Abstract

Recently there have been major changes in the real estate market, where everyone is investing in sell or buy properties, which meet their needs and suit their pockets. In this paper, a multi-agent system for real estate marketing where considered. The proposed system provides the clients with an easy and practical solution through advertising their property and searches for a buyer or seller on behalf of them. And The system makes use of agent’s technology as its core function for locating a suitable property among hundreds or even thousands of the offers. The proposed system provides clients with an Android mobile app developed using Java which works as an agent for establishing a communication with the other agents located on a server. On the server, there are many agents that work together to fulfill the main goal like sell agent, buy agent, and others, using the Symfony PHP framework. The SUS results confirmed that the rate of overall satisfaction was high nearly 76.66%, which is above average and highly acceptable.
