Hilton Head MLS is an independent, tech-savvy organization focused on the needs of its brokerage community. CEO Colette Stevenson stays on top of technology trends to help the organization’s subscribers take full advantage of the latest ideas in their businesses.

Real estate data standards are one of those important trends. Colette knows that standardized data will make it easier for her brokers to operate in multiple MLS regions and take advantage of emerging technologies from around the country. That’s why Hilton Head MLS is one of the first in the country to require every one of their technology partners to be RESO-compliant.

Being RESO compliant means you must do at least one or more of the following:

Join the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO)
• Attend at least one RESO Conference annually
• Join a RESO Workgroup
• Become RESO Data Dictionary Certified
• Become RESO Web API Certified

Hilton Head MLS is encouraging every real estate technology company to get familiar with RESO. Colette knows that this exposure will help tech companies learn how RESO saves brokers time and money, and allow them deliver better, faster products and services to their agents.

Becoming RESO-compliant can help a technology company launch in multiple markets more quickly. By freeing up time normally spent on mapping of unstandardized data, technology companies can focus on delivering innovative software solutions to brokers and agents.

Why should MLSs embrace RESO?

Standardization significantly reduces the MLS technical support staff time needed to work with technology companies. MLSs can spend more time providing timely service to their brokers instead of troubleshooting data feeds. MLSs enable more broker innovation by making the process of leveraging local MLS information faster and easier.
