RPR beefs up agent training as Upstream enters next phase

  • 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.

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.
