Enabled by Realtors Property Resource (RPR), data-sharing solution makes real estate listings available to members ahead of busy real estate season
LOVELAND, Colo. — (Jan. 20, 2020) — Information and Real Estate Services (IRES), a Loveland-based regional multiple listing service (MLS) that serves Boulder, Weld, Larimer, Logan and Morgan Counties and also holds partnerships with other regional MLSs to expand access across the state, today announced a data-sharing agreement between IRES and REcolorado utilizing RPR. A similar agreement with Pikes Peak REALTOR® Services Corp. (PPRSC) has been in place since December 2017.
“Increased collaboration is the future of real estate, and we are excited to work with other like-minded MLSs to offer a wide range of benefits to real estate professionals across the Centennial State,” said Lauren Hansen, CEO of IRES. “This partnership was designed to bring more value to brokers and consumers by creating a solution that empowers real estate professionals and facilitates seamless transactions.”
Facilitated by Realtors Property Resource (RPR), the partnership provides REALTORS® of all three MLSs with access to more listing data and a larger audience to help clients find and sell their dream homes.
“REcolorado is thrilled to be collaborating with our neighboring MLS organizations,” said Alan Smith, chairman of the board for REcolorado. “This is the first step toward giving Colorado brokers access to a broader set of listing data they can use to serve their clients.”
The three Colorado MLS organizations serve over 35,000 real estate brokers in Colorado. The agreement will give the organizations’ members access to active, pending, withdrawn, expired and closed listings. Beginning today, shared data will be available to the three MLS organizations’ members.
“As a REALTOR® association-owned MLS, we’re excited to provide our MLS listings to other REALTORS® in the state of Colorado via RPR View,” said Patrick Muldoon, president of Pikes Peak REALTOR® Services Corp. “We look forward to future endeavors with our neighboring MLSs.”
Created by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) for the sole purpose of providing REALTORS® with the data they need to meet the demands of clients, RPR provides comprehensive data, powerful analytics and client-friendly reports for each of NAR’s constituencies. RPR View is the most widely used MLS data share solution in the country. This platform allows MLSs to display listings to only their own customers or to larger audiences, such as all MLSs in the U.S. or a specific region.
