Stellar Multiple Listing Service Appoints Its 2021-2022 Board of Directors Leadership

Stellar MLS board members representing counties across the state of Florida will provide
valuable insights and leadership as the organization continues to grow and develop new
technologies for their customers.

(ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FL) June 17, 2021 – Stellar MLS executive leadership is pleased to announce their 2021-2022 Board of Directors and Officers as the organization sets its sights on expansion and technology development in the year ahead. Each shareholder of Stellar MLS has representation on its Board of Directors.

Jeff Perry, Stellar MLS President 2021-2022

Jeff Perry, who anchors his real estate brokerage in Osceola County, will serve a second term as the MLS’s elected President for the 2021‐2022 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 with low inventory, ever-changing technology and industry business model shifts. The board will primarily focus on technology development to support an exceptional MLS user experience, which is central to the company’s mission.

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, such as the MLS Touch mobile app and Prospects CRM platform into their subscription suite. The addition of these intuitive tools into the Stellar MLS product lineup empowers agents and brokers to serve their clients comprehensively from their MLS toolbox.

“We look forward to another term with Jeff as our Board President. His experience, vision and practical approach to business are invaluable to Stellar MLS. 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 appoint these officers to serve another term:

  • Jeff Perry, President
  • Drayton Saunders, Vice-President
  • Rick Hemenway, Treasurer
  • Jeff Fagan, Executive Committee Member
  • Mindy Rovillo, Executive Committee Member
