Milestone Realty Consultants Unveils a New Way to Search for Real Estate - Lifestyle Search

06/01/11 by Milestone Realty Consultants

Milestone Realty Consultants is pleased to announce the release of their new lifestyle search engine, an innovative home search tool that creates a personalized search experience for real estate customers. Through lifestyle search, users have the ability to search for homes based on parameters most important to them. Whether that’s family-friendly areas or homes close to highly rated schools, nightlife or shopping, the system will match each user’s requirements with a targeted list of ideal communities in their area.

Using a sliding scale, customers rank how important each criteria is to their particular lifestyle and needs. The system then finds the best neighborhoods to fit those criteria and showcases available homes in that area. Once they’ve found their ideal neighborhood, customers can narrow their search based on number of beds and baths, square footage, price range and more.

Judy Craft, Principal Broker at Milestone Realty Consultants had the following to say, "As real estate practitioners we understand the value placed on lifestyle choices rather than just bricks and mortar.  We are pleased to be the first real estate company in the state to offer this feature on our website.  We are dedicated to providing the complete real estate experience for our clients by focusing on their ideal living environment, not simply a price point."

As a member of The Active Enterprise Network, Milestone Realty has access to The Network’s technology platform and Onboard’s community data needed to power the lifestyle search engine. As one of the first members to implement this technology, Milestone Realty is able to further enrich the user experience and gain a competitive advantage in the Real Estate Industry.

“Through lifestyle search, not only is Milestone Realty providing a service that the competition doesn’t offer, but they’re able to engage the customer and increase the likelihood that they will buy or sell a home from them in the future. The unique approach and added convenience this functionality brings increases the usability of their site and creates a positive experience for their users. We’re excited about this new endeavor and feel this partnership will bring nothing but opportunity for Milestone Realty” states Ido Zucker, Managing Partner at Active Website LLC.

The search parameters within the lifestyle search engine are based on over a decade of Onboard’s experience developing Best Places to Live solutions for top publishers such as CNN/Money, U.S. News & World Report and BusinessWeek. To ensure accuracy of the search results, the search engine combines millions of data points ranging from population demographics to housing trends to local points of interest and more.
