SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA [September 18, 2019] – The MLS Roundtable welcomes Merri Jo Cowen, CEO of Stellar MLS to the MLS Roundtable. “Fueled by billions of outside investment dollars, technology innovations and new real estate business models, MLS organizations find themselves within an industry in dramatic shift and changing value propositions.” says Stefan Swanepoel, spokesperson and facilitator for the Roundtable.

“During these complex time, finding ways to better serving the needs of our real estate brokers is now more important than ever,” says Cowen and we welcome the opportunity to brainstorm with other large and well managed MLS organizations as we all explore options best suited for our brokers and agents.”

Members of the Roundtable who collectively serve over 400,000+ real estate brokers and agents nationwide, have accelerated adoption of RESO standards, some are pioneering expanded data-share agreements, while other have restructured their MLS organizations to reflect more neutral branding than the former geographical identities.

In 2017, The MLS Roundtable, in association with T3 Sixty, published The MLS 2020 Agenda, which outlined early warning signs that the MLS industry was in distress. A new study from the Roundtable and T3 Sixty, slated for release early next month, will detail specific guidelines for MLS organizations for the coming years.
