SUNSHINE COAST REAL ESTATE SEARCH SERVICE
OPTIMIZED FOR MOBILE PHONES IS NOW AVAILABLE
SECHELT, BC, CANADA — November 26, 2009 — Sunshine Coast real estate agent Gary Little has today released the first mobile phone version of his internet-based property searching service. The service works with any modern smartphone with web browsing capabilities and the results are specially formatted to take into account the small display screens on these devices.
This new search service is ideal for finding virtually any MLS®-listed property for sale in Gibsons, Roberts Creek, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Pender Harbour, and neighbouring areas on the Sunshine Coast. The Sunshine Coast is a popular area of British Columbia located 40 minutes via ferry from West Vancouver.
The search service allows properties to be found in two different ways.
Wildcard searches are possible using the "*" character. For example, pano* matches the words "panorama" or "panoramic". Exclusionary searches are possible using the "-" character. For example, court -tennis matches all properties containing the word "court" except those that also include the word "tennis".
Results of either type of search are shown on the screen one property at a time and the user can switch between properties with a simple click. Photos are shown for each property as well as basic property information and a thumbnail map showing the property's location.
The Sunshine Coast real estate search service optimized for mobile phones is available at http://m.GaryLittle.ca/. The original version of the service, designed for use with desktop and laptop computers, is available at http://www.GaryLittle.ca/search.html.
The computer programming for the property searching service was done by Gary Little himself. He is a former marketing manager in the computer industry and the winner of two industry awards for excellence in software programming and design.
Real estate search innovation from Gary will continue early in the new year with the planned release of a mobile phone version of an interactive real estate map showing the locations of Sunshine Coast properties for sale. It will be a complement to Gary's popular full-featured interactive map at http://map.GaryLittle.ca/.

He is well known for his use of technology to provide compelling real estate tools for the general public, notably his interactive real estate map of the Sunshine Coast and his real estate statistics service.
