TORONTO, May 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Right At Home Realty (RAHR) today announced the launch of its very own app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. The app was developed through a strategic partnership with UBIX Innovations, the creators of the Working Business Card (WBC), to provide RAHR's salespeople and brokers with the ability to have their own iPhone or Android app. The app is, in essence, a virtual business card that stores all important contact information for RAHR's clients in order to make it easier for them to keep in contact with their agent and service providers. Clients can use the RAHR app to email or phone their agent, and their agent's preferred service providers/vendors, with the touch of one button, as well as access other information related to their listed property, or property they are interested in purchasing.
"Our partnership with UBIX allows Right at Home's agents to serve up their business cards, and their preferred partners such as AMJ Campbell, for example, along with our listings via the iPhone, iPad, or Android phones," says Don Kottick, President of RAHR. "This partnership further demonstrates our position as one of the real estate technology leaders in Canada."
Looking to break in to the real estate sector, the people behind the WBC chose RAHR as a strategic partner for their own reasons. Mike Barta, Vice President of North American Sales for the WBC explains "Right At Home Realty was the obvious choice for our entry into the Canadian real estate market as they have recently demonstrated the ability to move quickly and their management team have a great understanding for the deployment of innovative technologies in this space. We developed our foundation in the mortgage space and are now looking to the Canadian and US real estate markets for growth opportunities."
A RAHR top producer and technology champion, Dave Elfassy is also pleased with this new partnership and the app that has come out of it. "I immediately embraced the new Right At Home Realty app, as I have always built my business by using technology as a key differentiator," says Elfassy. "This new APP allows me to take that a step further by giving me the ability to connect with the ever growing smartphone crowd who use these apps every day."
