REALTOR.ca adds personal accounts – more features and security

realtorREALTOR.ca introduced one of its most significant features: REALTOR.ca accounts.

Also included in this release is a security change making REALTOR.ca safer for all users. As of December 3, all of REALTOR.ca is behind a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) which will encrypt and protect all user data through property and REALTOR® searches as well as the new accounts feature.

REALTOR.ca account benefits include:

  • Access your Favourites from anywhere
    Account users will be able to see their favourite listings from any browser they use to sign in to REALTOR.ca
  • Add Notes to listings to remember the things you love most
    Account users will have an option to add notes to listings and the ability to share their notes with family, friends and REALTORS®. Recipients will see the notes when they are signed in to their REALTOR.ca account.
  • Save time with Saved Searches
    Increasing the number of saved searches from 5 to 50 allows signed-in users to spend less time entering search criteria and more time interacting with REALTOR® profiles and listings.
  • Personalized experience
    Map or Gallery view? Metric or imperial measurements? Each signed-in user will be able to personalize their experience to make it work for them, so they can focus on what matters most – REALTORS® and their listings.

What you need to know:

  • While an account creation will be promoted and encouraged, REALTOR.ca will continue welcoming all guest visitors to use the site as they always have.
  • REALTOR.ca accounts are free.
  • Users will be able to create accounts and sign in using their email address or social media (LinkedIn, Google, Twitter and Facebook).
  • There will be no change to the data upload process.
