Houston Realtors partner with city on consumer app

The Houston Association of Realtors has partnered with the city on a mobile app that provides location-based information about not only real estate — duh!? — but city government and local amenities and events.

“This is an example of public/private collaboration at its very best,” said Houston Mayor Annise Parker in a statement. “More people are moving to Houston than any other city in the nation. They need quick and easy access to real estate resources as well as general information about the city. This app meets the needs of our new residents while being equally valuable to those who’ve called Houston home for some time.” Source: har.com
