BPP Newsletter: December 2019
Jeremy Crawford, President and CEO of First Multiple Listing Service, Inc. (FMLS), explains the value that the BPP brings to the MLS, why industry leaders should support the movement, and how he leverages Homesnap in his market, in this recent RIS Media article.
“Every MLS that’s not already a member of the Broker Public Portal isn’t putting the broker at the forefront of their business decisions,” wrote Crawford. “Every technology [MLSs] offer must provide value to a broker’s business. Offering Homesnap helps support our role in making the market work. It’s a technology that ‘wows’ clients.”
FMLS serves more than 42,000 real estate professionals in Georgia with over 2,100+ broker member offices.
