VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/05/14 -- RESAAS Services Inc. (CSE: RSS), The Real Estate Social Network, is pleased to announce it has signed an agreement with RE/MAX LLC (NYSE: RMAX), the franchisor of the global RE/MAX network, headquartered in Denver, Colorado.
Under the terms of the agreement, RE/MAX will provide their worldwide network of 90,000 agents with a private RE/MAX Global Referral Network, delivered on the RESAAS Platform. The Network supports multiple currencies, multiple units and multiple languages to assist the vast global footprint of RE/MAX.
"RE/MAX has remained a leading global real estate franchisor by providing each of our more than 6,000 independently owned and operated offices with tools that are flexible enough to adapt to the various geographic regions," said Larry Oberly, Vice President, Global Franchise and Business Solutions at RE/MAX LLC. "We are pleased to begin using RESAAS to offer an efficient means to increase referrals for our many different regions and to better communicate internally. In addition, we look forward to benefiting from the built-in social marketing components RESAAS provides each of our agents."
RE/MAX LLC has enjoyed another year of significant expansion, with offices opening in more than 13 new countries across the globe during 2013.
The RE/MAX Global Referral Network provides all RE/MAX agents with the ability to easily discover fellow agents and brokerages around the world. A private internal social network blends activity from all RE/MAX regions around the world. This gives agents a way to explore, connect and drive referrals in a completely self-serve manner, supported by 26 languages, with Spanish being the first translated language officially released in February 2014.
"RE/MAX is synonymous with real estate on a global basis, so naturally we are pleased to be able to provide the power of the RESAAS Platform to supply RE/MAX with a digital solution that matches their well-established physical presence," said Tom Rossiter, President at RESAAS. "RESAAS was built first and foremost for the real estate agent, so to partner with RE/MAX and provide their network of agents with all the benefits RESAAS offers brings great opportunities for both companies."
RESAAS's social network expanded substantially during 2013, with adoption by major real estate brokerages, brands and associations. The emergence of RESAAS as a global real estate eco-system has been fueled by providing a translated version of the social network, prompting growth from overseas and making RESAAS a truly global network of real estate professionals.
RESAAS is a singular platform where all real estate agents can discover, connect, learn, market, refer and network with other real estate professionals locally, nationally and around the world.
The RE/MAX Global Referral Network was announced at the RE/MAX R4 Annual International Convention held in Las Vegas on March 3rd to 7th 2014.
