Agents and Brokers to gain first of its kind member benefits in new sharing agreement

Atlanta & Macon, Georgia January 15th, 2020 – First Multiple Listing Service (FMLS) and the Middle Georgia Multiple Listing Service (MGMLS) announced a new agreement today that benefits homebuyers, sellers and real estate professionals throughout the state of Georgia.

Under the partnership, property listings will be shared in the native MLS system throughout the expansive FMLS network as well as the middle Georgia network. This dramatically increases exposure throughout the state, which helps agents and brokers market and sell properties with more efficiency for potentially faster sales.

“This expands the market opportunity for both MLS’,” according to Jeremy Crawford, President and CEO of FMLS. “There’s a lot of movement between markets, and this makes the process much easier.” In addition, FMLS will extend new, state-of-the-art technology tools to MGMLS members, with products such as Cloud CMA, Showing Time, Down Payment Resource, and Remine Pro and Docs. “With nearly 46,000 members, we can purchase software much more affordably per user and extend that volume buying power to MGMLS’s members,” Crawford concludes.

Suzanne Beers, MGMLS’ Executive Director added, “We are very excited to have greater exposure to our listings in the greater Atlanta area and new technology choices. We will also be able to access the FMLS Training Institute, which provides high-quality and accredited real estate training as a free MGMLS member-benefit.” The FMLS Institute currently offers 33 of GREC’s mandated 36 hours of continuing education necessary to maintain a real estate license.

“As more consumers start their home buying and selling process online, this allows us to have better access to the latest real estate data in the most efficient technology and training tools. This opens the door to more referral business between brokers and agents, which helps everyone,” Beers continues.

The new agreement is effective today with many new products and services being rolled out in second quarter of 2020.
