“We’re beyond excited about data becoming more accessible to innovators, and we think the next big idea in real estate technology will be born at this event,” says Kyle Campbell, co-founder of Retsly.
The Realogy Innovation Summit – Powered by Retsly, will feature some of the software industry’s most talented software developers creating web, mobile, and analytic products for residential real estate, in a 27.5-hour live competition in an environment similar to established technology events like TechCrunch Disrupt. To access the data, developers will use Retsly’s application programming interface (API) that links to standardized and aggregated MLS data, thereby allowing participants to create new applications in minutes, not months. REALTOR ambassadors also will be on hand to add a practitioner’s perspective to the software developers’ brainstorming.
The judging panel includes industry leaders such as: Russ Bergeron, CEO of Midwest Real Estate Data LLC (MRED); Art Carter, CEO of California Regional Multiple Listing Service, Inc. (CRMLS); Ray Ewing, CEO of Sandicor Inc.; Cameron Payne, CEO at the Connecticut Multiple Listing Service, Inc.; and Realogy’s Alex Perriello. Participants will have the opportunity to compete for top honors in a variety of categories. After the competition, the winning developers will get to present their innovative ideas in front of more than 25,000 real estate professionals on the trade show floor from Nov. 8-11 at the National Association of REALTORS’ Expo.
