New Paragon Features

August 9, 2011

Twitter & HOT

A new social feature has been added to Homes Open Today (HOT) to provide additional exposure for your open houses!  When you add an open house either through Paragon or directly to HOT, it will be automatically posted to Twitter.  The Tweet will include address, date & time, the listing agent, and a direct link to the open house profile on HOT.  To make use of this new feature, you can do one of the following:

  • Visit http://twitter.com/#!/homesopentoday with your browser
  • Create a Twitter account and follow #homesopentoday
  • Create a Twitter account and follow #openhome_cityname to follow open houses within a specific area (ie #openhome_oakland)

 Statistical Reporting 

There is a new statistical reporting module in Paragon under the Resources menu button.  Along with market stat functionality, Agents may generate reports for personal activity compared to the MLS at large, and Brokers may see statistics for all Agents within their respective firms.  Reports may be printed or exported to Excel.

Paragon 5

If you have not yet begun exploring Paragon 5, please begin familiarizing yourself with it at your earliest opportunity.  There are a variety of good training videos, guides, and webinars available in the Paragon 5 help section to get you started.  EBRDI also offers familiarization classes, which can be viewed by logging into www.ebrdi.com and clicking on the Training button.
