Among the largest and most used MLS systems in the US, CRMLS has brought aboard RateMyAgent as its newest offered product for its Marketplace. CRMLS' Marketplace is special in that it offers state-of-the-art real estate products to its users at affordable rates which can be negotiated by the group.
As for the new product, RateMyAgent, based out of Australia, is a real estate reviews platform which is now available in the US through CRMLS Marketplace. RateMyAgent streamlines the process of selecting an agent by collecting and sharing verified reviews across social media and other online passageways. What sets it apart from the rest is that RateMyAgent reviews are linked to a verified transaction and sourced to specific customers, meaning they aren't for public use.
"When we saw how RateMyAgent can uplift great agents, we knew we had to bring them into our Marketplace," said CRMLS CEO Art Carter. "RateMyAgent can help agents promote their businesses and help consumers find the best agent for their needs."
This partnership with CRMLS is a great move for RateMyAgent as it looks to enter the American market. With agreements in place with CRMLS and other MLSs, plus inclusion in the National Association of REALTORS®' REach Accelerator Program, RateMyAgent is swiftly expanding into key American real estate markets.
"Agents know the value of reviews to their marketing; what we're enabling is maximum leverage with minimum effort," said Mark Armstrong, CEO and Founder of RateMyAgent. "That means putting reviews across all the platforms and websites agents have access to, with a few swipes and taps on their mobile devices. We're beyond excited to bring the power of our platform to the real estate professionals of CRMLS."
CRMLS prides itself in its real estate products offered through its Marketplace, and the agreement with RateMyAgent only adds to the uniqueness of what CRMLS already offers. The features will be available at no additional cost to professional users already working with CRMLS. The features include a profile page for each agent, widgets to feed reviews to personal websites, and tools to create digital ads.
