MLS Launches New Logo, Strengthens Brand
With our former logo representing our business for well over a decade and in order to enhance, strengthen and enforce our brand the NNRMLS Executive Team initiated the development of a newly designed NNRMLS logo! “Our new logo reflects the natural beauty of our region and symbolizes the values of our organization and those we wish to reflect in our professional membership,” said NNRMLS CEO George Pickard.

The MLS Rule Book
As an esteemed member of Northern Nevada Regional Multiple Listing Service, you know the MLS Rule Book. You know it’s all about facilitating a marketplace where you help your clients make informed decisions. Recently, your NNRMLS Trustees approved important updates as recommended by the Governing Documents Workgroup. Click here to find out more about these recent changes to the Policy Manual and the Rules and Regulations. Our team also designed a comprehensive MLS Rule Book Resource webpage, click here to access that important information!
Training Resource Page
We created a new Training Resource webpage to create a unified user experience for our members looking for MLS training. All MLS training resources can be found on this one page. In order to streamline your experience, we also added a new Training button to our Member Launchpad. Click here to access our new training page!
Brokers Can Now Edit Team Name in Paragon, Form Will Be Changed
Brokers now have enhanced listing-edit capabilities in Paragon MLS! The IT group at NNRMLS was able to grant all Brokers the ability to adjust Team Name in Paragon listing input. Because of this new editing ability, our team will be removing “Team Name” from the NNRMLS Listing Information Correction Form in the coming weeks. This should save brokers and agents time since previously only MLS staff could make this adjustment.
PRODUCTS & SERVICES UPDATES:
Member Launchpad Updates:
The Member Launchpad got a new banner, one new button, two updated buttons and some relabeling to reflect brand changes for MLS, give easy access to our new Training Resource page and branding changes for three of our product offerings.
Updated Launchpad Banner: As part of the release of our logo redesign our team updated the banner that appears at the top of your Member Launchpad!
MLS Training: As part of the release of our new unified Training Resource webpage, our creative designer has created a new Training button! This button links to the brand new MLS Training Options webpage that serves as a one-stop-shop for all MLS training resources. Resources included are live class options for one-on-one and group classes and classes offered by our software vendors.
TransactionDesk: The label for TransactionDesk changed to “TransactionDesk by Lone Wolf.” It was previously labeled “TransactionDesk (formerly Instanet).” This change better reflects the branding and product offering of Lone Wolf. This change will not affect the software.
The MLS Tax Suite by CRS Data: The button and label changed for our public records provider CRS Data. The button now depicts a house key and the label was changed to “The MLS Tax Suite by CRS Data.” The old button showed an older version of the company’s logo and the label read “CRS Data.” This change better reflects CRS Data’s product offering and will not affect the software.
Learning Management Software: The button and label changed for our on-demand learning management software. The button is now a custom logo graphic resembling a star shape, and the label is “Trakstar Learn.” This service was formerly known as “Mindflash,” the button was an “M” and the label was “On-Demand Training.” This change reflects a recent ownership change for the company and a rebranding by Trakstar of its product offerings. This change will not affect the software.
We’re thrilled to share with you one of the most exciting things Lone Wolf’s been working on for the last two years! Our mission is to simplify the work that agents and brokers do every day, and empower them to amaze their clients with modern, digital experiences, and with the launch of a new Authentisign, we’re doing just that. NOTE: Authentisign is the eSignature solution included with TransactionDesk (Instanet).

Paragon Photo Upgrade:
We could not be happier to announce the arrival of High-Resolution photos in the Paragon MLS system! Starting August 3 all photos will be displayed in the newly enhanced High-Resolution setting. The new resolution is 3000 x 2000 pixels and the Paragon system now allows photo files up to 15 MB to be uploaded to Paragon. This enhancement significantly enhances the overall quality of listing photos displayed throughout Paragon and delivered to broker and third-party websites! Please notify your professional photographers of this new enhancement! Note; this upgrade does not affect listing photos uploaded into the Paragon system before August 3.
Paragon Summer 2021 Updates (version 5.84):
Our team is always looking for ways to help you stay updated on the latest enhancements to your Paragon MLS System. Approximately every six weeks the technology company that owns Paragon, Black Knight, releases a new version to the Paragon MLS software. The July 2021 update is called the 5.84 version. The latest Paragon changes mostly update Paragon Connect, the new mobile-friendly compliment to the Desktop version, with enhancements to searching. The new report called ConnectView in Paragon Desktop got a minor cosmetic update and in addition, and we highlight a small client-facing UI change in Collaboration Center, that will make it easier for your contacts to access the Collab Center site from their phones.
