Press Release   •   Jan 24, 2013 16:00 EST

The International MLS [IMLS] has announced today the selection of Hammond Residential Real Estate as the Preferred Partner in the United States real estate marketplace for the Greater Boston area.

“We are excited to have Hammond Residential Real Estate as the new Preferred Partner covering the entire greater Boston area,” said Dr. Daniel Nussbaum, CEO/Founder of The International Realty, Inc. He continued by saying, “All of their property listings will be on The International MLS shortly, and this gives The IMLS representation in 7 states now. Hammond Residential Real Estate is one of the most prominent real estate firms in Eastern Massachusetts, and I think this new affiliation shows how Hammond is always looking to represent their seller clients in the best possible manner by marketing and promoting their listings globally. With 16 offices and approximately 400 agents, Hammond is perfectly positioned to leverage what The IMLS can bring to them. We are very happy about this and feel that this signifies the ability of The IMLS to partner with the other top tier agencies across the United States like Hammond Residential Real Estate.”  

The IMLS Preferred Partner Program provides an exclusive opportunity for a firm to leverage The IMLS brand, intellectual property, and worldwide exposure to recruit more agents to their team as well as for all of their agents to add more listings by using The IMLS brand and platform in marketing to home sellers who wish to have global exposure of their homes in the hopes of receiving the best possible price for their property.

Each Preferred Partner in their area will have this opportunity with The International MLS [IMLS] going forward to use The International MLS [IMLS] logo and marketing materials, and will have all of their listings on The IMLS platform at no cost.

The International MLS [IMLS], after bringing on more than 200,000 international listings from signed commission and promotion agreements all over the world, and recently delivering these international properties to the new Realtor.com international area, is now entering the U. S. market with a selected broker in each market in the country who wish to take advantage of The IMLS platform to grow their own local business.  

Home sellers in the United States can now expect their homes to be marketed globally through a referred IMLS Preferred Partner and have their listings exported to several popular international real estate sites in similar fashion, in addition to the free IMLS search which is being delivered across the United States and around the world.

Saul B. Cohen, President and Founder of Hammond Residential said, “The world-class hospitals, museums, and institutions of higher education in Greater Boston have made our area very attractive to highly mobile international executives, particularly those based in Europe. Our new affiliation with The International MLS will make detailed information about our seller clients’ luxury properties available to these potential buyers.”
