Tip of the Week – An Updated NorthstarMLS Portal

Have you tried using the NorthstarMLS Portal (not to be mistaken with the Client Portal)? It’s an optional starting point that you can access the NorthstarMLS system from — it works great on your mobile devices, too.

The Portal allows you to easily single-click your way to any NorthstarMLS system such as Matrix, Add/Edit, BookAShowing and all others. The Portal was recently redesigned and a couple new sections were added:

  • NAR Member Resources – connects real estate pros with various NAR member benefits and other programs supported by NAR
  • Discover – this is the Clareity Store where you can try and buy various add-on products (not supported or endorsed by NorthstarMLS)
  • Redesign of the Portal homepage

You now have a new optional starting point available for accessing all NorthstarMLS systems—The NorthstarMLS Portal.

Once signed into the NorthstarMLS Portal, you can easily single-click your way to any NorthstarMLS system such as Matrix, Realist, Add/Edit, Instanet, BookAShowing and all others.


  • If Matrix is down, you can still get into any other NorthstarMLS system.
  • Another place to get important updates if Matrix is down.
  • Quick and easy access to other NorthstarMLS resources.
  • If you prefer to bookmark and go directly to Matrix and other systems, you still have that choice.  Using the Portal is optional.
