Missoula, Montana – September 14, 2010 – Regional MLS Inc. (RMLS) of Florida has joined the growing number of Real Estate Professionals, 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. Home buyers in Florida will soon be able to receive for-sale home information, pricing, and photos, sent directly to their phone using SMS text messaging, thanks to Goomzee.
Patty Connor, CEO of the RMLS, says “We are excited to establish a relationship with Goomzee that will improve the productivity, professionalism, and relationships with buyers and sellers for our 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 and 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. “Our company helps bridge the gap between sales professionals and today’s mobile consumers. A growing number of real estate organizations have recognized this need and I’m pleased they acknowledge Goomzee as the premier mobile technology solution provider.”
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 alone. 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.
