Savannah, GA (Dec. 15, 2010) — Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty in Savannah, GA today announced the launch of a free Sotheby’s International Realty® mobile application and mobile web search, SIR Mobile, that works on standard cell phones and smartphones across all mobile carriers, allowing consumers to view all homes for sale in Savannah and the surrounding area.
The Sotheby’s International Realty mobile app uses GPS, when available, to locate the user and display listings in the immediate area. Users also can search by a U.S. address, city or zip code to see property details for all homes for sale in a specified area including price, square footage, estimated mortgage, taxes, features, maps and pictures. By the end of the year users will be able to search for all homes represented by the brand’s network outside the United States.
A Refine Search feature allows users to narrow their search by selecting a price range, property type and number of bedrooms and bathrooms. If a user has questions or wants a tour of the property, the Call feature connects them to a Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty representative.
To download the app, consumers can text SIR to 87778 or visit www.celiadunnsir.com to send a text
message to their phone with a link to download the app. The app was created by Smarter Agent, the leading mobile real estate provider in the United States, to create innovative ways for buyers to search for homes and interact with their agents.
“With the launch of this app, Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty now can offer clients and
prospects a mobile house-hunting tool available across all carriers on standard cell phones and
smartphones including BlackBerry, iPhone, Android and the Palm webOS,” said Celia W. Dunn
broker/owner. “Consumers now can have instant access to detailed property information right at their fingertips.”
