Technology has no doubt changed the way we live and interact with the world around us. Of course there are arguments about these changes being positive as well as arguments about the negative effects. But, taking the good with the bad – one undeniable fact is that technology gives you:
In the early stages of the Internet you had limited choices for email (remember that dial up AOL sound?), now you have Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc. Taking it a step further, you can choose to use programs like Apple Mail and Outlook – which provide a different interface than what you are given by Gmail, for example.
So why then, have real estate agents been given only one choice for searching for listings – the MLS?
It’s this lack of choice, which we find completely unacceptable, that lead to the inspiration and conception of Cloud MLX, which was officially released last week.
What is Cloud MLX?
Cloud MLX is an alternative front end for the MLS. It’s a seamless and modern way for agents to search for and share listings with clients.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the top features of Cloud MLX:
Imagine searching for listings in the same way you search for crockpot recipes on Pinterest. You start typing what you are thinking and the search bar suggests options to make searching easier and faster. With Cloud MLX you can search quickly and effortlessly with the smart search bar. All you have to do is start typing and hit enter to select the criteria. If you prefer to search by map, Cloud MLX also offers the ability to search specific areas on a map (similar to that of Cloud Streams). Plus you can save your map searches and they’ll become suggestions upon typing them into the search bar. The more you use Cloud MLX, the smarter the search bar becomes.
What if you could say “sayonara” to MLS spreadsheets? Well now you can. Cloud MLX makes sharing listings with clients easy. Simply start a search, save it, and then share that search with your clients by a unique link. To share specific properties with your clients, simply assign them to a specific hashtag that can also be shared with a unique link. Plus, since Cloud MLX serves as a ‘hub’ for Cloud CMA and Cloud Streams, you can easily send your clients a Cloud CMA report or set them up with listing alerts on Cloud Streams all in one place.
- Easy Onboarding.
Imagine if you could start searching the MLS the same day you get your MLS credentials. Forget about classes and training on the MLS system, Cloud MLX’s interface is easy to use and provides a similar search experience that you are already accustomed to.
So there you have it – Cloud MLX! Cloud MLX is now the third W+R Studios product that will be added to the upcoming Cloud Agent Suite (Cloud CMA, Cloud Streams, and Cloud MLX). Stay tuned for more information about Cloud MLX and the Cloud Agent Suite!
