Qazzoo, a consumer powered search engine startup based in Annapolis, Maryland, has just announced expanding to include additional offices in Oklahoma City. The platform, which is in effect directly connects consumers with suppliers, has experienced very rapid growth since launching at the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Tradeshow in May 2012.
For real estate professionals, and those in search of homes, Qazzoo represents a significant business opportunity. Qazzoo pretty much turns the business of lead generation on its head by effectively creating a C2B relationship, home buyers listing their needs so that businesses (agents) can connect with them locally. The success of the business proposition has caused a need for a quality, technical, and customer service in Oklahoma. Jim Buffington, Qazzoo senior VP of sales, commented on this latest move:
"We are starting out with additional client services and user experience out of the Oklahoma City location. After months of research Oklahoma was selected because of several factors including an educated workforce and low cost of living. Keeping technical support and research and development in our Annapolis office allows us to maintain the integrity of the development team and continue to tap into the technical talent that is abundant in the Washington DC, Baltimore corridor."
The Qazzoo difference is an interesting business innovation more so than a technical innovative one. The consumer-powered search engine, particularly when focused on the point of pain for the real estate industry, turns out to be a huge "win-win" at the local level. For potential buyers being connected to sellers with the right properties in the right locations is a no brainer. For agents, guaranteed leads at a fraction of conventional costs is the big win.
Qazzoo can all but eliminate ad budgets for real estate agents in some instances. High quality home buyer leads, connecting agents with serious buyers, and connecting on the basis of filtered criteria, this is a great way to shortcut and economize the whole buying and selling proposition. Qazzoo's benefits for REALTORS® include:

Qazzoo is not all what it is cracked up to be. The leads are nothing but recycled leads from USHUD.com and other sites owned by Heavy Hammer inc. It is much cheaper and cost effective to purchase leads through Qazzoo as to paying a $200 a month to be the exclusive realtor on the other sites. Most of the leads are junk but with Qazzoo you can pick and choose when you want to spend your hard earned dollar!!
Not surprised by the quick growth of Qazzoo! The consumer search engine allows me to hand pick the leads I want to work with. So thankful for this essential, lead generation tool!
Great News and congratulations to QAZZOO on it's Oklahoma expansion success. This is only the beginning!
It's great to see someone with a .com (esp. in real estate) grow. It helps to reassure me that things are indeed getting better.
Great concept that was too long in coming to the internet. Select only the leads that you can help and spend time wisely instead of chasing down leads that don't qualify or spend thousands on cost per click. Qazzoo does in fact rock!
We're so glad to have you on the QAZZOO team! Even greater things are in store down the road.
