WAV Group would like to congratulate BHHS and Constellation1 on the announcement of their agreement with Constellation1 to aggregate property data for the international consumer website for the nation’s largest brokerage.
As you may recall, Constellation acquired Real Estate Digital (RED) a few years ago. RED powered a number of BHHS company owned firms and franchise firms. The announcement appears to expand the data aggregation service agreement to cover the entire BHHS enterprise. Constellation has been doing national data aggregation to hydrate their dozens of broker and agent software applications for many years.
Foreign Language is new to me. We always focused on Gabriels, Immobel, and Proxio for companies who needed language translation. This is a “good to know.”
Constellation1 jumped into the data aggregation services just as Wolfnet was exiting. Glad to have them on board!
