I just love it when technology truly helps make it easier for MLSs and brokers to deploy great technologies for consumers!  Today, FBS and Solid Earth are announcing a really exciting partnership that will make it MUCH easier for MLSs to help their brokers generate tons of leads and listing of exposure without spending ANY additional dollars!

The Spark API makes it really easy to plug in LIVE MLS listing information into a highly attractive, fully functional engaging MLS consumer site. The Spring platform is fully compliant with Fair Display Guidelines, making these websites fully broker-friendly and really engaging for consumers looking for property.  Many MLSs are challenged to find a website provider that truly understands the unique requirements of an MLS website and also has the depth of data expertise to deliver comprehensive, fresh and accurate MLS data consistently.
