We've Got You Covered!

Worried about filling out the paperwork?

Our skilled paperwork assistants are available to help you with the various documents we need to post your property on the MLS® System in a professional and accurate manner.

We offer MLS® services 7 days a week.

step 4

MLS® System Paperwork Assistance

To Do: Upload identification documents, then fill out the brokerage contract and an MLS® System data input form.

Digital Documents

The forms are PDFs that you can fill out right on your computer and upload to our secure servers 7 days a week at your convenience for same/next day service.

We fill out the forms with you and you log into your FSBO account and e-sign the documents right on your PC, iMac, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. We leverage technology to streamline the process which shortens the time it takes to list properties for our sellers.

After 22+ years helping people sell on their own, we know that some people may feel a little overwhelmed with the whole sales process, and the paperwork is usually the number #1 source of the stress.

Whatever the issue is - our MLS® System support members "take most of the work out of doing the paperwork" so you don't need to worry about it!


If you are apprehensive about any of the elements of selling on your own, please let us know and a customer service member will help you (step by step) to ensure the smooth and accurate completion of your MLS® System listing!

Some customers want their MLS® System listing completed as soon as possible, while others will take as much time as they need. Each seller is in control of the speed at which they complete their listing in our system at all times.

We offer this high level of service 7 days a week - 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, including all holidays. In fact - if you wanted to be live on REALTOR.ca and the MLS® System within a couple of days, we can usually accommodate.

Whether you are using a service like ForSaleByOwner.ca to list your home, or a fancy full service real estate agent, all MLS® System listings require that certain information about the property be provided to the listing brokerage by the seller, prior to the property going live on REALTOR.ca and the MLS® System. We are governed under the exact same regulations that a full service brokerage is, and we require that all of our listings be fully compliant.

If, for whatever reason, you are unable to provide us with the info that we need to get you posted on the MLS® System, we will refund your MLS® System service purchase fully.

Once the brokerage has you up and running on REALTOR.ca
(usually within a couple days of receiving your information), you take over control of the sale of your home.
