realMLS takes ownership stake in Markt
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Northeast Florida Multiple Listing Service, Inc. (realMLS®) has taken an ownership position in Markt®. The path to ownership started last year when realMLS contracted with Markt to provide MLS tech support to their over 11,000 members. realMLS joins Metro Multiple Listing Service (Metro MLS) and Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service (ARMLS) in the Markt venture to deliver quality benefits and services to help MLSs modernize their operations.
“Moving forward with Markt ensures realMLS remains essential, increases our value to our members and secures our place in the real estate ecosystem of the future. Our members will continue to receive advanced tools and services, while our staff will be empowered with additional support as we strive to provide an excellent experience for our members,” stated Nicole Jensen, CEO realMLS.
Simply put by Metro MLS CEO Mr. Carrillo, “We started as partners, but we quickly innovated together on how shared services can be successful across noncontiguous markets. Markt has evolved from an experiment to a true service provider.”
By working with Markt, partnering MLSs can focus on serving subscribers and less time on duplicating efforts on professional services like support, marketing, infrastructure, and market stats. Markt partners and clients choose the services that best meet their local market needs.
