RPR saves Brokers and agents time and money, while giving them tremendous single source access to dynamic property information.”

New products and initiatives specially designed for NAR member segments such as the Broker Tool Sets, RPR Commercial, and the RPR Data Share platform for MLSs have proven to be a great benefit as we have begun to introduce them to the members. We’ve worked hard to gain the confidence of the industry and it’s gratifying to see the response to RPR’s member benefit value proposition”
