Interland Founder Ken Gavranovic Launches Interactive Real Estate Venture [16th December 2003]

ATLANTA, Dec 16, 2003 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Ken Gavranovic announced today the commencement of a new real estate operation created to leverage the Internet to provide home buyers and sellers with a results-driven program. The SimplySold(TM) system will save the typical customer as much as 5 percent off their real estate commissions, and complete the transaction up to 95 percent faster than the average brokerage company.

"When I first set sights on the real estate business, I was amazed at some of the information management systems and procedures in place that seemed to date back a hundred years," said Ken Gavranovic, founder of SimplySold Realty. "With my experience, I knew that a carefully designed Internet-powered system would revolutionize the real estate industry while saving customers a lot of money, and just as importantly, time. When I met Scott Dasher, I knew I had the right partner with the real estate expertise and business sense to make the vision a reality. We built this business on high standards for ourselves and our clients, to instill a highly-rewarding experience with any of the agents our clients work with."

"I have enjoyed a successful career in real estate for many years by developing repeatable programs to deliver a better and more consistent level of service to my customers," said Scott Dasher, president of SimplySold Realty. "Ken and I saw the tremendous potential in leveraging our mutual interests and ideas to create a powerful real estate alliance aimed at delivering a wider range of possibilities for home buyers and sellers to put more money in their pocket. I have been amazed at the number of agents considering switching to the SimplySold sales system. Our Internet-based formula dynamically links our clients to the valuable property information they need, providing advanced automation solutions that otherwise didn't exist."

How it works

Through the SimplySold Situation Analysis(TM) system, agents are able to determine the right price and commission program for each client, and calculate the projected number of months each house will be on the market given its particular characteristics, the demographics of the neighborhood and other demand variables. The system can also calculate the difference in time a house might be on the market by adjusting the target price and/or offering specific incentives. In the near future, Gavranovic says SimplySold agents will be able to tell a seller exactly how many buyers are active in their market for their house based on a number of variables, and within minutes of listing, actually present the house to those qualified buyers.
