By |2018-09-25T10:21:47-07:00September 25th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

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.

RESO sold out its Spring Tech Summit in Denver last week three times, organizers said. Demand by industry tech and business leaders wanting to attend within the last two weeks forced the nonprofit to re-open registration twice until it pushed to capacity. The Real Estate Standards Organization filled the main ballroom to the brim, with just short of 300 people, at the hip Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver. Art Carter, RESO Chair and head of the largest MLS in the nation CRMLS, noted how far the organization had come in the last five years. One of the most vital breakthroughs: [...]

By |2018-04-16T09:15:44-07:00April 16th, 2018|Main category|0 Comments

Homes.com recently put RESO Standards to the test.  What is the real business value of RESO Data Standards?  A new Homes.com Case Study shed some serious light on the subject.  They have proven that moving to standardized data and the RESO Web API is saving them thousands of dollars in development time, allowing them to redeploy that energy to more innovative endeavors. We hear often that “nobody” is asking to leverage RESO data standards in local MLS data feeds yet.  This exciting news is going to change that.

Denver will be my fourth RESO Spring Tech Summit. Compared to many of the RESO leadership, who, like WAV Group, work for companies that are charter members, I’m still a newbie. Even so, RESO conferences have come a long way from the Chicago spring meeting I attended in 2015 at the NAR HQ.

It’s hard to argue that standardized input, distribution and display of real estate information is not the desired path for our industry to follow.
