California Regional MLS (CRMLS) and bridgeMLS, serving REALTORS® in the Northern California/Bay Area region, have agreed to begin sharing listing data.
Once the agreement is fully in place, CRMLS and bridgeMLS users will share listing data directly, giving users of either MLS the ability to view listing data from the other MLS in their own MLS system. CRMLS users will soon have access to bridgeMLS data, and users of bridgeMLS – representing the Oakland/Berkeley Association of REALTORS® and the Delta Association of REALTORS® – will see CRMLS’s database of property listings throughout the state in their Paragon platform.
“This is a victory for real estate professionals and consumers,” said CRMLS Chair Tom Berge, Jr. “If you’re a professional helping someone buy or sell real estate, you’ll have a better picture of listing data throughout California than ever before. And if you’re a consumer, you’ll have peace of mind that your trusted advisor isn’t held back by regional barriers.”
“This agreement provides our real estate professionals the ability to access listing data from 34 additional Associations of REALTORS®, three Boards of REALTORS®, and one MLS throughout the state of California!” said DaVina Lara, CEO of bridgeMLS. “I am excited for our participants and subscribers as we continue to expand their data access and make it easier to navigate.”
The agreement between CRMLS and bridgeMLS is the second such agreement CRMLS has signed in the past month, having come to terms with High Desert MLS in April.
