About MLS Aligned, LLC
MLS Aligned, LLC was founded by 5 forward thinking multiple listing service organizations with the intent to collaborate and solve pain points in the real estate industry. Those organizations include ARMLS (serving Arizona), MetroMLS (serving Wisconsin), MLSListings (serving Silicon Valley and coastal California), Regional MLS (serving Oregon and Southwest Washington), and UtahRealEstate.com (serving Utah and Southern Idaho). MLS Aligned offers an API driven data
distribution tool that can distribute large amounts of data without the antiquated process of data replication. The organization also partners with its members on product offerings and services to better serve their more than 100,000 real estate professionals.
MLSs participating in MLS Aligned get the following benefits:
Your Rules, Your Way. MLSs keep their local rules with no requirements to adopt a unified rule set. MLSs have invested money and time into creating their rules, and they can continue to use the rules that work best for their local markets.
Stay in Control of Your Data. Data within the MLS Aligned platform remains under the control of MLSs, brokers, and agents, so that they can share with those they choose to work with, using easy to configure controls.
Avoid Data Replication and Gain Faster Speeds. Using the combined 150+ years of MLS and development experience across the MLS Aligned organization, the company developed a proprietary method to manage data without replication using extremely fast transfer speeds.
You Control Compliance. MLSs have worked hard to develop and train compliance departments based on their local rules. MLS Aligned allows MLSs to maintain complete control over their data compliance at all times. The data goes in, the MLS manages it, and the MLS makes the decision on enforcement.
No Large Upfront or Monthly Fees to Participate. We built the system with an “open source” philosophy so that others can join the platform in a cost-effective manner. The MLS Aligned founders have already built and paid for the initial infrastructure.
Sharing and Efficiency. The founding members have built an MLS software platform, a public records platform, a statistics platform, mobile applications, and other innovative products. We allow for the easy sharing of products on the platform to create efficiencies and cost-effective solutions.
