Do You Need an MLS in Manhattan?

If you've been underserved for years with respect to control of your data,
HGMLS and are for you.

HGMLS is built for brokers, plain and simple. We believe brokers deserve an MLS that works to protect their listing data, that runs on a world-class infrastructure today, not tomorrow. We don't make promises, we run an MLS. We're here, and we're ready to serve you.

HGMLS runs on CoreLogic’s Matrix platform, the most comprehensive MLS application in the business. Matrix combines easy to use functionality with cutting-edge speed, returning thousands of results in hundredths of a second. It’s thoroughly mobile, and built for agents who want the best for their clients.

Matrix is the backbone of HGMLS, and it enables agents to do more with their listings without cobbling together third-party solutions. With HGMLS, you can prepare CMAs, listing presentations, market stats and even see property history back to 1997, right within the platform.

Broker-Controlled Syndication

HGMLS has been syndicating listings to third-party portals since 2002. Brokers control every aspect of where listings are sent, through an easy to use control panel. Since HGMLS is also owned by HGAR, meaningful and preferential display rules have been negotiated on behalf of members on third-party portals.

For example, on Zillow Group properties outside of Manhattan, the listing agent is always shown first — before premier agents that pay for advertising. HGMLS and HGAR’s negotiating power and market dominance protects listings and REALTORS alike.

Brokers can also track the performance of syndicated HGMLS listings via ListTrac, wherever they appear on the internet. These reports can be used to keep sellers in the loop.

All of my listings are in RLS. How do I put my listings into HGMLS?

HGMLS recognizes that Manhattan brokers have longstanding business relationships and processes that are tied to their RLS vendors. That's why HGMLS will accept listing feeds from every RLS vendor so that they can be fed into the HGMLS system without substantially changing your business processes.

When a Manhattan broker joins HGMLS and uses an authorized RLS vendor for listing entry, the broker may authorize the vendor to send their listing feed to HGMLS.

We will then give you the opportunity to augment and verify the listing with additional tax, address, amenity and building information. We will then notify the responsible broker to upload the exclusive listing agreements. Once the listing agreement is uploaded, it will become an active listing in HGMLS.

From that point forward, the listing will be administered and managed by the HGMLS platform. Members of HGAR and HGMLS have 24 hours to make a listing active after signing an exclusive listing agreement.


Where does your historical information come from for Manhattan?

Our data is assembled from more than 100 public and private sources for every unit, co-op and townhouse in Manhattan. Our sources include ACRIS; the departments of city planning, buildings, transportation, MTA, police department, and fire department; and the Landmarks Preservation Commission, among many others.

When a Manhattan listing arrives in HGMLS, the responsible broker is given access to an online tool to verify their listing details against our active and historical dataset before it is released into the MLS. This makes it possible for you to go the extra mile for your clients without having to independently verify every detail of your listing using expensive paid services (or lots of old-fashioned shoe leather).

We understand that buildings and units often have several addresses associated with a single listing. When this happens, we show all addresses associated with the listing to eliminate confusion.


Can I input listings directly into HGMLS?

Every broker can add and edit listings directly in HGMLS. You don't have to use third-party or RLS-verified access applications to use HGMLS, though we can accept feeds from them.


Where are HGMLS’ listings syndicated?

Every broker controls where their listings are sent via ListHub. Listings are never sent to any third-party portal automatically. There are more than 150 participating publishers that reach home buyers on more than 750 websites, including Zillow Group sites, and
