Ask David: What is Front End of Choice?

NorthstarMLS is one of the first MLSs in the country to offer MLS subscribers a choice of which Front End software to use for viewing and sharing listings. For a limited time you can try two of them out!

November 17, 2023

NorthstarMLS offers three options for displaying and searching listings and accessing MLS tools through Front End of Choice. The three Front End of Choice options NorthstarMLS provides subscribers are Matrix, Paragon and Flexmls.

These systems are all connected to the centralized NorthstarMLS database and Add/Edit listing input system. This means that all three systems produce the same search results, but may provide different report options, tools and other features.

This flexibility ensures subscriber satisfaction across NorthstarMLS’s vast reach. One MLS system is included in your subscription, but additional MLS systems can be added for a fee.

Free Trial Available through 2023

Through the end of 2023, NorthstarMLS in partnership with Paragon and Flexmls, are offering free trials. As a subscriber you are already set up to try these front ends. Simply log into and click on the icon for Paragon Connect or Flexmls to explore! Note that any contacts or saved searches made in these front ends during this trial period are not transferrable.
