California Regional Multiple Listing Service (CRMLS) announced Thursday it struck a deal with BoxMLS, a real estate startup that offers branded search platforms for agents and consumers. Through the deal, CRMLS’s more than 98,000 agents will get access to modern MLS search tools, branded MLS-compliant virtual office websites and branded mobile apps.

“CRMLS has made a vital step towards making its platform as open as possible,” CRMLS CEO Art Carter said in a statement. “This agreement marks a major milestone in implementing a technology that is vast and lucrative for our users.”

BoxMLS also provides brokers and agents with a listing management tool through the new partnership. All of the benefits come to CRMLS users at no additional cost. The solution is expected to available to brokers and agents in the first quarter of 2020.

“We’re thrilled to be working with the nation’s largest MLS,” BoxMLS CEO Kevin Hughes said in a statement. “Real estate professionals in California need MLS solutions that are modern, powerful, user-friendly and effective. BoxMLS checks all those boxes.”

Correction: An earlier version of this story made reference to the September 2018 partnership between BoxMLS and CoreLogic. Both Parties have since mutually agreed to terminate the partnership, according to BoxMLS CEO Kevin Hughes.
