Bronx, NY (PRWEB) February 11, 2011
Fillmore Real Estate, New York City’s largest privately-owned and operated real estate firm, today announced that it is unveiling its fully upgraded Website --- http://www.fillmore.com -- at its annual awards ceremony. Honorary guest and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz will push the “launch button” to officially introduce the revised site. The event will take place this evening at The Riviera in Coney Island, New York.
Among the improvements to Fillmore’s web site are: an expanded neighborhood content section to correlate with each property, including custom descriptions of each area from the Brooklyn real estate agent’s point of view rather than publicly available information; high-quality professional photos taken by Fillmore; and detailed community statistics, charts and graphs. The site will also feature mapping tools and detailed directions and the ability for the consumer to add private comments about the properties they have viewed and then save them for future retrieval during their search. Fillmore has also added the capability to share a listing through Facebook, Twitter, My Space and Google, so that the consumer can have a more interactive experience.
“Fillmore prides itself on its continual investment in its agents and in the technology needed to provide the consumer the value-added service that they cannot get on their own,” says Fillmore’s President and Chief Executive Officer John P. Reinhardt
The technology investment does not end with the Website. Fillmore also recently updated its internal “Agent Dashboard” platform, ensuring the back-end technology is just as updated for its agents. Additional upgrades to http://www.fillmore.com are also planned in the near future, including the availability of 12 languages for consumers’ home searches on the Website by this spring.
The awards ceremony will recognize approximately 110 agents in 11 categories. “Our brokers are the best in the industry,” says Reinhardt. “The company has enjoyed extremely strong numbers and it’s a result of their hard work and dedication.”
