Oh, how I love back to school! Not just because I have kids, I was a teacher, and can’t get enough school supplies from Target. Actually, those are exactly the reasons I love back to school. But this year, there is one more reason for real estate agents to get excited about back to school. Education.com wants to give you helpful hyperlocal school information for your real estate blog or Website via their brand new SchoolFinder Tools.
The first super cool SchoolFinder tool (couldn’t resist) that is bound to peak your interest is the SchoolFinder Widget . You’ll fully understand it’s coolness when you start customizing it. Name your widget, enter a city, state or zip and then set your colors and size to match and fit your blog. Education.com sets your preferences and generates the code that you will need to insert into your blog or Website.
The SchoolFinder Widget provides a Google map of the market area you select with red pins representing each school. Simply choose a red pin to access school information including school name, address, grade levels, and quick links to SchoolFinder profiles and reviews. The widget also provides a scrolling list of all schools in your selected market area, as well as a search feature.
Now if you would like a more custom school solution and you’re already some kind of real estate technology guru, then perhaps you’ll want to learn more about the SchoolFinder Web Service. If you’re looking for something that is fully integrated with your blog, broker Website, or other application, then consider gaining access to the comprehensive SchoolFinder database vi a web service.

I had the opportunity to ask Seann Birkelund, VP of Business Development at Education.com, what he hoped agents would gain from these new tools.
When we built the SchoolFinder Tools, we recognized the increasing need among real estate agents to provide high-value, local information to their constituents and prospective clients. Neighborhood schools are an integral part of real estate and we hope that by eliminating the barriers that exist to accessing this information and making this information freely available, agents across the country will be able to offer more comprehensive information about the markets they serve directly on their own sites.
