CNY REALTOR® debuts voice-powered home listing search
Consumers can ask Alexa and Google Assistant to help them find their next home
Syracuse, NY – April 30, 2019 - Starting today, consumers throughout Central New York can ask their favorite digital assistant to help them find their next home, check out open houses or even get their home’s value.
By saying “Alexa, CNY REALTOR” or “Hey Google, talk to CNY REALTOR, consumers can start a conversation with their favorite personal assistant who will guide them through a search of home listings or open houses. Homeowners can also ask CNY REALTOR to help them find out the value of their current home.
Free to use, consumers can specify their desired location, price range, number of bedrooms and other information to find homes that meet their needs. Alexa and Google Assistant will verbally report the top three matches and consumers will receive an email with complete listing details for all results with links to the listings at cnyrealtor.com. Plus, consumers can find out which of those homes have upcoming open houses.
