COMING SOON: CRMLS will launch Perchwell in Q1 2023 

CRMLS has partnered with Perchwell, the company behind the premier data and workflow technology platform of the same name. We have completed an agreement to bring Perchwell’s flagship MLS platform (which includes both a front-end and back-end system) to CRMLS users, targeting a launch by the first quarter of 2023. 

Perchwell is designed to optimize the user’s experience from the moment they sign in. With listing results on the first screen, Perchwell filters searches so users don’t need to rearrange their search criteria to fit fields first. See a sample screenshot below, and click here to read the full press release.

COMING SOON: Innovation in showing choice in 2023

When you speak, we listen. Taking user feedback into account when creating new and innovative services is what CRMLS prides itself on. That’s why we’re proud to announce an innovative method to provide you a choice in showing platforms. 

In partnership with BrightMLS and MRED, CRMLS is creating a tool for showing service vendors to interoperate, freeing users to choose which showing service works best for their business. That means no more complicated and time-consuming processes when scheduling appointments across services. Users can seamlessly schedule appointments with other participating showing service vendors!

Greater showing choice aims to help real estate professionals, their clients, and the industry itself by creating more options for brokers while maintaining the highest degree of data integrity.

General release of this showing choice innovation will happen in the first half of 2023. More details about this initiative will be coming in the next couple of months.

Share the CRMLS Compliance Quiz with your office

CRMLS Compliance Quiz

We recently launched a new CRMLS Compliance Quiz:

Take the quiz

The quiz is short, optional, and anonymous. It will be helpful in educating agents about common rules violations, saving you time, money, and stress. We encourage you to share it with your office. We want them to learn common rules and pitfalls here, not through a violation notice.


Important Broker Resources

Brokers and managers can jump ahead of the wait time for MLS assistance by calling our Broker Support Line at 909-859-2043.
Please note, you must identify yourself by your broker or broker/office assistant MLS ID, as not all user classes have access to this service. For a list of MLS user classes that can access the Broker Helpline, see the last column of our User Classes document.

How to work with listing cancellation restrictions in Paragon

As of May 25, 2021, a rule restricts canceling a listing to Office Managers and Brokers only. Find instructions to cancel a listing in our Knowledgebase.

You can also use the Assume Identity feature to accomplish this. Brokers can designate office admin or staff to assume identity. Assume Identity is a way for you as an agent or broker to allow a licensed or unlicensed assistant to log into CRMLS Paragon under their own unique login and then “Assume the Identity” of the agent or broker they are working for.

Under your login, only you can manipulate your listings. When your assistant logs into Paragon and assumes your identity, there will be a “paper trail” that shows the assistant is logged in under their unique username and password. The “paper trail” will show that, with your permission, the assistant has assumed your identity and made changes to your listings.

Brokers/agents/assistants must belong to the same office and Association/Board of REALTORS® to assume IDs. View our step-by-step guide to give permission to Assume your Identity.

Here is a guide to issues that have been recently resolved and are currently in progress:

  • IN PROGRESS: We’re working to ensure Coming Soon to Active shows as New (with vendor).
  • IN PROGRESS: Addition of a Change Type for Coming Soon so that it can have its own category on Hotsheets and MarketWatch (with vendor).
  • IN PROGRESS: Cleanup of City List (being finalized).
