December 10, 2013, Irvine, Calif. –
CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading residential property information, analytics and services provider, today announced that the four largest REALTOR® associations of Southwest Florida have selected Matrix™ by CoreLogic to create the region’s first unified multiple listing platform.
The combined membership of more than 12,000 real estate professionals is comprised of the Bonita Springs-Estero Association of REALTORS, the Cape Coral Association of REALTORS, the Naples Area Board of REALTORS and the newest signatory, the REALTOR Association of Greater Fort Myers and the Beach. The agreement with CoreLogic represents the first time the four associations have cooperated to create a unified multiple listing platform and is the first Matrix installation in the state of Florida.
“There has always been considerable market overlap among Southwest Florida REALTOR associations,” said Wes Kunkle, president of the Naples Area Board of REALTORS. “For many years, our brokers and agents have needed to belong to multiple associations and use multiple systems to do business. We came together as a group in 2012 to examine the possibility of adopting a common platform and to evaluate potential vendors. In our assessment, Matrix and the CoreLogic team offered the best opportunity to consolidate and expand our market coverage through a single interface. Together with CoreLogic, we have successfully eliminated the inefficiencies and redundant fees that our members tolerated for so many years, and have created a shared environment that will let our agents better serve their customers.”
CoreLogic successfully launched the Southwest Florida Matrix system in August for Bonita Springs-Estero, Cape Coral and Naples. Fort Myers gained access to the new system in early October.
“Joining the Southwest Florida system and unifying our real estate market was a logical decision made in the best interests of our members,” said Doreen Falcone, president of the REALTOR Association of Greater Fort Myers and the Beach. “CoreLogic was able to bring us onto the Matrix platform in record time, and the initial reaction of our members has been extremely positive. We’re very pleased to be a part of the Southwest Florida alliance.”
“It’s exciting to see a new regional organization coming together under the CoreLogic banner,” said Ben Graboske, senior vice president of Real Estate and Financial Services for CoreLogic. “Cooperative initiatives like this one put more data at the fingertips of real estate agents and their clients, which is precisely what the industry is crying out for. Best of all, Matrix makes it easy to access that data, anytime from any device.”
