Letter From The Co-Founder
I got the idea for ListingConnect roughly one and a half years ago. While driving home one evening, I received a call from a friend asking if I could recommend a Real Estate Agent for him. I've been in Real Estate technology for almost 11 years now. And Hillside Software was started by my dad when I was just 4 years old. So if there are two things I'm familiar with, it's Real Estate technology and receiving calls like the one from my friend.
Despite all the significant changes Real Estate technology has gone through, some key elements are still lagging behind. Technology has created new methods of lead generation. But the fundamental essence - specifically the problems - have stayed the same. Finding a Real Estate Agent isn't difficult. But finding the perfect Real Estate Agent for you still is. And why can't home buyers and sellers experience the utmost level of privacy when it comes to their personal information while finding the perfect agent for them? It's 2015. It's time lead generation caught up with the times.
"Technology has created new methods of lead generation. But the fundamental essence - specifically the problems - have stayed the same."
Finally, there's an answer. It's called ListingConnect. Now, finding the right agent for you couldn't be any easier. And as a home buyer and/or seller, you can find and communicate with agents while your personal contact information remains 100% private.
It's an exciting time for Real Estate technology. And an exciting time for ListingConnect. Soon, we will be launching our new site, which will allow you to access ListingConnect on any computer or mobile device. And the new site will include buyer profiles, too. If you are a home seller or Real Estate Agent and have an Apple mobile device, check us out on the iTunes store today.
All the best,
