Get Unique Support for Brokers in Our Broker Hub

In the fast-paced world of real estate, brokers are responsible for leading and guiding agents and clients alike as they navigate the marketplace. To excel in this field, brokers need a diverse set of skills and tools. Our Broker Hub provides a set of resources for brokers, so you can ensure your operations run as smoothly as possible for all parties.

One unique aspect of our property market for brokers is the Broker Reciprocity system (IDX), which allows brokers to display one another’s listings on their sites. This puts you in control of listings across the internet. In addition to this control, IDX allows your website to become the source of truth for listing data. The more brokers participate, the more listings are available on brokerage sites, the smoother the buying and selling process is for all parties. Create a better consumer experience across sites and drive innovation by the brokerage with IDX.

At NorthstarMLS, we understand the unique opportunities and challenges brokers face, which is why we have dedicated resources for you to continue your growth and learning.
