Huntington, NY…February 23, 2010… Parlez-vous francais? Habla espanol? Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty’s (DGSIR), one of the nation’s leading realtors, continues to find new ways to communicate with today’s homebuyers and sellers. In addition to French and Spanish, visitors to the firm’s website can conduct a property search in any of 13 languages, including Japanese, Russian, Chinese and Portuguese.
“Although we can’t be fluent in every language, we’ve made a commitment to provide comprehensive service, both through our website and our multi-lingual agents,” explained Sr. Vice President of Marketing and Technology James P. Retz. “We will be adding even more language options to our website in the near future. And it’s interesting to note that among our agents, in addition to English, we speak 28 languages.” A search button on the DGSIR website allows visitors to select an agent based on the language he or she speaks.
