What is the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)?

The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is an online database of homes currently listed for sale and is the most important and effective marketing tool a REALTOR® has to offer a potential home seller.

REALTORS® use this database to advertise and promote their own listings and to offer a general invitation to other real estate agents to cooperate in the sale and share in the commission, as well as to find homes to show prospective buyers.

The vast majority of real estate transactions directly result from exposure on the MLS. Only real estate licensees that are members of the MLS are able to post and advertise homes on this vital resource.

As the company’s Designated REALTOR®, Paul R. Venning is an active member of the Broward, Palm Beaches & St. Lucie REALTORS® and BeachesMLS.

Our policy is to cooperate with and to compensate selling real estate agents, thereby providing them with every incentive to show and help sell your home, except when it is not in a seller’s best interest to do so.
