VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - May 22, 2014) - RESAAS Services Inc. (CSE:RSS), The Real Estate Social Network™, is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with the Council of Residential Specialists (CRS), the largest affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS®. The Council awards its CRS designation to experienced REALTORS® who have completed advanced professional training and demonstrated outstanding professional achievement in residential real estate.
The Council of Residential Specialists is a professional network of more than 30,000 residential real estate professionals (3% of REALTORS® hold the elite CRS designation) within the U.S and overseas. CRS members are committed to achieving success in helping their clients and customers complete a home sale or purchase. The Council of Residential Specialists provides agents with the tools, resources and strategies they need to help them guide buyers and sellers through the residential sales process.
"RESAAS can be a great benefit for a REALTOR® wanting to connect with both CRS Designees and other real estate agents on a global basis," said Anthony Priore, Vice President of Marketing & Communications at the Council of Residential Specialists. "The delivery of a platform like RESAAS will unite our growing network and advances communication among our Designees. We are excited to offer this to our members."
Under the terms of the arrangement, all CRS members will be offered access to an exclusive CRS group delivered on the RESAAS platform. This allows CRS members to take advantage of improved internal communications and increased knowledge sharing, as well as benefitting from the public-facing social marketing benefits every RESAAS user enjoys. Further, CRS members will have the ability to make connections with not only the entire CRS membership but also the existing network of real estate professionals active on RESAAS today.
"RESAAS has worked with the CRS Product Review Committee since last year," said Danielle Sissons, VP of Communications at RESAAS. "We received some incredible feedback, giving us both great insight from a service standpoint, as well as an opportunity for a wider provision of RESAAS to all CRS members."
A Certified Residential Specialist gains access to a variety of benefits -- benefits that help REALTORS® earn more income, stay ahead of competition, manage risk, discover industry best practices, get listings and locate buyers nationwide. The introduction of the RESAAS platform made available to all CRS Designees will enhance the overall membership benefits and allow Council staff to communicate with their members through the use of an exclusive group hosted on a social networking platform specifically for real estate.
