RESO Workgroups & Committees 

Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Subgroup | April 28, 2021
The first gathering of the CRE Subgroup was an invite-only gathering of players in the commercial real estate space. The chair briefly explained how RESO workgroups operate, went over the history of the Data Dictionary in relation to residential, CRE and other topics, accepted feedback and set goals. Property/listing is what RESO does really well, so we will start with the namespace around the actual listing. | VIEW CALL NOTES
