Keller Williams Foothills Dan Skelly introduces new mobile app

Free Mobile App From Dan Skelly at Keller Williams Evergreen

I am Dan Skelly, a Realtor in Evergreen, CO that specializes in luxury homes for sale, horse properties and ranches. I understand how hard it can be to find a home. That is why I am introducing my free real estate app. Many of my home buyers were getting frustrated with apps the big real estate sites (won’t mention any names here). They were returning results for properties that sold years ago. The homes haven’t been on the market for years and they were driving around looking for houses that weren’t even for sale. I respect your time a little more than that. So my app updates and removes, sold and under contract properties at 5 am everyday.

So what features does my app have? Well too many to list but the ones most people like are, up to date listings, map searches, detailed MLS data searches, nearby homes for sale when you are driving around and see a home for sale you can open your app and get all the details about the property. You can save properties and request info right then and there.

It is very simple to download my free real estate app. You can have the link sent directly to your pone, download from the app store or Google play. You can also  text “kw2jg0hwz” to 87778 and download very easily.
