Welcome to "Yes MLS"
Carl R. DeMusz, Yes MLS CEO

You may be wondering what has happened to NORMLS and CRIS? Well, they consolidated and “Yes MLS”, the largest MLS in Ohio with over 12,000 members in 36 counties was created. “Yes MLS” is owned by 10 REALTOR Shareholder Associations and governed by a 14-member Board of Directors. The 2018 Officers are: Chairman: John Lynch, Vice Chairman: Marlin Palich and Treasurer: James Fox.

At the end of 2019, “Yes MLS” will hold its first elections and appointments for the 16 members Board of Directors. There will be six seats up for election at large, six appointed seats by the Shareholders and four appointments by the four largest firms measured by transaction sides prior to the elections. This provides a wide variety of representatives to serve the membership.

The primary purpose of “Yes MLS” is to provide a means by which authorized Participants make blanket unilateral offers of compensation to other Participants. The goal is to provide the technology and services to facilitate the sharing of these offers and necessary information between member Participants and to help them share listings with consumers in the format they desire. “Yes MLS” is charged with doing this in the most cost-effective manner possible.

To accomplish these goals, NORMLS and CRIS have blended their resources, including facilities, equipment, and the best MLS staff in the state. The NEOHREX Rules & Regulations will be kept in effect with only minor tweaks where needed. The Board of Directors is in the process of evaluating all of the products and services to make certain only the best and most requested are offered. When that process has been completed, and we bundle together for you only the best products and services, our fees structure may have to change, but until then, we will be charging to REALTOR members $180.00 every 6 months.

“Yes MLS” updates and information will be posted via www.mlsnow.com, Yes-MLS Facebook page, Yes-MLS Twitter page, Yes MLS Dashboard, and broadcast emails from “Yes MLS”.

Whether you were formerly a NORMLS member or a CRIS member, you are now a “Yes MLS” member. For questions, assistance, or services, the number to call is 216-485-4100.

The answer is YES – the right mortgage lender recommendation will improve borrower satisfaction. Trusted lenders will help you close faster and protect your commissions.

When homebuyers are referred to a mortgage lender by their real estate agent, they are actually more satisfied than homebuyers that use their own lender.  According to the National Borrower Satisfaction Index from consulting firm Stratmor Group, borrowers tend to be the most satisfied when the agent refers trusted lenders that makes them feel “comfortable”—someone that engages the buyer early and makes them feel reassured throughout the entire home buying process.

Agents should not overlook the important of connecting buyers and lenders

The MLS is the lifeblood of the real estate business. The United States is the only place in the world with this system of cooperation among competing brokerages. Generally, most lenders completely overlook the MLS as a source of introductions to new home buyers – because it is, after all, a tool exclusively for real estate agents.

Trusted lenders help you close faster

RatePlug has changed this dynamic by redefining agent-lender cooperation on the MLS platform. With RatePlug, lenders connect with their agents. Agents then allow lenders to post their rates and products on their MLS listings.

By connecting their most trusted lenders into their MLS listings, agents protect their buyers and ensure that the lenders that are most capable of “getting the deal done” are introduced early to homebuyers as they are searching for a home. Agents benefit because RatePlug-enabled listings close 15% faster than listings that do not use RatePlug.
RatePlug enabled listings display a trusted lender’s current products and rates in an interactive calculator that allows the homebuyer to model multiple scenarios and understand the total cost (including PITI) of owning the property. Buyers are better qualified because they understand the monthly cost to own.
