Getting Started

zBest Property Manager™ uses Umbraco's CMS framework for easy desiging and development. Due to it's complexity, the download is a complete package and not an installable add on via Umbraco's back office. zBest Property Manager™ opens in Development Mode with development data so that you can begin coding right away!

The login for the backoffice is:

  • Login: partners@zbestdata.com
  • Password: UmbracoRocks1!

What you need to know about getting MLS data

Real Estate is data driven industry who's listing data is maintained and regulated by the MLS's. Each MLS is independent of one other, with each having their own set rules, requirements and Board of Directors

Though listings can be hand entered, most agent's are going to need their listings provided to them by their MLS. Data is delivered by one of 2 processes . . . known as RETS or MATRIX. All processing of MLS data is managed by zBest Data and delivered to zBest Property Manager™ via API. Before access to MLS data can be granted, each agent must first get approval from their MLS(this is a requriement by the MLS's, not zBest Data). Depending upon the MLS, getting approval can take anywhere from a day to a couple weeks. No worries however! We will help you with this process to get their data up and running as a soon as possible.
