- The nation's largest MLS, California Regional MLS, continues to promote its statewide MLS initiative, most recently through a video featuring real estate leaders across the state.
- The MLS has hired a copywriter to assist in the effort.
- Proponents of a statewide MLS say agents and brokers want to be able to help clients looking for homes outside their current MLS boundaries.
“I think that the public still has better access to information than I do as a Realtor,” said Silicon Valley broker Jim Hamilton. Hamilton, who is also a past president of the California Association of Realtors, was one of several real estate leaders who spoke in a video promoting a statewide MLS for the Golden State released last week.
