MRED Director Tapped for RESO Chairmanship
Special Projects/R&D Director Lambrou Latest to take on Leadership Role
By: Midwest Real Estate Data
RESO is a group of real estate organizations working together to develop and implement data standards and processes that support innovation, ensure portability, eliminate redundancies and obtain maximum efficiencies for all parties participating in the real estate transaction. RESO’s ultimate goal is a fully automated real estate transaction facilitated by data standards and processes accepted by real estate professionals everywhere.
RESO has formed the Internet Tracking Work Group in response to the significant interest that exists today in big data analysis and developing ways to measure the value of data displayed.
“Tracking data is a key component for any modern day data set,” said Lambrou. “No longer is having the data secure and readily available enough. True analytics that show value are now expected and commonplace in the software industry. A RESO standard on tracking RETS data would be beneficial for all parties involved. I’m extremely excited for the opportunity to be the facilitator of this conversation and look forward to the journey ahead.”
"Today across the nation, brokers and agents advertise listings through hundreds of different outlets,” said Jeremy Crawford, Executive Director of RESO. “Understanding the value proposition of their advertising efforts and the reach of those efforts are critical to their everyday business. The new Internet Tracking workgroup chartered by the RESO Board of Directors will strive to create standards which will allow for brokers and agents to have transparency into the Internet listing activity and even behaviors by consumers so the brokers and agents know where best to focus their efforts and what is truly successful. The listing tracking information will also help technology and advertising companies tailor their products, services, and targeted outreaches to best serve their respective broker and agent customers."
“We are proud of Chris and the contributions he has made in developing the sourceMLS analytics platform,” said MRED President/Chief Executive Officer Rebecca Jensen (http://www.mredllc.com/
