Dezrez Core API

Who are we?

Dezrez is an independent software vendor based in Wales, UK. We develop software for the property industry, and at the heart of all of our latest product offerings is the Dezrez Core API.

What is the Dezrez Core API?

The Dezrez Core API is the backbone to all of our latest product offerings, and is a programmatic interface to all operations that can be performed across all of these products.

It is based on JSON, and is secured using OAuth2.

What can I do with it?

People use our API primarily to deliver apps that deliver some value for Estate Agents, thier customers, or partners.

For example - many people use the API to deliver the very best online experiences for Vendors - allowing them to run thier own marketing, manage thier own viewings and even negotiate thier own sales.

We also have a basic integration option for websites, where we can supply a simple search function for getting Estate Agents properties on thier website.

If you want to get started, you just need to register your application with us, as below.

Learning resources

To help you understand how to use our API, we have compiled several resources that aim to bring you up to speed on what you need to know, quickly.
