John and I are not so arrogant as to believe that we have all the answers, but weâ€™re not ready to tell the industry to give up the fight. The â€śconventional wisdomâ€ť may be telling the industry to throw in the towel, however, thatâ€™s bad advice from those who have something to gain should you heed their advice. Weâ€™re not ready to accept the premise that â€śMLS is dead.â€ť We believe that MLS as an industry is alive and well, and has really just arrived. We fully intend to have an impact on this conversation and the future of listing data on the Internet. The time is right, the forces are aligning and the future is a little clearer with each passing day.
