RESAAS Services expands social network yet again with addition of Southern California's OC Homes
RESAAS Services (CNSX:RSS) is continuing to grow its real estate social network, adding yet another real estate agency to its platform as it late yesterday signed OC Homes Realty from Southern California.
The news comes just days after it announced a new service agreement with Century 21 In Town Realty in Downtown Vancouver, which came also days after RESAAS announced a deal with Southern California real estate firm Star Real Estate South County.
OC Homes Realty is a full service brokerage servicing all areas of Southern California.
“As the Southern California real estate market accelerates, OC Homes Realty is aware that empowering their agents to create business through social networking is a must,” said senior executive of sales for RESAAS, Padraig Cullen.
"OC Homes Realty will give their agents a robust and centralized hub of social networking that will not only deliver their real estate messages to other networks, but will also give their agent’s content enhancers to help them create their own valuable social content."
The social network for real estate professionals, mortgage specialists, home buyers and sellers is designed to enable real-time updating of property listings as well as the ability to sync with social media sites such as Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Twitter.
The company achieved a number of milestones in 2012, including a deal to work with The Residential Group Realty (TRG Realty) of Vancouver. TRG Realty, a real estate agency, started in April 2006, and has become one of the fastest growing companies in the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver.
The company also welcomed Summit Realty Group to the its platform in 2012, a full-service, commission brokerage specializing in residential real estate throughout the U.S.
In one of its most notable achievements last year, RESAAS received approval to include its real estate Q&A app in Microsoft's Window's 8 App Store. The company's platform is also available for Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone and for Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android operating system for smartphones.
Under the deal announced today, when using RESAAS, all OC Homes Realty agents will receive their own corporate branded agent pages. The real estate firm will also have its own branded News page in order to broadcast information and remain in contact with the members of OC Homes Realty that are a part of RESAAS' social network.
"Bryon Minton and Mel Peyton, Executives of OC Homes Realty, understand that having a branded, easy to use and mobile friendly real estate social network is a winning combination and a recipe for future real estate successes," said Cullen.
Vancouver-based RESAAS' stock currently trades at around 70 cents on the Canadian National Stock Exchange.
