Poe (0.16) Brings Broker Search & Report Customization
Agorafy rolled out its newest release, named "Poe" (0.16) this week and looks to further its goal of becoming the digital home for New York's commercial real estate community. Among the newest features is Broker Search, giving users the ability to search for professionals by areas of expertise. Also, Custom Reports gives users the ability to customize the reports they print from Agorafy prior to sending or presenting them to a client.
The Broker Search feature allows property owners, tenants, brokers and other professionals to search for specialists in the area where they need representation. Users can select which borough and neighborhood they are focused on as well as the areas of concentration (Landlord Representation/Tenant Representation) and area of expertise (Retail Leasing/Office Leasing/Building Management).
Agorafy populates and ranks the results based on the number of exclusives brokers have in the selected neighborhood(s). This gives property owners and commercial tenants a very strong idea of who is the go-to expert in the selected neighborhood.
Agorafy also uses information provided by each broker in their Professional Profile to populate search results and ranks them accordingly. This feature is especially important for brokers who specialize in Tenant Representation and Building Management and may not have a large number of exclusives on the market.
The newest release "Poe" also gives users the ability to customize the reports they print from Agorafy. This feature comes in extremely useful when brokers want to present clients with available listings via e-mail or when taking them on a tour of the property.
Users can select properties to be included in a report and then have Agorafy generate the pdf.
Agorafy users have the option when printing a report to generate the report "As Is" with the exclusive brokers contact information, or they can customize the report with their own contact information which is pre-populated by Agorafy.
Agorafy doesn't just view itself as a data provider to the commercial real estate community.
Every day our developers are working to build new features which allow brokers to maximize their time and work more efficiently. Agorafy is giving them an open platform to focus on building relationships and arranging deals.
Real estate professionals need to have a culture. But what is commercial real estate culture? More importantly, is there one standard commercial real estate culture across the board for every firm?
In a word, culture is community. It is the result of brokers effectively interacting with one another. Any broker community includes two rather important components: sociability, a measure of friendliness among members of a community, and solidarity, measuring that community's ability to pursue shared objectives. Agorafy aims to create higher levels of both on one central platform.
Richard Du, founder and CEO of Agorafy believes each broker plays an important role in that community. When the broker is strong, the whole community will be strong too.
