Snell Real Estate has been working for the past 5 years to improve the local MLS system. The previous MLS system was a “custom” built system that was not providing the necessary benefits that our clients required to make informed buying decisions and brokers/developers needed to understand the trends within the marketplace. In addition, the old MLS system has significant data integrity issues ranging from out of date information, expired listings still being represented as active, to data mysteriously disappearing from the system. All of these issues lead to the frustration of the users and to the brokers who were attempting to leverage the system to improve their business.
In order to remedy this deficiency with the local MLS system, Snell Real Estate independently spent $40,000 to develop a new MLS System with Paragon MLS out of the U.S. We set up a complete turn-key MLS system from which the Los Cabos real estate community could have simply adopted and been up and running by year’s end. Unfortunately, we could not find adequate support to adopt the system which we had created. However, Snell Real Estate’s initiative did provoke a very positive response from AMPI (the Association of Professional Realtors in Mexico). The AMPI organization set off to design and create, with our input and direction, an MLS system that would provide the benefits that we had been searching for. We’re proud to say that the AMPI organization achieved this through the FLEX MLS system.
The new FLEX System is a state-of-the-art U.S.-based, online MLS system that offers buyers, sellers, agents and brokers the necessary tools to sell real estate and provide quality information to our clients. As the largest broker in Los Cabos, Snell Real Estate took the lead and set a date to enter not only all of our current listings, but all our actual sales history going back 4 years. This was a tremendous task, however, our information is now in the FLEX System and we are currently working with other area brokers to enter their listings and sales history. This system is ready and able to serve the Los Cabos real estate market in a manner that is commensurate with true real estate professionals.
That said, all active listings can be found not only on our Snell Real Estate website, but on the FLEX MLS system, as well.
