Check out the links, video and details below for the facts about the CRMLS Paragon upgrade. 

  • CRMLS subscriber's contacts and  saved searches will migrate over to the upgraded version of Paragon. 
  • Since the national data standard is different, some searches may need to be edited. 
  • CRMLS subscribers see the listing information from the 145,000 agents who share listings right through CRMLS. 
  • This upgrade provides agents with service from the biggest and most advanced MLS in the Country.

 

CRMLS is launching a major upgrade to the Paragon system on September 21st. You will get more photos, more listing distribution control, and more input on how your version of Paragon works.

  • NO LISTING INPUT or Add/edit Sept 17th until 8 am on Sept 21
  • Rules changes
  • Better, faster, more features

To help prepare you for the upgrade, CRMLS launched a Paragon Upgrade Resources page full of valuable information on the differences between the old and new systems.

Check out the San Diego Paragon Resources Center here.

While it already contains FAQs and a guide to critical rules differences between systems, it will be expanded to contain even more critical information and action items in the coming weeks.

Pro Tips: 

Other AOR's listing in San Diego: Agents around the state who use CRMLS Matrix will still be listing in San Diego during the upgrade.  Agents who list through CRMLS data-share partners will still be listing in San Diego. 

Absolutely Need to List?: PSAR also is a provider of Matrix for $6.50/month as a second MLS.  Matrix will be still active while the MLS is inactive.  This might be a good time to try it out.

See New Listings: While Paragon is being updated, tools like Homesnap-Pro will continue to be updated and searchable. Agents can see confidential remarks and search new listings from agents listing using systems other than Paragon.
