Paragon Report View – Enhancement
On August 22nd, the “2-Page Agent” report view in the Paragon MLS will be enhanced to display the upcoming “Open House” and “Tour” dates and times. This enhancement will allow for easier access to open house and tour data while viewing a listing.
MLS Area Field Repurposing
On October 16th, the following change will be made to the Paragon MLS. The “Area” field lookups are being updated to just a single lookup of “Listing” rendering the field useless. We recommend the use of the “City” field, “Zip Code” field, or Map Search as a replacement for use of the “Area” field.
Saved Search Issue:
Updating the “Area” to a single lookup will trigger notifications on any “Saved Searches” that utilize the “Area” field. To ensure you do not bombard your clients with emails containing listings that do not match their search criteria, we recommend that you update your saved searches now.
The following are options to utilize as an alternative to the “Area” field.
2. Zip Code
3. Map Search
Unique Areas (see above photo):
For those unique “Areas” such as Blackhawk, Rossmoor, Hayward Hills, etc.., you can leverage the “Zip Code” field for all but Rossmoor. For those agents who specialize in Rossmoor, we have created a “Map Layer” solution for your searching needs. To utilize the “Map Layer”, open the map and click on “Open Map Layer Panel” icon and check the box for “ROSSMOOR – WALNUT CREEK” then run search or add to criteria.
