a fully electronic mobile real estate transaction
What’s is it? Homz Direct is a fully electronic mobile real estate transaction that removes the realtor and places the buyer and seller at the center of the transaction. Seems very cool, right? But, what happens if we remove the realtor from the operation?

Real state apps are really complex, they have a lot of rules and are very different
from the reality that I am used in my country, so I had to study a lot this field, learning how the rules works in United States.
On this job I was designated to create the full design of the app, the entire flow and the brand. We did a field research for 3 weeks with 5 potencial buyers and 5 sellers and we follow by close this users, step by step to understand every single detail of the transaction.
I Worked for 1 month on this project as I tried to create something easy to the user to understand and to walkthrough.
Simple steps - Register your data - Buy or Sell - Check bank register - Check for houses - contact - see the house and Deal
After the ALPHA version we distributed this app for a group of 10 users to test. After some notes and some improvements, the app is getting ready for BETA.
This was a really great project to work because I believe on this idea and how it can impact on people's life by transforming an old cultural process in something fresh and modern with just a simple idea.
