Dear Fellow Real Estate Agents,

After careful consideration, as of today we are no longer taking the REBNY RLS feed.

This means that most of your listings will be removed from Leasebreak today.

But here’s the good news for agents:  We send 50,000 free leads to agents annually. Most of those leads are now up for grabs! Yes, you can still get free leads! More on that below.  

Leasebreak was one of the first 3 websites to start taking the RLS feed in 2017. We enthusiastically embraced the concept of doing our part to help agents find alternatives to StreetEasy by offering free postings and free leads to agents.

Unfortunately, as I hinted at in my last email here, we felt we could no longer take the RLS feed once REBNY made the surprising decision to start charging websites to show your listings.

For those who have been following me for the last few years you know my goal was simple:

Help agents get as many free leads as possible from alternative sources (like Leasebreak) to help level the playing field against StreetEasy.

And I still want that to happen.

Do you? If so, here’s what you can do:

Any agent can manually post their exclusive listings on our website by clicking here.  Posting will of course be FREE and all leads will go to agents for FREE  

For those who still want their listings to be posted automatically on our website, have your manager get in touch with me.  There are many other feed options we can offer.

While REBNY and Leasebreak are parting ways for now, perhaps we can work together again in the future. We may have our differences on the correct path to follow, but ultimately I believe we both want agents to succeed.

Please feel free to reach out directly to me with any additional thoughts.  Look forward to hearing from you!

And remember, you can start immediately posting your exclusive listings for free on Leasebreak by clicking here.  Many of you already post this way.

For those that want to get more exclusives, don’t forget Leasebreak also offers agents the opportunity to obtain rental listing exclusives by working with tenants and individual owners.  You can sign up and try this out for free by clicking here.

As always, Leasebreak will be here for you and support you in any way we can 🙂
