You may be seeing broken photo images within listings. There is an intermittent issue that seems to affect some networks/devices. It is affecting a significant number of Paragon MLSs/Boards. Our MLS vendor has multiple departments working on this; with this issue being a high priority.
Bay East has learned that a scammer is targeting vacant listings. An agent was contacted by someone posing as a PG&E employee who asked the agent to tell their client they were delinquent in paying their utility bill and gave bogus instructions on how to pay. Please be cautious if you are contacted by anyone claiming that a client has a delinquent utility bill that must be paid. PG&E has provided more information here.

The feature can be accessed from the menu bar of the Listing Input Form for a current Full, Partial or Subject Property Listing

- Paragon Connect – Contact List: It has been upgraded to support several new features, such as adding a search bar, upgraded filters, streamlining in adding a new contact, the ability to delete multiple contacts, and more.
- Paragon Connect – Compose Email: Contacts can sometimes have more than one email address. The new contact viewer allows you to choose one or more email addresses at a time before you compose the message. You will also find that the email module has been updated. A new layout has been applied to make composing an email easier and more standard
- Paragon Connect – Texting: While using a mobile device, clicking on the phone icon will not only display all available phone numbers, but it will also provide you with a SMS option.
