Thanks to all who participated and shared their favorite NorthstarMLS Share Your Favorite Matrix 6.7 Enhancement Contest on Facebook and Twitter. We received many great submissions – so many in fact, that we couldn’t narrow it down to just one. So we picked eight!

Improvements to the Search Box and Reverse Prospecting received the most comments by NorthstarMLS users. Michael McGee and Ryan Olson will receive $30 gift cards from Target for their comments on the Search Box, while Jenna Sanford and Tara Jo Adams will collect the same prize for their comments on Reverse Prospecting improvements.

We’ll announce the remaining four winners and their comments on the Matrix 6.7 enhancements later this week. If you still need to get up to speed with NorthstarMLS Matrix 6.7, check out our video library that highlights each new enhancement.

Here’s what today’s winners had to say about the Matrix 6.7 enhancements:

Michael McGee – Coldwell Banker Burnet

Search Fields: “I really like the improvement to the search box for municipalities. It saves me a lot of time, making me more efficient. Not only does this save time for me, but it makes me look more professional in the eyes of my clients. It’s a WIN – WIN!”

Ryan Olson – Coldwell Banker Burnet

Search Fields: “My favorite Matrix 6.7 new enhancement is the quick search feature when typing into the search fields. It seriously cut down on how long it takes to put together a search for a specific area based on cities or school districts, instead of fussing with zip codes and district ID numbers! Thank you soooooo much!”

Tara Jo Adam – RE/MAX Synergy

Reverse Prospecting: “My favorite enhancement is the added features to the reverse prospecting option. Specifically, the ‘prospect interest indicator’ column. Reverse prospecting in and of itself can be a lengthy process. This allows us to do a quicker version of reverse prospecting by narrowing down to those with already peaked interest in the property. I also really love the ‘Pre-approved’ column as I foresee this eventually being a huge timesaver as well! As soon as more agents begin to use the feature when saving or editing their contacts that is. Thanks!”

Jenna Sanford – Keller Williams Integrity NW

Reverse Prospecting: “My favorite Matrix 6.7 enhancement is the reverse prospecting feature! I love that it includes the agents email and phone number right in the list, and also that it shows if their client has it as a favorite or a possibility. It helps you determine who will be the best people contact directly, and also shows who has more interest over others. Thank you.”
