RMLS™ is pleased to debut RMLS™ Mobile, the app for RMLS™ subscribers now available for both iPhone and Android phones. This app is the portable solution for agents in the field who want to access up-to-the-minute listing information.
RMLS™ Mobile offers subscribers access to listings, photos, showing information, days on market information—all listing information available on RMLSweb! Using the app, REALTORS® may call or email the seller’s broker immediately and even text listings to clients.
Searching for nearby listings is a snap with RMLS™ Mobile—the app uses location data to target the neighborhood where the device is located. Listings may be shown in either list view (above) or map view (below).
Download RMLS™ Mobile today on the Apple App Store or Google Play! The app will be updated frequently to add new features, fix bugs, and improve performance, so you’ll want to update the app whenever a new version is released.
RMLS™ Mobile is exclusively for RMLS™ subscribers. It was built in response to feedback from subscribers, co-developed with Utah Real Estate as part of MLS Aligned.
RMLS™ will soon be making a few changes to the menu bar on RMLSweb, making the site function better for mobile users. Subscribers should see the new look and feel as early as Tuesday, November 15th.
The new menu bar design on RMLSweb will be device-responsive—subscribers using mobile devices (and desktop users who decrease their browser width) will see the menu as icon on the left side of the page.
Touching the icon will expand the menu, at which point a user can then select the desired menu item from the stacked list.
Specific menu items won’t change, with one minor exception. The user name will be moved from above and made a menu item itself, under which subscribers can shortcut to User Preferences or log off.
RMLS™ knows how many real estate professionals access RMLSweb using their mobile device in the field. We’re happy to bring a feature to the site that should make this field access run more smoothly.
Questions? Subscribers can always contact the RMLS™ Help Desk at (503) 872-8002 or (877) 256-2169 about this or any other technical needs.
RMLSweb Mobile will be getting a little friendlier this week!
On the evening of May 22nd, RMLS™ staff will be enhancing the mobile site—adding the most requested capabilities in Listing Load and introducing interface changes designed to make the site easier for tablet users.
Listing Load will soon be accessible via the main page, and users will be able to make some changes to their listings using the site. Subscribers will be able to change the status of a listing, the price, and expiration date.
Changes to the interface will include enlarging the size of text and on-screen buttons.
Office staff will also be allowed to access the mobile site after this update. To better secure RMLSweb, this will require those staff members (personal assistants, input staff, and office managers) to agree to new Terms of Service when they log in for the first time after the changes are made. (See a redlined version of the new RMLSweb Terms of Service for office staff.)
RMLS™ knows there many subscribers rely upon their tablets and smartphones for business. We hope these updates will be helpful, as we continue working on our RMLSweb browser and tablet compatibility project this year.

Although June is not Realtor® Safety Month (September is!), it’s important to keep up-to-date with any safety resources that become newly available, whether it’s “Safety Month” or not.
