NORWALK, CT – October 28, 2012 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty has announced the launch of their new Mobile Web Solution powered by Mobile Real Estate, LLC. Their website, http://www.williampitt.com, along with affiliated sites, http://www.juliabfee.com and http://www.litchfieldhillssir.com, can be accessed through the web browser on any internet enabled mobile device as well as through a customized app which can be installed on the home screen of select devices. The company’s Mobile Solution will provide William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty associates and consumers the ability to search for real estate on the go, in the palm of their hand, right from their mobile device. Users can utilize GPS technology to locate properties for sale within their vicinity as well as search all MLS listings using traditional search criteria such as bedrooms and bathrooms. In addition, the site which caters exclusively to mobile users allows for an instant connection to the William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty agent via the click-to-call feature.
“William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty made the decision to go mobile due to the rise in mobile web traffic that now accounts for a significant portion of overall site use. Companies like William Pitt are defining the technology curve within the real estate industry and we are elated to be part of the way in which they will cater to the growing demographic of mobile users looking for real estate information,” said Mobile Real Estate’s Founder and CEO, John Lim. “I also suspect that with the recent changes Google has made to mobile search rankings and search results display, they will benefit greatly by having this mobile offering. This gets them out in front of what all brands, franchises, brokers and agents alike will be forced to move towards providing consumers within the next year.”
Prior to launch of the mobile site, William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty noted fifteen percent of current user traffic originates from mobile devices. The new Mobile Web Solution allows them to now provide an impeccable experience catered specifically to this growing user group. Additional features of the site include viewing over 125,000 listings by utilizing standard search criteria along with specific U.S addresses, cities and zip codes. Agent profiles provide direct access to contact them by phone or email, along with access to social networking links as a means to connect.
“We are very excited to partner with Mobile Real Estate to bring our new mobile website to buyers and sellers of fine property. Buyers can take advantage of this powerful tool customized for all smart phones to quickly find listings available both in the local market and all of the markets our brand serves,” said Vincent Socci, Director of Marketing for William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty. “Sellers will also benefit from the beautiful and accessible presentation of their listings before this increasing audience of mobile users. Our goal is to meet and surpass the needs of today’s real estate consumers, and we are thrilled to provide them with the best possible real estate search experience.”
