Real Estate Agents Make New Websites A Priority In 2013

SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In anticipation of the best home-selling season since 2008, three Illinois real estate professionals recently launched new websites with LRS CurbAppeal to take advantage of the professional designs with powerful marketing tools at an affordable price. Bob Davenport, Tricia Tialdo, and Christopher Mitchell all plan to get a jump on spring house hunting demand using the integrated search, communication, and organization features included with all LRS CurbAppeal sites.

"Real estate sales continue to be trending up," notes Bob Davenport, a Carbondale broker with Realty Central Inc. "I need to be prepared for any client searching online for the perfect home in my area. With my advanced property search, I'm now ready for everyone at"

The enhanced property search is a key LRS CurbAppeal feature offering site visitors a streamlined search of the most current MLS listings using the Real Estate Transaction Standard (RETS) data feed. A wide variety of search options are available, including the ability to filter results by school district or subdivision. Users can also save search criteria and rank favorites for future reference.

"I want to be immediately accessible to home buyers or sellers with questions," says Tricia Tialdo with Tialdo Realty in Belleville. "My email is out of control, so I appreciate being able to forward all questions from my website directly to my smartphone by text message. I never miss a request for information, regardless of where I am at the time, and can respond immediately."

LRS CurbAppeal's Message Center eases one-on-one interaction through email and text message notification options. This flexibility keeps the dialog moving quickly between real estate agent and site user from any device – computer, smartphone or tablet. The mobile version of LRS CurbAppeal is just as user-friendly as the full site thanks to responsive design, which automatically rearranges content to display optimally on any screen size.
