Update on Northwest MLS

Posted in Uncategorized

You may have noticed that in the past week there haven’t been many new properties for sale online in Western Washington.

Well actually there are plenty of properties for sale. Last week the Northwest Multiple Listing Service converted all of their IT systems to a new vendor and as sometimes happens in big conversions, not everything went according to plan.

The main impact to consumers is that not all of the new properties for sale are getting to other websites.

This is affecting all members of the NWMLS and those who get real estate listings from them. The folks over at the NWMLS are working around the clock to fix the problem and we are confident they will. The NWMLS has been a strong MLS for many years and we know they will continue to be.

In the meantime…your best source for real estate information is still your real estate agent! If you would like to be put in touch with a Windermere agent please email us at and we will make sure you get a great agent to work with.



  • Great idea. Thanks Edward

  • Thank you for the update. I know that our agents have launched private email campaigns and increased the number of signs they use at their open houses in order to continue to serve their clients during the NWMLS transition. Buyers have benefited from face to face phone calls with their agents rather than relying on automated email updates that we've all grown to rely on. We've all had to get more creative...I'd like to hear about more workarounds.
