North Carolina Real Estate Search Tools

Posted by allenl

Hello and welcome to our website and first official blog post! We are Dream Maker Properties, LLC, an innovative real estate brokerage with operations in Chapel Hill and Elkin, NC. We would be delighted to be your partner in North Carolina Real Estate.  In our blog, we will be writing about North Carolina Real Estate topics through the lens of  locals with a global perspective.

To begin, we’d like to offer the observation that while personal service remains priceless in our rapidly changing real estate environment, embracing the latest technological advances is also critical to ensure that the best opportunities can be seized.

As part of our commitment to this type of innovation, we are quite proud to be the first North Carolina real estate firm to bring you the search capabilities of Carolina Data Share (CDS). North Carolina’s six largest real estate Multiple Listing Services from the mountains to the coast have launched a program to share listing information for display on brokerage websites. CDS aggregates Multiple Listing Service (MLS) listing information into a single database creating the largest selection of active real-estate listing information available in our state. As a Buyer, you benefit by having access to the most comprehensive source of listings, and as a seller, you will enjoy the widest possible exposure for your property with the ability to be advertised on REALTOR® web sites across North Carolina.

The MLSs actively involved in the CDS project are:

Additional MLSs will be added throughout 2010.

So, to check out over 100,000 real estate listings from the North Carolina Mountains to Wilmington area beaches, just visit our website, On the right side of any page (including this one!), you will see a map of North Carolina with a hot link above that says “Search NC Mountains to Coast”. Simply click this link and a map will appear where you can refine your search to the area and type of property you are seeking. You can also save your searches, email listings to friends and family, and create a Favorites folder to return to as you wish.

We’d love to hear what you think, so please post your comments and let us know how we can help. Happy property hunting!
