“We are excited to have Melinda Estridge and The Estridge Group of Long and Foster as our first Preferred Partner and to launch this out in the USA right in the nation’s capital, Washington, DC.,” says Dr. Daniel Nussbaum, CEO/Founder of The International Realty, Inc. He continues by saying, “I met Melinda years ago at an NAR Expo in Washington DC and was struck by how forward thinking she was and always wanting to do her very best for her clients. The Estridge Group is situated in a prime location right in our nation's capital of Washington D.C and Montgomery County, MD and we could not be more delighted about this.”
The IMLS Preferred Partner Program provides an exclusive opportunity for a broker or top agent team to leverage The IMLS brand, intellectual property, and worldwide exposure to add more agents to their team as well as for all of their agents to use in marketing to home sellers who wish to have global exposure of their homes in the hopes of receiving the best possible price for the sale of their property.
Each Preferred Partner in their county or area will have this opportunity with The International MLS (IMLS) going forward to use The International MLS (IMLS) logo and marketing materials, and can have all of their listings on The IMLS platform at no cost.
The International MLS (IMLS), after bringing on more than 200,000 international listings from signed commission and promotion agreements all over the world, and recently delivering these international properties to the new Realtor.com international area, is now entering the USA market with a selected broker in each market in the country who wish to take advantage of The IMLS platform to grow their own local business.
Home sellers in the USA can now expect their homes to be marketed globally through a referred IMLS Preferred Partner and have their listings exported to several popular international real estate sites in similar fashion, in addition to the free IMLS search which is being delivered across the USA and around the world.
"I take great pride in my work to keep a finger on the pulse of innovation and technology in the Real Estate Business," said Melinda Estridge. "This enables me to best position my clients with cutting edge techniques when representing them. Each and every client deserves the highest level of marketing and exposure and I am committed to providing that level of service. In joining The IMLS, I have great hopes and expectations that we will take our business to an even higher level and thrive and grow along with this company as it positions itself globally."
