Partnership expands broker access to MLS data throughout much of Colorado, improving information collaboration and customer satisfaction
LOVELAND, Colo. and COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Dec. 14, 2018 — Information and Real Estate Services, LLC (IRES), a Loveland-based multiple listing service (MLS) serving northern Colorado and Pikes Peak REALTOR Services Corp., (PPRSC), a Colorado Springs-based MLS serving southern Colorado, today announced a data-sharing collaboration that allows for brokers to more easily access listing data in either market.
“This partnership offers any of our participants throughout Colorado the benefit of being able to look broadly at listings in the northern and southern Colorado areas, two high-growth areas in real estate, through either the IRES or PPRSC portal,” Lauren Hansen, CEO of IRES, said. “Once a member enters a listing onto either the IRES or PPRSC MLS, it will be shared and populate to the other MLS, putting the listing in front of more agents and brokers instantly.”
The agreement also allows for brokers to attain commingled data feed on listings, where all data filters into one feed instead of delivering two separate lists, making it more convenient for buyers to evaluate properties in different geographies. Additionally, access to referral opportunities between REALTORS® is elevated with this partnership.
“PPRSC and IRES are MLSs that aren’t geographically adjacent but can provide a huge benefit to each other by working together,” Amy Reid, CEO of PPRSC, said. “Our collaboration significantly increases the amount of data our brokers will have at their fingertips and raises the bar in data delivery and broker satisfaction.”
Data sharing between PPRSC and IRES will be available by the end of the first quarter of 2019.
