April 5, 2019
Called a "groundbreaking collaboration," two real estate technology companies announced plans to integrate advanced functions that will enable members of Northwest Multiple Listing Service and brokers from more than 170 other MLS organizations to perform essential business functions with a single platform.
CoreLogic, a leading global property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider, and Homesnap, provider of the top-rated agent mobile productivity platform announced the agreement last month. The integrations will be provided to their customers and users at no additional charge.
In an announcement to its members. Northwest MLS said the integrations are expected to be available later this year. Once unveiled, MLS brokers will be able to perform many essential tasks using Homesnap on their mobile devices, including:
- Full synchronization of contacts, prospects, saved searches, and "favorites" between Matrix and Homesnap;
- The ability to edit a listing directly in Homesnap; and
- The ability to add a new listing into Matrix from Homesnap.
Homesnap officials said the new alliance represents the first time that CoreLogic has allowed these combined integrations directly into Matrix.
"Our clients have asked for integrated solutions that make the products they use more powerful and efficient. We are always trying to make Homesnap Pro an even better tool for agents, brokers and multiple listing organizations, and this relationship with CoreLogic was a natural step for us," said Homesnap CEO John Mazur. "CoreLogic provides one of the top software solutions for multiple listing organizations, and the integrations that we're developing together will be incredibly valuable for our mutual customers."
"The demand for Homesnap Pro was evident when it became one of our most rapidly adopted services ever. The upcoming integration with Matrix will ensure continued strong usage going forward," said Hurdelbrink, president and CEO of Northwest Multiple Listing Service.
Homesnap Pro is touted as the most popular agent productivity app on the market, currently available to an estimated one million agents in more than 170 multiple listing organizations across the country. It is also the public-facing brand of the Broker Public Portal, providing a real-time home search platform with multiple listing information to millions of consumers each month.
CoreLogic's combined data from public, contributory and proprietary sources includes over 4.5 billion records spanning more than 50 years, providing detailed coverage of property, mortgages and other encumbrances, consumer credit, tenancy, location, hazard risk and related performance information.
The companies expect the first phase of the integrations will be introduced by mid-year.
