SFARMLS: What is It? How Does it Work? How can it Help Me?

At Zephyr, we recognize that industry lingo is both intimidating and essential. That is why we strongly encourage new agents to ask the questions “what is that? How does it work? How can it help me?” After all, that’s what training is for. We break down our new agent training into easily understood classes, separated by topic, so agents can effectively incorporate the tools they learn into their real estate business.
Now, let’s get back to the initial question: what is the SFARMLS? It stands for The San Francisco Association of REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service. This particular acronym is comprised of a detailed list of rules and guidelines for San Francisco REALTORS®, as well as active, sold and pending San Francisco properties. Often, local lingo can feel daunting to new agents and even experienced out-of-area agents.
Not to mention, the SFAR (San Francisco Association of REALTORS®) regularly updates these rules and guidelines with new regulations. At Zephyr, our skilled, local experts train new agents on the intricacies of terms like this one and how they apply to being a successful realtor. We also make sure to frequently update all agents, brand new and seasoned alike, with the most current SFAR regulations so every agent can optimize his or her business decisions.
We believe that hard work and determination shape a career. But we also believe there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Our agents can tap directly into the knowledge base of our local, industry experts. Zephyr Real Estate agent training sets agents up to learn the language and tools necessary so that they too can effortlessly roll out acronyms and effectively navigate the industry.
