Modern technology has given us wonderful tools that can make our lives easier in so many ways and Real Estate is no different.
Most people know they can search the MLS® on the website of their favourite REALTOR®, however you have more power at your fingertips and on your iPhone, iPad or Android Smartphone than you probably realized! Here is some info on a very cool, free application that once installed, combines real time GPS capability with the Calgary and surrounding district MLS® system, allowing you to search thousands of listings while on the move, quickly, easily and instantly!
What’s so unique about this? If you are a serious home buyer, it brings an entirely new dimension to looking for your new home. Once activated, the system uses GPS technology to create a map showing you all current listings within a 1 kilometre radius of your current location.
See a home you like while you are out for the evening and would like to know the listing details? Open your mobile MLS® app and click on the pin indicating the home on the map. The price, listing details including photographs and all related information is there for you instantly.

Your Own Personal and Private Online Real Estate Office
Your mobile app can also be combined with your online VOW Virtual Office Website, another freely available service. People are often hesitant to “sign up” because they are unaware of what it is, and are concerned about personal privacy, however sign up simply allows the system to create file space for a system personalized to you, allowing you to take advantage of more than just the simple MLS ® search engine.
Setting up your personalized system is quick and easy, and provides you with the ability to do custom searches for homes or properties. When you sign up for a free account the system creates your personal real estate virtual office where you can organize your home research, organize folders for your searches and much more.
