Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt


My thanks to RentSpree for sponsoring this month of Vendor Alley. I think real estate agents need to look at serving their customers thru the lens of “housing”, not just for purchase but both long-term and short-term rental. RentSpree does a great job of helping agents make this transition. Having other means of income will help agents survive in any market.

My thanks again to RentSpree.

RentSpree partners with SentriLock

“Integrating RentSpree’s online standard rental application and screening platform with SentriLock’s property access management functionality enables both companies to marry important elements in the often fragmented leasing process and helps to empower and support agents as a result.

We are very deliberate in the partnerships we form, aligning ourselves with best-in-class organizations that can truly help add value to the services we provide to our rental customers,” said Lauren Martin, RentSpree Sales Director. “SentriLock is the top player in the space they serve, and our partnership will deliver to anyone in the rental process a much more seamless experience. We are truly excited about this collaboration.”

Make sense. Love the focus of the team at RentSpree. It’s not easy to maintain but they have it.

The MLS™ first to add RentSpree’s “ApplyLink” integration.

RentSpree and The MLS™ Bring New Rental Technology to Los Angeles Agents

“The new integration with VESTAPLUS™, The MLS™’s proprietary software for agents, utilizes RentSpree’s innovative API to generate an “ApplyLink” for rental listings. All agents can view and share the ApplyLink, creating the first ever standard rental process for all agents across Greater Los Angeles and Malibu.”

The MLS™/CLAW is the first MLS in California to implement the integration with the RentSpree API, providing access to RentSpree’s robust rental software to over 18,000 agents.

Pretty cool. Anytime you make your software easier and more useful for real estate agents to use is a big win.
