Rebecca Jensen is the president and CEO of MRED, a leading MLS that serves over 45,000 REALTORS® in one of the largest marketplaces in the U.S. In the past year, MRED has made advancements in its goals of consolidating, improving standards, and refining technology. The Bloomington-Normal Association of REALTORS® will become the 14th REALTOR® association to obtain its MLS and related services from MRED.
MRED was the first market to adopt the MLS Grid, an innovative real estate data platform. The MLS Grid offers a standard MLS license agreement, which helps brokers and vendors by streamlining the process for accessing MLS data. The MLS Grid consists of 10 MLSs from across the U.S. and represents over 215,000 MLS subscribers.
MRED’s latest benchmark came with the successful integration of Homesnap, a product of the Broker Public Portal, directly into the consumer portal of MRED’s MLS system.
“It’s nothing short of an honor to be considered a Newsmaker in such an incredible industry," says Jensen. "With so much going on around us, it’s always my goal for MRED to be starting conversations and fostering improvements to the MLS so that we can better serve our valued customers.”
