Colorado Real Estate Brokers to Benefit from New Metrolist Partnership
Denver’s Largest MLS Teaming With Hillside Software To Provide Full Suite Of Real Estate Tools
Denver, CO, January 24, 2012 - Metrolist®, the largest Multiple Listing Service (MLS) serving Colorado, announced it has entered into a partnership with Hillside Software®, a provider of Real Estate Technology Software Systems, to deliver a variety of technology tools to Front Range real estate professionals.
Metrolist will provide Virtual Office, Hillside’s flagship product, along with other online tools--available to its 14,000 members as of January 4.
“Hillside Software has been a market leader in Denver for over 15 years,” said James T. Wanzeck, Metrolist Board Chairman and President of RE/MAX Masters, “and this arrangement allows us to make the firm’s top products available to all of our members. The partnership will enable real estate brokers to better serve the needs of today’s home buyers and sellers.”
Greenwood Village-based Hillside Software has developed a full suite of real estate software ranging from MLS productivity tools to online marketing services for real estate brokers.
“We’re excited to be able to bring Virtual Office to real estate brokers with Metrolist,” said Alex Levy, Hillside Software President. “With the economic recession and slower housing market, our customers are looking for ways to maximize their budgets while still delivering top-notch services for buyers and sellers. Our partnership with Metrolist will allow this to happen in 2012.”
As part of the agreement, Metrolist will augment its services with a set of MLS tools from Hillside Software that includes Virtual Office, a comparative market analysis (CMA) package, a client e-mail alert system, and statistical analysis software. These products, combined with the most accurate housing data available from the MLS, will make Front Range real estate brokers better able to manage the complexities of today’s market.
“Many of our 14,000 members are already familiar with Virtual Office,” said Mr. Wanzeck. “Now they’ll get the professional level package as well as Hillside’s market statistics tool with their Metrolist membership. We’ll be able to deliver more value in 2012 to real estate professionals and give them powerful tools.”
Other Hillside Software products like online marketing and website packages will be made available from the Metrolist Marketplace for purchase.
“When combining the MLS productivity tools with the other ancillary products we offer, Colorado brokers will have very powerful options to grow their businesses,” said Mr. Levy. “This is a very exciting time for us and we’re proud to have been able to put together this important partnership with Metrolist.”
