MLS Listings Joins RealSmart Group
May 23, 2019
This past Wednesday, our weekly networking group was joined by a team from from our local Multiple Listing Service, MLS Listings. Robert Bustamante, Director of Compliance, and Dave Scalora, Corporate Trainer joined us for a discussion on some recent rule and policy changes to the MLS, as well as some new features in the MLS matrix, the backend dashboard that gives agents access to exclusive tools and market data to help us do our jobs better and more efficiently.
This probably doesn’t sound like the most exciting discussion, but staying on top of the rules and policies that regulate our local MLS is immensely important to Realtors. The MLS is the most powerful marketing tool real estate agents have at their disposal, as it automatically sends your home’s information to all major listings portals (Zillow, Redfin, Realtor.com, etc.) So knowing how use it in order to to maximize your home’s exposure without violating any laws in the process is a key part of the job. That’s why we try to get the MLS Listings Team in for an update at least once a year.
Thanks to Robert & Dave for sharing their time and information!
