Long & Foster teams up with Google for an easy 'Real Estate Quick Search Widget"
About The Real Estate Quick Search Widget
The Real Estate Quick Search widget for the Google application iGoogle is just one more way Long & Foster is staying abreast of the latest technological trends. "Buyers, sellers, enthusiasts and real estate agents will find this tool simple to use and completely versatile," said Michael Koval, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer for Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. "You can search based on location, price range, number of bedrooms, number of baths, or any combination of those criteria."
How does it all work? It starts with iGoogle. iGoogle is a personalized homepage available to Google users. It is completely customizable, so that when you log on to the Internet, everything you want to know – from the weather and news to t.v. listing and movie showtimes – is right at your fingertips.
Like these widgets, Long & Foster’s new Real Estate Quick Search widget can be downloaded to your iGoogle homepage, allowing you to conduct a simple search for homes for sale or comparable properties in your neighborhood. Once your search is complete, you can click on the desired property to be taken to www.longandfoster.com for full listing details. Explains Koval, "The best part is you can see the listing information without leaving your iGoogle page, but if you do want to see more details on the property then you can go directly to the full listing on our full www.longandfoster.com website."
In short, the Real Estate Quick Search widget is designed to save you time while still keeping you informed about up-to-the-minute market developments. With a little help from iGoogle, Long & Foster is doing just that.
