Celebrate 25 Years of RMLS™ with a Video and Contest! (Updated December 22nd)



Did you know that 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of RMLS™?

RMLS™ staff members have been visiting association meetings this year to deliver thank yous and anniversary-themed goodies, as our partners around the region have been absolutely vital to the success of RMLS™ since 1991.

Attendees of both the RMLS™ Spring Education Summit and Trade Fair in Portland and the RMLS™ Fall Trade Fair in Pendleton enjoyed an anniversary-themed event, complete with balloons and cupcakes. RMLS™ would not be the member-driven multiple listing service it is today without the passion and involvement of our subscribers!

Perhaps you enjoyed our anniversary-related blog posts or noticed the anniversary logo this year on RMLSweb or elsewhere online.

Now it’s time to close out the year with a bang!

First, we’re pleased to present a video about RMLS™…

Help RMLS™ celebrate by showing the video in your office meeting—perhaps your principal broker can remember the days of listing books or the STELLAR system. You may even share the video with clients to explain the role RMLS™ plays in their property transaction! A shorter (1:19) version of the video is available here.


RMLS™ will close out this silver anniversary with a month of giveaways. We’ll be giving away 25 prizes in December, one for each year RMLS™ has been serving REALTORS® in the Pacific northwest.

Each week in December, we’ll spotlight a couple of RMLS™ departments who will choose a couple of lucky subscribers to receive a $50 gift card from Amazon, Home Depot, or Best Buy. If you’ve had an interaction with the RMLS™ Help Desk, Account Services, Training, Data Accuracy, Distribution Services, or the Front Desk in 2016, you’ll be automatically entered for these giveaways.

We have more to give away! Tell us how RMLS™ has impacted your real estate career in an email to communications@rmls.com—and you’ll be entered to win a cookie basket to share with your office or an iPad Air 2!

    Yes, I remember the big thick listing books from back in the day! It was our book of wealth. Now RMLS has come so far, but one thing remains the same, they are our book of wealth. My absolute favorite is our PROSPECTING tool, that works 24/7 searching properties for our clients.

    Happy Silver Anniversary RMLS! My first job at 14 was to take care of my father’s multiple books, removing the expired, solds, adding the new pages and keeping them fully up to date. That goes back quite awhile and I love the new technology! Thanks RMLS!
