Inman Select brings intelligence, conversation and engagement to a fast-growing audience

Group membership expands swiftly as MLSs, associations, brokerages, franchises and tech companies sign up

Earlier this month, David Charron, president and CEO of MRIS, spoke to a group of 40 brokers in Warrenton, Virginia. “When I asked how many in the audience used Inman Select courtesy of MRIS, all but two raised their hands. Those two brokers joined later that day,” he said.

MRIS was one of the first large MLS organizations to sign up for Inman Select, which provides its members a premium membership to Inman, giving them access to breaking news, feature stories, industry profiles, 167 expert contributors (and growing), research and live streaming of Inman events. (On Wednesday, March 25, MRIS members will have access to a special Inman conference, the two-hour Select Live event, taking place from 10 a.m. to noon PST.)

“The quality content on Inman Select helps me and our BHGRE broker-owners stay ahead of emerging trends and determine what we need to do to be truly a next-generation real estate brand,” said Sherry Chris, president and CEO of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate. “Our industry is very complex today; Select helps us break through the ‘noise’ and concentrate on what really matters.”

As Inman Select readership grows, engagement and readership at Inman has greatly expanded. More and more readers are commenting, arguing, debating and helping one another in the Inman community. Recent topical stories have received more than 100 comments, creating a healthy back-and-forth as the industry tries to map out its future with so many changes.

“This is all about raising the real estate IQ,” said Inman Publisher Brad Inman. “Select is making that happen.”

Recent new group members include Trulia, SABOR, Alaska MLS, Concierge Auction, Maponics, Austin Board of Realtors, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, RESPRO, Callaway Henderson Sotheby’s International Realty, Tuscaloosa Association of Realtors, Beverly-Hanks & Associates, Wisconsin Realtors Association and MetroList.
