There’s a new MLS in town, and it’s what our CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty agents are using to market their listings and find their buyers a new home. Bright MLS recently replaced Metropolitan Regional Information Systems (MRIS) as the multiple listing service used by Northern Virginia, Southern Maryland, and Washington, DC agents. Bright MLS is the consolidation of 9 MLSs across six states plus Washington, DC, representing 43 associations and encompassing over 85, 000 real estate professionals. (Source)
