The app, called Push to View, was designed specifically with Millennial user habits in mind. The company believes the app will solve two pain points. It will give Millennials a portal where they can connect with a real estate professional or lender in a way that’s intuitive and comfortable to them. Also, Push to View will provide real estate industry professionals with a place where they can review and accept leads as their workflow allows.

Without revealing a consumer’s identity, Real Estate Answers instantly broadcasts questions to a pool of local real estate experts eager to offer their expertise and local knowledge. Answers are pushed to the consumer’s device as soon as they are received. Consumers can explore local activity by choosing from a list of nearby homes or enter any metro, city, ZIP code, or address in the United States or Canada to see questions and answers from distant locations. The app is available now for free download on iOS and Android devices.
