Mining the MLS brain trust

CMLS CEO lays out priorities for the year
  • The Council of Multiple Listing Services is focusing on sharing ideas between members this year through a new website and education and training.
  • When it comes to trends like MLS consolidation and big initiatives like Upstream, CMLS seeks to inform its members rather than prescribe specific actions. But CMLS will be submitting recommendations to NAR this year.
  • Some MLS execs will get the chance to present a big idea at CMLS's conference in the fall and CMLS will decide whether to adopt the idea and carry it through.

The MLS industry is in a state of transition. With new initiatives coming down the pike that could affect MLSs nationwide, priorities for the Council of Multiple Listing Services (CMLS) this year come down to one central idea: mining the MLS brain trust.
