North Texas Real Estate Information Systems Inc. Selects Paragon Connect MLS From Black Knight as a Platform of Choice for Subscribers

  • NTREIS chose Paragon Connect for the seamless experience it offers users along with its easy-to-use interface
  • Paragon Connect was built with full mobile optimization in mind, which means agents can work anywhere, anytime, on any connected device

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Sept. 7, 2023 – Black Knight, Inc., now part of Intercontinental Exchange, announced today that North Texas Real Estate Information Systems Inc. (NTREIS), an MLS provider serving more than 52,000 subscribers in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, will begin offering Black Knight’s mobile-optimized Paragon Connect as an MLS Platform of Choice. With Paragon Connect, NTREIS will be able to provide its subscribers with an open, scalable and customizable MLS system that leverages API technology and connection points to deliver a high-performance, singular experience that works seamlessly and intuitively across multiple devices.

“We place a premium on choice when deciding what technology we offer our subscribers,” said John Holley, CEO of NTREIS. “And we were impressed to see that Paragon Connect allows users to do business anytime, anywhere, and from their preferred device. The flexibility and ease-of-use made Paragon Connect an easy choice for us.”

NTREIS plans to make Paragon Connect available for its subscribers in early 2024.

Paragon Connect was built specifically to help real estate brokers and agents deliver an exceptional home-buying and selling experience for their clients, in the office or on-the-go, by leveraging mobile-first technology that can be accessed from any internet-connected device. It offers real-time data, collaboration capabilities, multi-tasking features and market analytics.

This includes capabilities like EasyCMA, which allows agents to create a comparative market analysis with the tap of a button. While generating a CMA is typically a lengthy process, EasyCMA leverages Black Knight data and analytics to deliver up-to-date, reliable information directly to an internet-enabled device, and allows agents to easily share reports with sellers and buyers via the Paragon Collaboration Center.

Paragon Connect keeps agents at the center of the real estate transaction and helps them work faster and smarter. It allows them to search on any device for listings​, names​, street addresses​, nearby properties and more. As a platform of choice, Paragon Connect will also give NTREIS subscribers the ability to add, edit and maintain listings from wherever they are working. “By choosing Paragon Connect, NTREIS has added a powerful tool to its kit to help its subscribers advance their businesses,” said Ben Graboske, president, Black Knight Data & Analytics. “Paragon Connect is built for the realities of the real estate profession, and it allows agents and brokers to work where their buyers and sellers are — instead of being stuck behind a desk. Paragon Connect is defining the future of real estate and we are honored to help NTREIS provide a next-generation MLS system to its subscribers.”
