Homefolio was a technological leap for enabling REALTOR to homebuyer communication. The idea was conceived when I was looking to purchase a home around 2013 and discovered that the process still involved receiving archaic non-mobile friendly emails from my realtor when listings hit the market. On top of that, collaboration was a mixture of email, text messages and confusion regarding which listing was being discussed.
Homefolio filled that gap, by providing a sleek mobile application, that would allow a homebuyer to connect with their agent, and then do the search process together. At any time the homebuyer could communicate their feelings about listings directly using either a built in rating system, or using the listing threaded chat. If the homebuyer was really interested, they could immediately request a showing and the agent could book the showing and set the showing dates directly in the app.
The application had many more features which enabled it to become a marketing staple for agents that wanted their own apps, including the ability to share the app directly on facebook. It also integrated with a desktop application to make chatting and viewing users listings easier as well, it enabled agents to create and customize a multi-theme website for themselves.
In 2018 Homefolio had some decent traction in Edmonton and Calgary, but ran out of funding and was shut down mid 2018.
