Ebby.com is Dallas’ most up to date Realtor-driven website. I use it to find interesting open houses, check listings, and the like. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s seen a property listed on Ebby.com that hadn’t yet reached the originating broker’s site.
Other local brokerages have great sites, too. Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International is easy to navigate with quality graphics. (Don’t worry, we’ll dish on them in a future column.) To a buyer, an agent’s “welcome mat” is their website. What’s the quality and search-ability of their web site? Is it easy on the eyes? Poor or slow, cumbersome or clunky, and buyers are off to another site.
As a buyer, I’d long ago setup an Ebby Alert daily email for any new listings in the Oak Lawn and Turtle Creek areas. But recently I got to wondering … was there a way to create an Ebby Alert just for high-rises?
I popped a note off to Ruth Johnson, Ebby’s Implementation and Web Manager to see.
Short answer: You can.
Long answer: You can do a lot more than that
