Get to Know Your MRIS CAM, Kim Mingo

November 9, 2011  |  by Kim Mingo

My name is Kim Mingo and I am a novice blogger.  Yes, this is my very first blog entry and to be honest, I am nervous.  But, I was offered a comforting thought by a REALTOR® friend, “You are MRIS.”  No, she wasn’t trying to be philosophical, just saying that I represent the company in the field and it is my face that real estate professionals know across the area.  As a Client Alliance Manager (CAM), I regularly interact with association staff, brokers, agents and appraisers at various meetings and events.  Perhaps you had an MRIS update at the last office meeting?  Or, did you attend a board function and speak with an MRIS representative?  If so, that was most likely your MRIS CAM.  There are four of us who manage various boards throughout the Mid-Atlantic area.  I cover BRAR, DAAR, GPAAR, NVAR, PHBR and PWAR.  Since it’s the month where we stop and give thanks to all that we have, I would like to offer my short list of thanks.  While I am always very thankful for my family and many friends, the following are some MRIS tools for which I am most thankful.    

  1. I am thankful for the Matrix Speedbar.  By far my favorite Matrix feature to date.  The speedbar allows agents to search for listings and revise search results by using shortcut codes.  The next time you run a search, look at the top of the search results screen and you will see how the speedbar displays your search criteria.     
  2. I am thankful for Matrix Mobile.  I can’t tell you how often I have been asked “when will MRIS develop an app?”  I totally agree that we need one and it’s in the works.  However, we have always had a mobile version of Matrix for use on smartphones and other mobile devices.  Simply go to your browser and type in to search for properties while on the go. 
  3. I am thankful for the Moby safety app.  It tracks your location and sends out silent alerts when you are in danger.  Agents tell me they have downloaded it to stay safe while showing properties. 

Now it’s your turn.  What MRIS products or features are you thankful for and why?

    You are a a huge asset to MRIS and to those of us who use it. No matter how much we think we know about using MRIS, you always teach us all new tricks. Your office trainings are always something my agents look forward to.
