Los Angeles CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2015
The International MLS [IMLS] announced today that Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach in the Philadelphia metro area has become its largest broker member to date.
According to The IMLS CEO/Founder and California broker Dr. Daniel Nussbaum, "We are proud to say that we have now added the largest Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices company as a global broker member. Having raised my children in the Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania and New Jersey Shore areas, it’s a coming home for me and we are delighted to get such a substantial leader in the USA brokerage community with more than 4000 agents to participate in The IMLS.
All of their agent’s listings will be on The IMLS and all IMLS searches distributed globally and they will now have The IMLS international page with all of The IMLS listings available to their customers in 80-languages. Additionally, all of their agents are also able to have our framed international web page with their own IMLS search with more than 1,000,000 listings in 60 countries and 80 languages for their own website.
Our goal has been to bring together agents, brokers, developers, associations, MLS’s, buyers and sellers to create the best industry and consumer experience. We offer a complete global solution providing an international marketing presence that is easy and affordable, while providing agents an opportunity to increase their revenue, and Berkshire Hathaway Fox & Roach can see the strategic competitive advantage of becoming an IMLS member and what it can provide for all of their agents and clients.”
The International MLS prides itself on having been created by brokers, for brokers, and all of their agents. The IMLS enables real estate agents from around the world to market their properties globally through the IMLS website and to have their listings on agent and broker sites all around the world. The IMLS empowers agents to display international properties with their own IMLS searches as a lead capture tool, increasing referral commissions from clients outside their local market.
“What we have created for agents and brokers is an affordable platform that satisfies their growing concerns about the direction of the real estate industry, while providing global visibility for their listings. We believe that we have made core ethical promises that resonate with the agents and brokers that we have posted on our website. Our 10 point pledge includes to never advertise other agents on a personal member’s listing page, and if a consumer is interested in a property, only that listing agent will receive the lead. We also wanted to create a platform where no ‘For Sale By Owner’ listings are accepted, putting the real estate market back in the hands of true professionals,” said Dr. Nussbaum.
“We are looking forward to having the ability for our agents to more effectively market their listings internationally,” remarks BHHS Fox & Roach President Joan Docktor, “and to give consumers in the Philadelphia area access to listings from around the world.”
