We’ve taken the public record information from Realist and combined it with the listing information already available in Matrix. This means that in addition to running a general listing search, you can now also search for public records.
Viewing public records can help you gather valuable information for your buyers and sellers. But you can also use a public record search to help you gain new clients by searching Owner Occupied and using your results to print mailing labels for your marketing and farming efforts.

When you click into a property to view the full listing details, you’ll notice the display now has a new tabbed appearance. Learn more about this in our article New Matrix ‘Full Property View’ Brings All the Info to You.
The map on the Public Record search uses the same map and drawing tools, layers, and other functionality you’re familiar with from listing searches. Some new benefits to note include the ability to search public records across more than eight counties at a time, and that public records searches you’ve recently run are included in the Recent Searches dropdown menu located in the top right-hand corner of the screen directly underneath your name.
Market to the Homeowner by Searching Owner Occupied
A great benefit of the new Public Record search form is that you can search by Owner Occupied. Owner Occupied means that the homeowner uses the property as their primary residence. From a marketing and farming perspective, searching for owner-occupied properties can help you make sure you’re only targeted homes where you’ll have a good chance of reaching the homeowner, instead of a tenant. On the flip side, maybe you want to market to tenants with a specific first-time homebuyer message.
Printing Mailing Labels Right From Matrix
Just like you could in Realist, it’s now easy to print mailing
