themselves not only using their own websites, but also via major real estate classified sites, blogs, Facebook, Active Rain, Twitter, etc.
Zoltan Szendro, EVP and CTO of RealBird explains: "During the past few years the real estate market has undergone profound changes, and a nice website is no longer enough for agents to generate leads. Consumers will start their home search in many diverse places, such as real estate portals like Trulia, Zillow or Google Maps, or classifieds sites such Craigslist, Oodle, or Backpage, or any of the social media sites like Facebook or ActiveRain. With our service agents can position themselves to be found on all these virtual places, at a very low cost and with little effort."
Al and Peggy Cunningham, Brokers with RE/MAX Realty Services Inc., in Brampton, Ontario ( http://www.thehousepeople.com ) are excited that RealBird have recently expanded into the Canadian market: "We have heard only positive comments about RealBird from all of our American REALTOR® friends. Our goal is always to expose our sellers' properties to the largest number of Buyers in the market. RealBird will help us in this endeavor, resulting in the sellers getting sold quick and for the maximum dollar."
RealBird's services include listing marketing and lead generation tools uniquely tailored to the needs of the residential and commercial real estate industry. The RealBird Listing Publisher provides a free, next generation Property Website builder with syndication to 3rd party classified sites and advance presentation tools. The RealBird Map-based Search service couples the traditional, form-based MLS search with the ability to browse listings on a street or aerial map.
