MLS Giant Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED) Starts the Season With a Win

Kankakee-Iroquois-Ford Association of Realtors® Latest to Join

LISLE, IL--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2012) - Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED), the Chicagoland multiple listing service (MLS), is pleased to announce that they will soon be providing multiple listing services to the members of the Kankakee-Iroquois-Ford Association of Realtors® (KIFAR). KIFAR becomes the twelfth Realtor® organization to be included under the MRED umbrella.

"The Kankakee-Iroquois-Ford Association of Realtors® looks forward to being a part of MRED," said Connie Legris, Executive Officer of KIFAR. "Many of our members have been purchasing services outside of our current MLS system. They are very impressed with the programs available to them as part of the overall MRED technology package. We look forward to working with a company that is constantly looking for ways to bring the latest technology to our members, helping them to better serve their clients."

MRED is a great fit for any Realtor® organizations in the Midwest. Due to its size, progressive and effective leadership, and cutting edge business planning, MRED has established itself as one of the flagship MLSs in the country. MRED provides the very best in state-of-the-art products and services available to its customers. By leveraging its size to take advantage of economies of scale MRED is able to provide real estate tools to its customers at a much lower cost than smaller organizations trying to operate their own MLS.

"MRED's Board of Managers is thrilled to have another Realtor® Association join us," said MRED President Rob Schaid, broker/owner of the RE/MAX Plaza Group. "MRED leadership continues to look for more opportunities to expand our service area which ultimately will benefit any new organization as well as MRED. We have already received inquiries from throughout the state and hope to capitalize on those opportunities."

"We could not be more pleased to welcome the Kankakee-Iroquois-Ford Association of Realtors® and its members to the MRED family," said MRED CEO Russ Bergeron. "KIFAR is a great fit with our existing Associations and we are confident their members will be very pleased with their decision and affiliation with MRED."
