Boston Real Estate Firm Goes Mobile

Local agency uses new technology to give clients MLS access on-the-go

BOSTON: Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty has announced that it is launching a new mobile service for Boston. Kwkly is a service provider that offers MLS access via text, GPS searches and an iPhone app – all allowing people to search for homes for sale by simply using their cell phone. This brings market information right into the hands of the user, no matter where they are. CEO, Larry Rideout, was very excited to be the first to offer this service in the Boston area. “Our clients are very savvy about real estate and technology. When I first saw how Kwkly worked, I knew our clients would love it. Now we can share this service with everyone in Boston.”

The text service works like this: the user texts the word “Gibson” to 59559. They are then prompted to give an address of a property that is for sale. The MLS info will be texted back to them in a matter of seconds. They will also receive a link to Kwkly’s GPS search service. If their cell phone has GPS abilities (as in Google Maps), they will be able to find the five nearest properties that are for sale and comparable recent sales. Lastly, iTunes App Store has two applications MA Homes and Boston Homes that users may download for use on their iPhone.

Rideout says that Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty is always looking for the best way to offer assistance to their clientele. “We pride ourselves on our quality of service. This is one more way that we can provide what our clients want – immediate access to information.”
