Matrix is Here!

We are excited to announce that Matrix is now available for all GFC CMLS users. For the next 2 months, it will be running in parallel with RE/Xplorer and Paragon. This gives everyone a great opportunity to get familiar with the system before we completely cut over to it in August. Please make sure to take advantage of this. The only functionality that will not be available during the parallel period will be listing input and modification. You will still need RE/Xplorer for all listing input and changes.

Please keep in mind that, while the foundation of our system is in place and functioning well, there are adjustments that are constantly being made behind the scenes to add/modify features and functionality. You can access Matrix by going to (do not enter www or http://) using any of the major web browsers: IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Opera. Use your normal CMLS username and password. We will have a Matrix icon on the CMLS homepage in the near future. For Matrix support, you can call the CMLS office and go to extension 330 or send an email to

There is also a Matrix Discussion forum that allows users to post questions/suggestions/issues so everyone can see them. We try to respond to these as quickly as possible. Additionally, we've created a Matrix support page on our site that contains videos, documentation and training materials. We encourage you to play around as much as you can, and welcome your feedback. We hope you enjoy your Matrix MLS experience.
