RISMEDIA, December 23, 2009—Centralized Showing Service, Inc., a leader in real estate showing services, announced the acquisition of Showing Solutions, Inc. Both companies are based in Overland Park, KS, and schedule home showing appointments and collect showing feedback for Realtors® around the country.
The acquisition of Showing Solutions brings 12,000 agents into the CSS family, which now totals over 131,000 Realtors in over 60 markets nationwide. CSS will be providing service in six new markets: Topeka, KS; Lawrence, KS; Detroit, MI; Duluth, MN; Alexandria, MN; and Pueblo, CO.
Virtually everything in the process of scheduling showings will remain unchanged for Realtors who have been using Showing Solutions. The phone numbers, website (www.showingsolutions.com), and even the great customer service representatives that clients are used to, will be kept the same. Kevin Faherty, Vice President of CSS, states, “This acquisition will improve the efficiency at which our clients will be able to conduct their day-to-day business. The showing scheduling process for thousands of Realtors will become much easier.”
Eventually, Showing Solutions’ markets will be combined with those using CSS, increasing the efficiency and productivity of Realtors by having just one number to call to schedule most of their showing appointments. Former Showing Solutions owners Mike Gerding and David Schilling will continue to be involved during the transition process. “We definitely wanted to be active in helping facilitate the transition and feel this is a great thing for our clients. We know CSS will ensure our customers continue to receive the same great service they are accustomed to,” says Schilling.
