IRVINE, Calif., May 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Nook Real Estate, an up-and-coming California based multi state brokerage, has announced that it will be providing Contactually, the intelligent CRM for real estate, to all its agents. Nook combines a next-level digital platform and marketing strategies with professional agents who have specialized knowledge of local neighborhoods and architectural styles. Knowing that an agent's success relates directly to the power of their network, they have chosen Contactually for customer relationship management. All agents will be provided with Contactually as well as training on how to use the platform's machine-learning capabilities to their best advantage.

At the start of 2018, Nook Real Estate announced the appointment of Mark Hughes as Nook Real Estate's president. Mark has had a distinguished career in real estate and executive leadership with positions at First Team, Sotheby's and Windermere and has ranked in the top one percent of agents worldwide. His ongoing work with Nook Estate has included coaching agents in building their businesses through focusing on their sphere.

"One of the most important things I tell agents to focus on is being of service to their network. I've used Contactually for years to manage my ever-expanding contact list and help me make sure those contacts are strong relationships," said Hughes. "I knew I had to bring the power of Contactually to Nook."

"I've known Mark for several years and I admire what he's doing with Nook," added Contactually CEO Zvi Band. "We are excited to bring Contactually's industry-leading CRM features to the Nook brand."
