In the not-so-distant past, multiple listing services were all about providing member brokers with access to information about each other’s listings, and to make offers of compensation to cooperating brokers and agents who could bring a buyer to a sale.

Today, MLSs are trying to add value and generate new revenue by providing software and services to members — including operating public-facing websites. Some brokers want to go back to the way it was, when MLSs stayed out of their business.

Industry leaders will explore whether there’s a middle ground during a Thursday, July 11 panel discussion at Real Estate Connect San Francisco.

Participating in the panel, “Ending the Broker/MLS Standoff,” will be Rebecca Jensen, president and CEO, MLS; Curt Beardsley, vice president of business development, Move Inc.; Helen Hanna Casey, president, Howard Hanna Real Estate Services; Lanny Baker, CEO, Zip Realty; Marilyn Wilson, partner, WAV Group; and David Charron, president and CEO, MRIS.
