NAGLREP Signs Partnership Deal with Rismedia
The National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP) announced a media partnership deal with Rismedia, a nationally recognized leader in real estate media.

Under the agreement, NAGLREP will author thought leadership commentaries about the LGBT community and offer business development tips on how agents can better work with LGBT's.

"This is the next step in NAGLREP's evolution and Rismedia is an excellent media partner to get information out about the LGBT segment of home buyers and sellers to the greater agent community. We're thrilled about this new partnership," said Jeff Berger, NAGLREP Founder.

"The LGBT community represents an important and extremely viable segment of the overall marketplace, and to our society as a whole. Rismedia is proud to be associated with NAGLREP and we look forward to helping the organization through providing a robust forum and platform to discuss strategy, business building tips, as well as to voice commentaries that will benefit members of the organization and the entire real estate community," said Rismedia CEO John Featherston.

As part of the partnership, NAGLREP will promote Rismedia's RSS news stream on its site, participate in the Rismedia CEO Exchange and the annual Power Broker dinner that coincides with the NAR Annual Conference and exchange partner branding in social media and all marketing channels.
