RPR Announces 500,000 REALTORS® Milestone
MLSs Continue To See High Value in the RPR Application
Submitted by: RE Technology
Last week we reached another key milestone; partnering with 274 MLSs representing over 500,000 REALTOR® members. We're seeing a growing desire for markets to implement RPR, now that the application is live. Since January 1, 2011, RPR has executed contracts with MLSs representing more than 180,000 REALTOR® members. In March both MRIS representing over 46,000 members and CRMLS representing over 32,000 members, executed an RPR contracts, bringing RPR's coverage of the nation's largest MLSs into greater focus.
More recently, MLS partners include TREND MLS representing over 32,000 members, REALTOR® Association of Greater Fort Lauderdale representing 7,300 members and Empire Access MLS representing 6,200 members, marking the total number of REALTORS® represented by RPR contracts at 504,395 as of 5/6/11.
"Since the launch of the RPR last fall, MLSs have continued to see high value in the RPR application for their members," says Dale Ross, CEO of RPR. "The offer of robust data sets, analytics and reports all available through a nationwide property database—at no charge to the members—is essential to our member's success given today's economic challenges. RPR saves brokers and agents time and money, while giving them tremendous single-source access to dynamic property information."
RPR President Marty Frame said, "It's gratifying to see that MLSs representing over half of the country's REALTORS® have voted to deliver the RPR to their members. New products and initiatives specially designed for NAR member segments, such as the Broker Tool Sets, RPR Commercial, and the RPR Data Share platform for MLSs, have proven to be a great benefit as we have begun to introduce them to members. We've worked hard to gain the confidence of the industry and it's gratifying to see the response to RPR's member benefit value proposition."
