Real estate data and technology firm Black Knight Financial Services has signed another multiple listing service to its Paragon 5 platform, bringing the number of real estate professionals the platform serves to more than 210,000.

Paragon 5 received top marks in a satisfaction survey conducted by real estate consulting firm Clareity Consulting earlier this year. MLS execs responding to the survey indicated high and increasing satisfaction with the platform and all said they would choose Black Knight again if they had the choice to do so.

At the time of the survey in January, Paragon 5 had 235 MLS accounts with 197,000 subscribers. Since then, at least an additional six MLSs have signed up for the platform: the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors; the Realtor Association of the Sioux Empire Inc.; the St. Augustine & St. Johns County MLS Inc.; the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors; Triangle MLS; and, most recently, Jackson, Mississippi-based Central Mississippi MLS Inc. Collectively, those MLSs represent about 14,150 members.

“Our MLS committee and staff spent over a year researching all of the available vendors, and in the end we felt that Paragon not only offered ‘out of the box’ ease of use, but the most user-friendly experience and an ongoing product evolution to meet emerging trends,” said Robert W. Conwill Jr., communications manager and MLS administrator for Central Mississippi MLS, in a statement today.

Central Mississippi MLS, which has about 1,500 members, joins other MLSs that have decided to replace their Solid Earth LIST-IT platforms with those of other vendors, including Greater Baton Rouge, Charleston Trident MLS, Manhattan MLS and North Alabama MLS. LIST-IT received comparatively poor satisfaction rankings in the Clareity survey.

Central Mississippi MLS signed a multiyear agreement for Paragon 5 because of its intuitive design; desktop and mobile compatibility; multitasking capabilities; easy-to-use and professionally branded comparative market analyses (CMAs); and a portal that enables real estate professionals to easily engage and collaborate with clients, Black Knight said.
