This partnership with Updater is another step toward our goal of perfecting the real estate transaction for our clients.

Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty now offers Updater, a guided web application that streamlines the moving process, in order to provide more efficient moves for their clients.

“The move is arguably the toughest part of the real estate transaction for most home buyers and sellers,” says Jenna Weinerman, Marketing Director for Updater. “Shopping is fun, but moving is stressful. Therefore, we’re thrilled to help Rand Realty agents deliver an impressive and stress-free experience around the move.”

When a buyer or seller works with Rand Realty, their agent grants them free access to Updater’s suite of services prior to their move. Updater saves clients hours and headaches on moving-related tasks, including:

  • Updating Accounts: Clients can automatically update any of over 15,000 business and account records including magazines, newspapers, charities, retail loyalty, frequent flier accounts, and much more.
  • Connecting Home Services: An Updater moving concierge helps set up all of the client’s digital services including phone, Internet, and cable, identifying the best prices available and scheduling in-home installation appointments.
  • Forwarding Mail: Clients can file their official U.S. Postal Service mail-forwarding form without having to set foot in a post office.
  • Sending Digital Moving Announcements: Clients can create a custom digital eCard to post on social media or send via email, notifying friends and family of their new address.
  • Claiming Move-in Offers: Clients gain access to special offers and exclusive deals on moving services and expenses, such as discounts on professional cleaning, moving companies, packing supplies, local fitness classes, and more.
  • Getting an Insurance Quote: Clients can source auto, home, and renter’s insurance quotes through Rand Realty’s preferred providers, Hudson United Mortgage, Title, and Insurance.

“This partnership with Updater is another step toward our goal of perfecting the real estate transaction for our clients,” states Joseph Rand, Managing Partner of Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty. "It’s one of the best tools I’ve seen for making the moving processes easier and simpler. I used it when I moved, and I absolutely loved it.”
