Data security and MLS integration run smoothly in non-disclosure western state

Brint Wahlberg
Missoula, Montana

Brint Wahlberg grew up in the business of real estate. His mother, Judy, began selling in 1978, and in 2000, Brint joined her on a full-time basis. Brint’s passion for his industry has led to him seeking out the most advanced and intuitive technology available to maximize the amount of information and services that he can provide to his clients.

The Challenge

The security of the RPR® site and the MLS data was a major concern in adopting the RPR platform for the Missoula Organization of REALTORS®. Like many western states, Montana is a non-disclosure state. This means that its public records do not disclose the sale prices of properties. Although RPR’s standard contract ensures data security, Brint explains that RPR worked one-on-one with his MLS on further defining their contract so everyone felt comfortable. “The folks at RPR were really receptive. They worked with us and it’s been excellent. We’ve had no problems in the last three years.”

The Outcome

Ultimately, RPR eased concerns over data security issues, and provided an invaluable tool for Brint and the Missoula REALTORS®.

RPR has now become Brint’s one-stop shop for all of his reporting needs. “I use RPR all the time. In fact, I stopped doing CMAs all together. I just do an RPR report,” he said. Brint loves RPR’s comp analysis feature, where he can both bring in his own sales data and adjust prices based on his own opinions. It allows him to set his own price ranges and personalize his reports.

He also appreciates the analytical and mathematical approach that RPR takes, giving him an edge with the data he presents. “When I’m competing with another REALTOR® and they’ve got a CMA and I’ve got an RPR Report, I’m head and shoulders above them every time,” says Brint.
