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.
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
E-mail 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.
Promote Online Training
On Nov. 29 at 3 p.m. Eastern, REALTOR® Magazine will host a free webinar for agents showing how RPR’s advanced technology tools and features can be utilized 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.
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
