By enabling collaboration and leveraging ideas from social networking, we can dramatically improve the home buying experience for both the buyer and the agent.
Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) August 4, 2010
Today, Sliced Simple unveiled the first social collaboration solution to help real estate agents and homebuyers work together.
According to the National Association of Realtors®, homebuyers are now as likely to find their future home online as through their real estate agent. The numerous online home search sites have empowered buyers, but in the process, have distanced them from their most valuable asset, their real estate agent.
Real estate agents provide significant guidance through their local market knowledge and experience. With homebuyers searching online and seeing homes independently, it is becoming increasingly difficult for real estate agents to fully share that knowledge and experience.
A new approach to real estate, Sliced Simple's social collaboration software enables homebuyers and real estate agents to work seamlessly together. Sliced Simple empowers buyers with accurate home data and a way to manage their search while also keeping them tightly connected with their real estate agent.
"Buying a home is an important and complicated transaction. We believe that the best results are achieved through open collaboration. The homebuyer stays intimately involved in the process without losing the guidance of their agent," said Stuart Eichert, Sliced Simple CEO. "By enabling collaboration and leveraging ideas from social networking, we can dramatically improve the home buying experience for both the buyer and the agent."
With this launch, homebuyers in the San Francisco Bay Area can use Sliced Simple to search the MLSListings MLS to find homes for sale. Additional MLSs will be added in the future.
Sliced Simple is free for real estate agents and brokers, and their homebuyers. Agents can upgrade to more advanced collaboration and client management features for a fee.
