House buying platform & app development for realtors case study - making real estate agency negotiations easy

app for real estate agents

Project intro

French Real Estate Association’s Mobile App for Realtors provides a powerful proptech tool for agents. It streamlines collaboration between professionals in the real estate industry. The company felt they were hindered from taking advantage of potential real estate deals. The app addresses a lack of transparency and communication between members of the real estate establishment.

The association identified a need to develop a mobile app for realtors that provided real-time information regarding the properties available for purchase or rental. Softermii, with experience in app development for real estate agents, delivered a mobile tool that addressed the specific needs of the French real estate market. Realtors and agents using this app enjoy a distinct advantage over their competitors who are not using the solution.

About the project

French Real Estate Association is an enterprise with headquarters in Paris. The organization is an association that welcomes all real estate agents and attempts to improve their ability to serve potential customers.

The company approached our company to make an app for real estate agents that would facilitate finalizing deals with potential customers. The real estate agent application needed to provide timely information to professionals and customers in the field. The project’s goal was to eliminate issues that negatively impacted the ability to finalize deals. Development began in May, 2019 and is ongoing.

Realtors App Development Challenges and Project Goals

Several challenges were identified as issues that severely limited the ability of real estate professionals to close deals with prospective clients.

  • 01
    Real-time

    The main problem was the lack of real-time information available to real estate professionals concerning the state of the market. There was no collaborative tool with which to coordinate the actions of agents in the field, leading to confusion and degraded productivity.

  • 02
    Information

    The lack of information resulted in wasted time spent trying to determine if properties were still available or had already been taken off the market. Productive time was lost by agents discussing unavailable properties with their customers when they could have been concentrating on opportunities that still existed.

  • 03
    Solution

    In addition to costing agents precious time, the inability to quickly respond to client queries resulted in reduced customer satisfaction. We provided a mobile solution bringing the necessary information together to resolve the bottlenecks in the French real estate industry.

Our solution for Real Estate Agents

The team at Softermii already had experience in app development for real estate agents. It was logical to choose them to develop a solution for French Real Estate Association. The final product is a mobile app for iOS that streamlines the interaction between agents and their clients, increasing the number of successful transactions and customer satisfaction.

It was great experience!

Softermii have very hard commitment towards the project delivery on time without any delay, without any obstacles. We ended up by having a very attractive and competitive product that can compete with any other virtual platform.

I have enjoyed the transparency and commitment!

Softermii are great with time management and produce high-quality work. Because of how satisfied we've been with their work on this project, we're exploring bringing them in on a separate project as well.

It was great experience!

They were really on top of everything and pushed everything together done really good. They know how important my timelines were and they made sure that they're dead to them and got everything done really quickly.

The team is very dynamic and is really flexible with picking up urgent bugs. I found that is a really good working relationship in that sense that the prices are very reasonable and they are accessible even over the weekend. So we didn't get that kind of services before.

Working with Softermii is a good idea!

I have experience working with other companies, and Softermii excels at recruiting. They’ve brought in some amazing developers. Besides that, working with Softermii is a good idea. I don’t think anyone will be disappointed.

Softermii has proven to be a professional, reliable, and effective partner

Softermii delivered a really robust, technically sophisticated app that integrates multi-party video conferences with social media dynamics. Throughout the collaboration, Softermii has proven to be a professional, reliable, and effective partner, integrating well with the internal team.

The team was genuinely invested in the success of our platform.

Sofitermii's team was genuinely invested in the success of our platform. They were also personable and provided a high level of customer service.

They’re really good at showing how they can add value to our initiatives

They always reach out, asking how they can best add value to our business. That can be a risky thing to do, but they’re really good at showing how they can add value to our initiatives. We’ve built our relationship on that. With millions of developers in the world, connecting like this will help individuals stand out from the pack.

In terms of code quality, Softermii are really up to any professional standard

Softermii are always on track with their timesheets and the milestones are being reached even earlier than planned. They are performing on par with our expectations. They deliver top-notch quality and are really reliable.

Softermii team was able to meet tight deadlines

They had the skills we needed, were able to meet tight deadlines, and were responsive. We had some changes in the validation phase, and Softermii handled those quickly.

In total, we have about 5–6 people working on the project, including dedicated iOS and Android developers, backend developers, and a project manager. Besides that, they have some quality assurance specialists and a designer. They have been rather professional in their communication and in their project management. They've really tried to go the extra mile to handle the project in the best way possible.

I would highly recommend Softermii for any computer programming needs your company may have. I have worked with them for well over a year, and are consistently impressed by the quality of the work and team effort brought forth by everyone that we've worked with.I hope to have the opportunity to work with them on future projects!
