First Multiple Listing Service (FMLS) and Georgia Multiple Listing Service (GAMLS) are Georgia's largest computer databases of homes for sale, with more than 100,000 listings across the state. Realtors use these databases to market and promote their own listings, and to cooperate with other Realtors.
If a property on the FMLS or GAMLS sells, the Realtor who listed it is compensated with part of the commission. A large majority of real estate transactions are a direct result of the cooperation between agents and brokers through MLS exposure. Having your home in the MLS exposes it to thousands of local real estate agents who otherwise would not have known that your property was for sale and would not have shown it.
Atlanta is one of a few metro areas that has two Services – FMLS is used primarily by "Intown Atlanta" agents (inside the I-285 "LOOP") and GAMLS is used primarily by agents who work outside the city. To ensure maximum exposure for your home, it's imperative that your broker and agent are members of both.
