Hold me close, Sway me more...

What do you get when you cross Michael Buble with Microsoft and real estate? Sway!

What is Sway?

For starters, Microsoft Sway is COOL! If PowerPoint, SharePoint, OneNote and Wordpress had a baby, it would be Sway. 

Building an interactive story takes seconds with Sway's dynamic drag and drop interface. Users can embed images, videos, documents and even social media content to create reports, presentations, online photo albums, blog entries, and more...  As you build your Sway content, it publishes live to web and becomes sharable with a direct link. Users are permitted share editable links for collaborative projects (to invite others to contribute or modify the project), and then there is a third option to share the completed project to docs.com, to be indexed for public visibility.

What Can Sway Do For Realtors?

Our TEAM has been playing around with Sway for real estate industry uses. From creating single property websites and client newsletters to designing brokerage training modules for on-demand agent access, Sway fits like a glove.

How Much Does Sway Cost?

As of now, Sway is free to use, and can be accessed as a web-based app (compatible with older versions of Windows or Linux operating systems), through the Microsoft App Store for Windows 10, and through the Apple AppStore for iPhone and iPad users. 

What Does A Sway Presentation Look Like?

We never thought you would ask! :-)

We love our Realtor friends, and thought you might like to see our concept of a single property website, Sway style!  Giving one of our featured listings center stage, please allow us to introduce you to 132 Peachtree Drive, Coppell, TX 75019.

What kind of feedback from consumers have you had regarding Sway?  Has this been something that consumers have indicated they really like?

Amanda, this presentation is incredible.  The consumer experience is detailed and enjoyable.   I feel like I have visited this home in person. 

We would love to see you at the Dallas meet-up on Thursday.
