The REALTOR® Association of the Fox Valley (RAFV) is a member-driven real estate trade association focusing on tools and programs that give their REALTORS® an advantage in the local marketplace. RAFV is over 1,500 members strong with offices throughout the Fox River Valley from Algonquin to Yorkville.
“The REALTOR® Association of the Fox Valley is the first local suburban Chicago real estate association to use RESAAS and offer it to our members,” said Heather Kellogg, Marketing and Communications Director at RAFV. “We are consistently looking for additional membership benefits for our association members and the use of the RESAAS Platform will do just this. The use of social media in real estate is one of the current hot topics in the industry, and we believe that RESAAS is an incredibly valuable network dedicated specifically to real estate professionals.”
When using RESAAS, each member of the REALTOR® Association of the Fox Valley will receive his or her own branded profile page, and will all be connected privately into an exclusive group on RESAAS to leverage the power of social networking. This will give all RAFV members an opportunity to create a large, dedicated referral network with other members on a focused, enterprise real estate social network. Further, the use of the RESAAS platform will allow for RAFV to interact directly with their members in a forward-thinking manner that is also available on-the-go.
“I first met Heather this year at the Illinois Association of REALTORS® Fall Conference & Expo,” said Danielle Sissons, VP of Communications at RESAAS. “It was clear to me that Heather could see how beneficial RESAAS would be for their RAFV members. RESAAS will enhance communication on an association-wide level and will empower their members by equipping them with the latest in marketing and business technologies.”
