Estate agents interested in operating multiple listing services in the UK have the opportunity to meet one of the United States’ leading real estate technologists next week.
Rob Larson, chief information officer at the California Regional Multiple Listing Service, will be in central London from 4pm on Thursday December 17 to meet with estate agency companies, software firms, other technologists and potential investors to explore how MLS could grow in the UK.
From January 1 around 900 MLS’s operating under the umbrella of the National Association of Realtors will be adopting an upgraded system which has been created by a team led by Larson.
“We see this as a great opportunity for those interested in bringing greater innovation to the UK, be they technologist, agent or investor to have the opportunity to meet with others in the property industry to discuss how MLS could innovate the UK to a better B2B agent-to-agent platform” explains Trevor Mealham of the Independent Network of Estate Agents.
“INEA has been fortunate enough to have known Rob for some years now and his time in the UK will allow us to open his experience and understanding of US MLS to interested parties in the UK” says Mealham.
The association says Larson’s work - known as the Data Dictionary - will be behind nearly every US residential property sale in the United States from next year onwards.
Those interested in attending the meeting should contact Trevor Mealham on firstname.lastname@example.org.
