ITema, Inc., a leading provider of dynamic Websites and associated on-line productivity tools for the do-it-yourself business owner, and the Greater New Haven Association of Realtors (GNHAR) announced today the signing of an exclusive agreement for ITema to be the sole provider of Web site solutions to the GNHAR. Under the terms of the agreement, ITema will offer GNHAR members its leading-edge real estate solution, RealtyMagic. The solution will be jointly marketed by ITema and GNHAR.
ITema’s RealtyMagic offering was specifically designed to deliver the benefits of professional-looking, highly-functional Web sites along with easy-to-use e-mail, domain name registration, site hosting and prospect-tracking solutions to those realty organizations lacking internal IT resources. The solution will allow GNHAR members to launch and administer their own Website, while providing the benefits of anytime, anywhere lead tracking, centralized, commercial-grade e-mail and secure domain hosting.
“We believe this new, exclusive provider agreement speaks volumes about our ability to deliver cost-effective, easily-implemented Web site solutions specifically designed for the real estate community,” said Tim Houchin, Vice President of Business Development at ITema, Inc. “The confidence the Greater New Haven Association of Realtors has expressed in our capabilities is strong validation of our RealtyMagic solution, our unique business model and commitment to provide real estate customers with the Web site tools and enhanced services they need to keep competitive in today’s demanding real estate market.”
“There were a number of factors in our decision to use ITema as our only Web site solution, including their innovative technology, dedication to the real estate market, and shared vision to provide the most innovative, easily-deployed tools to our membership,“ said Roberta O’Hara, President of the Board of the Greater New Haven Association of Realtors. “Utilizing RealtyMagic will allow our members to quickly launch new Web sites and provide comprehensive property listings to facilitate easier, more in-depth searches for their clients while improving the overall customer experience.”
ITema’s RealtyMagic solution will be offered to all GNHAR members at special “association” pricing, which includes waiving of all applicable set-up fees. In addition, the Company will offer all “non-broker” members, such as attorneys, accountants, financial service companies, etc., special pricing on its small business solution that features all the Website, e-mail, lead tracking, and hosting services found in RealtyMagic, but with Web site templates and management tools specifically designed for non-realty business owners. All ITema solutions are designed so that deployment and configuration are accomplished in minutes. Members will be provided with a code to receive the discounts.
RealtyMagic (realtymagic.com) is available in three levels to suit independent agents, small brokers or larger brokers with many agents. All RealtyMagic solutions provide a wide choice of professionally designed and fully customizable Web site templates that feature editing capabilities requiring no programming skills, spam- and virus-filtered e-mail with a unique business domain name, rock-solid, highly-secure site hosting, a professional lead-tracking system, and an intuitive management interface to simplify deployment, navigation and maintenance of the entire integrated system. Further, the lead tracking system is fully integrated within the solution to eliminate duplicate data entry between applications. Everything works together in minutes, and no IT staff or skills are required. Agents and brokers can sign-up for RealtyMagic using a simple form at the RealtyMagic Website, and can be fully operational with a complete solution deployed in minutes.
