—Largest MLS in Florida Signs Exclusive Agreement—
CoreLogic (NYSE: CLGX), a leading provider of information, analytics and business services, today announced that My Florida Regional MLS (MFRMLS) has signed an exclusive agreement with CoreLogic to participate in Partner InfoNet. Partner InfoNet is a revenue sharing program in which multiple listing services (MLSs) license their listing data to CoreLogic for use in risk management products for mortgage lenders, servicers and the capital markets.
“Partner InfoNet gives us a controlled way to license our data and deliver that value back to our members and shareholders,” said MFRMLS CEO Merri Jo Cowen. “The exclusive agreement also gives our members free access to the MLS Data Co-op, which provides valuable property data and reports such as RealAVM valuations, tax records, listing history, nearby schools, neighborhood data, community demographics, real estate trends, foreclosure information and more. With Partner InfoNet, we are creating new revenue opportunities and, at the same time, equipping our members with the tools and comprehensive property data their clients demand.”

With approximately 32,000 members and primary coverage in 13 contiguous counties, MFRMLS is the state’s largest multiple listing service (MLS) provider and among one of the largest in the country.
“Joining forces with MFRMLS has helped us deliver better value and more opportunities to our membership,” said Frederic Samson, President of the West Pasco Board of REALTORS®. “I’m happy to say the transition has been very smooth and our members are already very productive on their new MLS system.”
“We are very pleased with the success of our expansion efforts and recognize CoreLogic for their outstanding support and dedicated partnership,” added MFRMLS President Bill Dryburgh.
In addition to MFRMLS, several other Florida real estate organizations have recently joined Partner InfoNet, including Daytona Beach Area Association of REALTORS®, Florida Gulf Coast MLS, REALTORS® Association of Citrus County, and Miami REALTORS®.
