We are pleased to announce that the California Regional Multiple Listings Service (CRMLS)—one of the largest MLS’s in the country—have executed an agreement to bring RPR’s national property database to their more than 32,000 REALTOR® members. With this addition, RPR will be the go-to resource for almost 400,000 REALTOR® members across the country.
Member Outreach and Training
On March 8, 2011, RPR joined with 3,000 REALTORS® from the Denver, Colorado area at their annual REALTOR® Rally. The energy and enthusiasm from the REALTOR® members at the event was truly infectious and we were inspired by the passion that they have for their business. At RPR’s booth, literally hundreds of agents and brokers told us how excited they were about RPR. We heard things like “RPR is the greatest thing NAR and MetroList have ever done” or “I don’t know much about RPR, but I’ve been told I have to find out more!” The Rally included a wealth of educational opportunities for REALTORS®, with the RPR presentation drawing a standing-room crowd –the largest audience of any presentation, with more than 140 members attending.
RPR is very much in tune with the needs and concerns of its REALTOR® members. That’s why we offer live training via The Web every day of the week. RPR subscribers can log into our site, select the classes they need, and tune in when it’s most convenient for them. If you would like to find out more, visit our training registration page.
From March 18-22, I will be attending the Association Executives Institute in Dallas. The RPR Industry Relations team will be at the RPR booth, so if you are an Association Executive, feel free to stop by and get the current status on MLS-contracting for your association members. I will be speaking at the AE Forum to present an update on RPR’s progress and apprise them of products that RPR is developing for Brokers, Associations, MLS’s, appraisers and RPR’s Commercial Applications.
As RPR continues to make progress on new MLS Market contracts, our Launch team works with local MLSs on data mapping, training and communication processes in advance of system launch to REALTORS around the country. This week, we are proud to announce the following MLS launches to over 20,000 REALTORS:
- Bay East Association of REALTORS (CA) – 5000 members
- Contra Costa Association Of REALTORS (CA) – 4000 members
- Regional MLS (FL) – 11500 members
Welcome to RPR!
RPR is working in conjunction with NAR on a Broker Price Opinion (BPO) certification program, which we anticipate will be available during the second quarter of this year. The program will support our REALTOR® members in gaining BPO orders and help them to create or deepen relationships with service providers.
As always, thank you for your continued support of RPR and its efforts. Our team believes strongly in what it’s doing and we love the positive feedback we’re receiving.
