Texas REALTORS Look To Montana To Get Mobile Savvy

Missoula, Montana – September 23, 2010 – Not only are Texas and Montana known for their cowboy boots and hats, but Montana-based mobile technology startup, Goomzee, is now working with Austin Board of REALTORS to deliver mobile technology to over 10,000 real estate professionals in the Austin, Texas area.  Goomzee has announced that it was selected to provide its text message marketing and mobile real estate search tools to all members of the Austin Board of REALTORs.

Home buyers in Texas will soon be able to receive for-sale home information, pricing, and photos, sent directly to their phone using text messaging, thanks to Goomzee’s text message marketing tool, Realty Connect®. Further, with Goomzee’s Realty Mobile(tm), agents and consumers can search the MLS, search for nearby listings, get directions, and collaborate with each other using any phone with a browser and a data connection.

Beth Gatlin, Director of MLS for ABOR, says “One mission of ABOR is to provide our members with the best tools and information available in the industry.  Access to real estate listing information while on-the-go has become mission critical to our business, and Goomzee’s mobile technologies will improve our brokers and agents’ productivity, professionalism, and relationships with buyers and sellers.”

“We are very excited to be working with Austin Board of REALTORS® and their members” states Mike Sparr, Goomzee’s CEO. “Progressive associations like ABOR can use our technology to help bridge the gap between sales professionals and today’s mobile consumers.”

Austin Board of REALTORS® and Goomzee look to launch their new mobile real estate solutions in Texas in mid October to early November.
