Reason #4 – Online Searches

Here is where my owning a website called 40geeks makes perfect sense.  I love the online searches I do for my customers.   These online searches always start out as a mystery for me to solve.  Here is an example of my typical search process.

What house is available in zip code 76131 with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths below $150K?

I first log into the Matrix system, which is the front end of the listings database.   I do a quick search on the zip code matching that criteria.   This brings up all the listings in the zip code which is 45.

However, I know from my conversation with the customer that he wants to specifically live in the Chisholm Ridge Subdivision.  I know he is interested in the eastern part of the subdivision so I draw a circle around the map over the four block area he has designated.   The number goes down to 8, which falls under the 10 I always strive to give my customers.
