We’re excited to welcome Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors and Greater Antelope Valley Association of Realtors into the FBS family! Formal release below.

Two more Associations select the Flexmls system highlighting powerful Mobile suite, system capabilities and personal service as major decision factors.

October 8, 2014 – Flexmls® welcomes 2 new clients into the FBS family: Greater Antelope Valley Association of REALTORS and Greater Chattanooga Association of REALTORS. The addition of these Associations, adds nearly 3800 new Users to the fast growing Flexmls system. While both had individual reasons for changing systems, there were definite similarities around selecting Flexmls.

Greater Antelope Valley Association of REALTORS headquartered in Palmdale, CA with 2300 members, will be converting from the Rapattoni MLS system to Flexmls. Citing “leading edge technology” as the overarching reason for the shift to Flexmls, CEO Pamela JS Vose stated, “Although major change is often tough on members, ours are truly looking forward to this change and the benefits they will receive through Flexmls including the exceptional search and mapping capabilities, availability of statistical reports, user simplicity and the exceptional value of Flexmls mobile.” Vose also mentions positive feedback from other Associations as important: “We spoke with other Association executives also using Flexmls and they told us about the outstanding customer service they receive. It was refreshing to hear, because personal service has become somewhat of a lost art in our society. Knowing that we will receive great service and support through the transition along with the leading technology and flexibility that empowers Admins to make changes on the fly that Flexmls provides has us all looking ahead with excitement”.

Greater Chattanooga Association of REALTORS, headquartered in Chattanooga TN with nearly 1500 subscribers, will be converting from Solid Earth’s List it system. President Vickie Trapp said, “We wanted a partner with technology that stays ahead of growing industry demands. Specifically, we were looking for a powerful mobile application, new mapping features, expanded search fields and modern marketing tools. Flexmls was able to accommodate all of our wish list and then some while ensuring the kind of personal service and support we desired”. Byron Kelly, MLS President, cited Flexmls system flexibility, user- scalability and the feedback of industry peers as important factors as well. “Flexmls is simple for the less seasoned Realtor but full of bells and whistles for the more veteran agents diving into the system while allowing us the control we need at the Admin level to make necessary changes on the fly. When we spoke to industry peers about MLS system providers, we realized it was time for a change. We’re looking forward to more of the pride of ownership level of service we’ve experienced so far and, the positive shift to Flexmls technology in our conversion”, said Kelly.

Flexmls VP of Sales Dave Rifkin and, Senior Account Manager, Matt Epstein both share that excitement. Epstein stated, “I’m excited about welcoming Greater Chattanooga and Greater Antelope Valley Associations into the FBS family. Both of these Associations and their teams value Flexmls technology and, the very personal service we provide as an employee-owned company.
