Top Ten Tools: Pocket Listings

Thu, 27 Mar 2014

We are still looking at low inventory situations in many areas, so communicating information about Exempt and Pre-MLS properties is essential. KRG Connection is an elegant answer to the issue of finding/marketing properties before they are in the MLS. This online database makes the most of our network of agents.

As a listing agent, you can put your properties into the system and be confident that agents THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY will have access. This is much more powerful than an all-office email that goes to just our office and then gets deleted immediately.

For buyers’ agents, you can give your buyers MORE. Search properties that aren’t in the MLS anytime on your mobile, laptop or desktop device. You can even SAVE a buyer search and get notified when new Pre-MLS/exempt properties are available.

Stay tuned for information about training on this tool.
