The Future of MLS is Now

Jim Speer, CEO of New York MLS, is featured in a recent REALTOR® Magazine article announcing the National Association of REALTORS®’ (NAR) support of consolidation of multiple listing services. A recent NAR presidential advisory group looked at the future of MLSs and recommended that NAR actively encourage consolidation and provide support and funding for MLSs that want to join forces. Speer expects additional growth for the newly formed NYMLS and says NAR’s support will help. “It’s a fabulous idea,” Speer says. “There are people who know consolidation would make sense, but they don’t know where to turn.”
