FLEX UPDATE

mlsparallelperiod01

Both the California Desert Association of REALTORS® and the Palm Springs Regional Association of REALTORS® have agreed to change the FLEX MLS live date to Monday, September 16, 2019. While CDAR and FLEX are prepared for this change, our third party vendors have let us know that they will not be ready for the August 5th live date. As we want to ensure that both brokers' and agents' websites work as intended with IDX links when FLEX MLS goes live, we have decided to push back the live date to allow vendors additional time to be ready for this change.

You will continue to use Rapattoni for all of your day-to-day business and operations, including entering listings and updating contact information, until the new go live date.We will update you as we continue along this process, including the rollout schedule, upcoming FLEX trainings, and all other information you will need to know.

We thank you, our members, for your patience and understanding as we make the changeover to the FLEX MLS system as seamless as possible.

The 5th Annual Gregg D. Spierling Memorial Golf Tournament

2019gsgt web1

The Fifth Annual Gregg D. Spierling Memorial Golf Tournament has its date - Monday, May 6, 2019! Join us for golf, prizes, fun and more at the Indian Wells Country Club in Indian Wells, CA. Check-in starts at 11 AM and a Shotgun Start of 12:30 PM, with the dinner and awards ceremony following the field of play.

Now in its fifth year, the tournament is in memory of the late Gregg D. Spierling, a longtime CDAR affiliate member who was very involved in the annual CDAR golf tournament. It's a day where members can golf for fun or to win coveted prizes in the early afternoon, and then retire to the clubhouse for an amazing dinner and awards ceremony in the evening. This year's tournament will be played at the Indian Wells Country Club. For the first time ever, the tournament will be played on the Cove Course! It's an exciting development and we are thrilled to bring you the opportunity to play on a brand new course! 

The funds raised from the Gregg D. Spierling Golf Tournament supports the CDAR Scholarship Fund. Every year, CDAR awards scholarships to high school seniors from around the Coachella Valley. Raising money during the tournament plays a big part in allowing CDAR to give back to the community. We can only do that with the continued support of our members and those that help out with events just like this, and we invite you to participate in this year's tournament, especially if it's your first time! It's a wonderful event that you won't soon forget!
