Social Home Shopping

    While a majority of buyers begin their home search online, many also seek advice from their family and friends about the best places to live. Two neighborhood search tools are taking that activity a
    step further.

    Zillow’s Neighborhood Advice tool helps buyers and renters
    learn more about neighborhoods from their Facebook friends.
    While browsing on Zillow, users are prompted to activate the Map
    My Friends Facebook app to see where their Facebook friends live
    and check into most often. As users search for homes in a specific
    city or neighborhood, Neighborhood Advice will recommend
    Facebook friends who are connected to those areas who users may
    contact for tips and advice.

    Neighborhood Suggester, produced by Robot Workshop, is a
    search widget that features a drag-and-drop interface that helps
    home shoppers find neighborhoods that best suit their lifestyle.
    The tool comes in two versions: a widget that agents can embed
    into their website and a Facebook app. Users select the six most
    important qualities of their ideal neighborhood, and Neighborhood
    Suggester recommends up to 10 neighborhoods and ZIP codes
    that match their criteria.

    “Aloha, I am in the Coast Guard and my husband is a self employed landscaper, together we are very hard workers, but we aren’t the only ones. Team Lally is a hardworking real estate team who deliver exception customer service, care about their customers needs, remain patient and cater to customers ultimate desire. We purchased a beautiful home in Makakilo August 2012. When Team Lally showed us the house for the first time, we said “this is the one we want and we will wait a year if we have to.” Team Lally understood our end desire, accommodated us, and didn’t try to detour us into another purchase. They remained patient and informative through the short sale process and in the end, six months later, we got the house we wanted and felt relieved that we had an outstanding team who assisted us in making our dreams come true. Thank you Team Lally, I will always refer your team and I hope others will trust in your team as we did. Mahalo Crystal & Sandro”
