Inman News named Minneapolis-based Mobile Realty Apps the Most Innovative Real Estate Startup for 2012 during the Real Estate Connect conference last week in San Francisco.

We are proud to have been Mobile Realty Apps’ first MLS customer when we launched the smartphone app to all NorthstarMLS users as a core service.

“This has been a breakout year for us and we are honored to have been selected,” said Aaron Kardell, founder and CEO of Mobile Realty Apps. “Innovations such as HomeSpotter and full mobile professional access to the MLS are just a couple of the things we have led the charge on. I am even more excited by the product enhancements and new customers we plan to announce and deliver over the second half of 2012.”

Mobile Realty Apps expanded its mobile app earlier this year by adding a new feature called Homespotter, which is available to all NorthstarMLS subscribers. This feature is the first MLS-branded augmented reality mobile application technology of its kind, which overlays property information on a device’s live camera feed.

The awards selection process begins with nominations from readers and professionals in the industry. Nominations are then evaluated by the Inman News review team and winners are selected based on their ability to push the real estate industry forward by improving the real estate transaction process. This year there were 56 finalists in seven categories.
