We’re going heavy on the RESO Remix promotion this week, because 1) we need you to register by Sunday, February 28, if you want to get an accurate t-shirt size in your swag bag, 2) our call for presentations is almost over and 3) we just know that you don’t want to miss out on one of our delightful, educational and surprisingly enjoyable conferences.
The sights and sounds of industry standards being created may not necessarily inspire, but the collective wisdom of hundreds of dedicated volunteers serving passionately to enhance the foundation of what modern real estate is built upon? Goosebumps.

Special Five-Part Series on MLS Planning
It’s worth sharing for one more week, because this series was a massive undertaking that should be as widely publicized as possible.
The brokerage cooperative that has served real estate for more than 100 years has never faced more pressure. The path forward is affirmative transparency. If you operate an MLS organization, or if you’re a REALTOR® who’s involved in oversight of your MLS, there’s never been a more complex time to make decisions about the MLS’s future.
The first four segments of the five-part series on MLS planning for 2021 analyzed current trends and methods for supporting participant and consumer access to MLS benefits. The fifth and final segment focuses on when and how we as an industry make decisions to implement mandatory policies for MLSs through the National Association of REALTORS®.
The series, written by RESO CEO Sam DeBord for REALTOR® Magazine, covers the questions that all MLSs should be discussing as the year unfolds.
