Leading web marketing platform provider, Terabitz, today announced the re-launch of several local real estate websites owned by long-time clients, CENTURY 21 Award of San Diego, CA (www.century21award.com) and Better Homes and Gardens Gary Greene in Houston, TX (www.garygreene.com). Both brokerages have long-term relationships with Terabitz, and with the ongoing support of the Terabitz development team, have continued to improve their platforms over the years to better compete against both national portals and other local brokerages.
David Romero, President of CENTURY 21 Award, states, “As one of the largest CENTURY 21 franchisees in the world, we believe it is incumbent upon us to have the finest local web presence in the markets we serve. Our 1000 agents depend on us to provide consumer-facing tools that allow consumers to search for neighborhoods better than they can do on the national portals. They also expect us to provide quality back-end solutions that allow them to provide enhanced service to clients when they are ready to engage the local expert. Terabitz gives us the ability to do both and that’s why we have been working with them since 2008.”
As real estate brokerages continue to digest the future impact of the Zip Realty acquisition by Realogy and the merger of Zillow and Trulia, one thing is clear: Online consumer engagement continues to drive industry innovation. Silicon Valley veteran, Ashfaq Munshi, founded Terabitz in 2006. Munshi believed that national portals would eventually dominate, and the local brokerage, with its local expertise, would have to be given better tools to more effectively compete.
States Jose Perez, Founder and President of PCMS Consulting and Terabitz’ exclusive reseller, “We have been representing Terabitz since 2009. Our clients look to us to help better engage consumers in a variety of areas. Terabitz is helping lead the way with their robust SEO and search architecture, lead distribution, and data collection modules. And now with the new HouseTouch℠ platform, launched a few weeks ago, brokerage websites can offer the best property search experience for consumers.”
