Realtors Property Resource, LLC® (RPR) has executed an agreement with Kansas Association of REALTORS® subsidiary Real Estate Business Resources (REBR), to provide third party training support for the Upstream Project. REBR staff will be utilized to complement RPR’s existing national training network to provide web-based, end-user training on the Upstream system, as the project transitions to its Beta testing phase in 2017.

“We are excited and proud to be an integral part of the Upstream Project,” said REBR Chairman Brian Jones. “We look forward to supporting agents and brokerages in using this game changing technology.”

In order to learn how to best support users and staff at the brokerage, MLS and Association level, RPR staff conducted a series of in-market “Discovery” meetings over Q4 2016. Each meeting focused on training features and programs through interaction with staff at each organizational level, and observation of current listing input processes and how they are supported by staff.

“Our goal has always been to minimize the impact Upstream has on our stakeholders,” said UpstreamRE, LLC™ CEO Alex Lange. “Having a dependable and client-centric support and training team is imperative to our success, and our partnership with RPR and REBR creates that winning combination.”
