SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- REALTORS® are again ahead of the curve by adopting mobile technologies that enable them to conduct business anywhere, anytime.

Mobile real estate marketing includes texting, mobile websites and mobile apps. REALTORS® use mobile marketing to inform consumers, keep track of transactions and stay in touch with clients.

Texting has been popular among REALTORS® for the last few years. Many REALTORS® optimize their websites for search engine marketing and for the mobile web. In the past year, the number of real estate apps has exploded and REALTORS® are creating or customizing apps to brand their businesses and stay connected with clients.

"Today's buyers want to immediately look up a house when they spot it from the road," said Karl Lee, President of the Santa Clara County Association of REALTORS®. "Our REALTOR® members are preparing themselves for what will eventually become an industry standard. We are proud to provide our members with technologies, such as TextMyMLS, that consumers demand."
