The MLS

If it’s on the market, we’ve got it.

The Multiple Listing Service is a trusted and accurate source for real estate listings and data in Manhattan, Bronx, Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange and Sullivan Counties in New York State. It is wholly owned and operated by the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, in business since 1916.

MLS is unquestionably the best source for real estate information because our listing information is provided by our REALTOR members — the hard-working licensed real estate salespeople who represent homebuyers and sellers in our community.

Every listing is checked for accuracy, completeness and timeliness. They’re also regularly updated by our members and inspected by our quality control team. Finally, every MLS listing is subject to the rules of the multiple listing service itself, which are enforced to ensure data accuracy.

Consumers access all of the active properties in the MLS by visiting, www.HGAR.com or www.NewYorkMLS.com. These websites offer access to accurate and robust listing data and provide a phenomenal search experience on property, neighborhood, school and community information.

By working with one of our REALTOR® Members, consumers have access to a  network of real estate sale professionals who have access to the MLS and additional technology tools and resources to help you with your home search and can work with you throughout the entire transaction process through closing.

MLS’ Mission

The mission of MLS is simple: protect consumers, agents and brokers by ensuring that everyone who is involved in a real estate transaction has the most accurate, real information about the property.

That’s one reason other national portals just can’t compete with our first-hand, local and in-depth information.

Real estate advertising portals are simply not subject to the same stringent business rules we place on our members for accuracy. They’re also not the originators of the listing data; other portals may receive a feed from HGAR brokers if they choose to provide one. The result for national portals is incomplete and often inaccurate listings since not all listings on national portals come straight from the MLS.

Simply put, if it’s on the market in Manhattan, Westchester or the Hudson Valley, we’ll have the listing first, before any other national real estate site.

What’s more, our members are bound by the National Association of Realtors’ Code of Ethics, so you can count on the fact every listing we present will be represented by a qualified, licensed and ethical Realtor.

Whether you’re looking for the latest open houses, or every three-bedroom, two-bath home in Manhattan or the Hudson Valley, MLS is here to serve you. Our listings are free of distracting advertising, and enable you to get in touch immediately with the listing agent for any property you’re interested in. We can’t think of a better way to serve than bringing buyers and sellers together with our members.
