April 2024: PropTech Innovator Meeting Recap & Insights

By Joe Schneider | April 4, 2024

The PropTech Innovator Network is a group of C-level PropTech executives who meet monthly to discuss the latest technology trends and receive unique insights from influential MLS & Industry leaders. On April 3rd, 2024, the Network welcomed special guest Greg Sax, Head of Communications at RESO. Greg is known for his online interview series “Three Questions” and was recently featured in the MLS-PropTech Digest. In case you missed the call this month, here is a recap of the insight conversation with Greg.


Greg Sax Conversation Highlights

For technology companies that are leveraging MLS data to power their products, ingesting and working with numerous, varied, datasets poses a challenge. The Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO), is helping put an end to this by creating robust data standards for the industry. PropTech companies can set themselves up for success by staying informed on, and actively participating in the changes RESO is leading. By developing products with the RESO standard in mind, technology companies can position themselves as more friendly to an MLS and this can have a huge impact on their sales and partnership conversations.

Aside from staying informed on and adopting the RESO standards, Greg gave very candid advice to companies looking to work more closely with MLSs and Associations. MLS leaders are listening and they do want to provide the best technology to their members, however, they are very busy and have very long runways. While that can be frustrating for startups, you’ve got to be patient and understand that they are dealing with much more than what you might see on the surface.
