William Raveis Facebook Page Now Allows for Search of Over 300,000 Listings
Posted by Supriya Anand — February 17, 2012
SHELTON, CT-William Raveis Real Estate recently announced a robust update to the brokerage’s Facebook page, a hub to inform the public on real estate news, information and company developments. Through an integration process with the company’s popular website, raveis.com, fans of the William Raveis Facebook page can now search through the firm’s entire inventory of 300,000+ listings throughout the northeast. This can take place when the user clicks on the “Property Search” tab located under the company’s Facebook logo.
“We know our fans are engaged and enjoy the content we deliver on our Facebook page,” said company Chairman and CEO, Bill Raveis. “But we wanted to offer them more. In an age where individuals spend more time on Facebook than any other site, we wanted to make sure that our fans were fully experiencing what our company has to offer and that we were adjusting our digital content to meet their searching patterns. A Facebook search functionality, mimicking our “Find a Home” feature, was the most natural choice to make.”
Users can perform detailed searches from the company’s Facebook page. For example, they can filter search results by property type, by new developments, waterfront homes and exceptional properties, the company’s luxury division. In addition, searches can be performed of the firm’s 9,000 rental properties. In addition, the company’s nationally recognized blog, blog.raveis.com and comprehensive local housing data numbers, can be accessed from the Facebook page, as well.
“Our robust social media marketing is one of the reasons we are a chosen company by our customers and our agents,” said Raveis. “A testament to our efforts is our recognition at Inman’s Agent Reboot, New York City, where our social media strategy was discussed as an example to brokerages nationwide. We believe adding the core digital component of real estate, search functionality, to our Facebook page, will help us resonate further with our clients and the real estate community at large.
