RISMEDIA, August 27, 2008-Keller Williams Realty, Inc., and Threewide Corporation have entered into an agreement that will bring value to Keller Williams Realty offices across the country. ListHub, a premier listing asset management network, will integrate seamlessly with Keller Williams Listing System (KWLS). According to the two companies, the integration with the ListHub network will provide Keller Williams agents with a single-point of entry for their listing data – one entry into their MLS and all their listing details will also be pushed to the KWLS for posting on more than 125+ home search sites on the Internet.
Two years ago, Keller Williams Realty launched the KWLS as a centralized msn.listing database that gives Keller Williams agents control over online marketing of their listings. The KWLS powers distribution of Keller Williams agents’ listings to national consumer websites, as well as Keller Williams office sites, agent sites and KW.com, the company’s national site. The integration of the ListHub network with KWLS means that Keller Williams agents and brokers with ListHub – enabled MLS markets no longer need to enter their listings into both the MLS and the KWLS. Now, ListHub can automatically access the most up-to-date listing information in the local MLS database and populate the KWLS.
“We are thrilled to partner with Threewide because of their extensive experience with real estate data integration and the breadth of their network,” said Cary Sylvester, executive director of Keller Williams Realty International. “The integration of ListHub with KWLS is an important step in bringing our offices and agents even closer to having total control of where and how their listings are displayed on the Web.”
The company says ListHub’s network includes more than 100 MLS databases nationwide, including most of the larger MLS organizations and those in major metropolitan areas. These connections provide the ideal technical framework for accessing and repurposing the listing information in real time for use in broad Internet marketing.
“We are honored to add the Keller Williams Realty family to our growing national network,” said Luke Glass, president of Threewide Corporation. “We are looking forward to providing a needed service to Keller Williams offices by supplying MLS data to the KWLS. We have an exciting opportunity to bring immediate measurable value to every participating Keller Williams office through our new relationship.”
