MLSListings adds CoreLogic's Prospects CRM
MLSListings, which serves the Bay Area, Silicon Valley, and California coastal regions, has announced the integration of CoreLogic's Prospects CRM. This new feature will provide its 17,000 subscribers with a premium, fully-featured customer relationship management tool at no extra cost.
"Prospects CRM gives our members a powerful new tool that will help them manage clients in the most efficient and effective way possible," said Dave Wetzel, President and CEO of MLSListings.
Subscribers have highlighted the importance of a CRM in enhancing client follow-up and marketing efforts, but also called out challenges: lack of integration with multiple listing information and client insights, upsell charges and the need to adapt to a new CRM when switching firms.
Prospects CRM also offers integrations with other CoreLogic solutions, including Matrix and the MLS-Touch mobile app.
MIAMI offering Milestones Labs homeowner hubs
The Miami Association of Realtors (MIAMI) is partnering with Milestones Labs to provide MIAMI's 60,000 members free access to award-winning homeowner management technology.
Members will be able to offer clients self-branded online homeowner portals designed to alleviate the stress of homeownership. These hubs will consolidate various aspects of homeownership, such as home finances and recommended local service providers, positioning the Realtor as the go-to resource for all home-related queries.
"MIAMI Realtors sees three clear benefits to offering Milestones hubs, including support for people relocating to South Florida, secure cloud-based storage for all important documents that homeowners need access to in the event of a disaster, like a hurricane, and access to contractors who can help homeowners maintain their property," MIAMI Chief of MLS and Innovation Liz Sturrock said.
