Trulia Lauches Local, Social, Mobile iPhone for Agents

Trulia, the site for home buyers, sellers, renters and real estate professionals, just announced the launch of a brand new iPhone app, Trulia for Agents.

The iPhone app integrates mobile, social and location-based technologies to help agents meet new clients, showcase their local expertise and access their business from anywhere.

Trulia For Agents features include:

  • Check Ins – Agents can use Trulia for Agents to check in to listings they tour and display check ins on their profile so that prospective clients can ask about home details
  • Local Leaderboard – Agents receive points for every check in and are ranked with other local agents who use Trulia for Agents to tour properties
  • Lead Notifications – New leads from Trulia are pushed immediately to Trulia for Agents, helping agents to respond quickly to consumer inquiries
  • Client Access – Agents can access saved leads and contacts, giving them access to a list of their clients and enabling them to add new contacts while hosting an open house
  • Listing Search – The app includes a quick property lookup for agents to find nearby listings and instantly share the homes that fit clients’ needs
  • Neighborhood Knowledge: Agents can access neighborhood details, share their local knowledge and answer client questions about any area

Trulia for Agents reflects the features in a mobile app that are important to individual and business users:  search, check-ins, notifications and rich places information.

I will keep posting examples of apps that possess the successful local and social characteristics mobile app users are users are growing accustom to.   I think Trulia for Agents is a great example of this.
