The Realtor and the MLS system
ONE Realtor is all you need!
In case you are thinking about working with several real estate agents to get a good overview about the market - there is no need to! Every agent has full access to the complete MLS database containing all listings of a certain region. As a great Realtor, I really listen to what details are important to you regarding the right property and incorporate your wishes into a custom tailored MLS search.
A real estate agent is a REALTOR® when he or she is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®. The term REALTOR® is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics. Founded in 1908, NAR has grown to more than 720,000 members. Members belong to one or more of some 1,700 local associations/boards and 54 state and territory associations of REALTORS®. They are pledged to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a suite of services that enables cooperating brokers to establish contractual offers of compensation with other participants, accumulates and disseminates information to enable appraisals, and is a great source of statistical information to better serve broker's clients, customers and the public.
A multiple listing service's database and software is used by real estate brokers and agents, representing sellers under a listing contract to widely share information about properties with other brokers who may wish to cooperate with a seller's broker in finding a buyer for the property.
The additional benefit of the MLS system is that an MLS subscriber may search the MLS system and retrieve information about all homes for sale by all participating brokers.
MLS systems contain hundreds of fields of information about the features of a property. These fields are determined by real estate professionals who are knowledgeable and experienced in that local marketplace. Whereas public real estate websites contain only a small subset of property data
The MLS CLIENT PORTAL is a great tool that allows you to monitor the real estate market in any neighborhood in Lee County.
