WVMLS Year in Review 2022
Updated: Jan 10
Our consistent goal throughout 2022 was to better serve our Members. We held great events, including an intensive Paragon training workshop and an Economic Forecast. We overhauled portions of our website to better fit the needs of our users, including launching "WVMLS U," a page dedicated to giving members a one-stop-shop for training and education at WVMLS.
In appreciation for your membership, we created this Year-in-Review list to remind you of the wonderful year we shared:
Paragon Professional (The traditional Paragon you most likely use from your computer.)
Collab Center was made more viable and accessible by dropping the password requirement for clients.
Adding a contact to Collab Center got easier with tweaks to the work flow.
Details reports got more DETAILED with primary photo required at time of entry.
Paragon Connect (The mobile version of Paragon)
Added the ability to add, delete, and rearrange photos to your listings from your mobile device.
Listing Entry and Maintenance was added to Connect and upgraded throughout the year.
Price Analysis feature added to help you determine the "right" price for you and your seller.
Overhauled navigation interface to allow upgrades and future menu items.
Updated message history for greater control over filtering and deleting messages.
Contact list updated with quick access buttons to make navigation more efficient.
Dynamic reports added to help you use the available screen space most effectively.
Overall, features were added with the goal of mirroring all the capabilities of Paragon Professional.
"WVMLS U" was launched with On-Demand courses, access to training videos, slides and resources, and more!
Hosted several fun ed events like the Shred Event, an Appy Hour class, and a session with national economist and funnyman Elliot Eisenberg, ph.D.
Paragon Intensive Workshops brought in-person classes "back in style" in September.
Expanded access to training with our industry partners by adding "Third Party Training" links on our site.
Held quarterly Member Forum events to communicate and solicit feedback from our Member/owners
Other Member Benefits
Access to the Domus Analytics statistics portal was expanded, from Principal Brokers in 2021 to ALL WVMLS participants in 2022. This powerful resource has been called "a game-changer" for members!
Data tweaks were made, like adding a Energy Score field, new elementary schools, and Terrace (Ter) to the street type abbreviations list.
We appreciate all you do! As a Member-Owned Non-Profit MLS, our Members are EVEYTHING to us, and we couldn't be prouder to serve you. We'll continue to make improvements throughout 2023 and beyond!
Here’s to an amazing year at WVMLS!
