The SMARTMLS Compliance Team presents a 6-part video series entitled *NAVIGATING COMPLIANCE*

Complete the entire series of six lessons to be entered in a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card.

Watch the series alone or in a group - and discuss afterwards! 

The SMART Compliance Team is always available to answer your questions or clarify information for you!



Will focus on:

  • Compliance is the Backbone of the MLS.  Providing accurate, timely and objective property information for all subscribers is our goal.  It is a team effort involving our subscribers and staff.
  • The Role of the Participant and Subscribers and the responsibilities of each
  • Why is accurate data so important? Reliable data is essential in maintaining an accurate MLS database and access to accurate up-to-date listing data is essential to the success of your business. Without reliable information for comparable home sales in the market, establishing a price and advising on market strategies becomes increasingly difficult.
  • Enforcement of the rules is critical to protect the accuracy of MLS data and information and therefore the integrity of your business.
