+ Michael Saunders & Co. launches mobile website
Michael Saunders & Co. announced the launch of its new mobile website, which will allow buyers to search properties on web-enabled phones.

Customers can visit from their smart phone to preview any property in Southwest Florida listed on the Multiple Listing Service. Additionally, potential buyers can view properties close to their location, find open houses and save properties for future reference. The website will automatically convert to the mobile version on a handheld device and is free of advertising.

“It’s no secret that mobile Internet usage is growing,” Michael Saunders, company founder and CEO, said in a prepared statement. “But what you may not be aware of is the breathtaking speed at which this is occurring. Within 18 months, more people will access the Internet through hand-held mobile devices than more traditional desktop or laptop computers. That’s a massive shift in how buyers search for properties; and why we are proud to offer this new technology tool as yet another service to our buyers and sellers.”

The website was created in collaboration with 1000 Watt Consulting, a California-based interactive marketing communications-and-design company, and Aumnia, a mobile web company also based in California.
