var https = require('https');
var options = {

    res.on('data', function(chunk) {
        body += chunk;
    res.on('end', function() {
        var response = JSON.parse(body);

You're in Good Company

  • We used SimplyRETS to build a recent client project, and the service they're providing made our lives WAY easier! Anyone who has ever dealt with MLS systems before knows how much work it can be to integrate them. With SimplyRETS you do the work once, and can add new systems super quickly. Their customer support was awesome as well, they always answered our questions quickly and did everything they could to help.

  • SimplyRETS got our site to an MVP much more quickly than dealing directly with our local MLS system. I was able to get the basics sorted out in about four hours - after trying to get the correct libraries installed to speak directly the our IDX feeds for four days!

  • SimplyRETS has been a joy to work with. If you're serious about building real estate apps and tools, they are hands down the best. The team is super friendly and happy to answer any questions regarding their API. The documentation is great and the pricing can't be beat!

  • At Voiceter Pro we have created a conversational real estate search engine using the Amazon Alexa voice platform. We use SimplyRETS to find the housing information we need to give back to our users. For a while, the MLS data was a huge thorn in our side and made it incredibly difficult to get buy in from prospective markets, but after using SimplyRETS data is so easy we hardly even think about it anymore. Their geocoding option is also incredibly important since geocoding can be slow and often comes with a lot of restrictions on how you use the data. SimplyRETS is fast, reliable, and allows us to power the future of real estate consumer interactions!

  • SimplyRETS provided us with access to our MLS data. Their API is clean, well-documented, and RESTful API - a real pleasure to work with.

  • Over the years, we have tried numerous systems to try and pull the listings data and RETS feeds to our site. They software was either too hard to work with or their customer service was low grade. With SimplyRETS, we found that not only did they offer a great product, but since we have been with them, have had top notch customer service. If you are a broker, agent, or programmer looking to implement listings data to your website, this company is for you!
