Discover Software was launched in 2010 by a group of partners with more than 40 years of combined real-estate industry experience. Determined to set new standards for the MLS software marketplace, our goal was simple: raise the bar. We employ this mantra by challenging ourselves to innovate every day, in every corner of the company.
Working together in previous years, Discovers founders deployed and supported over 100 MLS customers nationwide, constantly frustrated by the limitations of the Web 1.0 platform. Beginning in 2008, our team built the Discover MLS application from the ground up, designed for usability, flexibility, high-performance, and low-cost operation. Web 2.0 is about new ways of thinking and interacting, not just new technology, and we embrace both. Think you know MLS software? Think again.
