ATLANTA, GA (June 28, 2016) – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties introduces a new company website and an innovative new property search platform.

Immersive video increases traffic, improves retention and achieves higher conversions according to studies by Marketing Sherpa, Comscore and Social Media Today.

Future plans include testing video scenes that highlight company programs such as MEGA Open House events and other scenes that create emotional connections with consumers and real estate agents.
SEARCH3 is a very innovative new property search platform that is also mobile responsive for all devices. The platform provides a map-based search that is very fast, shows more properties, offers more custom search options and includes usability attributes that make the experience better for consumers. The interface is touch-centric for mobile devices and also works great on larger ultra HD displays.
