Having spent many months reimagining home search from the ground up to make it smarter, faster and easier for home shoppers to find their dream home, while also making sure agents and brokers have the opportunity to connect with consumers more frequently, the new site introduces many first-to-market features for the industry and is a game changer for consumers searching for their next home.
