BERKELEY, CALIF., – bridgeMLS®, serving the East Bay of San Francisco California, announced today that it has launched dynaConnections®’ responsive MLS solution, connectMLS™ to its subscribers. The integration effort was completed over a period of six months. Now the 3500 real estate agent and brokerage subscribers to bridgeMLS may interchangeably use either Black Knight®’s Paragon® multiple listing system or dynaConnections®’ connectMLS™.

“We are excited to offer two leading MLS solutions to our subscribers so they can use the one that best meets their needs,” says Tia Hunnicutt, bridgeMLS Chairperson. “Both systems are excellent, but have variations in features and usability that will appeal to different segments of the 3500 Realtors® we serve.” Hunnicut indicates that dynaConnections was chosen on the basis of consistently earning the highest ratings for MLS systems in industry studies. connectMLS is renowned for its user personalization, responsive display on any size screen, usability, reports, contact management, and integrated transaction management.

“Our goal is to make bridgeMLS the most attractive Multiple Listing Organization in Northern California while maintaining cooperative relationships with other Multiple Listing Organizations throughout the state,” says DaVina Lara, Chief Executive of bridgeMLS. “With dual systems we can deliver the highest quality product for our subscribers and support our partnership with the Delta Association of REALTORS® with these expanded services too. Perhaps the most outstanding part of this announcement was our ability to extend these services without passing along fee increases to our subscribers.”

bridgeMLS also provides its subscribers with the capability of accessing the NORCAL reciprocal access program though CoreLogic’s Clareity Dashboard to the following MLS systems: BAY EAST, CONTRA COSTA, SFAR MLS, BAREIS MLS, MLS Listings, MetroList MLS, and Nevada County.

bridgeMLS has initiated reciprocal data sharing cooperation with a number of Multiple Listing Organizations that will also be supported by dynaConnections. By the end of March, users of connectMLS will also have native access to listing data from BAY EAST, CONTRA COSTA, and MLS Listings. By the end of the third quarter of 2019, the data sharing effort will be expanded to include listing data from the southern regions of the state of California: California Regional MLS (CRMLS) and The MLS™/CLAW.

“Doing this type of sophisticated integration project was exciting for all of us at dynaConnections and we cannot compliment the staff at bridgeMLS enough for their hard work and considerable skills. It took incredible teamwork by both organizations to support bridgeMLS with delivering this level of complex data mapping in under six months. This may be an industry record,” says Tim Ford, President and CEO of dynaConnections. “This is proof that even a relatively medium sized Multiple Listing Organization can be agile in delivering the same extraordinary diversification of services that have been historically reserved for the nation’s largest MLSs.”
