Power Up: Bright MLS Preview Begins October 29th!

DAAR Members! Your estimated conversion date of Tuesday, November 20th, 2018 to Bright MLS is about four weeks away! Bright is excited to bring you onboard so you can take advantage of some of the innovative features Bright offers to help drive your business forward.

It’s time to Power Up! Here’s what to expect.

Your transition to Bright will occur over several weeks, as they prepare to convert your MLS work and as you take time to learn about Bright and how to use the MLS to your best advantage. Here’s a summary of the conversion, or “Power Up” process:

Initiate (Begins Now): Think of this phase as a “Pre-preview.” It’s a chance for you to learn about Bright, what the new system offers and what to expect from the conversion. You can do so now by reading the information available on the Initiate Power Up Page.

Calibrate (October 29th): Our “Preview” phase will begin the week of October 29th. During this 3-week preview phase, called “Calibrate,” you’ll receive your login information for BrightMLS.com by email. We’ll ask you to login, learn to navigate around the new system, perform searches, update your information, check your listings and prepare your clients for the change. This will also be when training will be available. You can find an overview of the classes herePlease also consider providing feedback on the new system back to DAAR via this form.

Activate (November 20th): We estimate that you will power up on Bright and begin to work in the new system the week of November 20th. Plan to spend some time the first day to double-check your account and all of your listings, add information on new required fields to your active listings, and update your client searches.

Please note: You will no longer have access to MRIS after your Activate Date.
