MRIS Coming Soon Listings. Want them?

A year and a half after launching my service, which now has over 4,000 agents in the DC area as members, the 400 pound gorilla just decided to get into the game. 
Yes, MRIS Coming Soon status will be starting up on Tuesday Nov 18. The chairman of MRIS maintained in a Intro video that this was information not to be syndicated to third parties, or broker "IDX" sites like FranklyMLS. Yet, he also said we could share it with our clients. Confused? Me too. I asked for clarification. It had to be vetted through legal and compliance to clarify. Is it only for agents or our clients? 

Ultimately we CAN share it with our clients. They just make it really hard and won't deliver the data on a silver platter, ala a RETS feed. But since the Realtors at Frankly Realtors have eye balls, we can look at this information and share it with our clients. How exactly will/must that be done, is unclear. Can we only call clients with this info? How about text them? God forbid email it or display it on the Web. 

Regardless, if you want to know about MRIS Coming Soon Listings, you have come to the right place. Sign up today on and let us know what you want to know about.
