At RPR (Realtors Property Resource), our number one priority is your success. We strive for you to be more productive, more efficient and better equipped to solve all types of real estate business problems. And we love helping new agents get their feet wet!
Here’s a note we recently received from Shikha Mehra, a new RPR user and active member of our Facebook Connect group. It’s feedback such as this that lets us know just how helpful RPR can be for new agents...
For me RPR has become a one-stop-shop! RPR equips you with everything: from building your SOI (sphere of influence) to then farming that area. From creating Market Activity Reports to executing sellers disclosures. I can even create and execute contracts thanks to the connection with my zipForms.
It sounds cliche when you hear a website mention that they provide tools and resources for every situation. But RPR literally does it! Thank you.

Thanks, Shikha! And of course, we had to hear more. Here’s a Q&A with a new user who discovered RPR within the past year...
How long have you been a REALTOR® and what area do you specialize in?
I got into residential real estate just over one year ago, during the pandemic. I pivoted from my own catering business, and before that I was a Regional loan officer. I was always interested in real estate and being my own boss. Plus, I’m a people person! I can communicate with a total stranger at a comfortable level.
How were you first introduced to RPR?
I first heard of RPR through Coldwell Banker. It sounded interesting, but I didn’t know all about it. Then I found the RPR Facebook Connect Group. That made me want to learn more about it and explore it. I clicked on it and noticed so much information and exposure. It was easy to use and not overwhelming. The way the group welcomes new agents is awesome. The guidance, the knowledge, there’s no end!
What’s one of your favorite features of RPR?
I love using the RPR app, it makes it so easy to deal with clients right on the spot. I don’t have to wait to respond to clients, I just do it—boom! One-stop-shop!
You mentioned RPR being a “one-stop-shop”, which we really appreciate. Can you elaborate on that?
From the beginning to end of the transaction, I use RPR the entire time. All the reports, market trends, graphs, charts, distressed property info, home values, CMAs right on the spot, the list goes on and on. From one end to the other, it encompasses everything in a real estate transaction to get the job done right.
Wow, great answer! Which reports are your go-to’s?
The Market Activity Report for sure. The beautiful part is RPR also created a window for us to fill in little blanks for a personal note to our clients. It adds a little spunk to it! I love that, my clients go “Wow!” And it’s easy to learn, even a newbie can figure it out. RPR helps you broaden your horizons and to embrace new info, existing info, and tech. You put it all together and make it functional for your client.
What are some pain points for new agents like yourself? Anything that RPR helps or alleviates?
Your first CMA is kind of tough when you start out. But I got feedback and guidance from the Facebook Connect group and there are so many videos in the Learning Center. I dedicated myself to watching those. I created my first CMA with help from RPR and I was so freaking psyched!
