SIMI VALLEY, Calif., May 8, 2019 – Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni) announced today that the Lynchburg Association of REALTORS® (Lynchburg), located in Virginia, has launched a new website using Rapattoni’s Integrated Website Service (IWS). The association currently serves more than 700 REALTORS® in the city of Lynchburg and the surrounding counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford and Campbell.
Powered by Rapattoni IWS, the new website (https://www.lynchburgvarealtors.com/) provides the public with integrated searches for listings, agents, and open houses, as well as an affiliate member directory, Code of Ethics information, links to local resources, and more.
The member section of the site also includes association news, forms, RPAC info, support and training resources, and links to log onto the Lynchburg MLS. Since Lynchburg also uses the Rapattoni MLS and Rapattoni Magic-Cloud AMS with Internet Member Services (IMS), the new website leverages seamless integration to serve as a central gateway for their members.
Rapattoni’s IWS content management system makes it easy for Lynchburg staff to post news updates and other content specifically for members or consumers. This dynamic content helps keep the site fresh and current in the fast-paced real estate market, and the website features a modern design optimized for mobile devices as well as desktop access.
Jim Martin, Chair IWS Task Force at Lynchburg, said, “Our new website is a powerful resource for connecting with our members as well as the community at large. With Rapattoni’s IWS product, we’ll be able to quickly deploy new services and content updates as they become available.”
Meredith Ford, MLS Administrator at Lynchburg, added, “Going live with our new IWS site at the same time as a major MLS update could have been a scary transition, but our members are benefiting from a fresh look and impressive user experience all around! We have had nothing but positive feedback rolling in here and an overwhelmingly positive response like this is a rare occurrence. Kudos to the entire team at Rapattoni IWS, MLS, and AMS!”
Brian Tepfer, Executive Vice President & Chief Technology Officer at Rapattoni, commented, “We’re thrilled to have Lynchburg up and running on IWS as well as the Rapattoni MLS and Cloud AMS. As their technology partner, we’ll continue working to empower the association and their members with the latest tools and technologies.”
