  • RESAAS Signs On Royal LePage Kelowna To Its Real Estate Social Network 0 comments
    Feb 19, 2013 2:36 PM

    Real estate social network RESAAS Services (CNSX:RSS) has announced yet another service agreement as its platform becomes increasingly popular, this time adding Royal LePage Kelowna.

    The Kelowna-based real estate agency has five offices, located in Peachland, Westbank, Kelowna, Lake Country and Big White.

    Royal LePage Canada has around 14,000 real estate agents and realtors in over 600 locations across the country.

    Clearly, RESAAS Services' social network for real estate professionals, mortgage specialists, home buyers and sellers is becoming more popular. And it is easy to see why.

    The network is designed to enable real-time updating of property listings as well as the ability to sync with social media sites such as Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Twitter.

    Indeed, real-time updates are one aspect of what sets RESAAS part from sites such as the Canadian Real Estate Association's Multiple Listing Service (MLS) website, where it can take a number of days for new listings to appear.

    The news, which was announced late Friday, came just a week after it added California's Century 21 Adobe Realty, which itself was over a week after it added real estate agency OC Homes Realty from Southern California to its platform.

    RESASS has also inked service agreements with Century 21 In Town Realty in Downtown Vancouver and Southern Califnornia real estate firm Star Real Estate South County this year.

    The company also achieved a number of milestones in 2012, including a deal to work with The Residential Group Realty (TRG Realty) of Vancouver. TRG Realty, a real estate agency, started in April 2006, and has become one of the fastest growing companies in the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver.

    The company also welcomed Summit Realty Group to its platform last year, a full-service, commission brokerage specializing in residential real estate throughout the U.S.

    In one of its most notable achievements, RESAAS received approval to include its real estate Q&A app in Microsoft's Window's 8 App Store. The company's platform is also available for Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone and for Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android operating system for smartphones.

    Under the latest deal, all Royal LePage Kelowna agents will receive their own coporate branded agent pages, and the firm will have its own branded news page in order to broadcast information and remain in constant contact with the members of Royal LePage that are a part of RESAAS' social network.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
