Fans Respond Positively to the New Look and Enhanced Functionality of MREDLLC.com
LISLE, IL–(Marketwire – Sep 13, 2012) – Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED), Chicagoland’s multiple listing service (MLS), announced that the new MREDLLC.com has been successfully launched and is enjoying a great reception from MRED real estate professionals.
This redesigned website gives real estate professionals across the Midwest a more interactive and user friendly site with which to learn about the extensive suite of products and services provided by MRED, including easy access to its workhorse MLS system, connectMLS™. This new site is the place to find tools Realtors® can use, and to discover all the information and training on how to use them.
“Love it,” said Debbie Marwitz of Coldwell Banker Honig-Bell in Cary. “Everything you need is right there in front of you. Love the ‘top stories’ scrolling at the top and the direct link to connectMLS™. The bottom quick clicks which take you right to the answers — home, statistics, training, etc. — awesome! This site is so easy to navigate. GREAT job! Thanks for all your work on this!”
“OK, so my head is now spinning with this new website,” said Kathy Przybyla of RE/MAX of Barrington. “All of the wonderful options you have given the Realtor® community — thanks!”
Users find the new MREDLLC.com to be easy to navigate and very user friendly. The tabs across the top of the site give the visitor quick and easy access to general information on various topics. The powerful search feature allows you to enter a keyword and all documentation, links and information matching that keyword will be immediately available and accessible.
“I noticed the change right away and I am very pleased with it,” said Valerie DeMarco, of Prudential Starck Realtors in Palatine. “I think that the folks behind MRED have worked diligently to bring us the best MLS service out there. I love my MLS! I like that I can access different feature information right from the home page… and it is more visually appealing than the old website.”
“I thought it was neat to learn about the power search feature that I have not paid attention to while on connectMLS™,” said Bob Little, Jr., of Little Realty in Naperville. “I like that there is a ton of information that is easy to find and the housing statistics are something I can show clients without having to do a lot of prep work. Keep up the good work and continually improving the website.”
Not only are practicing real estate professionals giving the new website high marks, but their staff members are also experiencing the benefit of a cutting-edge MREDLLC.com.
“I think it is just great,” said Linda Kous, Lead/Listing Coordinator for The G-Slow Team in Frankfort. “As an assistant there are many times I have questions and the agent is not handy so it is nice to have a resource that is so easy to read visually and ‘user friendly’. I read all the tips sent from MRED as they come but it is nice that now they are indexed so you can go back when you need them and review — the “How To” section especially! You guys are always making our work life easier. Thanks.”
Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED) is the real estate data aggregator and distributor providing the Chicagoland multiple listing service (MLS) to nearly 40,000 brokers, agents and appraisers and 8,000 offices.
