RESO is once again conducting elections for the Board of Directors, and this year my seat is up for election and so I’m hopeful you all will vote for me to continue the mission of creating, adopting, and utilizing standards to increase competition and innovation in our industry.
Though much work has already been done, right now is a critical time for RESO to prove the value of real estate standards both in and beyond our industry. We’ve all done a great job of creating and implementing the new data dictionary and Web API, but much work remains to increase utilization of these future-proofing technologies to solve key MLS and broker pain points like overlapping market disorder. Providing a single-feed and single-entry of data are the key problems we’re working to solve, and I hope you’ll support me in my candidacy to continue this important work.
The list of candidates is really impressive this year, with a huge turnout for the one MLS seat available this year. Last year, I advocated for Michael Bustamante and he’s running again this year, so I’ll again reiterate that I think Michael has a great mind, is very collaborative, and has a lot of experience with MLS technology. But all the candidates running for the open MLS seat are really great, so you really can’t go wrong with your vote. I’m just super excited that there is so much interest in RESO from the MLS community!
