Largest LGBT Real Estate Site Unveils a Total Makeover

GayRealEstate.com, the world’s largest and most popular online LGBT real estate and mortgage finance network, will celebrate the end of the year with a completely revamped and much more extensive and dynamic new website..

For many years, members of the global LGBT community have taken advantage of numerous free resources provided by GayRealEstate.com – the biggest source of LGBT real estate and mortgage information on earth. But now the LGBT community has even more to look forward to, because Gay Real Estate (GRE) recently completed a comprehensive and exciting revamp of its entire site. Features include a totally fresh design, a more intuitive user-friendly experience, and literally hundreds of brand new sub-sites that offer customized information based on specific real estate locations..

“The GRE site has a fantastic new look and the improved navigation makes it easier for web surfers to find exactly what they are looking for,” explains Greg Moreno, President of LionCube Software®. LionCube is a professional web consulting, design, and application development company based in Tacoma, Washington, and was chosen to create the new site..

LGBT buyers and sellers can use the site to find qualified gay-friendly Realtors virtually anywhere in the world, and Realtors can likewise use the site to connect with new LGBT clients or showcase listings. Because the site now has hundreds of new resources organized by location, it is possible to simply go online and do fast and easy searches of any destination – from anywhere in the world – 24 hours a day. “There are 850 new sub sites, all related to LGBT real estate, and they focus on specific areas or locations,” Moreno describes. “So if someone is particularly interested in the Seattle LGBT market, for example, there is now a dedicated sub-site, ‘seattlegayrealestate.com,’ which is especially focused on that city.”.

Other features on the GRE site include new map search pages, full-page profiles of individual real estate brokers and agents, and a vast library of archived articles and news items related to LGBT real estate and mortgage finance topics. The commercial real estate sections of GRE have also been removed, a decision that was made in order to focus exclusively on the needs of those interested in residential property. Those who want to buy, sell, or relocate can instantly communicate their preferences to agents who serve particular locations, and real estate agents can self-maintain their own listing pages by simply logging on to the site and making whatever edits and changes they want. For those in the market for a home, the site is a virtual one-stop resource where it is possible to not only find Realtors but also connect with gay-friendly mortgage lenders, mortgage brokers, and insurance companies. Every type of residential property is included, so regardless of whether you want a single family home, a condo, an urban loft, new construction, or a vacation home you can find it all on GRE..

The renovated site has generated quite a buzz, and has attracted lots of interest from home buyers and homeowners as well as real estate professionals. One of the first people to join the newly upgraded GRE site as soon as it was launched was Madison Hildebrand, star of Bravo's hit reality series “Million Dollar Listing.” The internationally known Hildebrand – who specializes in luxury property in his hometown of Malibu, California, is an award-winning Realtor who was included in Realtor Magazine’s 2008 list of “30 Under 30” – a recognition of success within the industry for agents under age 30. Although he is relatively young and has been practicing real estate for only five years, Hildebrand has already sold more than $100 million worth of property – while also becoming a TV star who was featured on the cover of the autumn 2009 issue of Pink Magazine..

GayRealEstate.com and its group of 875 websites is the largest database of gay, lesbian and gay-friendly Realtors and other real estate professionals. Plus the site – which was first established almost 20 years ago – is entirely gay-owned and operated. One of the most innovative sites designed and created by GRE is the popular GayNeighborhoods.com, an interactive website based on the concept of social media networking. The site provides a forum and resources for posting information and reviews about great LGBT cities, towns, neighborhoods, and enclaves..

Visitors can find a fabulous new community to live in while also posting personal comments and insights about the LGBT places with which they are familiar. All the information is carefully screened to weed out advertising and promotional commentary, so it is a trustworthy resource for learning and sharing – and for helping to build the international LGBT community one person and one neighborhood at a time. Because GRE has always been passionately dedicated to promoting the LGBT community, the company also has a longstanding commitment to philanthropy. Each year GRE donates more than $50,000 to a wide range of deserving, respected, and energetically proactive LGBT organizations..
