Task Highlights: This year, the MLS Committee rolled out significant enhancements to its Business Services, including access to statewide public record data through Courthouse Retrieval Systems’ MLSTax Suite implementation. It also deployed a single-sign-on dashboard allowing access to various online services through a single login credential. The committee adopted rules to ensure compliance with NAR’s MLS Policy 8.0 or “clear cooperation policy.” The committee shored up much of its policy and definitions and added the new “Pending Continue to Show” status. A new mobile interface called Paragon Connect was introduced. Electronic Key and Lockbox rules were reviewed and revised, and a new Non-Member Access function was added to the key system permitting electronic lockboxes to be used like combination boxes. The association also began developing a RESO-Compliant regional data server project allowing GBRAR and partner associations to create aggregated MLS data.
