Member News: MLS PIN to Offer The International MLS [IMLS] To Its Customers
Wednesday, July 13, 2016
BOCA RATON, Fla. — The International MLS [IMLS] announced that MLS PIN
will now offer its brokers and agents in the Boston metro market the option of international exposure and access through The IMLS.
“MLS PIN is the largest MLS in New England, one of the largest in the USA, and is headed by CEO Kathy Condon who is also the President of the Council of MLS. We are really excited about adding MLS PIN to join our growing list of Country Associations and MLS's agreeing to work with The IMLS on behalf of their brokers and agents," says The IMLS CEO/Founder and California broker Dr. Daniel Nussbaum. "We are delighted and really appreciate that the MLS PIN executive team has responded to requests from their brokers to have their listings sent to The IMLS and that they see 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.”
"We will now be able to bring more than 1,000,000 listings in more than 70 countries to their agents and brokers in the Boston metro area in a very affordable way, as a lead capture tool for agents to earn referral commissions on properties outside their own local markets," Nussbaum said. "Additionally, this will enable all of their own listings to be on agent and broker sites across the U.S. and around the world automatically, as well as on The IMLS.”
According to Nussbaum, The IMLS-MLS partner program epitomizes the entire approach taken by The IMLS, aimed at strengthening the MLS system in the U.S. along with providing global listing delivery for agents and brokers in a protected way. The IMLS requires U.S. agents to enter their listings into their local MLS first — with no ‘For Sale By Owner’ or pocket listings allowed — keeping the real estate market in the hands of true professionals.
"In addition to requiring U.S. listings to first be in the local MLS, there will be no advertising other agents on a personal member’s listing page, and only that listing agent member will receive the lead,” Nussbaum said.
"We are pleased to add The IMLS to our syndication offerings as a unique and exciting option for our Brokers who wish to market or search for listings Internationally," said Kathy Condon, CEO of MLS PIN.
