Mobile Options to Help Agents Work on the Go


The NJMLS provides several mobile options, each designed for “on the go” solutions:
 
  • NJMLS Mobile View:  Designed to work on your mobile device, the NJMLS Mobile View allows members to work within the system in real time. There is no app required to use the Mobile View; login to XL Paragon on your mobile device and you will be prompted to choose this option. The work you do in the Mobile View will update automatically in XL Paragon. Currently, features available in this view include Quick Search (by MLS #, Address, Name), View Hotsheets and Watch List Alerts, Search Tools (Near Me, Property, Hotsheets, Tour/Open House, Cloud CMA, Roster), Listing Maintenance (view your listings, make price changes, extend expiration dates, add Tour/Open House dates), view Reports, get Alerts, access Contacts, Communication Logs, and more.

  • NJMLS App:  Agents can easily access listing information on the go, search for listings based on geographic location, MLS #, Address, City or Zip Code. Members may also view tax data, Realtor Tours, Showing Instructions, and more. The consumer version of the NJMLS app provides the public view of NJMLS listings and can be used to generate leads back to agents. Members with IDX service can share a branded version of the app with clients.

  • Homesnap PRO:  This platform provides information on any home, whether or not it is for sale, such as value, last list date and price, listing history, lot boundaries, etc., and combines that with MLS listing data. The NJMLS provides the Homesnap Pro App as a free, value-added service to our members. It provides NJMLS listing and property information to agents on the go, allowing you to research homes, contact other agents, and communicate with clients. Agents can also share the app and work in collaboration with their existing clients, as well as receive leads from consumers searching the public version.

Cloud CMA Update


Some updates have been made in the Cloud CMA program to enhance the reports you create using this tool:

  • Agent Branding has been added to the bottom of each report page, including your photo, name, company name, and contact information. Please note that you will need to complete this information on your Cloud CMA Profile page in order for it to display on your reports.

  • In addition to the NJMLS Member Benefits flyer already included as part of the report package, a new advertising flyer has been added that describes the advertising coverage listings in the NJMLS receive.

  • The maximum character limit has been increased for the “Remarks” in all 5 flyer options

What’s New in XL Paragon


Do you know about our recent features and enhancements? Here’s what was recently released in XL Paragon:

Homesnap Pro
The NJMLS provides the Homesnap Pro App as a free, value-added service to our members. Homesnap Pro provides information on any home (whether on the market or not) such as value, last sale date and price, listing history, lot boundaries, and more, and combines this with MLS listing data, giving members access to listing and property information on the go. Agents can share the app and work in collaboration with their existing clients, as well as receive new leads from consumers searching the public version. If you didn’t have the opportunity to take an informational webinar when we released this integration, you will find a pre-recorded one in XL Paragon > Toolkit > Training Videos.

Text Messaging Listings
Agents may now send Customer Reports to their clients via Text Message. When you select any of the Mobile Customer Report options from the drop-down menu (an * asterisk appears in the name) and choose Go or Email, this choice displays. The Sent Email Log has been renamed Communication Logs, and is divided into two sections; one for listings that are emailed (Sent E-mail Log) and one for listings that are sent via text (Text Message Log).

Email Associated Documents
The option to email Associated Documents that are set as viewable by the listing agent is now available by choosing the new report called Customer With Documents from the drop-down menu at the top of the one line search results page. At the bottom of the report, a new box displays where you may choose which standard Associated Documents to send (when those documents are available).

The email is automatically sent in a format that can be read in the mobile-friendly format and will feature a tab labeled Documents. Choose that tab to view the Associated Documents icons; all documents will be accessible by clicking there.

Changes to Showing Instructions
The Showing Instructions field has been modified to require listing agents to choose up to two ways that a showing agent may show a property. Additionally, a new field, Agent Remarks, has been added to allow listing agents to disclose additional comments that will only be viewable by other NJMLS Members. Links to more information can be added to this section and will be clickable on the Full Report.

Eliminate Relisted Properties
When viewing a Hotsheet, agents may now see which off-market properties have been relisted, and then remove those properties from their results by clicking Eliminate Relisted properties.

Email Alert for Sold Listings
Whenever a transaction closes, the listing and selling agents are emailed a confirmation to review and verify that all reported sold data is accurate. They have 30 days to report any changes.

Default Setting for Property Category in User Preferences
Agents may now choose a Property Category to set as a default by going to Toolkit > User Preferences > Section 3.
