Lisle, Illinois, UNITED STATES

LISLE, Ill., Dec. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED), the multiple listing service (MLS) of Chicagoland and the surrounding counties, is thrilled to welcome the Livingston County Board of Realtors® (LCBR) as its newest association partner. LCBR is the fifteenth and most recent Realtor® association to obtain its MLS and related services from MRED.

This partnership adds LCBR’s membership of real estate professionals to MRED’s growing network of more than 45,000, which spans across all of northeastern Illinois and reaches into central and western parts of the state.

“The Livingston County Board of Realtors is excited to join forces with MRED and become a networking partner with several of the local MLS boards that surround us,” said LCBR President Jill Thompson.

LCBR will continue to operate in central Illinois’ Livingston County, the fourth-largest county in the state. LCBR covers the county’s nearly 40,000 residents in 15,000 households across 16,000 housing units. Livingston is the twenty-second county in MRED’s service area, which continues to expand in order to best serve the MLS’ real estate professionals by perpetually improving data and services.

“It’s been a pleasure getting to know the fantastic LCBR leadership and learning how MRED will be able to best meet the needs of their members,” said MRED President/CEO Rebecca Jensen. “LCBR has been extremely easy to work with and we’re beyond excited to welcome them as a integral association partner.”

The partnership is beneficial for MRED customers as a whole, and Thompson said it’s also the right move for her association’s members.

“By joining MRED, our sellers will now have a larger Realtor audience for all of our MLS listings and we'll have easier access to out-of-area listings when working with our buyer clients as well,” Thompson said. “As a board, we’re thrilled to have the power of MRED and all of its technology and applications at our fingertips.”

The LCBR-MRED announcement comes less than three months after Illinois’ largest MLS welcomed the Bloomington-Normal Association of Realtors® (BNAR) and its more than 500 real estate professionals to MRED.
