Those of us who have spent a career working in and around Multiple Listing Services, have often asked ourselves: What would we do different if we could build MLS all over again?”
One of the answers, without a doubt, is Standards. The idea of a “Data Dictionary” was first introduced to me in 1995 while working on the REALTORS Information Network (RIN) project which became REALTOR .com. It was referred to as DxM.
RESO (Real Estate Standards Organization) has taken the real estate “Data Dictionary” to new heights.
