Southern Missouri Regional MLS, LLC partners with MLS Grid to manage real estate data feeds

SALT LAKE CITY, May 20, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Southern Missouri Regional (SOMO) MLS, LLC announces that the organization has begun using MLS Grid to deliver and standardize data delivery for its members.

The move makes SOMO MLS, LLC the third MLS in Missouri to move to MLS Grid; continuing the goal of MLS Grid to create marketplace efficiency by streamlining data transfers across real estate markets nationwide and provide standardized vendor licenses.  

With more than 500 MLSs operating nationwide, it’s often a challenge for brokerages to combine data from multiple markets to serve websites, marketing systems, market analytics, showing services, lockbox services and brokerage management systems.

“In MLS Grid we have found a partner who shares our commitment to make data management easier for our subscribers and the consumers who rely on them,” said SOMO MLS Director, Leah Ingalsbe. “With the help of MLS Grid, we’ll be able to provide a faster process for data licensing, billing, distribution, and online compliance."

MLS Grid’s leadership has more than 60 years of combined MLS experience. It’s a company run by MLS executives and developers who understand the industry and the challenges brokers and associations face in a fast-evolving market.

“MLS of all sizes face the same pain points with managing data feeds and licensing. Our simplified process saves MLS staff significant time and resources,” said MLS Grid CEO, Joseph Szurgyi. “Now we are helping MLSs and brokers across the state of Missouri work efficiently together to achieve a common goal as well as implement the increasingly important RESO data standards.”
