sharing my passion for real estate

Archive for the ‘Social Networking’ Category

Have you heard of this really cool thing called “The Web”?

It’s no secret that I love technology. It has been a passion of mine ever since my former IT director stopped me in the hall 16 years ago and showed me this really cool thing called “The Web”. It was about a three-minute conversation and we were off and running! Since that time it has been an amazing adventure as we discover new tools and develop cutting-edge technology that enhances the entire real estate experience. I’m very proud of John L. Scott’s award-winning website and the team who makes it all happen. It’s easy to take for granted all the amazing tools that we have at our fingertips, so to serve as a reminder, I’d like to highlight some of our most recent technology “wins”.

  • On behalf of JLS, Pat Giles (VP of Interactive Marketing) receives the Microsoft Innovation Award for the unique ability to effectively map influential and emergent technology to the business in a very relevant way. 
  • JLSconnect launches, using Microsoft technology Silverlight and Live Services in order to meet the consumer demand to make home buying an online, social experience.
  • JLS named a finalist for Inman’s for “Most Innovative Brokerage” award, which recognizes the ongoing innovation of JohnLScott.com (BTW: we’ve been nominated for this several times and won it in 2002).  
  • Property Tracker and GPS added to JLS’s mobile website and iPhone access optimized, enhancing the user experience on JohnLScott.com while providing access to listings and Property Tracker account information anytime, anywhere.
  • Clipboard with “Map My Tour” introduced
  • Social Networking “Share Feature” for Facebook and Windows Live making it easy to share listings, open houses, and agent profile pages.
  • The launch of lennoxscottblog.com
  • The launch of the JLS Facebook Fan Page

Congratulations to everyone who has a hand in making John L. Scott one of the most innovative real estate companies in the nation! And stay tuned for some exciting technology announcements in the coming weeks.

Are you a fan?

I’m excited to announce that we’ve launched a John L. Scott Facebook Fan Page! It’s a great place to post real estate news and community events, and keep in touch with agents and real estate consumers. We’ve added Facebook links to JohnLScott.com, the OnlineOffice, and Home Delivery emails. Everyone is welcome, so feel free to spread the word!
