SAN JOSE, Calif., and NEW YORK, Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Realtor.com®, operated by Move, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOVE), announced today an agreement with The Corcoran Group for publication of the brokerage firm's Manhattan and Brooklyn real estate listings. The agreement provides buyers and sellers with timely and accurate information on all Corcoran listings in the New York City marketplace on realtor.com®, adding to the site's multiple listing service (MLS) listings in all 62 counties in the state. It also expands Corcoran's reach online to millions of web and mobile users on realtor.com® as well as listing portals on leading consumer news destinations.
Corcoran is the first large New York City brokerage firm to provide real estate listing content to realtor.com® since the historic July 24, 2013 National Association of REALTORS® board of directors meeting where the board recommended that the REALTORS® Information Network (RIN) modify its agreement for the operation of realtor.com® with Real Select, a Move subsidiary, to further expand listing content on realtor.com® to be even more comprehensive.
The inclusion of direct content from brokerages expands and enriches the user experience on realtor.com® to provide buyers and sellers with access to a greater breadth of listing information, and further solidifies realtor.com® as the most complete and reliable online and mobile destination for all things real estate.
"This agreement delivers on the promise of the historic decision made by the National Association of REALTORS® this summer to empower realtor.com® as the most timely, accurate and comprehensive source of real estate information anywhere," said Errol Samuelson, president of realtor.com®. "I'm extremely proud to be launching this implementation with one of New York's most innovative and prestigious brokerages, bringing unparalleled quality and breadth of listing information as well as the expertise of REALTORS® to buyers and sellers like never before."
According to The Corcoran Group president and CEO Pamela Liebman, "This alliance provides an enhanced level of service to Corcoran customers and agents by tapping into the expansive realtor.com® audience and its award-winning mobile experience. We are proud to continue our tradition of offering the most advanced interactive technology opportunities to our audience, and are thrilled to work with realtor.com as Corcoran continues its innovative leadership position in the New York market."
In addition to the website, realtor.com® offers highly rated mobile real estate apps available for Apple and Android. New features continue to add to the mobile experience provided by the realtor.com® mobile app, including the addition this past spring of school boundary search among other features.
Just weeks after the historic vote, realtor.com® announced the addition of new home plans and communities on the realtor.com® website and mobile web offerings, using content sourced from Move's joint venture partner Builders Digital Experience (BDX). Together, these initiatives signal a new unprecedented level of access to comprehensive real estate information for buyers and sellers available exclusively at realtor.com®.
