The Nevada County Association of Realtors has signed a multiyear contract with Rapattoni Corp. to use the company’s multiple listing service software and service.
Based in Grass Valley, Calif., the Nevada County Association of Realtors has approximately 640 members, who will join about 200,000 users of Rapattoni’s MLS products nationwide. the company said.
Rapattoni’s Web-based MLS system is compatible with the Internet Explorer and Firefox Web browsers, and can be operated natively on PCs and Mac computers; it also works on most popular tablet devices and has a map-centric, touch-based interface, the company said. Rapattoni plans to release a smartphone version of its mobile interface early this year.
The agreement with Rapattoni will allow the Nevada County Association of Realtors to implement a couple of optional features built into the MLS system. One of these is Secure Logon, which features RSA Adaptive Authentication from information technology company EMC Corp. and is designed to prevent unauthorized MLS access and identify fraud and malware threats.
The other is a real estate statistics tool that generates TrendVision reports powered by Trendgraphix Inc. The reports show current, historical and seasonal trends in real estate pricing, inventory, and days on market, Rapattoni said.
"We are looking forward to the implementation of the Rapattoni MLS and the powerful new tools we are bringing to our members," said Kathy Hinman, the Nevada County Association of Realtors’ executive officer, in a statement.
The Wilmington Regional Association of Realtors, a local Realtor association in North Carolina that serves about 1,700 members, signed a multiyear contract extension for Rapattoni MLS in December.
