Real Estate Brokers
In 2016 and again early this summer, RESO launched, with the help of the WAV Group, nationwide surveys of Real Estate Brokers to learn more about the challenges that brokerages and their owners face with data management today. Through these surveys, RESO was able to gather incredibly valuable insights and candid feedback about the challenges brokers deal with when trying to ingest and manage MLS data. Full versions of each survey can be found here: 2016 Broker Survey and 2018 Broker Survey.
RESO is especially grateful for the help provided by RESO Ambassadors and their organizations who distributed a survey link to their brokerage clients, members and subscribers.
While these were by no means intended to be scientific surveys, we believe the findings are remarkably valuable as we received broad input from brokers across the U.S., brokerage firms that collectively represents more than 350,000 of real estate agents and brokers.
