Tucker Partners with ConsulTech on Smartphone Web Site

Date: Dec 07, 2010

F.C. Tucker/Bloomington, REALTORS® now offers shoppers who use smartphones a new way to search for the perfect home. Today the company launched a mobile website that features hundreds of homes for sale in Monroe County and adjacent counties.

The mobile website, www.fctre.mobi, allows consumers to customize their search for all local property listings. Smartphone users can view photos and select specific home features, such as number of bedrooms, square-footage, price and more. Buyers can also search for their favorite Tucker real estate associate and obtain contact information. The mobile website is not an iPhone application.

John West, managing broker of F.C. Tucker/Bloomington, REALTORS®, said “Our goal is to offer the most accurate and accessible information to our house hunters. More and more, we see our customers using smartphones and are excited to offer this enhanced service to those on the go. We hope our customers find this search tool a great supplement to our website, www.TuckerBloomington.com.”

Patrick Casey, owner and CEO of ConsulTech adds, “Various technology analysts report that ‘smart phones’ such as the Palm Treo, RIM’s Blackberry, Apple’s iPhone, and so-called ‘Droid’ phones are carried by about 10-14% of US adults. That number has been increasing steadily for the past few years and shows no signs of slowing any time soon. It makes tremendous sense for Tucker to expand in this direction. It’s a smart move on Tucker’s part, and ConsulTech is very pleased to be their partner in this exciting new service.”
