“You’re building a new infrastructure. You’re building a brand new interstate, and one of the hardest things is the off ramp and the on ramp.”

RETS has been a solid technology standard for 15 years, and many vendors are resistant to make the change to API. But as mobile needs shift the industry, a new “interstate” is necessary.

Today’s guest on Listing Bits is prepared to discuss the details of this controversial pivot.

Jeremy Crawford is the CEO of RESO, the organization responsible for the creation, promotion and adoption of standards in the real estate industry. RESO seeks to fuel innovation and help streamline the real estate transaction.

Crawford has been involved with RESO since 2010, serving on its board of directors and co-leading the Education and Outreach Workgroup. He has a unique combination of talent and experience, with an extensive background in information technology and corporate management.

After graduating from East Tennessee State University with a degree in computer science, he landed an IT position with Safeco Insurance. From there, he worked in network management for BB&T Corporation and MarketLinx (a division of CoreLogic).

His resume also includes leadership roles as CIO of Sandicor, CIO and COO of MLSListings and COO of Aculist.

Crawford explains the need for a pivot away from RETS to API, the benefits of saved search portability and the progress of the transition to date.

Listen in to understand the steps being taken to improve the permissioning process and who might play a role in further advances.
