This week at Homesnap, we’ve got several new developments to share, from the launch of a new MLS partnership and new features in our app to a proposed panel at SXSW 2015.

SXSW Panel Picker: Breaking the Code: App Growth Secrets Revealed

Lou Mintzer, Homesnap’s SVP of Product Development, has submitted a panel to SXSW and we’d love your help getting it through the competitive Panel Picker process. His session will “break the code” for app growth by focusing on techniques to earn more 5-star reviews, maximize downloads and efficiently transition users from the web to your mobile products.

Public voting accounts for a third of the overall SXSW panel selection process, and we’d love your support. You can vote here: http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/40063.

Later this month, Homesnap will kick off its partnership with The MLS/CLAW, one of the MLSs for the Los Angeles metro area, and with Palm Springs Regional MLS.

Agent members of both MLSs will have access to Homesnap Pro by the end of this month. Those agents will enjoy real-time confidential MLS data on their smartphones, rapid CMAs, one-tap agent communication, confidential agent data, and all of the other powerful features of Homesnap Pro.

Homesnap Pro is now free to all MLSs for the first 12 months. To learn more about our MLS offer, go to homesnap.com/mls.

In this Inman Next piece, Sam DeBord calls Homesnap Pro “the app that every agent is asking its MLS to build and provide for them”. We agree: Homesnap Pro combines the intuitive, user-friendly design of a consumer app with the power of real-time MLS data, creating the perfect mobile solution for agents. 

We also liked this quote quite a bit: 

"I don’t think I’ve ever seen a product partnership opportunity that so clearly highlights the strengths of an organization, and its potential to leverage those strengths to transform its role in the real estate world. While the product itself is a beautiful integration of MLS core functions and consumer usability, it became clear that a couple of key partnerships with this product could produce a monumental impact on the MLS industry and the Realtor organization.

We hope you’ll give the whole article a read.

Homesnap Pro offers real estate agents a single mobile solution for everything they do. This week, we’re highlighting Homesnap Pro’s one-tap agent-to agent communication features. Homesnap Pro provides immediate access to agents’ MLS colleagues, via call, text or email.

As a buyer’s agent, you’re on the lookout for new listings for your interested buyers every day. Homesnap Pro offers agent-to-agent messaging to connect buyer’s agents with listing agents to schedule showings or get further details. 

Listing Agent Details - If you can’t make an open house, but have a serious buyer in mind for a home, go to the listing page, and scroll below the home details to view the listing agent’s information. Here you can tap on the agent’s profile to view their deal history and the telephone icon to give them a call, all from within the app.

Scheduling an open house for your new listing? Invite agents directly from the app. Here are three ways:

Favored Agents - Favor agents whom you correspond with frequently, for quicker access and communication. Give them a call, or text/email them the open house details from the app to get more Pros in to see your listing.

"My Office" - To reach other agents within your office, go to your Homesnap profile in the app and click “My Office”. You can reach out to them instantly without having to leave the app to search through your contact list.

Recently Viewed Agents - Homesnap Pro offers a “Recently Viewed Agents”page in the app, where you can connect with agents you’ve recently met or looked up.
