RISMEDIA, July 28, 2008-ProxioProTM, announced its partnership with the REALTOR® Association of Miami-Dade County. As a result of partnering with the real estate association, over 30,000 Miami-Dade County property listings will be loaded into ProxioPro, giving them exposure to other real estate professionals in agencies across 25 countries and creating new referral opportunities for the association’s 13,000 members.
According to the company, ProxioPro is one of the first online professional services to enable real estate agents to easily reach beyond their local markets to share listings and create trusted networks with agencies abroad. By combining an international Multiple Listing Service (MLS) with a rich set of professional networking functions, ProxioPro enables real estate agents to easily find, connect and partner with agents from other countries to globalize their practices and better serve their clients-a distinct competitive advantage.
“The Realtor Association of Miami-Dade County is excited about its partnership with Proxio. The ProxioPro network is opening doors for our members, enabling them to connect with a multitude of real estate professionals all over the world, resulting in increased opportunities for everyone,” said Martha Bullman, CEO of the Realtor Association of Miami-Dade County. “Today’s Realtor must be accomplished in international business, and having a product that promotes real estate on a global level helps the real estate professionals as well as the customers and clients they serve.”
In addition to exposing Florida listings to other real estate professionals worldwide, which ProxioPro does in 6 languages, Realtors also benefit from detailed agency and agent information, which provides visibility of location, specialties, designations, and languages spoken by the agents who register in the system, which is free to all professionals. This unique feature enables agents to seek and find other agents with specific skills to invite into their referral networks, especially helpful with international transactions.
“Most countries outside of North America lack MLS systems and U.S. MLSs don’t reach abroad, so there is no good means for sharing inventory and referring buyers. Therefore, buyers remain underserved, commissions are lost, and referral fees are foregone,” said Janet Case, CEO and founder of Proxio. “Proxio possesses the heritage and expertise to successfully deliver on the promise of its product offering, ProxioProTM, as the industry’s best answer to the call for increased international exposure and professional networking opportunities. We are thrilled that Miami-Dade Realtors will benefit from this new industry tool and the strong interest Europeans have in Florida.”
