MRIS recently announced that two of its shareholder associations signed with RealEstate Business Intelligence (RBI) to provideĀ SmartCharts Proā„¢ subscriptions (a $200 annual value) as part of their member benefits package.

Greater Capital Area Association of REALTORSĀ® (GCAAR) and Anne Arundel County Association of REALTORSĀ® (AACAR), with more than 11,000 members combined, are the first MRIS associations to sign with RBI. Per the agreements, the associations will include SmartCharts Proā„¢ subscriptions as a member benefit to allow real-time access to key hyper-local market statistics and relevant market trends and insights.

The business-to-business system connects real estate professionals with the local market-driving data that matters most to their customers when buying or selling a home. Once a region, county, zip code or subdivision is entered, a dashboard provides ready access to the market data in one click. SmartCharts Proā„¢ is derived from MLS transaction data and provides easy-to-understand charts and reports on any mobile, tablet, laptop or desktop screen.

ā€œWe constantly evaluate tools we make available to our members to make sure theyā€™re competitive in todayā€™s internet-driven marketplace,ā€ says Suzanne Des Marais of 10 Square Real Estate and GCAARā€™s current president. GCAAR covers both Montgomery County, Maryland as well as the District of Columbia (D.C.), two national bellwether markets. ā€œBy equipping all of our members with SmartCharts Proā„¢, we seek to provide members with the tools they need to expand their local market knowledge, provide even better value-added customer service to sellers and buyers and, as a result, grow their businesses.ā€

By providing SmartCharts Proā„¢ to their members, the associations will also address the National Association of REALTORSĀ® (NAR) newĀ Organizational Alignment Core Standards that require compliance byĀ June 30, 2015. To assist all of its shareholder associations with this standard, MRIS has made SmartCharts Proā„¢ available on a deeply discounted enterprise-wide license so it can be offered as a member benefit to association members in good standing.

ā€œThe purpose of these new standards is to raise the bar for REALTORĀ® associations and ensure high-quality service for real estate consumers,ā€ says Jon Coile, MRIS Chairman of the Board. ā€œThe hyper-local market statistics provided by SmartCharts Proā„¢ better enable real estate professionals to be regarded by homebuyers and sellers as the most trusted, local expert voice in real estate.ā€

ā€œWe hear from real estate professionals on a daily basis about the tremendous impact that SmartCharts Proā„¢ has on their ability to gain a quick and comprehensive understanding of their market farming areas,ā€ added John L. Heithaus, Chief Evangelist of RBI. ā€œSo, itā€™s not surprising that the new NAR Core Standards are now a driving force for associations to take a more proactive stance with the public on local market stats. Consumers are flooded with real estate information from a variety of both accurate and inaccurate sources. The goal here is to establish the ā€˜gold standardā€™ for local, recent and relevant market stats so that real estate professionals can help their clients make better decisions on one of lifeā€™s most stressful financial transactions.ā€
