The Upstate Alliance of REALTORS® Selects Paragon as its new MLS System

Fort Wayne, Ind., REALTOR® Association to Partner with LPS

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Nov. 10, 2011 — LPS MLS Solutions, a division of Lender Processing Services (LPS), announced today that the Upstate Alliance of REALTORS® (UPSTAR MLS) selected LPS’ Paragon™ as its MLS system.

UPSTAR MLS, located in Fort Wayne, Ind., selected LPS MLS Solutions after carefully evaluating several MLS vendors and determining that Paragon offers the features that UPSTAR MLS members need to help them become more efficient and competitive. With Paragon’s online multi-tasking capabilities, agents will save time because they have the ability to conduct property searches, create a comparative market analysis (CMA), change listing information and complete other tasks, without having to close and reopen windows on the computer. UPSTAR MLS was impressed with Paragon for a variety of reasons, including its intuitive and straightforward navigation, which will help members quickly learn how to use the system. And, because Paragon works on any browser or any mobile device, agents are able to access MLS information while in the field.

“We want our members to have the best tools to help them succeed,” said Laura Raudonis, CEO of UPSTAR MLS. “Paragon is an excellent fit for our organization because it is easy to use, fast and seamlessly connects agents with their clients. We are confident our members will experience great benefits from this new partnership and are very pleased that the system will be supported by the LPS team.”

Located in northeastern Indiana, UPSTAR MLS serves the Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, Noble, Wells and Whitley counties, and has a membership of approximately 1,500 REALTOR® and affiliate members.

“We are pleased that UPSTAR chose to convert to LPS’ Paragon, which will deliver enhanced MLS functionality to Fort Wayne real estate professionals,” said Rich Lull, senior vice president LPS MLS Solutions. “UPSTAR was looking for a cost-effective solution with robust features that could also provide a smooth transition from the association’s current system. We look forward to providing innovative tools and responsive service to UPSTAR and its members.”
