Reciprocal Access Information

The Reciprocal Access Program allows our members access to premier Northern California Multiple Listing Services. You can search and post listings on the MLS boards participating in the Reciprocal Access Program. In turn, members of participating boards are able to search and post listings on MLS Listings. Participating guest boards allow you to search only.

Participating Boards include:

  • MetroList Services Inc. (MetroList®)
  • San Francisco Association of REALTORS® MLS (SFAR)
  • Bay Area Real Estate Information Services, Inc. (BAREIS MLS®)
  • Bay East Association of REALTORS® (Bay East)
  • Contra Costa Association of REALTORS® (CCAR)
  • East Bay Regional Data, Inc. (EBRDI)
  • California Regional Multiple Listing Service, Inc. (CRMLS®)

Participating Guest Boards include:

  • Combined LA / Westside MLS, Inc (CLAW)
  • San Diego County’s Regional Multiple Listing Service (SANDICOR®)

Each board covers a different region. Please visit our Coverage Area Maps page for information on which region each participating board covers.

Accessing a Reciprocal Board

Access to participating Reciprocal Boards is quick and easy. You can access each board directly from the Pro Homepage. On the left-side of the Pro Homepage is a section labeled Other MLS Systems. Simply click on the board that you want to access, then continue into that board. Please keep in mind that when accessing other boards, you are leaving MLS Listings and will be using a different MLS system. These boards may be set up differently than MLS Listings, but the basic concepts of what constitutes an MLS Board remains the same. You will be able to use the tools provided by the other MLS Boards

Tips for Working on Other Boards

Some boards have special requirements in order to use their system.

Paragon MLS

Currently, Paragon only works with Internet Explorer. If you are using a different browser, you will notice that Paragon does not appear to have many options. This is how their site has been designed. They may allow usage of other browser programs in the future.

Rapattoni Boards (MetroList, BAREIS, SFAR)

In order for your Assistant to access a Rapattoni board, you must grant access to their account. This is part of the security they have designed on their system.

As of March 2013, any new MetroList Assistants or new assistants joining MLSListings who would like access to MetroList must complete a full criminal background check. For more information please contact MetroList directly at 800-878-4166.

MLSListings California Edition

The MLSListings California Edition allows MLSL members the ability to search all participating Reciprocal

Access boards from one convenient search engine. The California Edition is modeled after the Pro Search platform, which many of our Agents have become familiar with over the years. It allows searching through Class 1 (Single Family Residential) and Class 2 (Townhouse/Condo) properties, which we hope to expand in the future. It also includes a useful Map Search feature that is invaluable when searching within specific neighborhoods.

When using the California Edition, please be aware that duplicate properties may appear in the results. Due to the Reciprocal Access program, Agents on participating boards also have the ability to list their properties on each MLS. Some Agents take the liberty of posting their listings on a few boards to get the most exposure.

To access the California Edition, simply click the MLSListings CA Edition button located on the left side of the Pro HomePage.
