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

Real Estate Association

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.
