LOS ANGELES, Jan. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Founder Christopher Dyson along with Founding Partners James Harris (Bravo's Million Dollar Listing), David Parnes (Bravo's Million Dollar Listing), and Mauricio Umansky (Founder and CEO, The Agency), are pleased to announce the official launch of ThePLS.com - The Property Listing Service - Where Real Estate Happens First™.
ThePLS.com is a 'first of its kind' online property listing service designed to connect buyers, sellers, and agents in a whole new way. The platform has both a private 'agents only' side as well as a public facing side, with novel tools for searching both supply and demand. For both agents and the public, The PLS offers advantages and opportunities that do not exist anywhere else.
PLS 'Exclusive' properties list on ThePLS.com 24 to 72 hours prior to appearing on any other platform, including Zillow and others. A property posted on a Friday will be exclusive until Monday at midnight. During that period, buyers will enjoy first access to properties that have not yet become available anywhere else online—a huge advantage in competitive markets.
"The market is so competitive, hours can literally make the difference," said founder Christopher Dyson. "Savvy buyers are able to set up alerts on ThePLS.com to get notified the minute a property becomes available, before it appears anywhere else. And, if you are a seller, The PLS is a true game-changer. With the click of a button you can see exactly which agents have qualified buyers for your home."
PLS buyer 'Wants' allow sellers to search for which agent has the best-matched buyer for their home. Especially now with the lack of inventory on the market, this gives agents a new way to source the perfect house for their buyer. Sellers simply enter their address and criteria and a proprietary matching algorithm finds the most qualified buyers. This technology is a PLS 'first' and is only available on the platform.
Property and buyer 'Want' listing information is protected on the PLS. No other agent can advertise against another agent's listing—a key distinction between The PLS and other real estate platforms. Members of the public always connect directly with a PLS listing agent, avoiding confusion with agents who are simply paying for placement.
The PLS allows users to automate the real estate search process. By setting up a 'saved search,' there's no need to check the site on a daily basis. Properties or 'Wants' that match specified search criteria get emailed or sent by SMS the minute they are listed. Saved search automation is available to both agents and the public.
"Whether you are a buyer or seller, ThePLS.com has to be the first place you look and you can automate the entire process by setting up alerts." - James Harris, Bravo's Million Dollar Listing
"Sellers have never been able to search for qualified buyers before. We are super excited to launch that functionality!" - David Parnes, Bravo's Million Dollar Listing
"For years, Agents have been waiting for a tool that gives them back control of their inventory and lead generation. ThePLS.com is that platform." - Mauricio Umansky, Founder and CEO, The Agency
In an industry dominated by 3rd party listing sites that leverage agents' information for their own gain and profit, the PLS aims to accomplish two things: to give power back to the agent community by allowing agents to control what happens with their inventory and to offer the public new and exciting ways to buy and sell their homes.
