Centralized Showing Service Announces Expansion Into Canada with the Appointment of Kerry Rakuson, National Account Executive

OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS (6/27/2017) – Centralized Showing Service, Inc. (CSS), the nation’s premier provider of real estate showing services, is pleased to announce the expansion of service into the Canadian real estate market with the appointment of real estate industry veteran Kerry Rakuson as National Account Executive.

Ms. Rakuson is dedicated to driving productive technology solutions for the real estate community. As the Executive Officer of Greater Moncton REALTORS® du Grand Moncton, she was instrumental at integrating systems to improve standards of service for brokers and agents. Her pragmatic approach to leadership helped foster a culture focused on continuous learning and professional growth.

"I am excited to join the CSS team and look forward to bringing Canada a new dynamic option for showing services. I decided to join CSS because of their innovative approach to this core real estate service. CSS is committed to delivering real value to salespeople, brokers and MLS systems which aligns with the values I have applied to the industry over the past 11 years,” Rakuson said.

"Kerry is a recognized leader with an enviable track record of improving the business processes of brokers and agents in Canada,” says Kevin Hughes, V.P. of Sales and Business Development for CSS. ”With Kerry leading our expansion efforts, we are ideally positioned to meet the evolving demands of the real estate industry. Our mission is to enable agents to efficiently exceed their sales goals,” he concludes.

Expanding into the Canadian marketplace is a welcomed opportunity for CSS and fits within the strategic direction of the company. With the focus on innovation and development, adding Canadian representation will make CSS a true North American solution for showing services.

Each showing appointment is a sales opportunity. Without an organized, streamlined and consistent approach to managing these appointments, many potential sales fall through the cracks. In 1996, brothers Bob and Kevin Faherty recognized this situation and developed a comprehensive system to serve the real estate community. For more than 20 years, CSS has focused on providing excellent personal service and online productivity tools for agents to easily book and manage showings. CSS has grown to 4 contact centers that schedule nearly 22 million showings each year, servicing more than 200,000 REALTOR® members in 90+ markets across the nation. In many markets, CSS service is provided by associations and MLSs as a member benefit to all their REALTORS®. Seventeen associations have integrated CSS Scheduler into their MLS enabling their agents to become more effective and productive. CSS is committed to helping REALTORS® efficiently manage their listings, save time and provide better service to their clients.
