Midwest MLS Giant Significantly Expands REALM Network Audience

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — (July 27, 2011) – The Real Estate and Living Media (REALM) Network, the online advertising service of the LPS Real Estate Group, announced today that Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED) has chosen REALM to operate its entire online advertising footprint, reaching both business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumers (B2C) audiences. Through this agreement, REALM will now be delivering highly targeted advertising to both real estate consumers and professionals across the entire spectrum of MRED online channels, including its MLS system and consumer-facing website.

“MRED is one of the largest MLSs in the country and is, without a doubt, the leader in providing real estate data to the Midwest market,” said Shiraz Vartanian, REALM’s general manager. “For REALM, this relationship represents a significant expansion of our network into the Chicagoland market for both B2B and B2C advertisers. On top of the large group of national advertisers who benefit from REALM’s highly targeted and motivated audience, we are also offering solutions for small and local businesses in the Chicago area looking to reach real estate consumers, including those who are moving, and real estate professionals.”

“Choosing REALM to operate our advertising footprint was unquestionably the right decision,” said MRED’s Chief Executive Officer, Russ Bergeron. “Advertising revenue allows us to continually improve the toolset we offer our members without their having to bear additional expense. As a division of the LPS Real Estate Group, the level of industry expertise REALM brings to the table is simply unmatched. We couldn’t be more excited about the future of this relationship.”

With the addition of MRED to REALM’s already extensive nationwide publisher network, the REALM’s reach now extends to more than 10 million users in the real estate category. The REALM’s ability to deliver a variety of real estate segments and audiences, as well as the creation of customized advertising products, brings marketers a unique way of delivering their messages to real estate professionals and consumers at the most appropriate time and in the most opportune positions.
