JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – May 8, 2014 -- The MLS Solutions division of Black Knight Financial Services (formerly the LPS MLS Solutions division), announced today that the Realtor Association of the Sioux Empire, Inc., the St. Augustine & St. Johns County MLS, Inc., and the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors, which collectively serve 2650 real estate professionals, have each chosen Black Knight’s Paragon® MLS as their new multiple listing service system. Paragon MLS is a dynamic software platform that makes it easy for real estate professionals to manage their businesses and collaborate with clients.
The Realtor Association of the Sioux Empire, which has 600 members and is located in Sioux Falls, S.D., selected Black Knight’s Paragon MLS system for its intuitive design; desktop and mobile compatibility; true multi-tasking; easy-to-use and professionally branded comparative market analyses (CMAs); and a powerful client connect portal for engaging and collaborating with clients. Paragon MLS features intuitive, straightforward navigation and provides real estate agents with access to the information they need to help win new business and complete transactions.
“After several months of evaluating and hands-on testing of the top MLS systems in the industry, our MLS Committee and the Realtor Association of the Sioux Empire Board of Directors chose Paragon based on its intuitive navigation and built-in workflows, as well as for the freedom it offers our members to use the system via their desktop, tablet and smartphone of choice. Additionally, we factored into our analysis the consistent, frequent Paragon software releases, and the professionalism of the people on the Black Knight MLS Solutions team,” said Kristen Gulson, CEO of the Realtor Association of the Sioux Empire.
Anne Gardner, CEO of the Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS in Virginia, said there were several compelling reasons to select Paragon MLS to help serve the organization’s 1,325 members. “The Paragon product line is feature-filled and flexible, and is consistently evolving to ensure that customer feedback and IT advancements are incorporated. Paragon’s solid service reputation and extensive experience in smooth conversions help ensure we are meeting our obligation to provide a first-class, comprehensive MLS solution to our membership,” Gardner said. “Undertaking a search for MLS solutions is a weighty task, and the prospect of converting is daunting. After a thorough search, Paragon ‘checked all of our boxes,’ and it became obvious that Paragon would help us to best serve our members.”
The St. Augustine & St. Johns County Board of Realtors, located in Northeast Florida, has 725 members. Association executive Victor Raymos said, “After completing a long and thorough process, we chose Paragon for its robust features and ability to take our members to the next level. We are very excited about the Paragon MLS platform and our members can’t wait to start using Paragon later this year.”
“We are extremely excited that three new customers have joined the Paragon family to help their members utilize this system to grow their businesses,” said Rich Lull, Black Knight MLS managing director. “We look forward to partnering with them to meet and exceed the needs of their respective memberships.”
