Sometimes the best way to find your next home is just by driving or walking the block. You learn so much about a neighborhood that way, just by going up and down streets, looking at front yards and landscaping, seeing people walking down the sidewalks, hear noisy dogs and see traffic in real time. And sometimes, while driving a neighborhood, you come across a home that’s too good to pass up. Your first instinct might be to call the number on the sign, but that might mean you can’t tour a property for several hours, if not a day or more. What do you do if you want to check out a property right then and there?
That’s the problem that Realocator solves, says David Maez, Realocator co-founder and broker at Vivo Realty Group.
“This app will revolutionize the way buyers and agents connect.” Maez said. “Mobile buyers want on-demand showings, and that’s what this app does. Comparable to UBER, buyers can visually see the cars of available agents ready to show you a home on demand.”

The app will be free for buyers, and carry a buyer rebate as an incentive to use the app and stay loyal to the agent.
“We feel it’s a win-win for the agent and the buyer. The buyer stays loyal and there’s a level of comfort for the real estate agent in knowing that,” said co-founder Bernice Maez.
The app will feature a handful of other features such as agent-to-agent referrals, agent safety, pay-per-showing, lenders, and an apartment app is already in the works. The company plans to launch in Texas August 15, with plans for further expansion rolling out soon.
