BOCA RATON, Fla. — The International MLS [IMLS] announced today that The IMLS partner program has been successfully introduced into Europe with the Hellenic Association of Realtors [HAR] becoming the first country association in Europe to partner with The IMLS to benefit of all of their agents and brokers.
“We are so pleased to partner with the Hellenic Association of Realtors,” said The IMLS CEO/Founder and California broker Dr. Daniel Nussbaum. “Our goal has been to bring the real estate world closer together by serving the best interest of agents, brokers, developers, MLS’s, associations, along with buyers and sellers all over the world.”
“We are delighted that the Hellenic Association of Realtors sees that The IMLS offers a complete global solution providing an international marketing presence that is easy and affordable, while providing their agents with additional opportunities to increase their income,” he said. “Greece is considered to be the cradle of Western civilization, responsible for the development of democracy, Western philosophy and the Olympic Games, so we are delighted to have them lead the way in Europe as our first country association to partner with us.”
The IMLS will now be able to bring more than 1,000,000 listings in 75 countries to Greek agents and brokers in a very affordable way as a lead capture tool for agents to earn referral commissions on properties outside their own local markets. Additionally, this will enable all of their agent listings to be on agent and broker sites across the USA and around the world, as well as on the TheIMLS.com global portal.
The IMLS has also recently announced that it offers real estate websites in 90 languages that combines the features of a local real estate site with its two coded IMLS lead capture deliveries already integrated to make life simple for agents in the USA and around the world so that any agent can fully participate in this global initiative.
“Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic with her Classical History and Cultural heritage has influenced and inspired the whole Western Civilization since the 8th century B.C.,” said the President of HAR Alexandra Sekouri. “With deep blue/turquoise sea, beautiful beaches, unspoiled nature, Beach & Mountain / Ski Resorts, having primarily Mediterranean clime with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters with 300 days of sunshine annually, is without doubt one of the most attractive places for investors and resort/second home buyers.”
The exclusive partnership between HAR and IMLS is very important for HAR and the Greek real estate market, due to the number of potential investors and the promotion opportunities it presents for HAR members as well as agents in Greece having the ability to network with colleagues internationally.
“It is also important to mention that HAR represents NAR, CEPI – CEI, MIAMI REALTORS® & ICREA, for which HAR is a founding member,” he said.
