LOS ANGELES, CA – November 19, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Real Estate Business Services® (REBS®), a subsidiary of the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.), today announced that Victor Valley Association of REALTORS®/Multiple Listing Service is now integrated with zipForm® 6 so its REALTOR® members can start the paperwork process from inside of the MLS. VVAR MLS is the first multiple listing service in California to offer this type of integration. zipForm® 6 is a free member benefit from C.A.R.
“The integration of MLS and zipForm® 6 allows for a better workflow,” said VVAR MLS Chairperson Chuck Knapp. “With this service, our REALTORS® can pull up a listing in our MLS and with a single click, push the listing data into a new set of electronic forms.”
REALTORS® save time because of the single sign-on between the MLS and zipForm® 6. By eliminating the need to open up another program and use a separate set of login credentials, they can quickly start filling out the necessary forms for a buyer. In addition, property information and listing agent contact information is prepopulated from the MLS listing detail.
“MLS systems value keeping the user within their platform,” said REBS Chairperson Robert Bailey. “At the same time, users like it because it removes the likelihood of data entry errors.”
VVAR MLS also provides zipFormMLS-Connect® to its REALTORS®, which allows the user to start the transaction from zipForm® 6 and then pull in the MLS listing data. Utilizing this technology helps streamline the transaction creation process, while providing a service that adds tangible value and maintains the integrity of the information within the database.
