Happy Holidays: Our Gift to You - 2 Month Fee Waiver

This marks the eighth and largest fee waiver we’ve ever been able to offer our membership.
Important! – Auto-Prospecting Listing Alert Change Will Affect What Your Clients Receive
New auto-prospecting email and options are scheduled to go live Tuesday, November 8. You definitely want to read this, because some new options will affect what alerts you and your client receive.
You will have the ability to control which updates your client receives and which updates you receive independently. You and your clients will always receive new listings that match your search criteria, but price changes, status changes, and price & status changes for rejected listings are all disabled by default.
If you want to enable alerts for price and status changes, you will need to mark the appropriate boxes when entering a new client or modifying an existing one. You may also set the default for this by going to the Admin menu and selecting Modify Your Profile.

New Interactive Map Search
Rapattoni released a new Interactive Map Search last Thursday. With the Interactive Map you will never get stuck zooming out on the map when you are simply trying to scroll down the page. Everything you need is on the screen with zero scrolling. Other features include:
• Ability to include and exclude shapes.
• Revise shapes.
• Saved Map searches now sync between the Rapattoni desktop site and the BAREIS Edge app.
• Real-time listing results.
• Ability to select listings directly from the map for further functions, such as CMA, Reports, Email, etc.
While the old Map Search is no longer available for searching, rest assured that your old saved map searches will continue to function while Rapattoni works to fully switch to Google Map technology.
