GrowthZone provides the ability to sync the financial record to NRDS. The Financial record is used by Primary Local POEs, Primary State associations, as well as Secondary local and state associations to store members’ dues payment records. Other POEs can view this information online in NRDS so it can be very helpful as members transfer their primary membership for the new association to quickly check online to see if the member has paid their dues.

Some states require that their local POEs update this information in NRDS, many do not. NAR itself does not require this record nor is it used by NAR, however, you should check the bylaws for your state.

*National dues can only be sent once a year (associations are not supposed to allow them to be paid monthly and NRDS will not accept monthly reported National dues payments), on the date they are paid.

*The key for a Financial records, in NRDS, is the Member ID, Incurring Member ID, Payment Type, Billing Year, Dues Paid Date, Amount and Sign (ie. you can have two records with same member ID, Payment Type, Billing Year, Dues Paid Date and Amount as long as one Amount is ‘positive’ (45.00) and one is ‘negative’ (-45.00).

GrowthZone's Real Estate Edition provides features required by most National Association of REALTORs Associations for managing their real estate data. The features include an additional tab on contact records to store real estate data, data sync management, and other necessary resources. The software supports integration to NRDS, various MLS, and Lock-box solutions.

Upon installation of the software, you will work with your on-boarding project manager to configure the settings necessary to seamlessly integrate to the various solutions.

Contents

NRDS Integration


The GrowthZone integration with the National Association of REALTORS’ NRDS database provides association staff an easy way to manage their contacts’ NRDS data. Select data entered or changed in GrowthZone is automatically pushed to NRDS, thereby updating agent and office records in NRDS. Data is pushed every ten minutes to ensure your records in NRDS are always up to date.

IMPORTANT Transfers are NOT done in GrowthZone. If a transfer is needed, this must be done in NRDS

NRDS Integration Initial Setup


Upon installation of the software, you will work with your on-boarding project manager to configure the settings necessary to seamlessly integrate to NRDS.

Link NRDS, MLS, Lockbox Status to Membership Status (COMING SOON)


Automatically deactivating or reactivating a member’s access to related real estate services (MLS, Lockbox, NRDS) based on their membership status with your association provides significant time savings for your staff. During initial configuration of your system you can set the rules to be applied to NRDS, MLS and Lockbox status, based on a change on an agent's membership status. When a membership is suspended, dropped, or reactivated, the system will reference these settings to adjust real estate service settings accordingly. NOTE: Prior to setting up this automation, you should have completed all integration setup for your MLS, Lock Box, and NRDS. Additionally, this step should be performed after your membership types have been created.

  4. Select the Membership Type to which you wish to apply rules.
  5. For each service, select the rule to be applied when the selected membership type is:
    • Suspended
    • Reactivated
    • Terminated
    Note: The choices available will be dependent on your service provider, and you do not have to set rules for all providers. In the example below, the REALTOR® membership will set the NRDS status to Inactive when the membership is dropped, Active when the membership is reactivated, and make no change when the membership is suspended. For all other services, there is no automated change.

NRDS - Working with Offices


Although Offices are not "members" of the Realtor organization (the Realtor association is an individual member organization), the Office record must exist because each member must be linked to an office. This follows how licensure works in each state. Also, the office name, address, phone, etc is stored once in the office record so if an office changes the POE does not have to change that information in every agent record.

The POE for the Primary association of the Office can add or change an office for that association:

  • Add tells NRDS to Add the record. If NRDS finds an office record already exists with the same Office ID it will process the Add as a Change without the necessity of sending the record again. There is one exception to this rule: if the Office Name in the Add is different than the Office Name in the existing record then NRDS will reject the record and require that the record be sent as a Change rather than an Add.
  • Change tells NRDS to Change the record. If NRDS finds that an office record does not already exist by checking the Office ID it will process the Change as an Add without the necessity of sending another record.

NRDS recommends the following process for handling this situation:

  1. Add the office using the NRDS ID of one of your staff members as the Office DR NRDS ID.
  2. Add the agent that will become the DR for the office, and sync to NRDS.

Search NRDS Database for an Agent

Best practice when working with your agents is to first search the NRDS database to verify whether a record exists for the agent. By searching the database, you ensure that there is no duplication of records. Additionally, by searching NRDS you can determine if the member is active in NRDS at another Association and they will need to add in their Association as the secondary.

  1. For the desired agent, click the Real Estate tab.
    Search agent.jpg
  2. Click the Search NRDS/Add Member button.
    Search add member.jpg
  3. Enter search criteria. Adding more information to your search criteria can help increase the accuracy and speed of the search results that will display. You may search on any combination of fields with the exception of the First Name only, Member Office State only, and RE License only.
  4. Click Search NRDS. If results are found, they will be displayed on screen.
  • If this is a new agent (has not had a NAR membership previously), and you are the POE, no matching agent should be found. Click the Create New button to add the new agent to the NRDS database. See Add an Agent (Primary).
  • If a matching agent is found in NRDS, and you are not the POE enter this agent as a secondary record. See Add an Agent - Secondary.
  • If a matching agent is found in NRDS, but is inactive. Do NOT sync the agent with NRDS. You will need to go to the NRDS database and setup the agent appropriately.

One Row.png

NOTE: When adding an agent, if NRDS finds a member record already exists with the same Member ID or License it will process the Add as a Change without the necessity of sending another record. There are two exceptions to this rule: if the Name in the add is different than the Name in the existing record, if the License in the add is different from the License in the existing record. Then NRDS will reject the record and require that the record be sent as a Change rather than an Add. Review the Event Log to ensure that there were no validation errors.
Add Agent (Primary) Additional Information

Additional information about your agents can be tracked in GrowthZone. This information is not required, but if populated will be synchronized to NRDS. NOTE: Only the POE can add/update additional agent information.

  1. For the desired agent, click the Real Estate tab.
  2. Click the Cp orange pencil.jpg in the NRDS Additional Information section. NOTE: If you are NOT the POE for this agent, you are not authorized to add/change the additional information and the Cp orange pencil.jpg will not be available.
    Agent add info.jpg
  3. Enter the desired information. See Agent Data sent to NRDS (Primary) for detailed descriptions of the fields.
  4. Click Done. The updates will be sent to NRDS automatically with no further interaction on your part.
Change/Update an Agent (Primary)

If you are the POE for an agent you can change/update profile and NRDS information via GrowthZone. When Sync With NRDS is enabled on the Real Estate tab, changes to any of the fields described in Agent Data sent to NRDS (Primary) will trigger a synch to NRDS. All fields are sent, not just those that have been changed.

One Row.png

NOTE: NRDS will not process a change on an inactive member (Status of Inactive, Terminated or Deceased). If you want to change the agent’s record you must first change the member back to active or provisional within the NRDS database.

Change an Agent's NRDS Status (Primary)


An agent's status can be updated within GrowthZone, and synchronized to NRDS. Agent statuses include:

  • Active
  • Inactive indicates that the member left voluntarily, in good standing. They may have decided not to renew their membership or may have simply resigned or retired from the business.
  • Terminate indicates that the member was dropped because they did not meet an outstanding duty or obligation. This includes an unfulfilled code of ethics violation, hearing, outstanding arbitration obligation or not taking the COE course. In other words, this member did not leave in good standing. Choosing to simply not renew their membership would not fit in this category.
  • Suspend was added to NRDS for the specific purpose of tracking members who had not taken their COE course by December 31 of each quadrennial. If a member does not take the COE course by December 31, 2012 the association must suspend that member, and by March 1 must terminate the member if they have not taken the course. Therefore there should be no members with status S in NRDS after March 1.
  • Provisional status is available for associations who have adopted the Provisional bylaw. It allows you to enter a member into NRDS with a Member Type of REALTOR®/REALTOR® Associate and a Status of Provisional even before they have met all the requirements for orientation, etc. NAR will provide all services to these members (magazines, realtor.org, etc.) as they are considered REALTORS®/REALTOR® Associates with all rights and privileges.

Any update to the agent's status will trigger a CHANGE transaction to NRDS. To update an agent's NRDS status:

  1. Select the agent's Real Estate tab.
    NRDS agent.jpg
  2. Click the Cp orange pencil.jpg in the NRDS Information section. NOTE: If you are NOT the POE for this agent, you are not authorized to change this information and the Cp orange pencil.jpg will not be available.
    Agent NRDS Info.jpg
  3. Ensure that Sync With NRDS check-box is selected.
  4. Select the desired Status from the list.
  5. Click Done.

Once you have saved, a change transaction is triggered. All fields described in Agent Data sent to NRDS (Primary) will be sent to NRDS within ten minutes, no additional interaction is required on your part.

Secondary Agent Records


The Agent Secondary record is used to store supplemental, or secondary records for a member. A member is in NRDS only once with one NRDS ID but you can link many secondary records to one member. The secondary record is used to indicate a member’s secondary associations, secondary offices, secondary licenses, etc. The Secondary record allows you to define additional relationships this agent may have to other offices, within an office, or other associations. There is no limit on the number of supplemental records attached to a member. Best practice when adding a secondary record, if the secondary record in NOT a secondary record for an agent for which you are POE, is to search NRDS to bring back data from NRDS for the record.

Data Sent to NRDS for Secondary Agent Records


The information below is sent to NRDS for secondary records. During synchronization All information is sent, but note the fields that are required. The data you enter will be dependent on the type of secondary record you are sending.

Field Name Description Data format Required
Real Estate Tab
NRDS ID The member's unique 9-digit NRDS ID. The member must exist in NRDS and be an active member in order to add a secondary record. 9 Numeric X

If you are using this Supplemental record to indicate a member’s Secondary association, additional License, etc. and the Office is still the same as the one in their core Member record, select the same office id from the list. If you are using this Supplemental record to indicate another Office where this member is affiliated, enter the other office ID. All offices to which the agent is associated in your GrowthZone database will be available for selection. 9 Numeric X
Type Required. Use this Supplemental record to indicate that the member has a different Member Type (usually in another Office or another Association).

4 Alpha X
License The Secondary record can be used to indicate that the member has a different License Number (usually in another Office or another Association). You will be able to select a license from the list, or add a new license on the fly. Drop-down Choice  
Status Required. Use this field to indicate the Status of the Secondary record. For example, you set up a supplemental record to indicate the member worked at another Office.

NRDS Education Records


Every 4 years, in a set cycle, every Realtor and Realtor Associate must take the NAR Code of Ethics course. This Education record can be added by any POE. They do not have to have a primary or secondary relationship with the member. Because members could take an education course at any association, this is the one record that can be added by any POE to any member. GrowthZone currently provides the ability to track agent's Code of Ethics (COE) training. Synchronization of the education records is made to NRDS within 10 minutes of the addition or update of the records.

Data sent to NRDS for Code of Ethics


The table below describes the Code of Ethics fields that are sent to NRDS.

Field Name Description Format Required
NRDS ID The 9-digit unique member ID of the member. Note: The Member must be active (A or P) or Suspended (S).  9 Numeric  X
Education Course Code Unique course code assigned by the sponsoring or licensing association. Once the Group Code has been selected, use this field to enter the specific course code.  
COE Course: For the Code of Ethics course, this should always be COEC. If the POE is entering a new member orientation COE course, it should be COEN
Drop-down choice X
Education Course Number Assigned by the sponsoring or licensing Association.

COE Course: If this is for a COE course, it should always be the year followed by the cycle. 
If the course was in 2012 for Cycle 3, it should be 2012C3. If the course was in 2013 for Cycle 4, it should be 2013C4, etc. 
Several POE reports reply on the Course Number following these standards so always be sure to use this format for the COE course.   

NOTE: if entering the course for new members, using the year as the Course Number is acceptable.
15 Alpha X
Ethics Training Date Date course was completed. For one day courses, use this field for the course date.  COE Course: For the COE course, this should be the date they completed the course. 8 Date  X

NRDS Financial Record (COMING SOON)


GrowthZone provides the ability to sync the financial record to NRDS. The Financial record is used by Primary Local POEs, Primary State associations, as well as Secondary local and state associations to store members’ dues payment records. Other POEs can view this information online in NRDS so it can be very helpful as members transfer their primary membership for the new association to quickly check online to see if the member has paid their dues.
Some states require that their local POEs update this information in NRDS, many do not. NAR itself does not require this record nor is it used by NAR, however, you should check the bylaws for your state.

Financial Record Business Rules


  • National dues can only be sent once a year (associations are not supposed to allow them to be paid monthly and NRDS will not accept monthly reported National dues payments), on the date they are paid. Other dues, such as state and local, can be sent monthly, quarterly, or yearly, on the date they are paid.
  • GrowthZone will track if dues are paid late, and report to NRDS accordingly.
  • You cannot change or delete an existing Financial record. Similar to an accounting general ledger entry, once it is posted you cannot delete it. You can only add an adjusting entry.
  • The key for a Financial records, in NRDS, is the Member ID, Incurring Member ID, Payment Type, Billing Year, Dues Paid Date, Amount and Sign (ie. you can have two records with same member ID, Payment Type, Billing Year, Dues Paid Date and Amount as long as one Amount is ‘positive’ (45.00) and one is ‘negative’ (-45.00). NRDS will check for duplicates by looking at a combination of these fields.
  • Adjusting Entry: to add an adjusting entry you would add a financial record with the same Member ID, Incurring Member ID, Payment Type and Billing Year as the original entry. In the Payment Amount field you would have a – (minus sign) in front of the amount you are adjusting. The Dues Paid Date can be different than or the same as the original Dues Paid Date.
  • NRDS will not accept a Financial record for an inactive member. The member’s status must be A, P or S in NRDS. NRDS will also check that the Office ID is an active office in NRDS and that the member is a member of the association in the Primary Association ID field.

NAR E-Commerce


GrowthZone provides integration with NAR E-Commerce. Through this integration you can:

  • Easily handle splits of membership dues. You will have the ability to indicate distribution parameters and NAR will send along those amounts to state and national appropriately.
  • Store cards in the back office for future use and allow your members to store cards via the Info Hub.
  • Setup autopay for recurring purchases on stored cards.
  • Process refunds through the GrowthZone backoffice
  • Handle declined charges and receive notification of card processing failures.

NAR E-Commerce Initial Setup


The setup of the E-Commerce payment processing account in the GrowthZone software will be done by GrowthZone. The following pieces of information will be needed for setup:

  • Association ID
  • User ID
  • Password
  • Credit cards that you accept.

NAR E-Commerce Initial Setup - Dues Split


If you wish to setup dues splits, goods/services will need to be created for each share of a membership’s dues. For example, you will need a fee item called something like “Membership Dues - NAR” to account for the amount of the membership that should be sent to National. GrowthZone will assist you in the initial setup of Good/Services and in configuring the appropriate dues split.

General Setup/Process:

  • Setup good/services for local, state, and national.
  • Configure which good/services on a membership type go to state, national, association.
  • When a payment is processed, distribution parameters are sent to NAR E-Commerce.
Nar split settings 2020.jpg

IMPORTANT

  • GrowthZone only supports splits at the time of payment. You are unable to use E-Commerce to process monthly membership payments and then send a lump sum annually to state and national.
  • E-Commerce will support up to 6 destination bank accounts, if just one account is being used, the splits will not need to be configured.
  • GrowthZone supports creating refunds for memberships that include splits. However, the refund will auto-debit ALL of the refunded amount from the local association. This is because NAR does not support auto-debiting other associations; it will be up to the local association to contact the others (e.g. State and Nat’l) to recoup those funds. Questions/Concerns should be directed to NAR.
  • GrowthZone does not charge additional transaction fees on top of NAR’s fees. For questions about rates and fees, please contact NAR.
  • There are many specific rules & regulations for E-Commerce. Please contact NAR with questions.

NOTE: If changes are required after initial setup of the splits, contact gzsuppport@growthzone.com

NAR E-Commerce Storing Credit Cards


Credit cards to be used by your members can be stored from the back-office, or by your members in the Info Hub.

    • Select Yes/No for Do you have a NRDS ID. If Yes is selected, the NRDS information for the member will be automatically populated.
    • Select the Card Type.

NAR E-Commerce Assign Store Card to Recurring Fees


If you or your member has stored a credit card, and you wish to assign the card to the members recurring fees, see Apply Store Cards to Recurring Fees. When generating your invoices for upcoming billing, the member's card will be automatically charged. See Manage Invoices for Upcoming Billing.

NAR E-Commerce Processing Refunds


If needed, you can easily process refunds from your GrowthZone software. See Refund a Payment.

One Row.png

IMPORTANT: Contractually, the E-commerce network will not allow one association to automatically debit the bank account of another association. For example, the ABC Local Association cannot initiate an E-Commerce transaction that is going to debit the bank account of the XYZ State Association, or the National Association. So if the original transaction sent by the local association was used to distribute dues payments among the local, state and national, the local association using this request can only debit their own bank accounts.

NAR E-Commerce provides the following best practice:

The original Purchase totaled $350. The distribution was $84 to National, $70 to state, and $196 to local. The local association (the original Association ID in the Purchase) could use this transaction to refund the member’s credit card the $350 total. The total will all come out of the local association’s bank. We recommend that the local contact their state and national association first to see if those two entities will agree to this refund. If they agree, then the state and national could then send an EFT transfer for the original net amount they received to the local’s bank account who could then use this transaction to refund the member’s credit card in total from the local association’s bank account. This is one way to credit the member’s credit card in whole rather than crediting the member’s credit card for just the local amount and then the local writes the member a check once the local receives the state and national dues back from those two entities.

View NAR E-Commerce Payments


The Payment Processing Report can be used to view payments over a selected date range. See Payment Processing Report.


IMPORTANT: The Payment Processing Report will provide you with the grand totals of your payments processed through NAR Ecommerce. You will need to use the statement received from NAR Ecommerce to find the fees for those charges, and update your accounting software appropriately.

MLS Integration


GrowthZone offers a data integration with various MLS Solutions. This is a push-type integration which sends changes to contact information from GrowthZone to MRED’s MLS vendor, DynaConnections. The sync happens (when there are contact info changes) around 4 times hourly between the hours of 8 am (CST) and 8pm (CST), seven days a week. The purpose of the integration to an MLS is to establish an account for the member, to establish the member's access level within the MLS (defined by the agent's Member Type, and to track the member's status.

Currently, GrowthZone integrates to MRED and Corelogic. Black Knight coming soon.

MRED Integration


MRED Integration - Initial Setup


On initial installation of your software, GrowthZone will configure the initial connection to MRED. You will then be able to manage your agent's participation in MLS from the agent's Real Estate tab. GrowthZone will sync to MRED any additions or changes made to the MLS information on this tab. Records are synchronized every hour. MRED Office and Agent Files created, are zipped into one file and sent every hour to the FTP site.

Initial setup involves providing the FTP URL, Path, User Name and Password. This information is provided by MRED.

Initial Setup Considerations:

  • You have the option to enable Use Membership To Determine MLS Status. Selecting this option will automate updates to MLS status. For example, if you drop an agent, who has an active MLS status, the status will automatically be updated to Inactive. Important: this is designed to work when your members have only one membership.
  • You will decide if you wish to use the MLS ID Generator. If you select this option, a "Get MLS ID" button is available to you when assigning your MLS ID's. Enabling this option will prevent duplication of IDs.

MRED - Working with Agents

LockBox Integration


SentriLock


GrowthZone offers a data integration with SentriLock’s lockbox solution. The purpose of the synchronization to Sentri-lock is to activate an account for an office or agent, and define the security level afforded that office or agent. The sync happens in real time with updates appearing SentriLock in a matter of minutes. On the Real Estate tab of a contact, there is a "Sync with Lockbox" checkbox that needs to be ticked in order for the system to recognize the sync option. When enabled, GrowthZone will send updates to SentriLock whenever contact information is updated or entered new.

SentriLock - Synchronization Timing


Once SentriLock sync is enabled, updates are sent via API every 5 minutes.

SentriLock - Initial Integration Setup


The GrowthZone team will setup initial integration to SentriLock, with your input. During this process you will decide the following:

  • What to use for the Lockbox Office Id Source: You will choose from NRDS ID, MLS ID or Custom. If NRDS or MLS are selected, the system will automatically use these ID’s and prompt you if these ID’s are not set. If you select Custom, you will populate your own unique ID each time you activate an agent or office with SentriLock.
  • What to use for the Lockbox User Name Source: You will choose from NRDS ID, MLS ID or Custom. If NRDS or MLS are selected, the system will automatically use these ID’s and prompt you if these ID’s are not set. If you select Custom, you will populate your own unique ID each time you activate an agent or office with SentriLock.
  • What to use for the Lockbox External Id Source: You will choose NRDS ID, MLS ID or Custom. If NRDS or MLS are selected, the system will automatically use these ID’s and prompt you if these ID’s are not set. If you select Custom, you will populate your own unique ID each time you activate an agent or office with SentriLock.
  • Will you “Use Membership Status To Determine Lockbox Status”: If you choose this option, LockBox Member Status will automatically be updated, based on the status of the membership with your association. For example, if an agent has an active membership with your association, and a valid SentriLock status, when you drop that member, the SentriLock status will automatically be updated to Terminated.
