Progressive broker organizations around North America have partnered with Immobel to provide an opportunity for their agents to market their properties globally and attract buyers that speak in over 25 languages.  Since top producers that focus on the International market generate 50% more revenue than those that don’t, many brokers are very interested in global marketing expansion now.

In addition to the broker products, the company also offers an agent self-serve product.
