SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 30, 2007) -, an online real estate community powered by crowd-sourced reviews, today announced a partnership with Australia's No. 1 real estate website, This union will help provide homebuyers, owners, renters and real estate agents with the most essential guide to finding the right property, in the right neighborhood.

It also allows for firsthand recommendations and negative experiences about local businesses, entertainment, services, lifestyle, and back road gems.

Some of the new features on include:

--  Street, City, State, Country Reviews
