CRMLS to launch Perchwell by Q1 2023
CRMLS has partnered with Perchwell, the company behind the premier data and workflow technology platform in residential real estate, and 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. The Perchwell platform simplifies day-to-day MLS workflows for real estate professionals. Perchwell also supports interoperability and integration among other industry technology products through its API. In contrast to the industry’s legacy offerings, Perchwell is an end-to-end workflow solution with web and mobile apps powering agents’ core workflows, including listing syndication, searching, analyzing the market, and collaborating with clients.
Among Perchwell’s standout features is the user’s experience from the moment they sign in. Perchwell presents users with listing results on the first screen, helping them filter their searches without needing to arrange their search criteria to fit fields first.

Share the CRMLS Compliance Quiz with your office
We recently launched a new CRMLS Compliance 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

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.
