Zephyr Exclusive Sponsor of First-Ever Neighborhood Apps


1409847890SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Zephyr Real Estate has partnered with Neighbrhds, a product of Urban Living Marketing, to provide neighborhood apps tailored specifically to San Francisco’s neighborhoods. Zephyr’s website has been a forerunner in providing abundant and robust neighborhood details. Zephyr has even produced videos for most of San Francisco’s neighborhoods, which have been used as an educational tool in classrooms to highlight the diversity and variety San Francisco has to offer. Neighbrhds is moving neighborhood-level information forward to the next natural step, allowing residents and visitors to gain instant access to community events, local businesses, top restaurants, shopping and more.

Each app, named after its corresponding neighborhood, includes a curated community social feed with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram updates from local businesses and organizations. Currently, the Neighbrhds apps are available for these neighborhoods: Bernal Heights, Lower Pacific Heights, SOMA, Pacific Heights, Hayes Valley, Glen Park, Nob Hill, Eureka Valley, Noe Valley, Haight Ashbury, Union Square, Yerba Buena, Potrero Hill, NOPA, Dogpatch, Cole Valley, Inner Sunset, South Beach, Mission Dolores and Inner Mission.

With the Zephyr/Neighbrhds partnership, these neighborhoods will blend all the real estate marketing, trending and listing information with social and entertainment information for a unique and exceedingly helpful guide for denizens of the individual neighborhoods.

"We immediately recognized the value of Neighbrhd's apps, and partnering with them was a natural fit for us,” said Melody Foster, Director of Marketing and Web Development for Zephyr. “Zephyr has a 35-year history as a local real estate brokerage that's deeply rooted in the 89 unique neighborhoods of San Francisco. We're delighted about our involvement with the initial launch of these 20 apps.”

By utilizing Zephyr’s real estate expertise and providing the user with local real estate information, it greatly enhances the user experience and is a perfect fit for the app.”
