Washington, DC – May 6, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Commercial members of the National Association of Realtors® will have greater access to commercial information exchange data through a new mobile application by ePropertyData.
ePD, a leading CIE solutions provider, is owned by NAR and operates CIEs throughout the U.S., offering data solutions to more than 150,000 commercial real estate professionals.
“Realtors® build communities, and Realtors® who practice commercial real estate help revitalize communities by facilitating investment which supports millions of jobs nationwide,” said NAR President Ron Phipps, broker-president of Phipps Realty in Warwick, R.I. “ePD’s new mobile application not only helps Realtors® further their commercial real estate business, but also it is another innovative way they bring value to their clients and the real estate transaction.”
ePD clients own their data, own their brands and control their costs with the choices ePD products provide such as the researched system, or a broker-loaded system, or a combination of both. Large, fragmented markets as well as smaller, organized markets benefit from ePD’s customized approach.
One such market that has successfully integrated ePD products is the Triangle Commercial Association of Realtors® in Morrisville, N.C. “In light of recent changes in the commercial real estate data world, we’re proud to partner with ePD in providing a secure and cost-effective solution to our members,” said Kim Brennan, executive officer, TCAR and the TACQUIRE Total Access Commercial Real Estate Exchange. “The new mobile application allows TACQUIRE members to stay in constant contact with their data, saving them time and money.”
“ePD knows a successful CIE listens to the market and builds solutions specific to the needs of that market,” said Bob Goldberg, NAR senior vice president of Marketing and Business Development, Commercial Services and Business Specialties. “ePD has the ability to work closely with clients and grow with them as their needs change over time.”
The mobile application is only available to ePD-operated CIEs. Visit the ePD website at www.epropertydata.com to learn more about joining ePD’s CIE family and to visit client websites. Members of ePD-operated CIEs will be able to download the mobile application from their member accounts.
