Technology that works!
National Referrals System
The National Referral Network links all of our offices in South Africa. Our system ensures that your referral gets tracked from the onset up until the successful transaction stage.
The Century 21 website has been developed with the latest cutting edge technology. Buyers can browse listings in the comfort of their own chairs and find their dream home while sellers will gain access to one of the biggest real estate internet marketing networks in the world.
Approximately half of our digital audience, buyers, sellers and investors search for property using a handheld device. The Century 21 mobile website allows them to browse for a home while in line at the grocery store, during a break in a meeting or sitting on the couch with a tablet in the evening.
To better serve this trend Century 21 also features a GeoSearch facility, an architecture that enables the quick and easy search capabilities ‘property near me’ & ‘on show near me’ which integrates the popular Google Maps technology to plot properties near you.
