HomeStack and Smarter Agent have been pioneers in the industry since real estate apps became an option for brokers and agents to have a mobile presence. These companies emerged from a need for the real estate community to provide a mobile solution for their clients that could compete with the search quality they were receiving with sites like Zillow and Realtor.com. Many app developers popped over the years, but most have since been acquired or did not last. It seems as though HomeStack is the last one standing and continues to be the #1 real estate mobile app provider in the market.
Smarter Agent took an approach of going far and wide with many MLS relationships and even building apps directly for the MLS in some areas. In contrast, HomeStack focused on creating more of a luxury product and spending more time on user interface and tech. Today, HomeStack is working with over 75% of the nation's top MLS's and services all major markets that make up thousands of America's top brokerages and teams.
To provide some insight to Smarter Agent clients that need a new home for their mobile app, we can take a look at why they may want to switch to HomeStack and how we differ from Smarter Agent.
An Overview of HomeStack
HomeStack provides a comprehensive mobile solution with top-notch searching technology to end-users. Its back-office tool for brokers and agents delivers key app analytics to ensure lead conversion and long term success. User interface, connection, and integration are essential focal points to give their customers the best possible experience.
USER INTERFACE/ USER EXPERIENCE
While searching on mobile, sometimes it's the smallest details that keep a user repeatedly returning, like offering Dark Mode when new iOS and Android versions deploy. HomeStack was the first to provide this even before Zillow and Realtor.com. Or the smoothness and user functionality of clicking on listings and having a truly personalized experience while searching for a home right at your fingertips.
App users set up saved searches and receive email and push notifications based on their preferences. But it doesn't stop there; HomeStack also allows the agents to send out custom push notifications to alert clients about open houses, offer congratulations on a close of escrow, or any other meaningful message they'd like delivered right to their phone. These details not only enhances the mobile experience but solidifies communication between the agent and their client.
HomeStack has made this a huge priority in 2020 and as we advance. Brokers and agents can enhance their back office by connecting all the other software tools they use daily. We integrate with all major CRM's and platforms via Zapier, creating a true ecosystem.
