If your seller has expressed their desire to not have their property listed on SmartMLS, and thus not benefit from the exposure to our 18,000+ subscribers and their clients, you still must enter the listing in Matrix. However, there is a mechanism during listing input that allows you to designate the listing as a Withhold from MLS listing.
