The product suite will help Century 21 M&M’s 750 agents and staff in 20 Central California offices to better meet the changing demands of consumers and to operate at peak efficiency.
Century 21 M&M selected the rDesk® Broker Suite for features such as customized broker and agent Web sites, expert lead and contact management, and Action Plan Manager, just to name a few. The comprehensive Web-based suite of integrated software solutions provides brokers with online marketing and productivity tools for a competitive advantage throughout the real estate lifecycle, including acquiring leads, working with buyers and sellers on more transactions, building a strong referral network and creating customers for life. In addition, Century 21 M&M will join LPS Real Estate Group’s Real Estate & Living Media, a network that connects real estate publishers (real estate companies’ Web sites) to the nation’s leading advertisers while generating 24/7 revenue for the publishers.
“These are extremely challenging times for real estate professionals,” said Larry Matos, president and co-founder of Century 21 M&M. “The current challenges of today’s market will ultimately pass, however the business of real estate has changed forever, and it will continue to change.  We wanted a technology partner that could combine leading-edge tools with a solid track record for innovation and that could promise to keep us ahead of the inevitable changes that face us down the road.”
LPS Real Estate Group’s rDesk® Broker Suite includes:
§         rDesk® Broker Website and Contact Manager: a tool for managing leads and contacts.
§         rDesk® Resource Center: one central hub to share information with clients, as well as productivity and marketing tools to manage an agent’s daily operations.
§         Action Plan Manager: an automatic drip marketing campaign manager and professional flier program.
§         Neighborhood & School Reports: the industry’s most thorough information for buyers on neighborhoods, schools and the environment.
The Contact Manager system creates a broker’s online communication and customer management hub for the entire office with easy-to-use software tools to manage leads, customers, listings and transactions.  The system instantly routes new leads to participating agents, and then ensures that the agents respond within the timeframe set by the broker. Contact Manager also accommodates real estate teams, other office groups, and e-teams to share in new prospects collected by the broker’s own site and in their market’s portion of more than 600,000 leads LPS Real Estate Group generates for its broker customers each year.
            “The trend we’re seeing among America’s brokers and franchise networks is the drive to leverage the value of a single technology partner that can integrate all their needs – from data aggregation to agent productivity tools to methods for marketing their listings,” said John Hensley, chief product and technology officer, LPS Real Estate Group. “Our goal with the rDesk® Broker Suite is to give brokers the most powerful tools for all functions, equipping their company and agents to become the most successful in their market area.  We’re pleased that Century 21 M&M has selected our system, and their commitment is another testimonial to the quality of customers that LPS attracts to our rDesk® platform,” said Hensley.
