VOW (Virtual Office Website) … Access 100% of MLS Listings



Most real estate websites give you access to 60-70% of the listings on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS®) without registration. This level of access is provided through an opt-in agreement between Brokerages called IDX (Internet Data Exhange).

VOW – Virtual Office Website gives you access to 100% of the listings on the MLS®. The VOW is a secure password-protected internet website that requires users to Register an Account with their full name, email and phone number. As per TREB and CREA rules, Brokerages cannot opt-out of this system, which means users can see all MLS® listings entered into the Toronto Real Estate Board system by Brokerages and REALTORS®.

FAQ

Why do I have to Register?

As per TREB and CREA rules and terms of service, we must establish a non-exclusive broker-consumer relationship before allowing you access to our VOW property search. This relationship is established when you Register an Account  on our website. You will create a unique username and password which will be valid for up to 90 days with the option to renew. 


What happens if I don’t want to Register?

Although you will not be able to view all of the properties available on the MLS, you will still be able to view all of our company listings as well as the listings of IDX opt-in Brokerages.


What is a broker-consumer relationship?

Once registered, we will contact you by email to verify your registration information and determine your interest in 1) possibly working with us toward the sale, purchase or investment of real estate, 2) receiving instant property alerts, 3) being added to our contact database for future follow-up, or 4) not being contact by us again. Beyond the initial email, you are in no way obligated to work with us or use any of our real estate services.


What happens to my contact information?

In the interest of protecting your privacy, we will not sell, distribute or use your information for any purpose other then for the intention that it was provided. You retain the right to opt-out at anytime. We will maintain a record of your name, email address, username and password for at least 180 days after password expiry to comply with RECO Rules.
