AN INNOVATIVE METHOD for area real estate agencies to advertise their listings to local and national customers premiered on the Internet at on November 1, 1998.™, designed, developed, and maintained by Richard A. (Dick) Johnson, owner of Arden Services, Kane, Pennsylvania, started online on October 20th and, by its formal launch, had three area agencies as participants. Combined, the participants display a total of 60 listings in McKean, Warren and Elk Counties.

Mr. Johnson, who was Executive Officer and Multiple Listing Service (MLS) Manager of the Chautauqua County Board of Realtors® Inc., in Jamestown, NY for four years, said, "I realized that my MLS experience combined with my Internet abilities put me in the perfect position to offer a valuable service to real estate agencies in this area. There are at least 5,000 residents in McKean and Warren counties alone with Internet access through our great local Internet Service Provider, Penncom, and perhaps thousands more with access through the national service providers. Tens of millions of other Internet users nationwide have direct access to such a Web site. Properties for sale in this area are not limited only to local residents. With industries such as FCI McKean, Kane Magnetics International, and Zippo, to name just a few who attract employees from anywhere in the country, a quick, local source of properties for sale from a variety of agencies is a vital service. It permits relocating employees to get a look at the area before they even come here, as well as permitting local residents to look for a new home regardless of the weather."

In addition to residential properties, multi-family, commercial, retail and investment properties are available for review as well. Charter participants in the service are Century 21 Katy Real Estate in Kane, Penn Laurel Realty in Bradford and Rocking Horse Realty in Smethport. Communities represented today include Kane, Bradford, Smethport, Warren, Marshburg, Mt. Jewett, Mt. Alton, Lewis Run, Duke Center, Russell, Rixford and Wilcox.
