Friday, October 7th, 2011


If you have any questions about Kurio or need help getting set up, call the Help Desk at 604.730.3020.

Members can now access comprehensive MLS® listing data and search capabilities from their mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, thanks to a new Board service called Kurio.

Kurio is a mobile website built to deliver MLXchange data to members on the go. It is available to members at no cost, and is compatible with all of the major smartphones and mobile devices.

The website was launched on Monday, October 3. To access Kurio, members must visit the Kurio website,, and complete a one-time registration form. From there, members can login using their regular MLXchange ID and password.

“The ability to bring fresh MLXchange data to REALTORS® in the field who use mobile devices represents another service enhancement that puts our members at the edge of real estate technology,” said Rosario Setticasi, Board president. “We are happy to offer this service to members at no additional cost.”

Designed to be an all-in-one mobile tool for REALTORS®, Kurio allows members out in the field to complete many of the day-to-day tasks they would normally do using a personal computer. It was created with a web 2.0 graphical interface specifically designed for mobile devices with internet access and web browsing capabilities.

Kurio stays connected to live MLXchange data to deliver the most current, up-to-date market information. You can access listing details for new listings, which will be displayed similarly to what you would see on MLXchange, including public and REALTOR® remarks. You’ll also be able to access the latest sales information, upcoming open house information, and the most recent price changes.

There is also a detailed searching function that utilizes GPS technology to find places or listings of interest right in your area. You can search by MLS® number, or by more specific details like the number of beds, baths, or even the square footage.

The search function also offers specific information based on the type of search; for example, open house searches include dates and times of upcoming open houses, and searches for properties that have recently sold include the list price and the selling price.

The contacts roster allows you to call or email colleagues directly from their contact record. You will also have the ability to create branded property flyers that can be shared with your clients via email, Facebook, and Twitter.

Based in Maple Ridge, Kurio is a company that develops mobile technologies for real estate professionals. This marks their first venture into the Canadian real estate market; there are currently over 300,000 REALTORS® in 35 major US markets using Kurio. It will also be released by other Canadian Boards and Associations later this year.
