Real Estate Questions

MLS stands for “Multiple Listing Service”. It is a suite of services that allows real estate brokers and agents to work together. The most well known aspect of the MLS is the database of properties that are for sale, pending, or have been sold; along with numerous points of information about each of those listings.
The vast majority of real estate agents and brokers use their area’s MLS to help them find listings, and information about those listings, that might appeal to their clients. Additionally, almost all home search functions found on the internet are populated with information from the MLS. Put simply, it is an invaluable tool to helping you get your home sold.

Outside Agents

Information on our listings can be found either in the MLS or under the "properties" link at the top of the page.
For property-specific questions you can either contact the owner if information is provided in the MLS report or you can submit a question by finding the property via the property link at the top of the page.
Yes. We require that our sellers agree to some level of buyer agent commission. However, the amount is up to the seller, so make sure and check the MLS for the amount.
