Pro tip: The fields listed in the Listing Input Forms (sometimes called Profile Sheets) replicate the available fields in Flexmls. Studying these forms is a great way to become more familiar with how search terms are labeled and categorized.
If the field you’re looking for is obscure, it might not be included in the Flexmls search fields. Try searching public remarks. Happy searching!
