Star One Launches New Mobile Website

Star One Realtors has recently launched their new Mobile Website!  Unlike other companies, Star One sees the value of operating a mobile site with features similar to that of a mobile App - By creating and maintaining a mobile site, Star One can provide ALL the features that consumers use and enjoy when searching for properties and information - WITHOUT having to download a clunky app that needs to be updated and takes up space on your phone!  Also, by having an online site - means it works on your phone - be it iPhone, Android or Blackberry.  If you have a data plan - you can use it on your phone!

Simply point your mobile phone browser to:
The mobile site will load right up for you.

This simple interface immediately allows you to search by Address / MLS # or Agent Name.  Or use the "Find Near Me" tool to locate homes right where you are currently located.
You can also "Search for Properties", Look up an Agent by name and contact them directly through the interface.  Locate an office - and instantly launch your own mapping app to receive turn by turn directions.
Out on a Sunday and looking for Open Houses - One click locates available Open houses near you, by Address, or by features or Area.

Above, you can see the view if searched by agent.  You get immediate contact info for that agent, and can launch your phone's apps directly from the browser to contact them in the manner you prefer.  Also, below the agent info are their available listings.  If you select an individual listing, you get:
Yes - more detailed information, including all available photos, and particular statistics.  Also, A quick button will locate other homes close to the one your are viewing.  Now...for the cool part:
Just above the main photo, you can see a link for "English and Spanish".  By selecting one of these the website will audibly provide you the home information!  Allowing you to listen to the features, while scrolling through the photos of the home.  Now that's pretty sweet!

Remember - this allows you access to information on ALL properties currently listed in the Cincinnati MLS - not just the ones belonging to Star One Realtors.  So get out there and shop!
