MyRPR REALTOR® Story
Our latest MyRPR use case comes from Southland Regional Association of REALTORS® (SRAR). Founded in 1920, SRAR has grown to over 9,000 members and is one of the largest local REALTOR® Associations in the country.
SRAR takes pride in being on the cutting-edge of technology, policy and advocacy for the benefit of their members. In 2014, the primary goal for SRAR’s Board of Directors has been to create a network of members, in different real estate offices that have access to information on political, demographic, and community information. Watch the video below to see how they used the Local Economic Area reports available in the RPR Dashboard to help achieve their goal.
