MRED is in competition with very large companies from across the country but has received strong support in its bid to be acknowledged as one of the best social media practitioners.

MRED LogoUseful Social Media is a company that produces business intelligence products designed to help big businesses make better use of social media. The company is best known for their Corporate Social Media Summits, which have taken place in New York, San Francisco and London.

The Useful Social Media Awards will be presented at their flag ship summit, which is taking place June 13- 14, 2012, in New York.

Useful Social Media will announce the shortlist of nominees on Wednesday, May 16.

“In regard to social media, we knew early on that our customer base was social by nature. Connecting and building relationships is the cornerstone to their business — we needed to be there with them,” said Chris Lambrou, MRED Director of Social Media Solutions. “We’re always trying to go beyond traditional means in providing world-class customer service. Our presence and use of social media is just an extension of that. For MRED, it is essential we maintain our high standards of customer satisfaction in the social media realm.”

“I am excited about the opportunity to be recognized as preeminent in delivering customer satisfaction,” said MRED CEO Russ Bergeron. “It is gratifying that our customers have been so supportive of us and continue to vote for MRED. While winning awards is great, I am even more proud of the acknowledgement that we are on the right track and are providing the support our real estate professionals need. I am proud of MRED staff and look forward to the receipt of many kudos acknowledging their great work in the future.”
