One Year Later, RLS Syndication Continues to Grow
September 26, 2018
John Banks: One Year In, REBNY’s RLS Syndication A Success
The launch of Syndication at the end of last summer empowered REBNY brokers and salespersons to send residential listings via the RLS to a growing network of local, national, and international consumer websites, centralizing listing data through a single feed. It’s clear from the data that Syndication has been a success...The biggest winner of this program, though, has been the consumer. There are more listings across a wider network and those listings are all consistent thanks to the new consolidated process.
Douglas Wagner: How Broker Collaboration Helps Consumers
While New York brokerage firms had been co-brokering exclusive properties for almost two decades without a centralized listing system, the process has never been better organized or more efficient than it is today with RLS Syndication. As a result, the spirit of cooperation and collaboration between many brokerage firms is at an all-time high...Our Real Estate Board has become a community where, although we compete amongst ourselves, the level of cooperation has risen to a historic apex, which benefits our members, home-seekers, and the public like never before.
Douglas Wagner has been a leading manager in the residential real estate industry in NYC for more than two decades.
