What’s New In 2023

CREA DDF Connection Mechanism Upgraded

All regions feeding via CREA DDF (Kelowna, Ottawa, Penticton etc.) had the connection mechanisms upgraded to comply with better server-to-server encryption as per industry standards. This was in preparation of our major hardware upgrades coming in 2024.

Virtual Tours, Timezone And Address Bugs Fixed

Wrong or missing virtual tour URLs in some board feeds were repaired, and photo import issues related to East Coast time zones were resolved on all CREA DDF feeds. Addresses with unusual street names missing from the Edmonton MLS® were resolved.

Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island Bugs Fixed

Some commercial listings with oddball listing types in the Lower Mainland feed, and residential listings with odd city labels on Vancouver Island, were not syncing well. CREA DDF feed of listings without photos had display bugs too. All were resolved.

What’s New In 2022

Victoria & Vancouver Island (BC) MLS® Feeds Improved

We upgraded our Victoria & Vancouver Island (VIVA) feed to add commercial listings to our Reciprocity feed, giving our clients more options to show off their inventory online. VIVA is the merged feed for both Victoria & Vancouver Island.

AIR (SOREB + OMREB) Listing Filters Improved

Listings for beautiful lakefront properties in the Okanagan area can now be showcased better. By enabling a Waterfront property filter for the Kelowna, Penticton, Naramata, Osoyoos & region listings, our agents can add more visibility when showcasing the most sought after properties for sale.

Core Code Upgrades for IDX Feeds Across Canada

To adhere to constantly updating security & connection standards, we started numerous replacements of core connection modules as well as the photo fetch & store mechanism. We are also performing countless bug fixes, tweaks & cleanups.

What’s New In 2021

Okanagan Region MLS® Feeds Merged

Following the merger of OMREB & SOREB, the MLS® feeds were merged on our cloud system letting the Realtors® in the area sync all residential & commercial listings from Revelstoke, Kelowna, Shuswap, Penticton, Osoyoos etc. on their websites!

Kamloops (KADREA) MLS® Reciprocity Re-Built

The IDX feed was upgraded to modern RETS standard by the real estate board in Kamloops. We re-built our MLS® Reciprocity for the Kamloops/Merritt area listings to the newest standards, offering more frequent listings sync & faster photo processing.

Photo Processing & data modules Overhauled

The API module for our MLS® integrated websites was overhauled to a new file exchage system. The photo processing module was replaced with the latest graphics module. To our Realtors®, this means faster listing & photo sync throughout!

What’s New In 2020

Vancouver Island Boards Merged

The MLS® reciprocity feeds of Victoria Real Estate Board (VREB) & Vancouver Island Real Estate Board(VIREB) has finally merged into one, giving Realtors® on the island to cross-advertise listings from Victoria to Tofino without restrictions.

Photo distribution got even faster on Brixwork. CREA DDF provisioned URLs for photos are directly utilized without secondary processing. This upgrade was made possible by CREA’s feed moving to Cloudfront by AWS, just like Brixwork has been doing for years.
