RESAAS Services Signs California Real Estate Firm To Its Growing Network

Real estate social network RESAAS Services (CNSX:RSS) has announced a new deal with Southern California real estate firm Star Real Estate South County to join its platform.

The news comes just over a month after RESAAS Services struck a deal to work with The Residential Group Realty (TRG Realty) of Vancouver.

Star Real Estate has been providing residential real estate services for Southern California neighbourhoods for more than 34 years. The statement noted its agents are trained in issues that apply to today's markets - such as foreclosures and short sale real estate.

The website, StarSouthCounty.com, also provides services to potential home buyers.

"I am personally very happy to have Star Real Estate South County on board as a customer, as their office is close to my neighbourhood," said COO at RESAAS, Michael St. Hilaire.

"After stepping into their beautiful office, I could tell that their firm is tech-savvy and forward-thinking. I look forward to working with their incredible team."

Under the new deal, all Star agents will receive their own corporate branded agent pages on RESAAS. The firm will also have a Star Real Estate South County News Page in order to broadcast information and remain in constant contact with members of Star Real Estate that are part of RESAAS' social network.

RESAAS is a social network for real estate professionals, mortgage specialists as well as home buyers and sellers. Designed as a professional networking platform for North America's 3 million real estate professionals, the company enables real-time updating of property listings as well as the ability to sync with social media sites such as Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Twitter.

Real-time updates are one aspect of what sets RESAAS part from sites such as the Canadian Real Estate Association's Multiple Listing Service (MLS) website, where it can take a number of days for new listings to appear.

Last August, RESAAS received early approval to include their Real Estate Q&A app in Microsoft's Window's 8 App Store. The company's platform is also available for Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone and for Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android operating system for smartphones.
