RealtyDime’s check-ins connect consumers and pros in real time

New real estate site on the scene

What do you get if you mash up Craigslist, Foursquare and Angie’s List for real estate? RealtyDime.com says they mash up the best features of these services in an effort to improve the real estate search process, saying “real Estate is more than just a place to live, it’s also finding and connecting with the people you need, when you need them.”

The service offers “Pro Check Ins” so that recommended professionals are shown on a map in real time to promote consumers’ connecting with them in real time so that phone and email tag can be eliminated and replaced with a quick text. “Find anything and everything real estate all in one place.”

RealtyDime Founder, Brian Gibson has been in real estate for over two decades as an investor and practicing Realtor and tells AGBeat that he was inspired to build RealtyDime because there “really isn’t a complete real estate resource that includes everyone. The current state of advertising is broken for both the public and the pro’s. A system where people are treated as sales leads, advertisers can buy zipcodes and titles such as Pro, Expert, Pre Screened or Trusted benefits no one”

Changing how real estate pros are viewed

Gibson says that professionals who work in the real estate sectors should be viewed as helpers and service providers, not sales people. “My goal is provide a transparent community where the public can find the best professional for whatever they need when they need it.”

The site is built on WordPress for ease of use and so that “ads receive search engine love.” Gibson says busy real estate professionals can “check in and post an ad in seconds from their smartphone and be found in real time by those who need them.”

RealtyDime offers a radius feature allowing users to drill down their location further and they offer a profile module where industry professionals can email professionals they have worked with and request a recommendation to help build their online reputation while profiles also show recent check ins, alongside website and social network links to help the public “make an informed decision.” Gibson designed it in this manner to balance out the “useless star rating/reviews common today.”
