As of Nov. 1, 2012, Realtors Property Resource® is available to all REALTORS® across the country. Here are four easy ways for REALTOR® associations to promote the news to members and inform them about all the benefits RPR® provides.
1. Post RPR® Graphics on Your Site
Give members easy access to the latest information from RPR® by embedding RPR® badges on your association website or blog. The badges are available in several sizes and link back to the RPR® website.
At the RPR® site, choose from the dropdown menu badges for:
- the national launch of RPR® to all members
- RPR® online training resources
- RPR® information for commercial practitioners
2. Email Your Members
RPR® has prepared a member communication with details about the all-member rollout for associations to e-mail or mail to members or to post online. Download and customize the letter for your membership.
3. Promote Online Training
In Nov. 2012, REALTOR® Magazine hosted a free webinar for agents showing how RPR’s advanced technology tools and features can be used to provide clients and customers with dynamic reports and analytics.
In addition, RPR® hosts free twice-weekly basic training webinars providing an overview of how to search properties, refine values, generate reports, and manage the user profile.
Many states have approved an RPR Continuing Education course ($39) that allows REALTORS® to receive three continuing education credits for taking a three-hour online training course through REALTOR® University's School of Professional Development and Continuing Education.
4. Conduct In-Person Training
RPR® can provide trainers to lead in-person RPR® walkthroughs at your association.
You may also facilitate your own in-person training for you members. Visit the training section of the RPR® blog site to:
- watch RPR's Train the Trainer video
- download readymade Powerpoint presentations on the basics of RPR® and use cases for implementing RPR® when working with buyers or with sellers for use in your training sessions
