In the real estate world, MLS stands for Multiple Listing Service. The MLS safeguards market information and creates connections between professionals with properties to sell and those with clients who may buy them.

The MLS is how consumers, through their agent or broker, become knowledgeable about real estate. The vast majority of home sales happen by real estate brokers and agents working together on the MLS, not because of portals, websites or apps, according to the Council of Multiple Listing Service (CMLS), a professional trade association of which Canopy MLS is an active member serving in leadership roles.
