TEXAS, October 15, 2018 — The U.S. Land Broker Cooperative (the Co-Op) formally released its proprietary map-based web-search tool on www.landbrokermls.com. This new functionality was developed in conjunction with TerraStride Pro, which is the Co-Op’s preferred mapping partner. TerraStride Pro and Co-Op team members worked together to provide this cutting-edge software solution that powers a next generation, map-based property search view as a means to allow greater visibility and ease of use.
“Our industry-leading map-search functionality was developed in part due to growing enrollment in the Co-Op and the ever-changing needs and demands of the real estate industry,” says George Clift, Co-op member/owner.
The mapping solution was seamlessly integrated into www.landbrokermls.com, providing searchers with direct access to broker properties in a format that is intuitive, easily accessible and simple to use. The Co-Op’s philosophy of user experience over profitability allows the Co-Op to offer buyers and sellers an improved land shopping experience without commercial advertising, a feature that is sure to drive traffic to the website.
The Co-Op was created in 2018 by a group of professional farm, ranch and land brokers who recognized the changes taking place in the industry and the importance of an organization focused on serving the needs of the rural real estate brokerage community. These include reaching a target audience and providing member services on a cost-competitive basis while allowing protection of personal and professional data. The Co-Op is broker/agent-owned and offers equal voice to all members, group buying power, and shared participation in profits.
For those unsatisfied with a real estate advertising monopoly the Co-Op helps foster change, as every broker/agent who joins the Co-Op shares equal ownership and holds a unique voice. The Co-Op strives to combat steep rises in digital advertising prices, losses of privacy and control of data, and other factors which continue to increase costs for all participants in the rural real estate industry. The Co-Op’s philosophy of equal ownership and voice for all, without pricing smaller offices out of the market, is beneficial for everyone involved.
The Co-Op continues to be an industry leader not only with technology, but forward-thinking partnerships with the most influential brands and honest, hard-working members. The new map-based search functionality is the most recent result of the Co-Op’s management and founders’ agile and creative thinking processes.
