CRMLS Leaps from the West Coast to Offer Vendor Services to Louisiana

This deal demonstrates CRMLS’s ability to work with a variety of ownership models, including brokers, and continues the noncontiguous collaboration emerging in the MLS industry. The Louisiana side of the story may contain more pertinent lessons for most Realtor association-owned MLSs as the emergence of this broker-led initiative is a direct response to the local MLS’s inability to address brokers’ request to bring the data together. If CRMLS and Greater Southern MLS find success, this could be a whole new competitive factor for local MLS leaders who think they do not have to work collaboratively or consider data and organizational consolidation.
