What if a Transaction is Not Showing Up?

The most common problem with a transaction not showing correctly is the listing company did not list the selling agent and left themselves as both listing and selling agent. If this occurs, here are the steps to follow to have it corrected:

  1. The managing broker of the selling office should contact the listing office managing broker and request the changes to be made. If there is still no response, pull up the listing in connectMLS, click on the “Additional Information” icon, and then click on “Report Rules Violation”. Upon completion of the form, MRED’s Rules & Regulations department will address the matter.

The deadline for ensuring that all changes are reflected in the MLS system is 12 Midnight on Friday, January 10. Please e-mail Membership@chicagorealtor.com if you have any questions. Questions about the Sales Awards Recognition? Visit our FAQ section.
