An industry movement for rural real estate professionals to join together to combat steep increases in digital advertising prices, losses of privacy and control of data.
Take control of listing data and advertising cost as an equal owner.
Maintain the current operational structure enjoyed by the rural real estate industry.
Benefit from group buying power with numerous discounts.
Share in any profits in the form of dividends.
The Co-op was formed to create an avenue for rural real estate professionals to join forces and mutually enjoy benefits normally offered to larger organizations, while also working to regulate technological changes in a manner that maintains listings data integrity and ownership.
The historical protocol of direct broker/agent to buyer/seller relationships is critical to the mission of the Co-op, without such relationships being intercepted, tolled and re-distributed by technologists.
The Co-op is wholly-owned by real estate professionals, offering equal ownership and voting rights to all Members and shared participation in profits. In 2018 the Co-op distributed over $10,000 in dividends to its Member-Owners.
Co-op Membership is limited to individuals that are licensed real estate brokers, agents or appraisers
in good standing in accordance with the applicable laws of their state of residence or licensure.
