MLS Express is a dynamic forum for both young and veteran Realtors alike. This unique platform provides a venue for marketing properties to your Realtor colleagues, an excellent networking opportunity for Realtors and Business Partners and a continual stream of relevant training and educational opportunities. While we highlight these three cornerstones of MLS Express, there are also numerous other tangible and intangible benefits from participating in this unique program.
Marketing Properties. We often underestimate the importance of marketing our property listings to our fellow Realtors. We do this despite statistics that show that a vast majority of properties that are sold are not sold by the listing agent. MLS Express is a fantastic venue for showcasing properties including an opportunity to highlight the best features of your listings to other Realtors and invite them to visit and tour your home at a convenient time. MLS Express and broker tours may prove to be an essential tool for marketing and selling your listings not to mention the benefit of being able to learn about and tour multiple homes in a condensed setting. Don’t miss the benefits of including this tool in your next listing appointment.
Realtor and Business Partner Networking. MLS Express also provides the perfect venue for networking with fellow Realtors and Business Partners. There are obvious benefits such as meeting some of the most proactive and productive agents, learning about new properties on the market, and knowing about special circumstances and property opportunities that just cannot be properly communicated via the MLXchange system. There are also many not so obvious benefits. One is the opportunity to meet many of our Business Partner members. These are the people you need to know to get things done whether it is title and mortgage services, home concierge services, staging services, painting and property maintenance vendors or property inspectors, etc. What better place to find this group of proven vendors who have worked with many of your colleagues? The Realtor Association of Sarasota and Manatee also uses this venue to talk about many of its programs and opportunities. Individual Realtors have the opportunity to announce specific wants and needs of their individual clients. When it comes down to it we all know the importance of networking in the real estate business. The MLS Express platform is an outstanding opportunity for new and veteran Realtors alike to add value to their business and maybe even their social network.
Training and Education. MLS Express is also an opportunity to learn both directly and indirectly. The Realtor Association of Sarasota and Manatee has used this forum to present information on many timely topics affecting today’s market. These topics, programs and initiatives are presented and discussed in an open forum where individual Realtors can participate and add value. Indirectly, Realtors will always leave with new ideas regarding marketing and ideas for their business.
