Realty Executives is the first real estate franchisor to replace its third-party Multiple Listing Service (MLS) aggregator with a proprietary home listing platform. This new technology eliminates the third-party challenges of incomplete and delayed listing information, ensuring Realty Executives has the most comprehensive, up-to-date and consistent home listings available.
Needing access to hundreds of separate MLS feeds, international real estate companies have had to partner with MLS aggregation and standardization companies in order to provide a comprehensive list of homes for sale. However, these listings are often incomplete because of broken feeds third-party vendors have not addressed. Realty Executives decided to connect directly to over 70 MLS feeds in order to provide their brokers, agents and customers access to the most thorough and up-to-date listings available.
