SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Chime Technologies, an operating system for the real estate industry, announced today that it has acquired GeographicFarming, a turnkey, 360° marketing solution for real estate businesses. With this acquisition, Chime will add direct mail and telemarketing farming features to the powerful Chime real estate suite.
Chime's operating system aims to provide all the tools real estate professionals need to seamlessly run and grow their business. Its innovative tools make it easy to launch marketing campaigns, track leads' activities, build and nurture customer relationships, and effortlessly manage teams – anytime, anywhere. Over the past year, Chime has continued to evolve and expand its platform to address the full spectrum of agents' needs. This acquisition of GeographicFarming will enable Chime to enhance its existing features and add new capabilities, giving agents access to an even wider range of marketing tools to grow their brands, improve productivity and increase the bottom line.
"We are always working to serve a diverse range of agents' needs and push the real estate industry forward," said Matt Murphy, Chief Marketing Officer of Chime. "In GeographicFarming, we found a partner who's committed to the same goals. Their innovative approach to farming is a perfect complement to Chime's technology, and they represent a valuable addition to the Chime team."
"Our number one priority is our clients' success," said Jeff Campbell, CEO of GeographicFarming. "With the Chime integration, those clients can now leverage the powerful real estate operating system to expand lead generation through best in class technology, and save time as they focus on what they do best – selling homes and growing their business."
GeographicFarming provides fully customizable lead capture landing pages that offer multiple home value estimates, using an easy-to-navigate three-step process. Streamlining direct mail systems, GeographicFarming's templates and customizable designs fit any brand and market needs, and ensure marketing campaigns truly stand out from the crowd. Its effective, high-powered telemarketing features eliminate the need to spend hours each day on the phone. Instead, a dedicated call center utilizes proven scripts that generate and nurture new business leads, every day of the week.
GeographicFarming's mission aligns closely with Chime's, which is to provide a complete operating system that continually builds and transforms the business of real estate. This acquisition will enable the two companies to combine their resources and continue building the ultimate (and only) product agents need to supercharge their business.
The acquisition of GeographicFarming is the latest step in Chime's effort to not only fulfill agents' existing needs, but also to anticipate their future desires. Chime recently announced the launch of an AI-enabled smart dialer called Belle, as well as software to power drone technology, which has the potential to transform open houses and listings. By integrating GeographicFarming's direct mail and telemarketing features into the Chime suite, Chime will cement its position as the most robust, innovative real estate technology provider on the market.
