“We evaluated numerous tax vendors for several months and found that MMT’s product provides a variety of data and information and fulfills all of the requirements that were important to us,” said Eric Forsman, Florida Realtors® Vice President of Technology Services. “The auto-pop feature into the Ultimate Edition of Form Simplicity will improve members' overall efficiency helping to facilitate their transactions.

Our high quality Pensacola based staff audits and cleans the data in order to ensure the accuracy of data coming from multiple sources, often times providing useful notes as to the relationships between parcels not readily observable. Florida Realtors® members will also be able to take advantage of huge discounts off the regular retail price of the popular MMT SearchNet subscription based software in order to perform their own detailed searches and research,” added Stephan.
