RESAAS Services Inc., The Real Estate Social Network™, announced today the addition of 20 new Partners to the RESAAS Marketplace – a collection of leading real estate products and services offered to all RESAAS users to purchase at a discounted price.
RESAAS Marketplace launched in Summer 2014 to introduce RESAAS agents to products and services that can help enhance their business. RESAAS has continued to develop relationships with leading companies servicing real estate professionals who share similar goals and objectives to those of RESAAS; ultimately to help agents and brokers do more business.
“It’s been less than two months since we unveiled the Marketplace with our initial 10 go-to-market partners, including BombBomb, Dotloop and DocuSign®,” said Tom Rossiter, President at RESAAS. “The traction this generated, and the combined benefit to both agents and to vendors, has enabled us to form new partnerships with 20 additional real estate vendors in the first of a series of major enhancements to the service.”
Additional partnerships being made available in this release include award winning state-of-the-art website creation platform Squarespace, live virtual tour provider ReaLync, contact management and marketing software Propertybase (leveraging the Salesforce.com platform), branded agent app Dizzle, connecting riders to drivers app Uber, advanced research system providing reliable data ReboGateway (a product of Benutech Inc.), and REALTOR® contact relationship management system Wise Agent.
Uber, an on-demand service that is evolving the way the world moves, adds tremendous value to the Marketplace. Real estate agents are always on the go, and now RESAAS users are eligible for exclusive credits when riding Uber for the first time.
“By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers at the touch of a button, Uber takes you from point A to point B in 45+ countries and over 250 cities,” said Dan Nicolopoulos, Marketing Manager at Uber. “By participating in the RESAAS Marketplace, we look forward to many real estate agents riding with Uber whether it be to an open house or client meeting.”
Another partner participating in the Marketplace for this release is ReboGateway, a product of Benutech, Inc. “We see RESAAS as a potential difference making tool for agents to build awareness of their business, and learn from others within the network, and to help market their listed properties,” said Brian Fox, V.P. Business Development at Benutech, Inc. “ReboGateway is out in front of that initial listing process, by identifying the addresses that have a higher likelihood of selling. The combination of our targeted data along with RESAAS as a marketing platform, creates a synergy that will be exciting to watch develop. We are excited about being a Marketplace partner to bring new awareness to ReboGateway and to provide additional benefits to RESAAS members.”
CRM (Customer Relationship Management) built for REALTORS®, Wise Agent, is loaded with easy to use contact management, time management, transaction management, and document storage features. “RESAAS is quickly becoming known as the place to go for the best answers to real estate questions, from best practices, to tools and products to help grow agent’s businesses,” said Brandon Wise at Wise Agent. “Wise Agent is proud to be part of the RESAAS Marketplace.”
In this update to the Marketplace, RESAAS is also introducing a handful of companies that will offer free versions of their products in the Marketplace, including home maintenance at the touch of a button app HouseCall, online home refinancer Lenda, and simplified expense reporting system Expensify.
Savings on all products offered through the Marketplace are typically between 10% and 25%, and are redeemable instantly for all registered RESAAS users.
Contactually, the CRM provider that appeared in the RESAAS Marketplace on its initial launch, has enjoyed increased sales through the partnership. “The RESAAS Marketplace has been a great channel for acquiring new users,” said Brian Pesin, Senior Marketing Manager, Partnerships at Contactually. “Danielle and her team have been great and proactive about promoting us and our special RESAAS-focused events, such as webinars, to their users, which has in turn brought in a good number of new users. We look forward to strengthening our partnership as the Marketplace continues to expand and develop.”
