BrokerBay Launch Timeline
Now: Get Excited!
Look for updates in Weekly News and the REcolorado Professionals blog. We'll highlight many of the fabulous features in the BrokerBay showing ecosystem designed to streamline workflows and empower agents.
Summer 2021: Ask if Your Office is Registered
Let your managing broker know you want to use BrokerBay. They'll need to submit information to register your office in advance with BrokerBay - this ensures you're on the onboarding list.
Once registered, you can learn more about how your office will use BrokerBay. Attend a sneak peek session, customized for your office by an REcolorado Business Relationship Manager.
Fall 2021: Onboarding your Office
Closer to launch, REcolorado and BrokerBay will follow up to start the onboarding process with your office. Learn how your office will use the powerful features, like the admin dashboard and listing intranet, to simplify showing management. Onboarding will happen office by office.
Fall 2021: Configure Your Listings
Prepare your listings for showings! All active listings will be added to BrokerBay so you can configure showing settings ahead the switch. That way, you'll be ready to accept showings as soon as your office launches BrokerBay.
Fall 2021: Schedule Showings
You'll see the BrokerBay button on listings in REcolorado Matrix and the REcolorado App this fall as offices complete the onboarding process. On you office's launch date, the BrokerBay button will go live on all your listings. Other brokers can request showings on your listing, and you can easily schedule showings on listings using BrokerBay from Matrix and the REcolorado App.

If I use BrokerBay, will I have to change lockbox systems? Will my electronic lockbox integrate with BrokerBay?
BrokerBay has a very strong integration with SentriLock, as well as Supra and MasterLock. BrokerBay is integrated with SentriLock, making it easy for agents to assign lockboxes and codes. Agents won’t have to use multiple systems to manage showings and lockboxes because it is controlled using BrokerBay. To obtain an electronic lockbox, reach out to your local REALTOR association.

Yes, BrokerBay has an iOS and Android mobile app where agents can book and manage showings.
Does BrokerBay include an appointment/call center?

Both offices and individuals will have the option of working with BrokerBay to receive appointment center services if needed through the Live Appointment Desk directly from BrokerBay.
Can I enter showing instructions in BrokerBay?
Just as with ShowingTime today, showing instructions entered into BrokerBay do not sync back to Matrix. You may enter showing instructions in Matrix during listing input if you’d like to add specific instructions to your listing in REcolorado Matrix.
As a buyer’s agent, will I have to track showings in two systems?
Showing services are determined by the listing broker. From Matrix, a buyer's agent can easily connect to the showing service for an individual listing to schedule a showing. As a general best practice, add showings to your personal calendar. BrokerBay offers calendar integrations with Google, Outlook, and iCalendar to simply keep track of scheduled showings. Easily access both BrokerBay and ShowingTime from your REcolorado CONNECT dashboard to manage showings as needed.
