Real Estate Boards Benefit from MLS Data Consolidation

inman.gifAnne St. Dennis, manager of industry relations, communications and public affairs for the Greater Montreal Real Estate Board, was recently interviewed on InmanTV.

During the interview, Anne provides insight into how real estate boards can benefit by working together to consolidate their MLS systems.

She discusses her experience in consolidating data standards in the province of Quebec, leading to improved services among board members.

In reference to mls.ca, she dispels the myth that Canada has a national MLS, describing the website as a property marketing and consumer search site.

A true MLS is one which is used for use solely for real estate board members (i.e. brokers and sales reps).

Services of an MLS include tools that help real estate agents, such as:

  • Advanced search tools for researching sales history
  • Statistical reporting
  • Agent website solutions
  • Personalized hotsheets
  • E-mail functions for sending CMAs, online reports and presentations
  • Other customizable reports
