Nearly 40,000 MRED REALTORS In Chicago Area Go Mobile With Goomzee

Missoula, Montana – May 10th, 2011 – Continuing to expand its MLS footprint in the US real estate marketplace, Goomzee®, the most trusted provider of mobile technology solutions for real estate professionals, today announced it has agreed with Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED) to provide its product, Realty Connect®, to their customers and revolutionize how Chicago area home-buyers and sellers access real estate listing information on their mobile phones. Goomzee’s text message marketing and lead generating QR code technology will be provided as a member benefit to MRED’s nearly 40,000 members.

Goomzee’s Realty Connect helps connect buyers and sellers using mobile technologies and integrates with MLS data systems. Agents place signs or ads regarding a property for sale that prompts potential buyers to send a text message or scan a QR (Quick Response) graphic. Within seconds the buyer receives a response containing property information and pricing, and optionally photos. At the same time, the agent is notified of the buyer’s inquiry. Automated tools then help the agent screen and cultivate those leads to establish a relationship with the buyer.

Russ Bergeron, CEO of MRED, said, “One mission of MRED is to provide our customers with the best tools and information available in the industry. Providing consumers with access to real estate listing information while on-the-go has become mission critical to support our members’ success, and Goomzee’s mobile solutions will improve our brokers and agents’ productivity, professionalism, and relationships with buyers and sellers.”

“We are excited to be chosen by MRED and look forward to adding further value and efficiency to their customers,” states Goomzee CEO, Mike Sparr. “By offering consumers instant access to the information they need using text messages, QR codes, and the mobile Web, agents can promote their listings to more potential buyers, cement their position as the trusted source of local real estate information, and close more transactions.”

With the addition of MRED as an MLS partner, Goomzee’s MLS partnership user footprint in the United States now exceeds 175,000 agent users. Goomzee’s mobile technology tools are available to real estate professionals nationwide and the company currently supports agent customers in 48 states.

Tarasoft And Goomzee Integrate Via Single Sign-On (SSO)

Missoula, Montana – March 2nd, 2011 – Goomzee, a leading provider of mobile technology solutions for Real Estate, announced today that they have successfully completed the Web Single Sign-On (SSO) integration with real estate software solutions provider, Tarasoft.

With the SSO integration in place, Real Estate agents can log on to the Tarasoft Matrix® system once and access Goomzee’s mobile marketing and lead generation platform without requiring separate logons.  Goomzee is recognized as the first mobile solutions provider to integrate with their MLS system.

SSO establishes “trust” relationships between third-party vendor websites.  This process enables the user to avoid repeat logons. Once the user is authenticated on the Martrix® MLS system, they can move freely between Goomzee’s and Tarasoft’s web applications.

“We’re pleased to help simplify user’s experience by linking to Goomzee directly from the MLS interface.  This ultimately reduces the time it takes for agents to get their work done each day.  Without requiring the user to log into multiple websites, Real Estate professionals are able to get more done, faster, as they have become accustomed to with the speed of our Matrix® MLS platform,” states Brian de Schepper, Tarasoft Executive Vice President.

Mike Sparr, CEO of Goomzee said, “Goomzee takes great pride in developing enterprise-grade technology solutions that are easy to use and result in increased efficiency and opportunity for real estate professionals.  Our integration with Tarasoft is a perfect example of how simple we make it for sales professionals to add the mobile channel into their traditional marketing and sales activities.”

Goomzee Connects With More MLS’s in Texas, Oregon and Illinois

Missoula, Montana – May 05, 2010 – Home buyers in Illinois, Oregon, and Texas will soon be able to receive for-sale home information, pricing, and photos, sent directly to their phone using text messaging (SMS) thanks to Goomzee.  Peoria Area Association of Realtors® (PAAR), Willamette Valley MLS (WVMLS), and Temple-Belton Board of Realtors (TBBOR) recently joined the growing number of REALTOR® associations, multiple listing services (MLS), brokerages and real estate agents connecting with Montana’s Goomzee, a nationwide text message marketing solution provider for real estate professionals.

Goomzee’s real estate text message marketing solution, Realty Connect®, helps connect buyers and sellers using mobile technology and integration with MLS data systems.  Real estate professionals place signs or ads prompting homebuyers to send a text message with a unique property code to receive for-sale property information.  Potential buyers just have to send the property code as a text message to 44133 and within seconds they receive for-sale information, and optionally photos, on their cell phone.  The real estate agent is alerted, and may connect with buyers in real time, providing timely follow up.

“This is an essential tool for today’s real estate professional.  Goomzee’s technology allows agents to reach the growing population of consumers who rely on their mobile phone to access information anytime, anywhere,” says Mike Sparr, Goomzee’s CEO.

Jay Gordon, CEO of the Willamette Valley MLS, says “Our goal is to provide Realtors with the best tools and information available in the industry. We are very happy to create a relationship with Goomzee that will improve our members’ productivity, professionalism, and relationships with buyers and sellers.”

An increasing number of Americans look to their cellular phones for instant access to information.  According to the International Association of Wireless Telecommunications, also known as CTIA®, there are 285.6 million US mobile phone subscribers, representing 91% of Americans.

Text messaging has rapidly become one of the most commonly-used features on mobile phones.  Wireless carriers have reported that over 1.5 trillion text messages were delivered in the U.S. in 2009 and average monthly messages per subscriber was 357.  Cellular text communication has surpassed voice calls since November 2007.  Once a technology primarily for chatting amongst friends, text messaging is now the preferred source for instant information.  With Goomzee’s text message marketing service, Realty Connect, real estate professionals have yet another arrow in their quiver to reach America’s home buyers.
