Greater Gateway Association of REALTORS® Partners with Midwest Real Estate Data

MRED welcomes GGAR members to collaborate with more than 45,000 real estate professionals throughout Illinois and beyond

LISLE, Ill., Aug. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED), the largest multiple listing service (MLS) in Illinois, announced it has signed an agreement to partner with the Greater Gateway Association of REALTORS® (GGAR).

This agreement gives GGAR members the opportunity to use MRED’s services in addition to their current MLS, exchanging listings directly with real estate professionals in MRED’s coverage area as well as their local marketplace.

GGAR provides resources to more than 1,200 real estate professionals across 135 offices in eight southwest Illinois counties. GGAR becomes the 16th REALTOR® association in Illinois to partner with MRED.

GGAR CEO Kyle Anderson said partnering with MRED allows his association to build on a track record of outstanding service and providing members additional opportunities to expose properties to a broader audience.

“MRED’s platform provides unique offerings and they’re known for excellent service to brokerages throughout Illinois,” Anderson said. “We’re excited to bring that service to professionals in our area as well.”

MRED's available benefits include a best-in-class MLS system as well as nearly two dozen products and services. MRED’s portfolio comes with access for GGAR members to the MLSs award-winning Help Desk and training support.

“There’s no one-size-fits-all solution to the challenges brokers and associations face, so we were thrilled to work with GGAR’s thoughtful leadership on this unique partnership,” said MRED President/CEO Rebecca Jensen. “This collaborative effort is a win-win; it expands MRED’s marketplace and provides more knowledge and opportunity for GGAR members.”

MRED and GGAR have already begun work to complete the technical implementation of this partnership. GGAR brokerages will have the opportunity to access MRED’s MLS in August.
