Upstream will begin beta testing its platform sometime this year. To get agents and brokers up to speed, the company building the Upstream platform — Realtors Property Resource — has signed an agreement with a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Kansas Association of Realtors, Real Estate Business Resources to boost web-based and end-user training.
- Realtors Property Resource (RPR) has inked a deal with a subsidiary of the Kansas Association of Realtors, REBR, to supplement its agent training on Upstream.
- Brokers who choose to use Upstream to enter their listings into their MLS must enter and edit all of their MLS listings via Upstream.
- RPR says it hired REBR in part because of "the potential for rapid market level expansion" of Upstream.
- Upstream is beginning its second pilot with seven new markets, but so far only two MLSs have unequivocally confirmed they will participate.
