Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB UK) 26 March 2013
Since launching at the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Tradeshow in May 2012, Qazzoo experienced exponential growth of more than 100%, totaling over 1 million active users to date. Due to the company’s growth, a second office in Oklahoma City has been opened. Qazzoo's technical support, research and development units continue to be based in Annapolis, Maryland, while the new office will focus on additional client services and continuing to improve the user experience.
"We are starting out with additional client services and user experience out of the Oklahoma City location. After months of research Oklahoma was selected because of several factors including an educated workforce and low cost of living," explained Jim Buffington, Qazzoo senior VP of sales. "Keeping technical support and research and development in our Annapolis office allows us to maintain the integrity of the development team and continue to tap into the technical talent that is abundant in the Washington DC, Baltimore corridor."
Qazzoo, a consumer-powered search engine, with a particular focus on real estate, was designed as a next-generation hyperlocal platform able to connect sellers and buyers in mutually advantageous ways.
For buyers, Qazzoo eliminates hurdles related to search, enabling them to locate and enlist the assistance of the right local real estate professional in order to have their particular home-buying needs met.
The Qazzoo advantages for realtors are even more obvious. BIA/Kelsey recently revealed that the local ad spending in the USA is expected to grow to nearly $51 billion by 2017. This means that more and more businesses are willing to pay hard dollars for advertising, with no guaranteed return on their investments.
This is where Qazzoo can help real estate professionals, as it eliminates considerably the need for local advertising, by providing merchants with high quality home-buyer leads in their area. With Qazzoo realtors are able to identify serious buyers’ profiles with in-depth lead information like property type, price range, desired neighborhood, special requests, funds available for the purchase, and any other pertinent data points that the consumer has provided. With the option to preview all of the lead details before they buy, realtors have 100% control and can actually choose their customers. Qazzoo's benefits for realtors include:
- Qazzoo eliminates the need for expensive local advertising, either online, TV, radio or in print;
- Qazzoo offers highly targeted, relevant leads;
- With the option to preview the leads before they buy, Qazzoo puts realtors in control of every dollar spent on leads;
- Using Qazzoo, realtors generate better ROI for every dollar spent.
