Real Estate Agents Accept Live Bookings Across Web Through BookFresh and Homethinking

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - October 29, 2009) - Real estate agents can now accept bookings from homeowners on their own web site as well as on Homethinking, a New York-based service that helps connect home owners to real estate agents, through a single, unifying service provided by BookFresh, the San Mateo-based startup company that offers an online appointment scheduling technology for small businesses.

BookFresh's solution will allow homeowners to book appointments online with one of Homethinking's experienced local real estate agents. The widget appears seamlessly on both, the agent's website and anywhere else they'd like to place it on the web. Bookings and availability are driven off the real estate agent's live calendar.

In addition, the BookFresh solution makes life easier for consumers who visit Homethinking. True to their mission of helping consumers make better real estate decisions, home owners can browse through various Realtors, review their performance history, and then book an appointment online at their convenience instead of having to line up a time via email communications.

Homethinking has utilized the BookFresh API which is available to web publishers in many service verticals including real estate. "We look forward to helping Homethinking lead the way in tech innovation for the real estate industry," said Ryan Donahue, Bookfresh's CEO.

"BookFresh offers a seamless solution to enable our customers to accept live bookings on their profile and property listings. We've seen tremendous uptake of the feature in our beta testing and agents are finding great value in allowing live appointment scheduling," said Niki Scevak, Founder of Homethinking.
