Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
The Commercial Association of REALTORS® West Michigan (CAR) recently contracted with Catylist to power their online Commercial Multiple Listing Service (CMLS). Catylist, the leading technology provider for REALTOR associations nationwide, was chosen to replace the current listing platform for approximately 400 CAR members.
The new CAR CMLS service, scheduled to launch October 1, 2013 at http://www.carwm.com, will connect commercial professionals, owners, tenants and investors looking to buy, sell and lease commercial properties throughout Michigan. With the addition of CAR to the Catylist family, which already includes the Commercial Board of REALTORS Michigan, commercial professionals across the state will be able to share and market commercial properties more efficiently. Members of CAR also benefit from joining Catylist’s national collaborative, extending the reach of their marketing efforts through a nationwide network of associations and listing services. The data entered by members is owned and controlled by CAR.
According to Richard Maxson, Catylist’s SVP of Sales and Marketing, "The Catylist team is excited about the opportunity to serve the Commercial Alliance of REALTORS West Michigan. CAR supports one of the most cooperative commercial brokerage communities in the country and is committed to providing a first-class commercial MLS service that directly benefits its members and puts them in control of their valuable data. We are proud CAR chose Catylist for this purpose and will be joining dozens of other similar commercial REALTOR groups across the country benefiting from the Catylist Network.”
CAR members will receive a full-featured marketing system with the ability to simultaneously market properties on over 40 websites, promote their expertise, create high-end marketing presentations, communicate with local and national commercial professionals, and access a variety of integrated marketing tools on the member-only side of the website.
