Seattle-based online real estate brokerage and referral site Estately has launched in Houston and Austin, adding some 50,000 listings to its property search database.

Estately expanded to Dallas, Fort Worth and San Antonio in January and February. The latest additions bring the site’s market total to more than 22 markets, according to Galen Ward, the company’s co-founder and CEO.

"Texas is wrapped up … so we are moving on to other markets next," Ward told Inman News.

Estately is licensed in Washington, California, Illinois, New York, Georgia, Texas and Pennsylvania, and pulls listings from more than 20 multiple listing services that serve those states and some adjacent areas, such as Oregon, Virginia and Washington, D.C. Listings are updated every 15 minutes, Ward said.

Earlier this month, Estately accused one of Canada’s largest real estate brokerages, Sutton WestCoast Realty, of copyright infringement, alleging Sutton WestCoast’s property search site was "a near-perfect clone" of Estately. The Canadian brokerage was forced to refer website visitors to its franchisor’s national website following the dispute, but its property search capabilities have since been restored.

Ward said he had "no new news on our dispute with Sutton WestCoast Realty right now."
