"People don't always have the convenience or time to wait until they can get home and sit in front of their computer to go online," said Mike Montsko, president of the Weichert Lead Network, a division of Weichert, Realtors. "Our new mobile site allows us to provide the same search experience home buyers have come to expect from our traditional Web site directly from their cell phone or other mobile device."
