BPP Newsletter: May 2019
The Broker Public Portal is pleased to announce that Homesnap Pro is now available to more than 1,000,000 agents (more than 80% of REALTORS in the U.S.). Since the launch of the Broker Public Portal in 2017, Homesnap has quickly emerged as the top rated app for agents and consumers across the country (4.8 out of 5 stars in the App Store) and is available in more than 200 MLS markets.
“This is a landmark moment for our company,” said Homesnap co-founder Steve Barnes. “Since our founding, our mission has been to serve and work with the industry, recognizing the value that agents and brokers bring to their clients. We set out to build a national brand with a national footprint, and now that Homesnap is accessible to over one million real estate professionals, that vision is becoming a reality.”Read more
NAR Midyear Trade Show and Party
Homesnap is grateful to all of our supporters, MLS and industry partners, employees, friends and family for making this year’s NAR Mid-year Expo and cocktail party an event to remember. The party was a blast, and Homesnap certainly made its presence felt in the Expo with a brand new Homesnap exhibit, a spacious training area and a meeting suite specifically for brokers and MLSs.
The BPP has proven to be one of real estate’s most successful industry initiatives. In a recent article, Kevin Hawkins of the WAV Group wrote that “the Homesnap booth stood as a testament to its pervasiveness. Never before have MLSs and brokerage firms collaborated on re-imagining a fundamental building block of the industry. The collaboration and unification of our industry around a central idea is powerful, and the execution has been better than anyone imagined.”
We look forward to seeing everyone next year!Join the movement
