CHICAGO, IL (October 20, 2021) – RPR® (Realtors Property Resource®) is pleased to announce that it has enrolled ten thousand real estate companies in its Broker Tools program.
RPR Broker Tools are a set of features that offer broker/owners and managers an array of resources and benefits. Perhaps most visible of these is adding brand value by offering companies the ability to brand RPR reports created by a brokerage’s agents. Other unique tools available are Custom Pages, Affiliated Service Modules, the AVM Widget and Deep Links. And, it’s all available at no additional cost as RPR is included as part of NAR (National Association of REALTORS®) member benefits.
“The RPR Broker Tools program provides tremendous value to our agents, which in turn, provides value to our brokerage”, said Helen Hanna Casey, CEO of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services. “This includes business-building assets, such as Howard Hanna branded reports, which allow our agents to provide buyers and sellers with the most up to date and complete data to help them achieve their goals.”
RPR Broker Tools offers self service enrollment to all companies nationwide. Additionally, the Broker Services team delivers concierge level support to the top 300 brokerages in the nation by working one on one to build relationships and demonstrate value. Another important focus is partnering with franchise organizations by offering national branding, educational sessions, train-the-trainer programs as well as participating at conventions as speakers and vendors. All of these activities drive awareness and increased usage of RPR.
“To get 10,000 companies in the real estate business signed up for anything is a tremendous feat, but the real key is seeing these organizations take advantage of a tool that is provided as a NAR member benefit that adds value to the company and the REALTOR®”, said Ray Gronowski, RPR’s Vice President of Broker & Specialty Services.
