Use map based radius search for new listing emails

Today a new feature was launched providing REALTORS® the ability to set-up map-based radius search new listing emails for clients.

With this release REALTORS® are now presented with two options of setting up the new listing emails through the DeltaNet™. They can choose Market Based which is by market names such as County, Zip Code, City, School District, Neighbourhood  Subdivision, Lake Name, etc. Or, they can now choose Radius Based which is by an area on a map.
