MLSListings has launched another data share agreement that will connect your business to the East Bay through the MLSListings platform as your single point of entry. We’re excited to announce you now have access to data from all the East Bay MLSs: Bay East Association of REALTORS®, Contra Costa County Association of REALTORS, and East Bay Regional MLS (Oakland-Berkeley) – without having to connect to separate MLS platforms. And that’s just the beginning!
As we continue to evolve our data sharing arrangements, we’re working to bring increased seamless business benefits to you. Using Listing Management as your single point of entry, your listings will automatically distribute to all data share partners at the same time. We are also collaborating with our neighboring MLSs to bring in open house information in the future.
Additionally, you are now able to see all East Bay listings in Matrix and on mlslistings.com (search by city, address, or ML#). We’ve already moved approximately 1.2 million East Bay listings into our system and we’re adding new and updated listings into Matrix as they happen. This provides your CMA tools with all the information they need to give you the most accurate CMA possible.
This agreement marks a major turning point for our industry in California. We have moved beyond political barriers to creating client compatibility for the entire MLSListings Subscriber Community. As a result of this data share agreement, your listings have more exposure than ever before. This agreement brings your listings to more than 30,000 additional real estate professionals in northern California. And with the added 80,000 brokers and agents in our current data share with CRMLS of Southern California, more than 100,000 California real estate professionals can view your listings just as you now have access to their property listings for your clients.
MLSListings is on the way to having the largest data share network in California with more data shares still to come. The MLS of Los Angeles and the Palm Springs Association of REALTORS data shares will become effective in late summer.

Frequently Asked Questions:
When will open houses in the East Bay be available in Matrix?
We are in ongoing talks with the East Bay MLSs to continue to make our data share offering even better and more useful for your business. We hope to have to have an answer about open houses in the next few months.
When will tour data be available in Matrix?
Tour information comes from the associations. MLSListings makes that information available as a courtesy and a service to our Subscriber Community. We are having discussions with the East Bay to see what, if anything, may be done about tours in the future.
Will the IDX data feed I receive now automatically include the combined data?
In order to receive the combined data feed, please email email@example.com. You’ll only need to do this once. As we integrate additional MLSs, you’ll receive their data automatically.
I’m a broker and I do not want the combined feed. What should I do?
Please rest assured that your current feed will not change and there is no action you need to take. If you change your mind in the future and would like the combined feed, simply request it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll only need to do this once. As we integrate additional MLSs, you’ll receive their data automatically.
When will East Bay listings be available on mlslistings.com?
East Bay listing data is already available on dotcom if searching by city or address. We are also working on making it searchable by MLS number in the future.
