ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. – My Florida Regional MLS (MFRMLS) announced that its 57,000 members will be able to access the Matrix multiple listing platform in Spanish.

“We are constantly looking for ways to create new opportunities for our brokers and agents to serve their customers,” said Merri Jo Cowen, CEO of MFRMLS. “Offering the Matrix in Spanish provides the opportunity for our members to enhance the buying experience for their Spanish-speaking customers.” 

Fueled by increased need in the marketplace for MLSs to support bilingual agents and their customers, the development and implementation processes were a collaborative effort across the industry. MFR worked closely with five other MLSs to bring forward a Spanish version of the RESO Data Dictionary, which is in the final stages of being approved by the Data Dictionary Workgroup. MFR also worked with the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP) consulting group for the extensive translation work that was needed for the user interface, reports and forms inside of Matrix.

For the technology piece of the service, MFRMLS turned to Matrix service provider, CoreLogic®.

“It was a natural fit for us to work with our multiple listing platform provider, CoreLogic, in light of the ability of the Matrix platform to offer language translation options,” said Shayne Fairley, chief operating officer of MFRMLS.

“CoreLogic is a strong believer in developing technology that has the flexibility to support the needs of our clients,” said Chris Bennett, executive leader of Real Estate Solutions for CoreLogic. “We know that clear communication is critical in every real estate transaction. By supporting clients who wish to offer other languages that are representative of the consumer and agent demand, CoreLogic continues to deliver value through Matrix in an ever-growing number of ways.”

MFRMLS expects the new Matrix Spanish option to be rolled out to its members before the end of August.
