Chesapeake, VA — Hampton Roads REALTORS® Association (HRRA) and Realtors Property Resource (RPR) are pleased to announce that they will be offering integrated MLS data to HRRA members in the RPR Application. Real Estate Information Network, Inc. (REIN MLS), the multiple listing service for the Hampton Roads area executed RPR’s Data Content License Agreement, which will allow HRRA to begin offering all its REALTOR® members the full features and functionality of RPR’s member benefit application.
“RPR’s core mission is to provide a one stop application that works in cooperation with local and regional MLS systems, assisting REALTORS® with greater access to property information than today’s technology empowered consumers. RPR’s high value reports are designed for REALTORS® to assist their clients and customers in making the most informed decisions about buying and selling property,” says RPR CEO Dale Ross. “RPR is very pleased to have HRRA’s partnership and appreciates their support of RPR’s value to their members. We would like to thank HRRA’s 2013 Chair Pat Steele and REIN’s President Dorcas Helfant-Browning and directors for their leadership and support.”
RPR has been available to all REALTORS® since November 2012. While RPR offers a number of beneficial features as an NAR member benefit, the highest value to agents and brokers occurs when localized MLS data is licensed for RPR’s search, mapping, trending, graphs, and menu of valuable reports, such as Comps Analysis and Market Reports.
“HRRA is excited about this new agreement between REIN and the Realtors Property Resource (RPR), allowing REIN listing data to be built into the RPR system for REIN’s REALTOR® subscriber members,” says Patricia A. Steele, CRS, GRI, SRES, Chairman of HRRA. “Having access to RPR’s extensive demographic databases, combined with REINMLS’ local listings will increase HRRA’s members’ values with their clients and give consumers another reason to work with a REALTOR® when making this important lifestyle decision” Steele says.
RPR is currently working with REIN to map and build the data into the RPR system. Watch for launch details coming soon.
