Experts predict major change for MLSs

More fact than fiction in national MLS predictions, say panelists

NEW YORK — The idea of a national multiple listing service has moved out of the realm of science fiction and into the realm of serious discussion.

"I think it’s only the political constraints and the human constraints that keep that from happening," said David Charron, president and CEO for Metropolitan Regional Information Systems, the largest multiple listing service in the United States. MRIS serves about 55,000 real estate professionals in the Mid-Atlantic region.
