Mobile Friendly
Client Portal

According to our statistics, ALMOST 50% of your clients are using their mobile device to view the listings you send them from connectMLS. For example, in April 2014 alone, there were almost 1,000,000 accesses to client portals via iPhone. These numbers will continue to increase.
