What is this GPS platform?
- The GPS platform allows for our listings to be shown worldwide to real estate agents in hundreds of countries. The Keller Williams Global Property Specialist platform distributes our listing information to consumer real estate websites all around the world. This expands your ability to sell your home. This maximizes the opportunity to find qualified buyers. Our listings will be distributed across a network of over 80 publishers with coverage in Asia, Europe, North and South America.
- The GPS platform is run by Proxio Pro. Proxio Pro is just like the MLS systems that agents use in the United States, but this systems allows for our listings to advertised to over 500,000 agents in over 100 different countries. Also, a huge plus with this system is that it will translate the page into 19 different languages, including: Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Spanish, Hindi, French, German, Arabic, etc. This gives the ability for international agents to present our listings in their clients native language.
How does Listing Syndication Work?
When a listing is entered into the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) it is automatically entered into the Keller Williams Listing System or KWLS. KWLS is a proprietary system developed by Keller Williams that gives KW agents advantages over internet marketing for properties. This system sends listing data to over 850 of the most popular real estate websites in America. With the addition of GPS now KWLS sends listing information all over the world in multiple different languages which increase the ability to find a qualified buyer. Some of the international websites that the GPS sends to are listed below.
So why is it significant?
- This system opens up a whole new ball park for international buyers and sellers. Whether you are looking to buy a vacation home in Europe, or someone from Asia is looking to move to the states your home has a better chance of getting sold.
