(Toronto) – JAN 29, 2013 — WebsiteBox a real estate industry upstart that provides complete, hosted websites to real estate professionals for a one-time payment of $99 — has today acquired RealtySoft.com from its parent Atigana, Inc., of Toronto.

WebsiteBox recently premiered — at Inman’s 2013 Real Estate Connect conference in New York — three do-it-all $99 real estate website packages that agents, teams, and offices can use to build real estate websites that help them showcase properties, manage customer relationships and provide mobile-friendly site access to their clientele. The company’s value offerings were quickly labeled by the Real Estate Marketing Insider as the Web Marketing Story of the Week.

RealtySoft.com, also based in Toronto, has developed high-value, low-cost web marketing tools for North American agents and brokers since 2008. Prior to the acquisition of RealtySoft.com, WebsiteBox licensed Internet Data Exchange/Multiple Listing Service (IDX/MLS) from RealtySoft.com.

The acquisition of RealtySoft ensures that we can offer both the best value and best full-service offering in the real estate website arena, said WebsiteBox founder Kurt D. Lynn. We look forward to integrating them into our overall mission of providing real value to the REALTOR®.

RealtySoft.com founder Peyman Aleagha said that existing RealtySoft.com customers will be offered the opportunity to migrate to WebsiteBox if they choose but may continue with their current services.

Aleagha will transition to the CEO role in WebsiteBox while Lynn will continue as Chairman.
