RISMEDIA, November 3, 2009—Move Advocate and AnnounceMyMove LLC., a privately held company, announced an affiliate partnership to provide complimentary move management services from Move Advocate to AnnounceMyMove members and their clients.
According to the company, the Move Advocate program provides home sellers special benefits and discounts when moving their household goods long distance.
Through the agreement, real estate agents will be able to refer their clients to the Move Advocate when they create a listing announcement through AnnounceMyMove.

“Our goal is to support our members and deliver tools that add value to the transaction and help their buyers and sellers save money,” said Janelle Odishoo, Co-Founder of AnnounceMyMove.com. “The Move Advocate program is exactly the kind of cost saving service that families need, especially right now, and a great service that agents should be offering their clients. We are pleased to introduce our members to this program.”
The referral process is simple and seamless for AnnounceMyMove members. Once a new announcement is completed, agents will have the option to refer clients to the Move Advocate for discounts and special services for transporting their household goods.
“The ease of use and expanded service offering really helps me differentiate my listing presentations,” said Tammy Robinson of Realty Unlimited®. “With the simple click of a button I’m able to promote a client’s home through my social media network, my client’s social network, and provide complimentary move management services. It’s a low cost way I can provide high value to my clients.”
According to the 2009 Home Buyer/Seller StudySM by J.D. Power and Associates, the satisfaction of home sellers is increasingly driven by the additional services offered by their real estate company.
