+ Michael Saunders & Co. signs on to Facebook platform
Michael Saunders & Co. has become the first Florida-based brokerage to sign on to a new Facebook-based real-estate platform available through Roost Inc., a real-estate technology company that displays more than 4 million listings. The platform is an extension of Roost’s free Social Real Estate Toolkit, released earlier this year, and is the first Facebook application that integrates a full MLS-compliant property search.
Michael Saunders & Co. is one of 12 real-estate brokerage companies throughout the United States to sign on to the service. The company’s agents will be able to use MLS searches on their own Facebook pages through a premium application that will be available early this summer. Brokers pay Roost a flat monthly fee for the service.
“It became clear to us some time ago that Facebook, chief among other social-networking platforms, was filled with strategic marketing opportunities for our company, but we wanted to make sure we approached it properly and in a way that was at once effective, efficient and coherent from a brand perspective,” said company founder and CEO Michael Saunders in a prepared statement. “Roost made it very easy to move forward with confidence because it disseminates real-estate content we know customers want, then customizes it to reflect the values of our brand.”
