Point2 Technologies has unveiled a new broker community site, REliberation.com, for its broker and agent customers to collaborate, promote and drive future successes and advance key industry issues through discussion, debate and opinion sharing.
The beta site made its debut on Jan. 26, and has attracted hundreds of authors and contributors discussing key issues such as the role of the MLS (Multiple Listing Service), lead-generation services and disintermediation, technology overload, blogging and market conditions.
“We’re empowering the fast-growing base of National Listing Service members with one more tool they can leverage to take back the future of real estate. Many want to gain back complete control and choice over whom they choose to do business, and where their listings get advertised,” said Brendan King, chief operating officer of Point2 Technologies. “REliberation is where discussions focus on building the value of the real estate professional and organized real estate marketing, for the benefit of both consumers and the industry alike.”
The launch of REliberation.com follows a trend in tools and venues being offered to real estate professionals that enable online conversations, collaboration and networking.
InternetCrusade last week unveiled RealTown.com, a new Internet portal containing a depth of real estate-related content created by a community of real estate professionals. Site visitors can read blogs about real estate and browse discussions about common issues faced by brokers and agents.
ActiveRain also is a large site where real estate professionals can network with each other.
