Mark Howe’s career began like many Realtors®, working a second job to make ends meet. To add to the challenge, Mark’s start as a Realtor® in 1982 was compounded by interest rates as high as 20-plus percent. While many may have let a less-than-ideal market discourage their path, success in the form of a commission check encouraged him to continue his real estate career.

More than a year ago RPR decided it was time to upgrade what it offered for analyzing real estate investment opportunities. Based on years of REALTOR® feedback, we scoured the internet and trade show floors to assess what was available and began narrowing down our list of potential partners.
Realtors® are often looked at by clients as local economic experts, with expectations to time markets precisely, identify opportunities before anyone else, and to determine the optimal purchase or sale price for projects. Having the right resources can vastly improve their odds at projecting things accurately.
Here’s a unique opportunity for Associations to demonstrate the value of Commercial membership, enhance communications, and provide ongoing educational and business-building assets to their members.
