RPR® Expands Network of MLS Partnerships in Major Markets
As part of its ongoing servicing initiative to license local and regional MLS data for REALTORS®, Realtors Property Resource® (RPR®) is pleased to announce the execution of two new licensed partnerships in August 2015.
The Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS® (GLVAR) will now offer their 12,000+ REALTOR® members the opportunity to utilize RPR’s full functionality by integrating their MLS data within the RPR Platform.
“The Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS® is pleased to announce that the Association, serving over 12,042 members in Southern Nevada, has entered into a partnership with Realtors Property Resource®,” says Michele Caprio, GLVAR CEO. “This benefit will enhance the data and analytics our REALTOR® members can use to create customized market reports to assist their clients in the home buying and home selling process.”
“RPR is very pleased with the support by the leadership of the GLVAR to license their local MLS listing data within the RPR Platform for their REALTOR® members,” says RPR CEO Dale Ross. “With the launch of RPR Mobile™, now optimized for tablets, GLVAR’s REALTOR® members will receive the benefit having their MLS data integrated within the full array of RPR’s features, tools and reports, right on their smartphones and tablets. RPR would like to thank the leadership of the GLVAR for their decision to bring RPR’s full functionality to their REALTOR® members.”
Launch for the integration of GVLAR’s MLS data is targeted for late 2015.
Additionally, RPR is pleased to announce the integration of licensed MLS data for the Baldwin County Association of REALTORS® MLS’s 2,000+ members in Alabama.
“The REALTORS® of Baldwin County are excited about the opportunities presented through the agreement with RPR,” says Chief Executive Officer Sheila Dodson. “Being part of the REALTOR® organization through their membership with the National Association of REALTORS® and Baldwin County AOR MLS, ensures our members are able to have every possible resource at their fingertips. This allows them to offer the best service possible to their clients and customers. Not all real estate agents are REALTORS® and this is just one of the unique resources offered through membership. In the technology driven world of today, the best information can be available through this partnership with RPR and we are excited to have this to continue to be the local Real Estate resource for Baldwin County.”
The Baldwin County Association of REALTORS® MLS, located in Robertsdale, AL provides services to over 2,000 REALTORS® and affiliate members throughout the greater Baldwin County area and Alabama Gulf Coast region.

RPR Relocation Packet
RPR regularly highlights valuable use cases for REALTORS® across the county. In August, RPR shared details to create a compelling relocation package for your out-of-area clients. This spotlight focused on both the Neighborhood Report and Trade Area report. The Neighborhood Report summarizes local economics, quality of life metrics, housing stats, and additional information to assist clients in comparing one area to another. The Trade Area Report provides a greater sense of the community by providing comprehensive demographics, psychographics, market trends, and neighborhood statistics. Together these reports give your clients the background to better understand the backstory to any area. For more information on using RPR with your relocation clients, please read this article.
RPR’s August REALTOR® Spotlight focuses on seasoned REALTOR® Adrienne “Abe” Wagner from Donegal, PA. Abe’s professional philosophy is that you need to always be growing and learning, or it’s easy to fall behind. This desire to learn is exactly why Abe started using the RPR Platform. Today Abe uses the branded RPR reports with her clients regularly. She believes they not only help her impress clients, but also maximize the client’s sale price.
