I'm finally doing it - I decided to spend the money necessary to have a first class real estate website where anyone can go to search all the homes listed for sale in the Puget Sound Region. YourEastsideBroker.com will be the new web portal for my real estate company AAA Properties. It should be live around the 20th of August.
It should be pretty cool - besides searching for homes currently listed, vistors will be able to get data on recent sales, the newest listings, and tons of information on local real estate.
The multiple listing service in the Puget Sound area is the NWMLS, which is owned by broker-members, is one of the best in the country, but unfortunately does not provide an easy (or inexpensive) way to provide listings to the public. This is in contrast to the MLS in San Diego that I used to work with, which was owned by the Board of Realtors and provided a quick and easy link for less than $200 a year.
YourEastsideBroker.com will soon be the premier site for homebuyers, sellers and those interested in local home values to get all the information they need to buy or sell a home. I hope that you are one of the first to visit and welcome your feedback.
