So excited to hear that Kevin Hughes is back at it again in the MLS joining BoxMLS as its new Chief Executive Officer! We’ve been watching this company for awhile now and they are doing really interesting things! For those that have not yet heard about BoxMLS it is a new tool to help brokers and agents operate much more effectively across multiple MLS markets at once.
Think of it as a data sharing tool on turbo charge. If an agent operates in more than one MLS region they can now combine all of the information from these multiple markets into one easy to use interface and then create searches, reports and analytics to share with their clients. Pretty cool stuff and yet another way for MLS to solve the problem of overlapping market disorder for their members.
If you haven’t seen it yet, I would highly recommend that you check it out!
Cant wait to see where Kevin takes it from here!
Congratulations Mr. Hughes!
