IN YAHOO! REAL ESTATE'S NEW ONLINE LISTINGS
Westborough, MA - Prudential Prime Properties announced that it will participate in Yahoo! Real Estate's new, online property listings program. The agreement will enable Prudential Prime Properties to market their full catalog of property listings on Yahoo! Real Estate, and to capitalize on leading interactive marketing services.
"Technology has always differentiated Prudential Prime Properties and this enhances our online position and makes for a better experience for our customers," said Randy DeVries, Vice President, Prudential Prime Properties. "This helps to diversify our Web partnerships, maximize our search exposure and multiply functionality and services for our sales professionals."
Yahoo! Real Estate's online property listings program includes interactive marketing services such as featured home listings and display advertising.

Prudential Real Estate also will run strategically placed advertisements throughout Yahoo! Real Estate to attract even more home shoppers to its Online Advantage platform. Ads will be embedded within the Yahoo! Real Estate site, customized to shoppers' respective target markets.
Prudential Prime Properties will continue its Web ID program - the sign-rider code numbers buyers can key in to Yahoo! Real Estate for quick listing access.
