Terabitz, boutique web developer for real estate brokerages, launches two new custom websites
Los Altos Hills, CA (November 5, 2014) Terabitz, the leading web marketing platform developer for real estate brokerages, announces two new real estate websites. Smith and Associates of Tampa, FL (www.smithandassociates.com) and Laffey Fine Homes of Long Island, NY (www.laffey.com). Both real estate brokerages picked Terabitz for their combination of a robust technology backbone and customizable, full-featured marketing outreach tools for agents and their clients.
Stephanie Streeter is Director of Technology for Smith & Associates, a high-end, multi-office brokerage in the Tampa-St. Petersburg market, and was the lead in her company’s decision to engage Terabitz:
“After experiencing disappointments with previous vendors, we made it a priority to do a very detailed review when choosing a new direction. In the end, we chose Terabitz because, like us, they are a flexible boutique firm willing to provide the high level of customization we would require. Unlike our last provider who over-promised and under-delivered, Terabitz has become a true partner who implements any customization quickly and at very reasonable rates. As an added bonus, the team is a pleasure to work with.”
Laffey Fine Home of Long Island chose Terabitz because the boutique web developer had the know-how and experience to take their real estate website and turn it into a more consumer-friendly, revenue-driving online marketing platform.
While their website was already ranked number one in the Long Island market, its prior web developer was incapable of further developing their website to keep pace with current technology trends nor broaden their online brand’s footprint.
“Being number one is a good thing; however, the only place you can move from number one is down to number two” said Emmett Laffey, Managing Broker and Principal of Laffey Fine Homes of Long Island. “I knew it was time to make the move to Terabitz in order to further grow our online presence and to widen the gap between us and number two.”
Terabitz offers three separate starter packages that then provide the foundation for brokerages to build their custom online marketing platform. These packages vary based on layout parameters, depth and complexity of the IDX search, and the amount of customization. One major differentiator is Terabitz’ neighborhood search feature. Neighborhood search creates multiple map layers that enables consumers to drill down and receive specific information based on the neighborhood they want to live in.
Terabitz was founded in 2006 by Ashfaq Munshi. Munshi is a Silicon Valley veteran who realized early on that local real estate brokerages would need powerful online marketing tools to help combat the footprint left by national real estate portals like Trulia and Zillow.
Munshi founded Terabitz with the intention of providing state-of-the-art real estate home search, real estate lead management, and online marketing modules. Terabitz quickly caught the attention of brokerages looking for the technology and service that out-of-the-box, templated website vendors couldn’t offer. Since 2006, the company has continued to innovate. It recently introduced its unique mobile home search platform, HouseTouch℠, which was specifically designed for tablets and smart phones. Other new technology developments include its CRM and marketing analytics platform, Teraleads.ABOUT TERABITZ
