HOUSTON-Clients spending days driving around in search of their ideal properties with the help of UrbanRealtors.com won’t have to wait for their agents to flip through maps as they search out addresses.

The broker and home-consultant company has begun installing Global Positioning Satellite systems in its vehicles. With the help of satellites, drivers will be able to input a starting address and destination address and get voice-prompted directions on the best route.

UrbanRealtors.com also uses such technology as customer-directed online home searches of all MLS property listings in Houston, each of which includes statistics, valuations, maps and the ability to instantly schedule appointments at those properties. Other tech offers include Talking House radio broadcasts, virtual tours and online audio tours for its featured listings.
