Redfin has converted to the Constellation1 data aggregation service. The two companies have been collaborating on the transition in stealth mode. The Constellation1 managed MLS data is now live on Redfin.com. If you are an MLS providing data services to Redfin and have not gotten a new three-party data application, you probably will soon.

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.
A new war over data management has broken out among America’s largest technology firms, and no clear winner is in sight. To begin, it may be best to level set around what data aggregation is. For brokerage firms or technology companies that leverage MLS data in software, they are pulling MLS data feeds. When you are pulling more than one feed, you are aggregating MLS data. Brokerage firms and software companies that have hired WAV Group to streamline their data aggregation systems know that we have always focused on the three leading firms that have been aggregating MLS data for [...]
OneKey® MLS adds Three Data and Technology Experts to its Board of Managers to help keep REALTORS® relevant and profitable
Gone are the days when decisions can be made over months and even years. To compete effectively against the smart capital entering real estate, MLSs need to learn how to think and act like a technology company. They need to make well-informed decisions quickly with the help of technology innovators that know what it takes to deliver technology that REALTORS® value.
Google continues to enhance the tools available with a G-Suite subscription. My eyebrows frown when I learn an organization’s Marketing or Operation teams are not taking advantage of one of the Business Intelligence (BI) tools like Google Data Studio. Last week, the Data Studio team just released a bunch of new enhancements and training for their G-Suite customers.

Real Estate Agents and Brokers have long been subjected to unfair competition from thrid party listing websites that are able to aggregate listing data across multiple MLS markets. The rules for displaying MLS listings on Agent and Broker websites require the Agent or Broker to be a member of each MLS to acquire the IDX data feed. Progressive thinking among Brokers and MLSs along the Southeastern Seaboard of America led to the creation of the Carolina Data Share or CDS. This service paves the way for a member of any of the participating MLS to enjoy data from all of the [...]
WAV Group had the opportunity to catch up with Constellation leader Tom George to discuss their recent announcement to extend their growth strategy into the real estate industry.
WAV Group would like to congratulate Elm Street Technology for their 5th acquisition this year. In acquiring Outbound Engine, they take the lead in acquisitions and hold the title of the most active private equity backed company in real estate by unit volume of companies acquired this year (Stone Point Capital is the leader by dollar volume).
MoxiWorks Acquires Imprev. Both firms are Seattle-area based. Both have hired and developed a team of exceptionally talented, passionate, and loyal employees. These folks are super nice people whom you enjoy being around.
I am bullish on humanity making the right decisions, but most of all, I am willing to give up certain freedoms in exchange for allowing technology to blossom as a contributor to humanity.
