Help your Brokers Improve their Marketing with RESO Standards

by Marilyn Wilson on May 10, 2017

RESOMLSs have done a great job of embracing the Real Estate Standards Organization, the RESO Data Dictionary and RESO Web API. Today, 93% of all REALTORS® in America work with MLSs that are RESO Certified.

RESO volunteers have worked tirelessly for years to get us to this stage.  MLSs have done the hard work to make RESO data standards available to their members and technology partners.

We’re on the cusp of greatness with RESO. While just about all brokers in America can leverage RESO standards on their website, CRM and other marketing solutions now, very few are aware of the power of RESO standards.. Even fewer understand the inherent value of a consistent set of fields across every MLS in America and how that will make it a lot easier for innovative products to launch in even the smallest areas.

What needs to be done? MLSs need to help brokers understand how RESO standardized data delivered via the RESO Web API will help them bring new technology solutions to market and differentiate their messaging, lead gen, market statistics and green marketing.

The industry needs to drive DEMAND for RESO Data Dictionary and Web API based data feeds.  We will know that we have done our job when brokers insist on using RESO data feeds delivered from their local MLS to fuel their IDX and technology solutions.

It’s incumbent upon all of us to promote the advantages and availability of RESO-certified data feeds so that technology companies and brokers can take advantage of this powerful resource.

We would like to encourage every MLS to take advantage of these FREE marketing resources to help increase utilization of RESO certified data.

It’s a very tangible way to demonstrate how much you are looking out for your broker’s best interest. If you can support your technology partners to convert to the RESO Data Dictionary, you will be doing your subscribers a great service.
