Dear Industry Colleagues:

We are all facing a truly unprecedented situation. The global COVID-19 pandemic is affecting our homes and families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life. During this time, I wanted to reach out and update you on how the Broker Public Portal with Homesnap is specifically addressing the needs of brokers and agents around the country.

First and foremost, our hearts go out to anyone who’s been impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly. We’re focused on the health and safety of our staff, colleagues and members. And we’re truly inspired by the selfless healthcare workers around the country who are on the front lines working tirelessly to care for people in need.

Second, the BPP is working closely with the industry, to ensure that MLSs, brokerages, and agents have the tools they need to weather this storm. We published the electronic Agent Guide to Homesnap During COVID-19 to highlight key features of Homesnap that help keep real estate business going while social distancing measures are in place, such as Virtual Open Houses and Homesnap Stories.

Third, the BPP with Homesnap remains laser-focused on the success of MLSs and brokerages. We continue to enhance our product to better serve our partners and their communities. This moment reminds us that we’re all connected like never before, and being of service to one another is crucial in this moment.

As we move forward, the BPP stands committed to serving the industry through this pandemic, and we always value your questions, ideas and feedback. I invite you to read the attached guidebook to learn more about Homesnap’s offering and partnership opportunities. Please contact our team at BPP@Homesnap.com anytime with questions or feedback. Stay safe!

Sincerely,

John Mosey
President & CEO, NorthstarMLS
Chairman, The Broker Public Portal

Bring Your Listing to Life with Homesnap Stories

With Homesnap Stories, you can add unique, engaging marketing content right to your active listings through the Homesnap Pro app.

Think of all the selling points about a home that are tough to get across in a photo. Now, you can take your own photos and videos and add them directly to your Homesnap listing. Add text, emojis, and even use augmented reality to create one-of-a-kind marketing content that you can also share on Facebook and Instagram. Record a voice-over or add music to personalize your Stories even more.

Homesnap wants agents to have an easy, engaging way to create marketing content (especially video) on their own, and that’s the benefit of Homesnap Stories. (And don’t forget, Homesnap is the technology provider of the Broker Public Portal!)

Check out this short video and see how Homesnap Stories works!
