Washington DC (PRWEB) April 04, 2013
Avery-Hess, Realtors, an independent real estate brokerage based in the Washington, DC Metro area, has announced the release of their Real Estate home search App that utilizes GPS-based Multiple Listing Service (MLS) search technology to allow consumers and Agents to search the MLS in real time, giving them the most up-to-date and accurate data available.
Through a partnership with MRIS, the Mid-Atlantic Multiple Listing Service (MLS), Avery-Hess Realtors is the first brokerage to offer this innovative technology paired with professional features and individual company branded MRIS App options to its Agents.
“Consumer home search is rapidly moving to a mobile environment,” explains Kristin Maynard, Director of Marketing for Avery-Hess Realtors. “Through our partnership with MRIS, our App meets this need and alleviates the primary consumer complaint of stale data in results. We are able to provide the freshest data possible in real time to our consumers -- ensuring the best experience possible.”
Users can search by city, state, zip or GPS search to find nearby properties, get listing details and pictures and contact Avery-Hess for more information without ever leaving the App. Property details and search results are updated directly from the MRIS database every 10 minutes.
“Consumers need a trusted source for real time, accurate real estate information right at their fingertips,” said Andrew M. Strauch, MRIS Director of Product Innovation, Marketing and Education. “We are very excited to partner with Avery-Hess to provide home buyers with ALL the latest real estate listings straight from the source.”
The Avery-Hess App is the first brokerage App to include pro features that give Agents the ability to securely login to MRIS and view agent only information from their mobile device, eliminating the need for a computer.
