When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. That's how many people, companies, and organizations, like the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO), are responding to these uncertain times. Unable to host its standard Spring Tech Summit in New Orleans, the team at RESO came out early with a pivot to create a digital summit version – April 21-23. That's welcoming news, as many folks will tell you RESO is the best-kept secret among all real estate conferences. True, there won’t be a #RESOnola, but I am ready #RESOremote. I need a conference – badly. So, I have blocked my calendar [...]
RESO Broker Advisory Group's workshop last September pushed some hotly debated topics among its members. One subject receiving a fair amount of back-and-forth dialogue was Marilyn Lund's concept of a "TSA-Precheck" program for data consumers requesting access to real estate data.
The early bird registration discount for the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO) Fall Conference in St Louis September 9-12, 2019 ends this Wednesday, July 17. This is a timely reminder of the remarkable value that one of real estate’s leading nonprofit organizations offers.
Perhaps a great unsung feature of the RESO conference is the selection of cool locations. Because of the size of the conference, they are able to accommodate attendees in smaller host cities. RESO Conferences have made me a fan of Kansas City and Milwaukee - who knew?
The evolution of data management standards has been driven by generous contributions of the best minds in real estate technology, shepherded by Jeremy Crawford over the past two years. Today, WAV Group welcomes another great leader to RESO, Sam DeBord. His credentials are outstanding. The RESO announcement is important because MLS systems in America are the platform for data management in real estate. Since its inception, MLSs found their own path to creating data schemas, like data payloads, data fields, and data business rules. As brokers and agents have evolved their application diversity in their business from property search [...]
Telling Your Data Story – Easy Access to RESO’s Organization Unique Identifier with Microsoft Power BI.
I have been working with the Organization Unique Identifier (OUID) data from the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO) for over the last nine months. RESO OUID data combined with other data sets for business analysis is critical for today’s enterprising brokerages. My task was to see how I can make it easy for others to access the RESO OUID and incorporate other data for analysis. The answer – Microsoft Power BI.
CoreLogic shared some good news today. Their Trestle data distribution solution that provides MLSs with RESO compliant web API transmission capabilities was upgraded to Platinum-level certification. I am sure that they will be spreading the good news to their customers at the Council of MLS meetings that start in Orlando, FL tomorrow. Some MLSs who were on the fence about signing up for Trestle cited Platinum-level Web API as their demand. Now CoreLogic can hook them up with the highest standard.
Colette Stevenson is the CEO of Hilton Head MLS in South Carolina, a 42-year-old independent MLS, where she oversees an operation that manages over 20 real estate data services provided to real estate agents and facilitates $3 billion in transactions annually.
Last week I was introduced to a new application while working on a project with a client. The application is Airtable and has changed my view on using the standard spreadsheet and database tools.
The Hilton Head MLS is small, but mighty. They take their job of serving the brokers in their community very seriously.
