What do login issues, mobile apps, and search inquiries have in common? They each rank among the top ten most common inquiries received by the Call Center at Realtors Property Resource® (RPR®).
RPR’s call center, housed in Omaha, Nebraska, fields phone calls, chats, and email requests from REALTORS® across the country. Abe Wagner, a veteran residential practitioner from Donegal, Pennsylvania, found the support team immensely valuable in helping her find answers to questions she had on RPR. “Generating the reports was really cool and very easy,” Abe said. “When I came across small stumbling blocks, I called the tech support group. And they were fantastic!”
Abe is among thousands of REALTORS® across the nation who rely on the 24/7 support provided by the Call Center’s world class customer service team, which now totals more than 20. The Call Center prides itself on being at the forefront of cutting edge technologies while also cultivating an accessible and user-friendly experience.
“It’s our mission to provide a ‘concierge’ level of support to all of our members,” said Troy Berry, manager of the Call Center. “We focus on every interaction with a single goal—to help our members grow their businesses.”
With that in mind, here are answers to some of the most frequent questions submitted to RPR’s Call Center. See if you’ve ever run into a similar challenge. If so, we’re here to help.
1. I want to be on RPR right now! Where do I find it and how do I create my account?
Editor’s Note: Our favorite question 🙂
You can find RPR at www.narrpr.com. From the homepage, click “Create a new account” and a sign-up wizard will walk you through the steps.
To make the process as smooth as possible, make sure you have your NRDS ID handy (as only REALTORS have access to RPR). You can find your NRDS number here: https://reg.realtor.org/roreg.nsf/retrieveID
Also, make sure you know your Agent ID from your MLS as well. This will ensure you gain access to your MLS listing data, if they’ve partnered with RPR.

2. I need RPR on-the-go. Do you have a mobile app and where can I find it?
Editor’s Note: You’re in luck!
RPR Mobile™ is a fantastic mobile app that you can download to your iOS or Android phone. Simply search for “RPR Mobile™” in the Apple or Google play store to start your download journey. You’ll use the same login and password as you do for the website, and if you haven’t created an account you can do it directly from the app as well.
Just a head’s up: RPR Mobile is coming to your iPad and Android tablet this August, so be sure to look for that announcement.
3. I’m all set up in RPR, but I need to change my picture, update my agent ID, add my phone number and other stuff.
Editor’s Note: Sounds like your profile is out of date.
Click on the gear icon on the upper right of any page on RPR and you’ll be directed to your profile page. This information is important to enter and keep updated, as it’s what’s reflected on all RPR reports you generate.

4. How do I start searching in RPR and then filter down to the areas I need?

RPR has a lot to offer REALTORS®, and we love to help you navigate your way through the site. This is just a sampling of the types of questions our call center, support site, video learning, and webinars can help users with.
In response to a growing number of call center inquiries as well as RPR’s rising popularity among the 1.1 million REALTORS, we are thrilled to announce that starting this month we’ll be moving the RPR Call Center in-house, paving the way for the best and most knowledgeable support we’ve ever offered. It’s fully customized live support however you need it, whenever you need it.
The Call Center team is skilled enough to handle data issues and explain their complexities, but patient enough to log you in when you’ve forgotten your password. They’re the experts, so you don’t have to be.
And because being a Realtor isn’t always a 9-5 job, they’ll be here for you 24/7, every day of the year.
As RPR continues to grow and expand onto mobile platforms, our goal is to create and maintain the best customer support team in the industry…and we think we’re well on our way.
But don’t take it from us, listen to Abe.
