No industry moves faster than real estate, as listings are constantly being listed, under contract, or sold. While the industry moves fast, sometimes the status of such listings do not. That will change for Douglas Elliman's agents with the new listing platform with Street Easy. This will result in real-time, accurate listing updates to Elliman’s internal systems and, in NYC, to StreetEasy.
Douglas Elliman and two Zillow® Group brands, StreetEasy® and Bridge Interactive®, created an innovative technology and listing partnership that revolutionizes the way Elliman real estate agents will bring new sales and rental listings to market.
“This new system will streamline our agents’ ability to accurately input listings directly to StreetEasy or regional MLSs, effortlessly share their new exclusives with the rest of the brokerage community, and arm buyers and sellers throughout the market with better, more accurate data.” said Scott Durkin, COO of Douglas Elliman.
Expected to debut in early 2018, the new agent-facing platform will leverage their existing desktop and mobile interfaces agents are already familiar with to build a one-stop, Elliman-branded platform for their NYC agents to enter and update listings. Updates will also be instantly published to both Elliman’s internal systems and StreetEasy.
“We are not just producing a new listing system, we are creating a way for agents to streamline their work and ensure the listing is in perfect order before it hits any digital media. We are automating the agent’s work, not the agent, freeing them to do what they do best, which is advising clients around the world on their real estate investments.” said Elliman Chief Technology Officer Jeffrey Hummel.
