PRLog - Jul. 17, 2012 - Today, School Scout™ steps into the spotlight with the launch of its first application, School Scout PROFESSIONAL™, an online search tool that allows real estate agents to instantly find the schools that service a specific address or geographic boundary and find homes for sale within those schools’ boundary areas.

School Scout addresses the challenge often faced by Agents and prospective homebuyers who want detailed information about homes for sale that are located within boundary areas of schools that fit the buyers’ needs. “School and school boundary information is often fragmented and sometimes out of date, requiring hours of research, making calls or visiting multiple websites to gather the data one needs to make an informed decision,” said Mattie Baker, co-founder and chief executive officer, School Scout.  

Enter School Scout™ PROFESSIONAL , which enables agents to perform instantaneous, reliable school-based real estate searches that can easily be shared with clients. The application is unique in its ability to layer data, such as real-time Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data, school boundary data and school information such as ranking, within the same search.  School Scout™ is the first service of its kind to offer all three key pieces of information in one easy-to-use interface, which is the solution that real estate agents have been waiting for.

“School Scout is the must-have tool for any real estate professional who takes representing home buyers and sellers seriously,” Mike Sibilia, President, Santa Clara County Association of Realtors® 2011. “Mattie Baker and Kimberly Leal have developed a solution that solves a real challenge faced by many real estate agents. The School Scout solution saves the user hours of valuable time, not to mention frustration, by making the search easy and fast.”  

“As current trends show that schools are factoring more into the value of a home and becoming one of the top criteria considered when people are making a move, real estate agents need to be extremely knowledgeable about schools in order to better serve their clients,” said Leal, President and Chairman of the Board, School Scout. “According to data cited by The Wall Street Journal, better schools can even lead to fewer foreclosures. What we’ve developed is the fastest, easiest and most accurate way to match homes with schools, as well as allowing consumers to easily find a great real estate agent that specializes in those school boundary areas.”
