San Dimas, CA; November 9, 2015 – California Regional MLS (CRMLS) has achieved RESO’s Platinum Certification, the highest level of certification offered by the Real Estate Standards Organization for its nationally standardized fields for multiple listing services.

The RESO Data Dictionary serves two main purposes. The primary purpose is to standardize the process by which data is delivered from the MLS system to users of MLS data. By standardizing MLS data delivery, RESO expects to bring improved innovation and accuracy to applications that run on MLS data via RESO’s RETS (Real Estate Transaction Standard). The second purpose of the RESO Dictionary is to standardize search, display, and listing input around the RESO Dictionary.

The CRIB, or California Regional Information Base, is where the RESO Data Dictionary structure is located for CRMLS. CRMLS’s CRIB is a collection of database and application systems used to gather, normalize, and distribute data for CRMLS members. CRMLS delivers its CRIB based data via a RETS service provided by Bridge Interactive Group, LLC.

Art Carter, Chief Executive Officer of CRMLS, states, “We are pleased that our efforts have awarded us the Platinum level certification. We are bringing these changes back into our CoreLogic Matrix system and will soon be adding Black Knight’s Paragon system; also based on the RESO Dictionary. The RESO Dictionary standardization is an important part of our System Of Choice project as it will ensure we provide a consistent experience for our members across the MLS systems and beyond into other ancillary products. For our RETS services, it has been a pleasure working with Pace Davis and Bridge Interactive. Their ability to work with our transformation of the CRIB database was excellent.”
