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

Earlier this week, we announced improvements to the Client Portal, including improved displays. Those improvements are now in place.  The Portal works basically the same, so your clients do not need to re-learn it. Most of the changes are cosmetic.

If you haven’t already watched, take a moment to watch our five minute tutorial video. You can share this video with your clients, and it is available in the Help section of the Portal.

Tip of the Week – Client Portal Display The Client Portal in Matrix is a great communication tool that helps you and your clients collect favorite listings – they can also organize the listings or discard the ones that don’t meet their needs. But did you know there are several different Displays within the Portal for your clients to view the reports you send them? Watch this video (under 2 minutes) and check them out.

*Note: when a client visits the portal via the emailed link you sent them and then closes out of their web browser, the portal will open in that same view they closed out of on the ensuing visit to the client portal. This video also touches on that, too.
