BPP Newsletter: April 2018
4 Reasons to Join the Broker Public Portal
Are you considering the BPP for your MLS? Here are 4 reasons why MLSs have joined:
1) To provide a better experience for your agents and consumers. The BPP offers agents and consumers a far better search and collaboration experience than the other large portals. With both using the same platform, it’s easy for them to communicate about their search, snap and favorite listings, and stay connected in one place.
2) To support free leads & less clutter. The BPP was conceived to serve the industry and offer brokers, agents and consumers an experience driven by Fair Display Guidelines – your listing, your lead – with no third-party ads, pop-ups or banners. Homesnap’s clean interface and sleek design enable users to search and browse listings without distraction. Brokers and agents have already received almost 1 million free leads from Homesnap!
3) To create synergy for future success. The BPP is an unprecedented effort that has brought MLSs, brokers, agents and consumers together using the same technology. The BPP is governed by your industry colleagues and is brought to you by the people who sell homes, not ads. Industry interests will always be put first.
4) To deliver trustworthy data, instantly. The BPP features real-time listing data straight from the MLS, so consumers trust what they see in Homesnap. Homesnap is also one of the most highly rated/reviewed real estate apps in the App Store and Google Play.
Brokers Support the BPP
Paul Wells, owner of RE/MAX of Barrington in Illinois, to the BPP: “Thank you!”
Wells says: “Since MRED joined the Broker Public Portal, Homesnap has been an excellent tool for both our agents and our customers.”
“The agents find the app incredibly easy to share with all their clients – both buyers and sellers – in literally seconds. They also enjoy all the information provided on every home through Homesnap Pro. Taxes, history, schools, maps, area information and even showing appointments are available at their fingertips at any time. This product makes all agents serve their clients at a higher level.”
Wells emphasized that “the customer feedback has also been very positive. Buyers and sellers alike find it simple, fast and fun to use. The look is sleek and new tools are being added regularly. They feel like they have the entire MLS in their hand. Customers enjoy having quick access to the information that they want and need.”
“Thank you Broker Public Portal, this Homesnap ROCKS!”
