The web-based MLS application runs silently in the background and updates listings on real estate websites as quickly as every two hours.

Easy to browse search result pages with social sharing buttons.
The search results page can contain any defined group or category of listings, such as all listins from your brokerage, all listings in a certain neighborhood, real estate listings limited to specific price range, etc. RealConnect includes social media links that allow visitors to share your pages and listings on Facebook and Twitter. Every listing has a unique URL that can be used as long as the listing is active on the MLS.
Track your site traffic with Google Analytics reports.
When we use Google Analytics to monitor the traffic on your real estate website, you can see which listings were clicked on most, where your visitors are coming from and what pages on your site get the most action.
What is RealConnect?

Yes. Anybody with a computer connected to the internet can view the information on your website. Even on mobile devices.
Why will my customers like it?
RealConnect allows you to offer them more information than any other MLS tool out there. Unlimited pictures, virtual tours, brochures, special comments and more. Advanced Search lets them match any detail associated with the property, including a full-text search in the description field.
Why will I like it?
Your customers and prospects get to see all of the properties you want them to, sorted in any way that you like. They can easily share listings with friends and family.
How accurate is it?
We get the information straight from your MLS, so it’s as accurate as the information put into the MLS back-end by all of the Realtors in the MLS. New listings are added to your website every 2 hours.
Is it always online?
We offer a 99.99% uptime guarantee for RealConnect. Periodic maintenance is done outside of normal business hours and typically lasts less than a half an hour.
What do I need to do to keep it running?
Nothing at all. But, it is helpful for your search engine rankings to add content to your site, especially on pages that you can optimize to draw in people seeking specific types of listings in specific areas.
RealConnect is a robust MLS solution that embeds active listings in your website and puts you at the head of the class for real estate websites.
