Search Operators

To narrow your search using operators, you can use the * to search for everything before or after the asterisk. Here are some examples. We'll use the Subdivision name as an example.


The query 'Park Place*' will result in Park Place I, II, III, IV. It won't return "The Villas at Park Place," which would require the query: '*Park Place.'


If you want results for both, you can use: '*park place,*' which will result in anything before or after "park place" - including The Villas at Park Place or Park Place III.


If you want Park Place I, II, and IV but not Park Place III, you can use the '!' to rule out options like 'Park Place*!, Park Place III' (Separated by a comma).


You can also rule out II and III, but not I and IV like this: 'Park Place*,!Park Place II,!Park Place III'.


Alternatively, you can use it like this: 'Park Place*,!Park Place II*,' because 'Park Place II*' will search for everything, including II, this means III will not be a part of that criteria. The exclamation point ensures exclusion from your search.
