Online PR News – 29-July-2011 – – NEW YORK â€“ Real estate brokers all over New York can now list and sell properties throughout the entire state with a new, web-based multiple listing service.
CoBroke MLS, a computerized database designed for real estate agents to share listing information with other professionals within its network, helps brokers avoid referral fees and fines. It also opens up a wide range of opportunities for agents to list and sell properties beyond the limitations of local multiple listing services.
"We created CoBroke MLS after realizing the need for a Multiple Listing Service that would give brokers statewide access to real estate listings," said Anthony Carollo, president of the company." This database serves as an alternative solution to the complicated and expensive Multiple Listing options that only allow brokers access to certain geographical areas."
When using CoBroke MLS, members will have access to the same listings that other listing services provide, but will not have to deal with the hassle of fines, suspensions and education requirements. In addition, brokers will no longer have to pay referral fees for listings that have been taken from outside the range of their own localities.
Members receive several significant benefits, including full access to the CoBroke MLS web-based system, the ability to instantly add, modify and search listings, access to public records and listings that are marketed to an online consumer website.
"With this service, brokers can take listings from across the state of New York and get their fair share of the commission," Carollo said. "We believe that if you are licensed, you should be able to list and sell properties anywhere in the state. This is especially true during a tough economy, when sales are hard to come by."
At a time when most MLS companies continue to raise their fees, CoBroke MLS is looking to provide a way for real estate brokers to make a decent living. To find out more about the suite of tools this new service provides to licensed professionals in New York State, visit www.cobrokemls.com.
