RISMEDIA, March 24, 2011—Online real estate marketing solutions provider Point2 recently announced a marketing agreement with Proxio, the international Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and global referral network. According to the company, the partnership effectively expands market reach for both Point2 and Proxio, and creates new marketing and revenue channels for the real estate professionals who are clients of both organizations. Full system integration to support the two way marketing arrangement is planned for release within the next 90 days.
Under the agreement, the company reports that Point2 Agent platform users will gain access to Proxio’s subscription-based Global Referral Network™ in over 100 countries, enabling them to market in areas typically beyond their reach.

Proxio users around the world will be able to tap Point2’s listing syndication network of over 60 third party real estate consumer websites, search engines, and auction and classified advertising sites in North America. This allows them easy access to one of the largest markets worldwide and enables them to generate leads at no added cost.
