IRVINE, Calif., August 16, 2017—CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading global property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider, announced today it has unified the platforms of two multiple listing clients that recently merged to form a new organization called SmartMLS. SmartMLS uses Matrix™ by CoreLogic to serve 17,000 real estate professionals across all eight Connecticut counties, making it among the twenty largest multiple listing organizations in the nation. With more than 700,000 end users, Matrix is North America’s most popular multiple listing platform. The formation of SmartMLS involved the legal merger of the Connecticut Multiple Listing Service and the Greater Fairfield County Consolidated Multiple Listing Service, the unification of their databases and a conversion to the Matrix 7.0 platform. “CoreLogic has been with us every step of the way,” said SmartMLS co-CEO Kathy Elson. “When our two multiple listing organizations first got together to talk about a data share, CoreLogic was there to guide us. As our plans shifted from data share to a merger, CoreLogic remained flexible and put their best people on to make it happen for us. They pulled out all the stops for SmartMLS and I can say with full confidence that the creation of SmartMLS would not have been possible without CoreLogic.” “CoreLogic has been a phenomenal partner throughout our merger and conversion process,” said SmartMLS co-CEO Cameron Paine. “From our first conversations about what the merger might look like, their advice, willingness to meet our needs and execution on the project have been on point without exception.” Though the third smallest state, Connecticut has the highest per capita income in the United States and more than $13 billion in real estate transactions annually.

SmartMLS Hits the Ground Running

SmartMLS

WALLINGFORD, CT – SmartMLS, the Multiple Listing Service formed from the merger of The Connecticut Multiple Listing Service, Inc. (CTMLS), and the Greater Fairfield County CMLS (GFC CMLS), officially launched full, live operations to its members on August 1st, the company announced. SmartMLS represents over 17,000 real estate professionals and covers all eight Connecticut counties, making it among the top twenty largest MLSs in the country. Though the third smallest state, Connecticut has the highest per capita income in the United States, and boasts a massive $13 billion in real estate transactions annually. Led by co-CEOs Cameron Paine and Kathy Elson, SmartMLS is the product of merger discussions that began just seven months ago. It involved not only the physical merger of both MLS corporations and their back-end databases, products and services, but also a conversion to a new MLS system, CoreLogic’s Matrix 7 platform. “We committed ourselves to an aggressive timeline and we’ve been able to hit those benchmarks at every step along the way.” said co-CEO Kathy Elson, adding, “The speed in which this was all accomplished is a tremendous credit to our team, our Board of Directors and our vendors.  MMSI in particular, our membership management partner, had a huge role in making this happen for us.  They were tasked with handling the de-duplication of offices and members and combining of our member records.  We couldn’t have done it without them.” According to Co-CEO Cameron Paine, “It is generally accepted that the role of the MLS is to provide the most comprehensive, accurate, and timely data possible. However, many MLSs provide something far less than statewide data, which means they can only provide a fraction of a complete data set.  I’ll call this being a ‘Fractional MLS’.  The reason this merger came together so quickly is that we all recognized that being a Fractional MLS guarantees our irrelevance in the near future”. At launch, over 96 percent of the real estate professionals in Connecticut will be using MLS services provided by SmartMLS.  SmartMLS uses the new CoreLogic Matrix 7.0 platform, proudly endorses the Broker Public Portal and provides Homesnap as both the mobile app and public-facing portal for the MLS.  SmartMLS will introduce a new Membership Dashboard provided by MMSI and powered by Clareity’s SSO product. In addition, SmartMLS offers ShowingAssist, Realist, Instanet, and LisTrac products as part of the MLS subscribership. About SmartMLS The SmartMLS territory […]
