Ask Technical Terry is a series RMLS™ aims to offer once a month. RMLS™ subscribers will drive the content—submit any question about RMLS™ to Technical Terry in the comments or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t be shy—we won’t identify you by name.
I’m sure you’ve heard the stories about RMLS™ subscribers having to resort to using products from other brokerages to deliver new listings or changed listings to their clients in a timelier fashion. This seems contrary to the mission of RMLS™, is it not? Why do we not have tools available either within RMLSweb or within one of your approved third-party vendor integrations?
Frustrated in Fairview
I understand your frustration and concern. I do have some good news for you in this area. Remine recently added some new functionality to an already great product that should solve the issue you mention above regarding delivery of new / changed listings to your customers in a timelier way. Here are some details on that new set of functionalities:
Stay up to date on property updates through the Saved Search feature! When you save a search, you’ll receive email notifications when new properties meet your search criteria, or when property characteristics change, like MLS status or listing price. You can also automatically update your client on the newest properties that meet your Save Search criteria.
How to get started with Saved Searches?
The product feature formerly known as Track is now called “Carts.”
Carts enable agents to share specific properties or groups of properties with their clients and receive quick and easy feedback.
Previously, RMLS™ subscribers could maintain up to 100 properties with the Track feature, that number increases to 500 properties in Carts.
Consumer Portal Improvement
As a RMLS™ subscriber, you can create your own public-facing portal as a free lead capture system. To participate, you simply need to activate your Remine account and invite your contacts. The more invitations you send, the more visible you are to future clients.
You can invite unlimited contacts to your portal, to keep them tied to your business and the MLS.
Additional Enhancements from the recent Remine update:
- New User Interface: A cleaner, more modern and intuitive user interface is now available, on both the desktop and mobile applications.
- CMA 360: An improved CMA experience. Remine offers the only CMA in the industry that searches MLS and off-market comps.
- Property Details Page: Format and layout have been improved
- Tax Data: Tax data has been improved as well.
