Q: My buyer wants a 2 or 3+ garage. When I enter that in Paragon, I get no matches. Why?
A:If you are asking for multiple features within the same feature group (i.e. Garage), you need to add your choices in right column marked "Must Have 1 or More".
Q:How can I print 75 listings at once?
A:Once your 75 matches are loaded on the screen, click on the Print + button to choose the type of report you want to print. You may pick different reports for the same property if desired. As printing 75 listings at a time uses a lot of paper and toner, you may want to try to view them on the screen first and then select the ones you really want to print. A check box is located near the photo on each view.
Q:When searching by address in Tax, 0 matches are found. Why?
A:Some of the municipalities we get data from do not include the property address in their records. Try Parcel number or Owner Name.

A: You must fax (608.240.2801) or email firstname.lastname@example.org the MLS with changes to your member information.
Q: Are there any written user manuals for Paragon?
