ePD Charges Up Marketing Power for Oklahoma City
The Source would like extend our thoughts and well wishes to all the communities being ravaged by this spring’s devastating storms. We were in the process of drafting this blog post when we discovered that Oklahoma City and surrounding areas were in the direct path of the latest round of storms. You can join the relief efforts by visiting and donating to the REALTOR® Relief Foundation which in turn makes donations to the disaster relief efforts of REALTOR® state associations.
When Oklahoma City Metro Association of REALTORS® (OKCMAR) was looking for effective ways for their members to market their properties and stay competitive, they looked to ePropertyData (ePD) – owned by Second Century Ventures the strategic investment arm of the National Association of REALTORS®. With Allied Real Estate Commercial Services (ARCS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of OKCMAR, ePD helped to custom design a commercial information exchange (CIE) that was launched last year.
Now ePD has created for ARCS a member-only “haves and wants” feature in response to the needs and desires of the nearly 3,000 commercial practitioners who are members of OKCMAR. It also connects them to the 150,000 commercial practitioners in the ePD network of CIE systems around the country. “ePD prides itself on providing unique, responsive and revenue-generating features to its customers,” said Connie Capone, ePD CEO.
ARCS CEO, Dawn Kennedy shared with us that she is not only excited about this opportunity for ARCS participants but also for the economic development of Oklahoma City. “The Oklahoma properties will be at the fingertips of commercial brokers throughout the US, not only when brokers are actively seraching but when the practitioners access the system to compile comparables or enter in new listings,” said Dawn.
Congratulations to OKCMAR and ePD on their continued collaboration and success! Stay tuned to the The Source for more announcements from ePD and their partners.
