The Keyes Company Unveils Refreshed Website with Innovative Search Platform

Miami, FL (June 28, 2016) – The Keyes Company is pleased to introduce the updated Keyes.com, our new brokerage website boasting a brand-new, innovative search platform with a touch-centric, mobile-to-Ultra HD experience.

“With over 80% of all buyers using the internet in their home search process (2015 National Association of Realtors® Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends), it is essential for us to provide a site that works for our consumers across all devices,” said Wendi Iglesias, Chief Information Officer for The Keyes Company. “We are committed to offering the best technology advancements in real estate to ensure we are providing the best online search experience for our visitors.”

Communication Devices

They are able to take it a step further and define their desired location with our polygon tool. Furthermore, users have the ability to choose how they would like to view property search results, whether by map, photo gallery or a hybrid of both.

Additional features of Keyes.com allow consumers to view property information and market stats without leaving their property matches – streamlining their home search process and saving valuable time.

Prudential Northwest Properties Launches Area-Exclusive Market Watch Feature

Powered by Reliance Network, the website of leading Portland and Vancouver real estate company Prudential Northwest Properties launches the innovative Market Watch trends and reporting system as a way for agents to better service their clients and prospects.

Portland, OR (PRWeb) June 6, 2013 — Prudential NW Properties, one of the leading Portland and Vancouver real estate companies in the greater northwest (See Portland Homes for Sale here), has launched their new Market Watch trends activity reporting system. Built as the premier way for agents to stay in touch with both clients and prospects, this proprietary system focuses all the multiple listing service data for a pinpointed address, neighborhood or city and displays the data in several methods in weekly emails or through a client-accessible web portal.

Merging together school and community information, along with statistics including price changes and time on the market, the system displays an interactive map for the user to custom define their radius area. This map functions as a simple pull-out from the initial radius center. Prospects and initial users of this new system have shown much higher rates of interactivity and satisfaction than previous campaigns.

Another unique feature is the way the data is parsed. Instead of the system trying to guess at the user home value based solely on random numbers much like some national web systems, it displays all the data so the user and their Real Estate agent can effectively determine a market price for both buyers and sellers.

Prudential NW Properties’ website is powered by Reliance Network, the national leader in Real Estate website development services. The Market Watch trend reporting has proven itself throughout the country and is quickly becoming the leader in client CRM reporting tools for mid-size and large real estate companies.

Prudential NW Properties again is proving itself as the go-to source for Portland and Vancouver area client-based technology. Those interested in learning more about the revolutionary Market Watch feature can visit Prudential Northwest Properties.
