GFC-CMLS Products

RE/Xplorer 2.5
The GFC CMLS’ main MLS program, RE/Xplorer allows agents to search listings, email reports to clients, manage Contacts, create CMAs, search tax records, get neighborhood reports and search the GFC CMLS membership roster. RE/Xplorer is also the only way to add or modify listings and search for Tours/Open Houses on the MLS.

Paragon 4
Paragon provides an upgraded contact manager that enables you to set up your clients for customizable automatic email notifications of matching listings- you control the type of report and the timing of the email that your contacts receive. Additionally, Paragon includes a powerful, highly customizable CMA module that allows you to print out robust presentation CMA reports. For appraisers, Paragon offers a report format that automatically generates the information required for the 1004MC report.

Listingbook provides comprehensive, up-to-date real estate information, straight from the GFC CMLS. Used by both agents and clients, Listingbook fosters communication and allows clients the ability to search listings, mark properties as favorites or rejects, modify their property search, and see competition for their home. With Listingbook, it is very simple for agents to keep track of their client’s activity and know exactly what they are looking for.

DocCentral enables agents to safely and easily upload and store documents for their listings. Documents can be set to private (so only the agent can access them), or they can be made public and available for any GFC CMLS user to view. Transaction management documentation has never been easier or more efficient.

rDesk is a free IDX solution that allows agents to easily integrate customizable MLS searches into their personal websites. In addition to the IDX functionality, rDesk also includes many other valuable resources: a contact manager, a lead generator, neighborhood and school reports, flyers, mapping and driving direction tools, mortgage calculators and a calendar

You can search by MLS number, address, style and many other criteria. The membership roster can also be searched to find an agent’s phone number or email address. You can even email listings to your clients directly from your handheld device.

Supra provides agents with an integrated key/keybox network with reliable and secure information on showing activity and feedback on listings as well as allowing agents to chose the device they use and the level of service they receive.

Windows 7 Users

If you have a computer that is running Windows 7 and would like to make it compatible with RE/Xplorer, we have just created a step-by-step guide that walks you through the settings that need to be configured.
Please click here for the instructions.

As always, if it is during our normal business hours and you'd like a GFC CMLS technician to walk you through the configurations, or take over your computer and do it for you, please do not hesitate to call us.

These instructions are also applicable if you have recently upgraded to Internet Explorer 8 and need to make RE/Xplorer compatible with it.

Our Data Checker program is set up to check for any CTS or Pending listing where the PCD has passed (by seven days) and has not either been SOLD/RENTED or the PCD adjusted to reflect some date in the future.
When you receive notification from us that the PCD on your listing has passed, please adjust the date or close the transaction out. Not doing so will result in a $10 fine for both agent and office. Sometimes, you may not know the specific date of closing, in these cases please enter your best estimate. As always, do not hesitate to contact our office if you have questions or need assistance.
