The International MLS [IMLS]® Adds Jim Harrison As The Director Of Industry Relations
Long Time MLS Executive And Former MLS Listings CEO To Advise on Building Relationships And Memberships With USA MLS’s
Boca Raton, Aug 27, 2020 --(issuewire.com)-- The International MLS [IMLS]® announced today that Jim Harrison has joined The IMLS as the Director Of Industry Relations and has been added to its Advisory Board to act as a liaison to USA MLSs and to help facilitate MLS Memberships into The International MLS [IMLS]®.
According to The IMLS CEO/Founder and California broker Dr. Daniel Nussbaum, "We are extremely proud to say that we have added Jim Harrison to our Advisory Board and as the Director Of Industry Relations. Jim is a long time MLS executive, as well as being the former CEO of MLS Listings in the Silicon Valley. He has an extensive background of experience highlighted by significant accomplishments and we welcome his knowledge, expertise, and vast real estate network. We are delighted to add Jim and his 36 years of experience and fostering collaborative efforts in the MLS arena.”
“The IMLS now has its MLS Member’s Benefit initiative underway and has grown its membership base from around 15,000 last year to nearly 175,000 now. The IMLS-MLS Member Benefits initiative provides complimentary IMLS participation for the MLS as well as for all of their members to have their listings on The International MLS [IMLS]® as well as advertised on thousands of other agents and brokers sites around the world. They will also be listed in our Agent Directory, have full access to their own secure area in The IMLS Agent platform and be able to network internationally while providing their listings with international exposure,” said Dr Nussbaum.
With the recent announcements of The IMLS signing the Stellar MLS, the MIAMI Association of REALTORS®, FMLS in Atlanta, AMPI, the association for Mexico real estate professionals, and the Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association, The IMLS is proving its expanding global reach and is experiencing exponential growth in membership participation.
With the IMLS Member Benefits plan, MLS participants will now be able to take advantage of IMLS special product options and opportunities to build their businesses locally and globally. This includes The IMLS international web page with IMLS/IDX search and Google Translate, which provides an automated global property sharing of listings between agents all over the world. Their customers can view all IMLS listings around the world in more than 100 languages with their web visitors staying on that agent’s own URL and with the agent getting the buyer leads to make referrals to other agents as they choose. The IMLS makes it very easy for agents to network with each other anywhere in the world as well as share listings.
The IMLS global technology platform addresses the growing concerns about the direction of the real estate industry by making certain core ethical promises. The IMLS never advertises other agents on a personal member’s listing page, and if a consumer is interested in a property, only that listing agent will receive the lead. The IMLS initiative is about putting the real estate market back in the hands of agents and brokers.
“What I really like about IMLS is that it is a fully baked solution at the right time for helping Realtors® promote their listings while maintaining their own leads from their listings,” said Jim Harrison.
