CHINO HILLS, Calif., May 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — California Regional MLS (CRMLS) and NorthstarMLS have announced a Single Sign-On (SSO) agreement, allowing NorthstarMLS to convert their 22,000 subscribers onto CRMLS custom built SSO technology.

The agreement is an important step toward MLS collaboration and sets the stage for future opportunities between the two organizations. CRMLS SSO will bring a new and optimized login process for NorthstarMLS subscribers. This will create efficiencies associated with SSO and open the door for creative applications of SSO at NorthstarMLS.

CRMLS SSO is the latest in several innovative initiatives coming from the California-based MLS. “Our new SSO is another example of how CRMLS is innovating and scaling quickly, and letting brokers and subscribers from any MLS receive reliable MLS built technology to help power their business,” said Art Carter, CRMLS CEO.

“This announcement marks the start of an evolution for NorthstarMLS with our mission of providing a collaborative marketplace of real estate data, tools, and services at the forefront,” said Tim Dain, NorthstarMLS CEO. “We believe that MLSs like NorthstarMLS and CRMLS have similarities that can and should benefit both MLSs and the customers we serve.”

CRMLS and NorthstarMLS have begun to work together to implement the necessary changes required to convert NorthstarMLS onto CRMLS SSO. The SSO integration is expected to launch later in 2023 within the new REcenterhub dashboard that CRMLS has designed and developed from the ground up.
