CEO Update: Year-end Wrap Up

/
It’s that time of year where all of us take a moment and look back and assess our successes and challenges, as well as look forward to what the coming year. RPR has had a tremendous year of opportunities and achievements and I would like to take a moment and give you an overview of some of the highlights:

RPR v1.10, Appraiser Tool Sets and NAR Annual

/
Just prior to the NAR Annual Convention in Anaheim, RPR released version 1.10. New functions include a steam-lined new user account sign-up wizard, enhanced and updated census and demographic information in the RPR Neighborhoods tab, and a new investment analysis tool on every property. We also addressed over fifty internal system enhancements suggested by users though our customer supports systems.

CEO Update: RPR v1.9, Broker Tool Sets and more

/
On October 10, 2011 the RPR Application became was launched to over 42,000 REALTORS® in the MRIS markets which include Washington D.C., Maryland, Northern Virginia, and parts of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. This launch follows a combined effort of RPR’s data and integration staff, Industry Relations Team and MRIS’s technical staff who worked diligently over the summer to offer RPR’s parcel centric data sets and advanced search and reporting functions to agents and brokers in one of the largest regional MLSs in the country.

How-To: Best Apps for Presenting RPR Reports on the iPad

/
A few months ago we launched MyRPR.com; the site is aimed at documenting real stories of RPR users. Today I wanted to give a little “how-to” behind one particular story that agents keep talking about. It comes from Gordon Corsie, a REALTOR®, east of San Francisco.  Gordon needed to prep for a listing presentation quickly. He turned to RPR and prepared a report on the home, then used his iPad as the presentation tool.  His sellers loved it and he found it to be an effective and efficient way of organizing his presentation.

RPR Now Available to MRIS Customers
