Stellar MLS Welcomes 2020-21 Board of Directors

Stellar MLS President Jeff Perry

Jeff Perry, who anchors his real estate brokerage in Osceola County, will serve as the MLS’s newly elected President for the 2020‐2021 term. Perry has been a member of the National Association of Realtors® since 1990 and has repeatedly been ranked as one of Central Florida’s top producers by Real Trends Magazine. He also served as President to the Osceola County Association of Realtors® in 2016 and was voted Osceola County Realtor® of the Year in 2002 and 2015.

Perry will head up Stellar’s board of elected volunteers in a market that presents unique challenges and possibilities as the real estate industry moves forward through a global pandemic and a shifting economy. The board will focus on MLS service delivery to support the company’s mission, and evaluate the latest technology integrations for the MLS subscription package to help brokers and agents sustain their livelihood.

It’s essential to keep real estate professionals at the center of the real estate transaction to help guide buyers and sellers. Stellar continues down that path by bringing timely integrations to their customers’ businesses. In one of the first orders of business for the newly sworn-in directors, RateMyAgent® will launch at the end of June for all Stellar customers. The Stellar MLS package will include the social-proof testimonial platform going forward.

We are eager to work with Jeff as our new Board President this year. His experience, vision and practical approach to business will be invaluable to us as we go forward. As we think about how to optimize MLS solutions at this time in the industry, I’m confident Jeff will uphold Stellar’s Always Principles. With his leadership, the Board of Directors will explore opportunities and enhancements with the best outcomes in mind for brokers, agents, and consumers as we chart our next course, said Stellar MLS, CEO Merri Jo Cowen.

Volunteer leadership positions on Stellar’s board are sought-after, and the company is proud to welcome several new directors this year. After a round of peer voting, final officer candidates were elected, including:

  • President — Jeff Perry, Berkshire Hathaway
  • Immediate Past President — Mindy Rovillo, iMapp Realty
  • President-Elect — Drayton Saunders, Michael Saunders & Company
  • Vice-President — Rick Hemenway, Crosby & Associates, Inc.
  • Treasurer — Peter Rivera, Re/Max Palm Realty
