Every year our WK staff and agents have the opportunity to attend an international real estate conference hosted by Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE) and Luxury Portfolio International®. This selective group of over 2,000 real estate professionals span 25 countries on six continents. Educational sessions include topics such as the global economy, changing consumer demographics, evolving technologies and marketing strategies, and home and lifestyle trends. The relationships fostered at this conference allow us to be confident that, no matter where they move, our clients will receive the same exceptional quality of care and service that they receive from our own WK Real Estate associates and staff. The brokers we refer aren’t just names at a company, they are people we know and trust to take care of our clientele.
This year, as in years past, we received a variety or awards and nominations at the annual awards gala. We are deeply honored for this recognition, especially after our significant 2016 rebranding project. Our new, updated marketing approach is already proving to be enormously successful, allowing us to sell homes faster and more effectively than ever.

Have you ever been going someplace only to see a “ For Sale” sign in front of a home, and wondered what the listing price is? I do all the time. Many of you are as interested in real estate and homes as I am. I have a mobile application thru Wright Kingdom Real Estate that is so easy and fun to use.
Open this email on your iphone, ipad or tablet. Click here to download the mobile application. Then just click on “download App”. It’s that easy. This is a fun, free, no obligation easy way to check out home sales in a particular area. Once you’ve downloaded the App, just draw a circle on the map around the area you’re interested in. All of the homes currently for sale or under contract appear on the map. For more information about a specific property, just tap on the tag for that property. You can view property information and photos. If you find a property you’d like to view in person, please give me a call to schedule it for you.
If you have any trouble using the application, just give me a call. Have fun!
Wright Kingdom is excited to announce the release of our newest apps for iOS and Android! Our design, functionality and features have all received significant improvements! Here is a brief summary of the latest enhancements:
- Complete UI Redesign
We have completely redesigned the map, property detail, advanced search and realtor pages to integrate new features, enhance usability and embrace the more minimalist, “flat” aesthetic of iOS 7
- New Integrated Account Area
Replacing the dashboard on the left is an integrated account area, providing quick access to favorite properties, saved searches and notifications.
- Enhanced Map View
You are now able to tell the status of a property directly from its map pin. Polygon search has also received a huge boost in functionality due to our new search API. Additionally, we will be able to show relevant POI’s directly on the map.
- Enhanced List View
Instead of merely showing the map’s current properties, list view will gain full search capabilities.
- Enhanced Search View
We’re not offering much new functionality here, but rather a much easier avenue for clients to customize their search forms to their particular market’s needs.
- New Mortgage Calculator
We have enhanced the design and functionality of our mortgage calculator.
- Enhanced Open House Support
You can now easily add open houses into your device’s calendar.
