PropertyGuys.com® is an advertising and marketing firm which charges fees to access their services. http://propertyguys.com/site/legal

(They also sell franchises - http://propertyguysfranchise.com/)

The ability to place real property on the Moncton MLS System® is available only to people who first are licensed by the New Brunswick Minister of Justice, Consumer Affairs Division and who second become members.
A member may place a property on the Moncton MLS System® even if the property is also being advertised on PropertyGuys.com®. If the property sells while on the Moncton MLS System®, the sale is reported and recorded in the system.

Sometimes a licensee representing a buyer client is involved in the sale of a property that is advertised on PropertyGuys.com®, but is not on the Moncton MLS System®. In this case, even though the licensed member was involved in the sale, the sale would not be recorded in the MLS System®.
I gotcha...so in other words if PropertyGuys was gaining market share every year than that could possibly change the number on your chart a bit. (aka possibly flat home sales instead of a slight decline since 2010). That said the first few months of the year don't tell the whole story as most homes are sold in the summer if I'm not mistaken.
