A: When your ad appears, instead of showing your contact information the following appears: "This seller has chosen to remain private. You may contact this seller via anonymous email by clicking here." The prospective buyer completes an on-line form and the system sends you an email without revealing your information to the prospective buyer.
Q: I want to place my vacation rental on business cards but the url to my page is so long I am afraid potential customers wont be able to find my ad listing when they come to your site, there must be a better way than having them type all of this! http://www.gsmvro.com/realestate/DisplayAd.asp?id=25
A: We agree 100%-every ad has a shortcut for example the property at http://www.gsmvro.com/realestate/DisplayAd.asp?id=25 can easily be accessed by simply typing www.gsmvro.com/pr25
