What is ROAM?

ROAM MLS, LLC is a new
MLS entity formed by the
aggregation of several
current MLSs in the state.
GCLRA - Greater Central Louisiana REALTORS® Association
Bayou Board of REALTORS®
GBRAR - Greater Baton Rouge Association of REALTORS®
NOMAR - New Orleans Metropolitan Association of REALTORS®
Our primary objective is to
deliver the benefits of
consolidated MLS services
with the least disruption
to broker’s or agent’s
established business
practices or routines.
Our mission is to make the
market work.

What does ROAM
Stand for?

Freedom from the artificial borders of previous MLS’s. 

Freedom for your listing to “roam” be exposed to 12,000 of the 15,000 REALTORS in Louisiana. 
Freedom from multiple MLS memberships, bills, data feeds, rules. 
Freedom to choose software you want to use. 
Freedom to not be forced to join something else, pay something else, or change your business practices to take advantage of these benefits

Do I have to change 
MLS software?

 No, not only do you not have to change software vendors, but you probably don’t need to change installations. 
Through the power of ROAM, over 10,000 users will be able to reap the benefits of expanded data access – in the exact same system that you are using today! 
You don’t need to change anything, join anything, or subscribe to anything more. In fact, with ROAM you can STOP paying for multiple MLS memberships.
Unlike with other options, this also means you will not have to recreate new logins, recreate or update contact records, saved searches or re-setup client portals that typically don’t work when you move from one system to another.


What if I want a new software experience?

 You got it! Through the power of ROAM, you can choose to have access to a different software than the one you are using today – but you won’t be forced to change. 
Users can choose from Matrix or Black Knight and have access to the consolidated listings in all of them. Other products may be available in the future.
ROAM also gives brokers who are operating across multiple markets the ability to standardize their company training, custom integrations, and internal business processes around a single product – creating greater efficiency and making their company MLS experience one that is unique to only those agents in that firm!


What does this mean for current GCLRA MLS subscribers?
GCLRA will continue to provide the MLS products, and top-level service and local support to which our members have become accustomed. You will not experience any change, nor will you have to do anything other than maintaining your existing GCLRA MLS participation. You will continue to log in to Matrix as you do now
In the summer of 2021, your GCLRA MLS Powered by ROAM will begin providing residential listing data for the four above-mentioned MLS
By early 2022, listings of all statuses for all property types will be included in your GCLRA MLS Powered by ROAM 
You do not have to join anything or learn anything new with your existing GCLRA MLS participation to have access to the expanded listing and sold data
All subscribers pay the same price for GCLRA MLS powered by ROAM regardless of the REALTOR® Association in which they hold membership.
