Every day we gather feedback about our products and services from your emails, calls to customer support, comments on articles, in-person meetings and more. And, we use that feedback to improve the offerings available to you and your businesses. Often times it turns into fixes and adjustments that are made very quickly, and other times the feedback is gathered for a larger update.

By reading feedback from you over the past few years, and carefully watching trends in the real estate industry we have identified several needs from you, our subscribers, that will help you to do your business faster and more efficiently.

  1. When My Listings was first created smartphones, tablets and other technologies that you use today did not exist.
  2. You are looking for easier ways to market your personal brand within the online consumer real estate community.
  3. Expanding expertise and relevance into statewide and national marketplaces is a must to assist with your client’s relocation and investment needs.
  4. Viewing and listing from a singular tool to accommodate the need for speed in today’s market.

These items led us to do some major updates to My Listings and Matrix. These updates will allow us to do the following long term:

  • Work with and implement a nationwise, REALTOR®-driven data structure that will allow you to view listings from multiple platforms in one place.
  • Enable the addition of regional statewide listing data in a single Matrix search platform.
  • Allow for compatibility of software with virtually any device available, including desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, etc.

As you know, we have been running a Beta program with the new systems for many months now. As part of the Beta program, we asked for your feedback about the new systems in our online Suggestion Box. Thank you for adding your suggestions and pointing out items for improvement. Many of those suggestions and improvements already have been implemented in the new systems.

Nov. 13, 2104 New Matrix officially available.
Nov. 13 – Dec. 8, 2014 Verification Period. Use this time to verify that your information is correct in new Matrix.
Dec. 9, 2014 New Matrix becomes your primary system. Old Matrix will be available for verification only.
Dec. 9, 2014 New My Listings comes online and becomes primary system to manage listings.
Jan. 31, 2015 Old Matrix is retired.

Throughout the entire rollout we will be communicating with you about what to expect and when. In addition, there will be some actions for you to take in the new systems. We will let you know what to do and when. All with the goal of preparing you so you have continuity in your business through the transition.

Now that you know why we are making changes, what they will enable for you, and when to expect these changes; we have created a guide designed to give you the information you need to hit the ground running when everything launches.

Yours Truly,

James Harrison, RCE, CAE
President and CEO
