Dear Industry Colleagues:
We are all facing a truly unprecedented situation. The global COVID-19 pandemic is affecting our homes and families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life. During this time, I wanted to reach out and update you on how the Broker Public Portal with Homesnap is specifically addressing the needs of brokers and agents around the country.
First and foremost, our hearts go out to anyone who’s been impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly. We’re focused on the health and safety of our staff, colleagues and members. And we’re truly inspired by the selfless healthcare workers around the country who are on the front lines working tirelessly to care for people in need.
Second, the BPP is working closely with the industry, to ensure that MLSs, brokerages, and agents have the tools they need to weather this storm. We published the electronic Agent Guide to Homesnap During COVID-19 to highlight key features of Homesnap that help keep real estate business going while social distancing measures are in place, such as Virtual Open Houses and Homesnap Stories.
Third, the BPP with Homesnap remains laser-focused on the success of MLSs and brokerages. We continue to enhance our product to better serve our partners and their communities. This moment reminds us that we’re all connected like never before, and being of service to one another is crucial in this moment.
As we move forward, the BPP stands committed to serving the industry through this pandemic, and we always value your questions, ideas and feedback. I invite you to read the Guidebook for Agents to learn more about Homesnap’s offering and partnership opportunities. Please contact our team at BPP@Homesnap.com anytime with questions or feedback. Stay safe!
Greater McAllen Association of REALTORS® Joins the BPP
MLSs and brokerages are rallying around the BPP now more than ever. The most recent to join and launch Homesnap is Greater McAllen Association of REALTORS® (GMAR), expanding Homesnap’s footprint in the Lone Star State to 10 MLSs.
Leigh Patterson, MLS & Member Services Director at GMAR, said “We absolutely love the app and the heatmap feature is top notch. Adding clients is a breeze and the setup was seamless on the mobile app and the integration was so easy!”
If your MLS is not participating in the BPP, we’d love to have your support. Check out this new video about the BPP and why so many MLSs have gotten behind it.
