Los Angeles, CA, May 02, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The International MLS [IMLS] has announced it has reached an exclusive licensing and marketing agreement with Valerie Fitzgerald, CEO of The Valerie Fitzgerald Group in Beverly Hills, CA.
As a Preferred Partner, The Valerie Fitzgerald Group will have the ability to provide instant worldwide coverage for her client's property listings on The IMLS platform including all of The IMLS' searches distributed globally, on the company's two websites, TheInternationalMLS.com and TheInternationalRealty.com, as well as being syndicated to the most popular international real estate portals.
The International MLS [IMLS] is the first Free-to-List Commission Share International MLS that delivers a no-cost proprietary IMLS search around the world. Recently, The IMLS signed a three-year agreement with Move Inc. to provide its international listings from agencies outside the United States onto the REALTOR.com platform.
"Listing our client's properties on The International MLS, in addition to the local MLS, will give our clients’ homes increased global exposure, as well as an opportunity to maximize the sales price of their homes,” says Fitzgerald. “There is a very strong foreigner buyer interest in the Los Angeles area and The IMLS will bring residential sellers additional exposure in the global real estate market.”
"Valerie Fitzgerald is one of the top producing brokers in the US and consumers will be well taken care of because of her reputation, integrity and strength in the real estate market," says The International Realty, Inc. CEO, Dr. Daniel Nussbaum. "Our Preferred Providers are carefully selected from the best in their marketplace. The IMLS partnership will give Fitzgerald a strategic advantage when securing new residential listings, as today’s savvy home sellers want increased global exposure for their properties."
"Demand from people from neighboring states, as well as from International buyers, may help drive customers to The Valerie Fitzgerald Group properties and we welcome them to service clients from all over the world. Fitzgerald will play a major role in our Los Angeles and Orange County efforts, and this is testimony to how she always looks for new marketing opportunities that bring great value and service to her clients," says Nussbaum.
The Valerie Fitzgerald Group, along with all larger USA brokers can now send an automated electronic feed of their company's listings to The IMLS that will be promoted on a worldwide scale on The IMLS search, as well as on other popular international real estate sites.
The IMLS is the only company that provides the ability for properties to be listed on hundreds of thousands of websites, empowering all agents and brokers around the world to share in commissions. Additionally, The IMLS provides the opportunity for smaller brokers to have their listings included on MLS/IDX providers and syndicators, as well as agents and brokers who can list their properties manually.
In addition, agents and brokers worldwide are adopting The IMLS search not only because it is free, but by several reasons including that it enhances the agent’s prestige and ability to showcase international properties on their own website to begin with. Agents and brokers can earn referral commissions simply for having a website customer who registers through their search and ends up purchasing a property somewhere in the world outside of their normal market.
