Our new app increases the exposure of Engel & Völkers’ premier services and properties to the growing number of iPad users who are researching their real estate markets, locally and globally.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
Engel & Völkers USA today introduced the new EV Mobile Real Estate Application for the iPad®, extending its distinct brand among the growing number of users searching for homes, digitally.
The new Engel & Völkers iPad app, now available free from the Apple App Store, improves the home search experience with wider search functionality and the iPad’s high-definition graphic capability. Users can search by address, MLS number, zip code, and GPS and view high quality photography of the home’s exterior and interior rooms. The app provides unique home views and up to 40 categories of additional location-based information such as schools, restaurants, banks and stores. The app also allows users to create a list of Favorites to save selected properties for future reference and offers a one tap connection with an Engel & Völkers real estate advisor to learn more about a particular listing.
“Tablet and mobile innovations happen quickly and often. Our mobile strategy, which is a critical part of our overall marketing efforts, is to be innovating along with digital trends that make living and working more engaging for our clients and our agents,” said Anthony Hitt, Chief Operating Officer of Engel & Völkers USA. “Our new app increases the exposure of Engel & Völkers’ premier services and properties to the growing number of iPad users who are researching their real estate markets, locally and globally.”
The EV iPad app is one of several mobile device tools created by Engel & Völkers, which includes the EV Mobile app for iPhones®, Android® and Blackberry® and the wide use of QR codes in marketing Engel & Völkers properties.
The Engel & Völkers brand is recognized as a leading provider of high quality real estate services in over 400 prime market locations in 35 countries worldwide. “The high level of service we provide remains consistent wherever our brand is present, whether it’s our expanding network of office locations globally or through our growing digital presence,” said Hitt.
