Associations find success with member benefit

Ray Larcher, president and CEO of Triangle MLS Inc. and executive vice president for the Raleigh Regional Association of Realtors, said a centralized showing service that the board of directors unanimously approved in 2002 has become vital for many members.

"It took more than two years to get everyone on board, but if we eliminated this service today, it would cost my job," Larcher said. "It is the No. 1 performing service in our association."
