And we're training! Remine Pro, our new property tax data portal, is officially launching in full-swing starting 2020. We hosted 2 days of classes to train our agents in all the powerful tools that this new system will provide.

Remine gives our Realtors® access to 200+ public records data to help better service our clients. With data, flood maps and more at our fingertips, we are increasingly valuable in what we bring to the table to help sell your property, or to help you buy the right place.

Each day we had the same session reviewed, to make sure everyone had a chance to come to the training. We discussed each step of the program, how to make the most of each tool and how to find all the data we have been used to seeing in our retiring…
