Karp Liberman & Kern Sotheby’s International Realty Launches
Mobile Real Estate Application for all Mobile Platforms
Newton, MA. Karp Liberman Kern Sotheby’s International Realty in Newton, MA. today announced the launch of a free Sotheby’s International Realty® mobile application and mobile web search, SIR Mobile, that works on standard cell phones and smart phones across all mobile carriers, allowing consumers to view all homes for sale in Newton, Brookline, Weston, Wellesley, Needham and West Roxbury.
The Sotheby’s International Realty mobile app uses GPS, when available, to locate the user and display listings in the immediate area. Users also can search by a U.S. address, city or zip code to see property details for all homes for sale in a specified area including price, square footage, estimated mortgage, taxes, features, maps and pictures. By the end of the year users will be able to search for all homes represented by the brand’s network outside the United States.
A Refine Search feature allows users to narrow their search by selecting a price range, property type and number of bedrooms and bathrooms. If a user has questions or wants a tour of the property, the Call feature connects them to a Karp Liberman Kern Sotheby’s International Realty representative.
To download the app, consumers can visit karplibermankernsir.com to send a text message to their phone with a link to download the app. The app was created by Smarter Agent, the leading mobile real estate provider in the United States, to create innovative ways for buyers to search for homes and interact with their agents.
