RGV Realty is a member of every Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in the Rio Grande Valley. There are currently three databases for property throughout this area.
- The largest database is the one for Greater McAllen Association of Realtors (GMAR). The bulk of the listings is for Hidalgo County and serves the McAllen-Edinburg-Mission MSA. This area is often referred as the "Upper Valley".
- The next largest database is for the Brownsville-Harlingen MSA. It was named the RGV MLS after the merger of the Brownsville MLS with the Harlingen MLS. Most of the listings are in Cameron County. GMAR choose not to participate in the merger. This area is often called the "Lower Valley".
- Lastly, South Padre Island has its own database. Vacation property on the Texas Coast requires specialized knowledge. The agents that work primarily on the Island have a close working relationship with each other and maintain their own system. Occasionally, you'll see these property listed in the other database.
The Rio Grande Valley has a few agencies like ours that will service the entire metropolitan area. To better serve our clients, we are members of all of them and can assist you with any property found on our website.
