Aspen, Glenwood realtors merge MLS databases

An MLS system probably doesn’t mean much to you if you’re not selling a house.

But if there’s a for sale sign in front of your home, the recent merger of the Multiple Listing Services, or MLS, database could mean you’ll sell your home a little faster than before.

The Aspen Board of Realtors’ and Glenwood Springs Association of Realtors’ MLS systems have merged, allowing listings to be seen from Aspen to Craig.

“We’ll have better access from one end of the valley to the other,” said Bonnie Daniels, associate broker with Vickie Lee Green Real Estate in Glenwood Springs. “From a seller’s standpoint, they’ll have more visibility to more realtors.”

Until now, real estate brokers had to be paying members of both the Aspen and Glenwood real estate associations to gain access to listings in both towns, said Cheryl Burns, associate director of the Glenwood Springs Association of Realtors.

“Now with a combined MLS, there’s going to be a fantastic savings in time for a lot of those members as well as for a potential cost savings,” she said.

Listings will be available for one fee to members of both associations, whose members stretch from Aspen all the way to Craig, she said.

The associations’ members asked for the merger, which took two years to complete, she said.

The combined system was slated to be operating Monday.
