The Creig Northrop Team, of Long & Foster Chooses Onboard Informatics to power Lifestyle Search Widget and Neighborhood Navigator on their state-of-the-art website, designed by SM Sold
Innovative search experience and community pages allows website visitors to find the neighborhoods that best meet their lifestyle needs in Maryland, and surrounding areas
August 25, 2011 – New York, NY. Onboard Informatics, the premier data and technology services provider to top-tier real estate, media, and technology companies, is supplying robust community information through Neighborhood Navigator, as well as Lifestyle Search for The Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster; the top real estate team in the state of Maryland, and #2 in the United States. These content solutions were a part of the launch of their new website, www.northropteam.com, designed by the talented real estate marketing agency, SM Sold.
The Lifestyle Search Widget, an innovative home buyer search tool, powered by Onboard Informatics, allows The Creig Northrop Team website visitors to search for a home based on specific criteria that is important to them – excellent schools, family friendliness, a fun & hip area, golfer’s paradise, to name a few – prior to searching for a home in a neighborhood that may not possess the qualities important to them.
“We are aware, now more than ever before, that 90 percent of shoppers start their home search online,” said Creig Northrop, principal of The Creig Northrop Team. “We are the leading real estate resource in the Maryland and Washington, D.C. area and that means staying ahead of the curve and meeting our technology savvy consumers where they are most comfortable. We listened to our customers and what they want is an innovative, five-star website that combines all of the great services we offer.”
Lifestyle Search, paired with Neighborhood Navigator is a perfect marriage of two solutions. Neighborhood Navigator provides the property detail pages, which feature easy-to-read graphs and charts of community information, including recent home sales data, population demographics, school information, crime data, and nearby establishments, allowing the homebuyer to receive a full picture of the area, all before falling in love with a home.
“We are thrilled that The Creig Northrop Team has chosen to feature Onboard’s industry-leading Lifestyle Search feature and data solutions on its state-of-the-art website,” states Marc Siden, CEO, Onboard Informatics. “As a leading real estate firm in Maryland, they have the responsibility to their consumers as well as their agents, to provide cutting-edge technology and maintain a competitive edge in the marketplace.”
“Today, real estate professionals need the advantage of technology to compete. SM Sold offers a web-based content management system that provides Internet marketing and social media tools to keep them connected with prospective buyers and sellers,” states Joseph Freedman, Sales Director, SM Sold.
