iHomefinder is pleased to announce that Timothy Hedges of The Hedges Group has chosen Optima Express for his website.  Timothy has in-depth expertise in contract negotiation and risk management. He specializes in residential income, vineyard and commercial properties. Timothy also enjoys working with first-time home buyers and finds it a rewarding  experience to help his clients purchase their first home. He finds it equally satisfying to help investor clients find properties to build and strengthen their portfolios. Geographically, Timothy represents buyers and sellers in the areas of Healdsburg, Petaluma, Santa Rosa and Sebastopol.  He selected iHomefinder Optima Express to ensure his Wine County real estate clients and prospects have access to fast, easy-to-use and efficient online property search. iHomefinder has been a leader in secure MLS search for over fourteen years. With branded Emails Alerts, Facebook Property Search, Facebook Featured Properties and customizable Visitor Registration, Optima Express delivers a wide variety of ways for Timothy to deliver excellent online property search information to his clients and prospects.

With branded Email Alerts, Optima Express automatically notifies Timothy's subscribers when new listings come on the market that meet their saved search criteria. These emails are sent to all subscribers when there are changes in price on all listings that match their saved searches. His emails are all branded with his company's logo reinforcing the value that his firm is delivering to the subscribers. Delivering this valuable information on a daily basis to subscribers helps Tim convert his subscribers to clients.

The Facebook Search and Featured Properties Application enhances Timothy’s Facebook Business page. There Facebook visitors can conduct full MLS/IDX property searches and see all of Timothy's Featured Listings displayed. The Facebook App is another way in which Timothy can help drive visitors back to his full website.  Once the main website, visitors are able to easily share favorite properties with friends and family through email, Facebook, Twitter and hundreds of other social media .  In our social media driven world, this will enhance Tim’s website presence.

Tim will have the ability to configure his website to require visitor registration.  By choosing to have visitors register to enter specific areas of his website, Tim is able to gather important information that helps him turn visitors into clients.  An agent or broker can decide exactly where in the search process visitors must provide contact information in order to proceed. With more information about his visitors, agents and brokers can deliver superior customer service.

In the Sonoma County Wine Country area, iHomefinder Optima Express will make Tim’s website a powerful tool in his real estate business.  Timothy is investing in growing his online presence now and for the future with tools such as branded email updates, Facebook search and Facebook apps, and customizable visitor registration. Timothy and The Hedges Group are allowing their visitors to better manage their online real estate experience either from a computer or hand held device and select their brokerage firm when it is time to make the move.
