Minnesota State Data Sharing Available Again to NorthstarMLS Subscribers

Since the original Minnesota MLS data share agreement ended, we have looked for alternatives for sharing statewide listing information and offers of compensation. We initially announced FIND as a solution, but have since added RPR View™ from Realtors Property Resource.

RPR View™, consolidated into RPR, is already available to you through your NorthstarMLS subscription. You may now access listings in RPR (including offers of compensation) from these Minnesota State MLS’s:

  • Duluth Area Association of Realtors
  • Greater Alexandria Area Association of Realtors
  • Lake Region Association of Realtors (Fergus Falls)
  • Northwest Minnesota Association of Realtors (Bemidji)
  • Realtor Association of Southern MN (Mankato)
  • Southeast Minnesota Association of Realtors (Rochester/Winona)
  • West Central Association of Realtors (Willmar)

Please take a moment to watch this short video that shows how you can access these MLS listings, including offers of compensation through RPR.

If you have never used RPR and need to create an account, learn how here. If you need help, RPR’s Call Center is ready to walk you through, 24/7. Call 1-877-977-7576.  Once your account is set up (or if you have already been using RPR), access it here from the Matrix home tab drop-down menu or the External Links box.

As announced by your REALTOR Associations, the Minnesota MLS data share organization SASI’s data vendor contract ended April 30.

We are pleased to announce that the participating REALTOR Associations now have an alternative method for sharing MLS listings with offers of compensation included. This sharing is available through the Find application, available to you as a NorthstarMLS core service.

Association listings currently available through Find are the Duluth Area Association of Realtors and the Realtors Association of Southern Minnesota (Mankato).

Other Association MLS listings that will be added soon are: West Central (Willmar), Greater Alexandria, Northwest Minnesota (Bemidji), Lakes Region (Fergus Falls) and Southeast Minnesota (Rochester). We will update you as these become available.

As of now, members of these Associations can view NorthstarMLS listing reports (including the offer of compensation) in Find.

To access Find, select it from the External Links box here on the Matrix home screen:

Within Find, search your desired area, for example Duluth. On the listing detail pages, you will find a link like this:

Click the link to open an MLS report that includes the offer of compensation.

We understand this solution is not as convenient as being able to search and view the listings directly within NorthstarMLS, but we are pleased to be able to offer it as an alternative (to having nothing) to help you do business in Minnesota across the arbitrary boundaries between MLS’s.

For help using Find, open the Find application and click the Help link in the upper left corner of the screen:
