PRLog (Press Release) – Jul 09, 2009 – As a way to better serve its existing subscribers and offer an industry-leading solution to potential new customers, GetMyHomesValue.com announced the beta release of its latest version of “Prospect Maximizer,” a popular client relationship management (CRM) program for real estate agents, on Thursday.
Prospect Maximizer is a CRM tool originally designed by GetMyHomesValue.com in 2007 to meet the needs of real estate agents who subscribe to their lead generation and internet marketing services. Described as an easy-to-use, automated follow-up system, Prospect Maximizer can keep agents in contact and up to date with every lead they gain through GetMyHomesValue.com. Keeping track of scheduled events, calls, meetings and other communication with prospects is also automated through the system.
As the web has evolved, however, so have the needs of GetMyHomesValue.com subscribers. Last September, when Inc. Magazine released its list of the 500 fastest growing private companies in the US, GetMyHomesValue.com was rated the 16th fastest growing private company related to real estate. Earning that recognition was just one of the catalysts for the upgrade to Prospect Maximizer, which has become essential to GetMyHomesValue’s subscriber satisfaction.
“Our subscribers requested a faster, easier to use product for managing their contacts,” said Steve Young, co-founder and CEO of GetMyHomesValue.com. “Listening to our customers has always been important to us, but we knew we had to take things to the next level across the company after making the Inc. 500. With Prospect Maximizer, we found that we had an opportunity to improve create something industry-leading.”
In addition to a completely redesigned user-interface, the latest upgrade of Prospect Maximizer will include mobile device notifications of new leads and appointments, seller and buyer marketing tools, and a collaborative marketing project still in development.
An announcement of the official release of Prospect Maximizer 3.0 is expected in the coming weeks. Social networking websites like Twitter and Facebook are just a few of the places GetMyHomesValue.com expects to announce the launch of the newest version of Prospect Maximizer. Make sure you are socializing with them by following GetMyHomesValue.com on Twitter.
Access to the CRM has always been complimentary with a monthly subscription to GetMyHomesValue.com’s lead generation services. More information about Prospect Maximizer can be found at the GetMyHomesValue website.

What is going on in the real estate market these days? With all of the homes built and the price of property going down, I am sure the price you paid for your house yesterday could be higher than the price you can get for it today. This came to light after I asked myself “what is my house worth?”
I had tried having a home appraisal done by searching in the phone book and found myself talking to a lot of answering machines and asking them if they could tell me what is my house worth. I spent more time waiting on them and trying to find an appraiser that I was on the verge of giving up.
It you wonder what your house is worth and do not want to spend a lot of time and effort looking to find an appraiser, get connected with a real estate agent for a quick and reliable answer on your property value dilemma.
