Vancouver, BC, March 8, 2019 – Whistler Listing Systems (WLS), a comprehensive property listing site and database for Whistler, Pemberton and the Sea to Sky region and Real Estate Wire (REW), the leading Canadian real estate portal for listings, new home developments and insights, today announced a data partnership agreement to allow WLS members to best market their local expertise and services to international and Canadian consumers.
The partnership brings innovation to one of Canada’s most idyllic real estate settings, coupling WLS sales transaction data with REW’s state-of-the-art technology platform. REW can now validate agents’ local expertise and use that data to increase agent reach, while providing an optimal search experience for anyone looking for properties in Whistler.
“The partnership with REW makes sense, since we believe the expertise of our WLS agents holds significant weight not only with local buyers and sellers, but also with our strong national and international consumer interest,” says Pat Kelly, co-owner, WLS. “An added bonus is that REW is a Canadian leader in the real estate tech space, with over 3 million visitors to their site monthly, and is considered the go to site for real estate in the lower mainland,” says Ann Chiasson, co-owner, WLS.
WLS members will be able to promote their experience to REW’s growing base of active home buyers and sellers. Visitors to REW.CA can search by neighbourhood, address, square footage, school and other criteria; they can now also contact experienced local agents that specialize in the type of product or area in which they’re searching.
“We’re letting the data about an agent’s experience drive them to consumers in a really innovative way,” says Ian Martin, Director of Industry Development & Partnerships. “Using our easy search site, consumers find properties and local agents with the right skills, and agents can best market their local expertise to this audience. It’s a win win for both sides.”
