“It’s an honor to contribute to this vital initiative,” says Chairman Whitehead. “The resolve to introduce a new type of property search portal for consumers has never been stronger. Now that we have our new Board of Managers and Executive Committee in place, the talented team can advance the portal project.”

John Mosey, Vice Chairman, said, “I am proud to be able to contribute to this initiative. It is a great example of how MLS’s and the broker community can work together to bring some balance back to the industry such that brokers have a new choice in how and where to display their listings.
