JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Black Knight Financial Services (NYSE: BKFS) announced today the execution of an agreement with the California Regional MLS (CRMLS) to deliver its Paragon MLS system to CRMLS’ more than 75,000 members.
With the addition of Paragon MLS, CRMLS strengthens its position as a leader in the real estate industry and demonstrates its commitment to its professional members who rely on fast and easy access to MLS information. Offering intuitive and straightforward navigation, cross-browser compatibility and multi-tasking capabilities – all of which are mobile-optimized, Paragon MLS will enable CRMLS subscribers to increase productivity and grow their business.
CRMLS has been steadily expanding its presence in California, now serving 35 local real estate associations, three boards of REALTORS® and one multiple listing service (MLS). In August 2015, CRMLS won Inman’s Most Innovative MLS award. Black Knight’s Paragon MLS system has received top ranking in the annual Clareity Consulting MLS Customer Satisfaction Survey for the past three years, and recently was installed in numerous new markets for MLS organizations.
“It is time to break through the barrier of being limited to one MLS platform,” said CRMLS CEO Art Carter. “We have wanted to do this for some time, and we are pleased to form this partnership with the Black Knight Paragon team. Our industry is constantly evolving, and we need to be more responsive to agents, brokers and consumers who are redefining the way they work. The result of this project will give our members better choices as the vendors vie for user selection.”
“It is an honor to be selected for this CRMLS initiative,” said Rich Lull, managing director for Black Knight MLS. “We commend them for their vision and leadership, and look forward to working closely with CRMLS to continue providing leading-edge solutions as the industry evolves.”
