New ABR® App for iPhone Helps REALTORS® Connect with Buyers

Chicago, IL – January 24, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Realtors® who work with buyers now have a new resource available through the ABR® App for the iPhone. Available now through the iTunes store, this new benefit will help Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designees grow their business while also connecting with home buyers.

The ABR® iPhone App is the latest resource from the National Association of Realtors®’ Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council. This powerful and practical app was developed by Jacobs & Clevenger, a multichannel marketing communications firm, working in close partnership with the NAR.

“The ABR® iPhone App is one more resource that helps Realtors® add value to the real estate transaction,” said NAR President Ron Phipps, broker-president of Phipps Realty in Warwick, R.I. “Realtors® apply technology to enhance business processes and client relations, and the resources available through the ABR® iPhone App are extremely practical both as a professional resource and when out in the field with buyers.”

The ABR® App for the iPhone is designed to help buyers’ agents access useful member benefits while on the go. Users have access to resources for home buyers, finance calculators, marketing tips and articles from Today’s Buyer’s Rep, REBAC’s monthly membership newsletter. Realtors® can also use the app to share useful articles with potential buyers via e-mail.

“Today’s agents are increasingly using smart phones in their day-to-day business,” said Marc Gould, executive director of REBAC. “This application not only allows NAR members access to the many tools and resources available through REBAC membership, but also it provides them with the ability to share these resources with today’s buyers.”
