Relaunched 8z.com Promises Improved Experience for Home Buyers
(Boulder, Colo., October 28, 2014) – 8z Real Estate is excited to announce the launch of the new 8z.com earlier this month. 8z.com is the main property search portal which provides home buyers the most accurate source of listings for sale, updated directly from the MLS. The consumer side of the website integrates modern design features, and improved usability, while the back end will allow 8z Realtors to better assist their clients’ real estate needs.
The relaunched 8z.com offers easier navigation for home buyers to browse homes, and narrow their property search criteria across devices. The newly designed site utilizes a mobile responsive design which allows users the best view of the website content, whether their smart phone or tablet is oriented horizontally or vertically.
The navigation to a property search has also been simplified from the previous website design. When a home buyer starts a property search on 8z.com, they are brought to the regional listing portal for their search location: frontrange.8z.com, coloradosprings.8z.com, or bayarea.8z.com. A user will be able to find homes, save a search, and sign up for alerts for new listings faster than they were previously able to on 8z.com.
8z’s commitment to customer service is exemplified through the redesigned site. Clients are given more options to reach out to an 8z Realtor directly, or to the 8z Client Care team for assistance to see a property, get more information, or ask questions about their property search. As 8z Real Estate’s founder and CEO, Lane Hornung explains, “There are a lot of websites where you can find listing information on a home, but we believe that home buyers are also looking for help and customer service. When a home buyer has found what they think may be their perfect next home, they are ready to take their home search offline. A lot of home buyers don’t know a full time Realtor who focuses within their focus community. As a brokerage whose Realtors focus their real estate expertise hyper-locally, we can provide a lot of value to a home buyer who is seeking more than listing information, including market insights from a local professional.”
The new 8z.com website was developed by Boomtown ROI of Charleston, SC. Not only does the website provide search capabilities for site visitors, it provides highly developed CRM tools on the back end. This empowers the 8z Client Care team, and 8z Realtors to better communicate with the client, online and offline, as a client’s property search parameters evolve. In a real estate market, where homes in popular neighborhoods may only be listed for a couple days, a buyer is empowered not only by online tools, but also a team from 8z, looking after their real estate needs.
