Paragon Switch Prepared
As you know, key western Canadian real estate boards are preparing to make a switch over to the new Paragon MLS® system in the coming months. We’re working closely with the boards to adapt our system to the change, and we expect a smooth transition without any additional work on your part. We’ll keep you posted as we get closer to the switch.
CREA’s Data Distribution Facility (DDF) is Ready!
Our developers have been working hard on DDF integration and we’re proud to announce that we’ve officially launched DDF integration for RealtyNinja clients! Check out all of the boards that we are currently supporting: www.realtyninja.com/boards

Upcoming Features & Improvements
Better Search Engine Optimization:
As the web and search engines evolve, it’s our job to keep up and make sure your website has all the tools you need to stay ahead. That’s why we’re working with world-class experts and dedicating more resources towards important SEO improvements and features. Stay tuned for more updates on that front.
Better Lead Capture & CRM Integration:
We understand how important it is to capture and convert the traffic on your website. Over the coming months, we’re going to improve the built-in lead generators on your site and add industry-proven methods of capturing more leads. We’re also working hard on integrating the forms on your site with real estate CRM’s such as Follow Up Boss. Keep your eye out for those awesome updates coming soon.
New Mobile-Friendly Themes:
Our designers are in the process of creating the next generation of beautiful REALTOR® website themes that are mobile-first, fully responsive and optimized for every screen out there. We can’t wait to show you once they’re ready. You’ll love it.
New Feature: Navigation Menu Labels
On your RealtyNinja website, you can now set an item in your navigation menu as just a label without a link. This means that it won’t be an actual page, and can act as a top-level category for a set of sub-pages. This can save you time because you won’t have to write content for the top-level page if you don’t want to. Click here to see how it works.
New Feature: Smarter Page Manager
You’ll now find that managing the pages in your RealtyNinja website is easier than ever, because it automatically saves the order as you re-arrange pages.
Our Five Year Anniversary!
We just celebrated the 5th anniversary of launching RealtyNinja! It’s been an amazing journey so far and we have you to thank for that. Cheers to many more years to come!
