San Francisco, CA – May 9, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Zephyr Real Estate, with its award-winning website, continues to excel in the social media arena as well as in customer service and accessibility. One of the website’s powerful features is its collection of narrated videos highlighting many of San Francisco’s neighborhoods. To further augment those videos, Zephyr now has channels on YouTube, Metacafe and DailyMotion, showcasing several of those neighborhoods.
Take a virtual walk through well-known tourist favorites such as North Beach and Haight Ashbury, a stroll through residential Noe Valley, Pacific Heights and South of Market, or meander through those enclaves known only by locals like Cole Valley, Golden Gate Heights, Sea Cliff and newly-defined Yerba Buena. There are 36 neighborhoods spanning the City with dozens more underway for release later this year.
“As social media continues to change the way we communicate, Zephyr will stay at the forefront in taking advantage of those opportunities,” stated Melody Foster-Brown, Director of Marketing. “Zephyr will stay ahead of the curve while ensuring its website is robust, client friendly and invaluably informative,” she added.
The website features detailed neighborhood profiles that include market trends, descriptions, maps, demographics, properties for sale, and open homes for each of the 89 neighborhoods that comprise San Francisco. More than half of those neighborhoods include interesting and informative videos, which highlight shopping, dining, cultural, climatic and transportation information.
In addition to videos, detailed maps, statistics, and property searches, visitors can sign up for a free MyZephyr account to gain access to additional MLS information. Registered users can search sold and pending properties, save favorites, track a property’s value, receive price change updates and get new listing email alerts.
