Get Ready…a New Reverse Prospecting Is Coming to RMLSweb!


RMLS™ subscribers, get ready—RMLS™ is putting the finishing touches on a new reverse prospecting tool! We plan to premiere the new system the morning of Thursday, July 16th.

What should you expect? Here’s a preview:

New RMLSweb Reverse Prospecting ScreenshotMap Capability

Need to find buyers specifically looking in your geographical area? Reverse prospecting will now feature map capability, meaning REALTORS® can connect with agents who have clients looking in the specific area where your listing is situated. Net result? A more effective search!

NOTE: Agents using auto-fill to populate information from a ML# in Reverse Prospecting, take note: the map pin will be placed where it was entered in Listing Load. It can be adjusted in this new Reverse Prospecting interface, but it’s always good practice to verify the map point of your listing in Listing Load!

If the map isn’t useful to you, minimize it by clicking “Map Point Selection Map” above the upper left corner of the map window. This will give you easy access to the other search fields that appear below the map.

Saved Searches

Just like our other search options, users will now be able to save searches in reverse prospecting. These saved searches can be accessed via tabs at the top of the screen.

A Refreshed Look

The current RMLSweb reverse prospecting system is a bit dated, and we’ve been working to bring a consistent look and feel to the site as a whole. You’ll notice a big difference in the visual design of the reverse prospecting system as soon as we roll it out.

Don’t forget, if you find yourself with questions as you navigate around the new system, the RMLS™ Help Desk is available to assist you via telephone [(503) 872-8002 or (877) 256-2169], email, or by chatting directly from RMLSweb.

    This is a great idea.

    I am sure you are working on this but I am curious to know if you have a plan to increase the notification speed? It seems the 3rd party sites are beating us to the notifcation to our clients. Thanks,

    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for the comment. email notifications of new prospect matches to subscribers such as yourself are immediate 24/7. As for your clients who are set up on auto-email, those go out every two hours between the hours of 7AM and 9PM. they go out every four hours outside of that time frame.

      I should also add that the every two hour time frame was determined by our board of directors. they didn’t want our site to compete with brokerage sites that may be sending out matches more frequently. If you are looking for an option to send matches more frequent that every two hours, there are products such as Cloud Streams ( or Homequest that offer that service. I have also heard that some IDX providers will do that for you as well.

    I would like to see the prospect auto mailer fixed so it doesn’t send 6 emails to client every day. I have clients that just want to get one email per week. At this point I can only restrict the emails down to one day, but with broad search criteria clients still get anywhere from 1-6 emails on that day. This seems like a simple thing to fix.

    For the new reverse prospecting I cannot change the zip code. Is there going to be a button for entering zip code just as there is area list?
