Documentation for setup/integration

  • retag add tags

We are a web agency that is potentially going to be working with a client who is already a member and has access to paragon.

What I am in search of is documentation on integrating these services into their website. The website is being built on WordPress and there for would like to get documentation for a PHP integration.

Can someone contact me or point me in the right direction to find this?

You will need to get in contact with the agent's MLS to get access. As far as integration, this would require custom coding and potentially hosting your own database. Is the integration going to be done via RETS?

Yes, the integration is going to be one via RETS. We have never implemented it and what I am after is some sort of documentation on how to get up and running with it.

The standards are hosted by RESO ( and are available online as well as in PDF form.

If you want to get up and running, your best bet is to find a plugin or library that will do the heavy lifting of RETS for you. There appear to be several WordPress plugins available, but we cannot vouch for any of them.

An alternative, if you are not adverse to writing code, is to use something like libRETS to wrap the RETS server access in an easy-to-use interface. libRETS is written in C++, but uses SWIG bindings for languages like PHP, Ruby, Python, or .NET.

Also, you may be interested in this similar question: What is the best method of customizing a site using RETS?
