Why are so many brokers joining every day??
There are a few simple reasons:
1. There is Strength in Numbers
Every time you turn on your computer, we are all seeing multi-billion-dollar companies buying up the core tools used by Brokers and MLSs. Venture Capitalists and Billionaires are buying up the industry and are getting more powerful. They could take us out at any minute! Brokers believe there’s strength in numbers working together across the state!
2. Broker Profitability is getting hit from all sides!
Brokers are getting hit with eroding commissions, bigger commission splits, and ever-increasing technology and operating costs. They are looking for an MLS that gets them statewide and nationwide listing exposure without spending thousands on data feeds. With just one low monthly fee, Brokers and agents can expand listing exposure from hundreds of agents in their local market to thousands!
3. Brokers Want to help Their Agents Generate Business Opportunities
Every broker wants to help every one of their agents succeed. They like Greater Southern MLS because it offers an impressive suite of tools to generate statewide and nationwide business opportunities for their Residential, New Builds, Rentals and Commercial properties.
4. Brokers want an MLS that Listens and Responds Quickly to their Needs
An MLS run by brokers and progressive Associations responds quickly to market changes. Every Greater Southern MLS Shareholder is invited to a monthly meeting where policies, new products, market changes and emerging market needs are discussed. Every shareholder has the opportunity to be actively engaged in shaping their own MLS they own!
5. Everybody WINS and gets a piece of the profit!
While Greater Southern MLS wants to keep prices as low as possible and provide the best tech, service, support and training it can, it also wants to encourage every agent and broker to become a part of the Greater Southern MLS Marketing Network of professionals. When the company is profitable, the Board of Directors will allocate payments to EVERY agent and broker who participates in Greater Southern MLS!
