Meet Pillar 9™ – the registered company name of Alberta One Realty Listing Services Inc. (AORLS). This spring, Pillar 9 services will launch to provide a streamlined technology experience for REALTORS®.
Pillar 9™ is a for profit company owned by its REALTOR® subscribers – members of nine Alberta real estate boards and the Alberta Real Estate Association (AREA), which represent the founding shareholders.
With Pillar 9™, REALTORS® will have access to a wider pool of data to better serve their clients, improved buying power, access to new products and services, plus the ability to conduct business on a single-point MLS® System.
Alberta board members will have access to a newly designed Matrix™ interface, with streamlined data fields and pick lists that are consistent for all users across Alberta. The new MLS® structure and fields have been developed to streamline data input, provide greater data accuracy and meet the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO) Gold standards.
As each board migrates to Pillar 9™, their property listing data will be added to the new system. Boards will have access to all provincial data once every board has migrated to the new system.
Alberta boards will begin migration to Pillar 9 in April 2020.
