SEATTLE and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Retsly, a software company that collects and standardizes real estate data from multiple listing services (MLSs) and more than 3,000 counties, today announced that several new MLSs have made their data available through its Application Programming Interface (API), including the Miami Association of REALTORS®, one of the largest MLSs in the country.
Retsly partners with MLSs to make their data available in a standardized format and provides tools enabling MLSs to grant access to software developers so they can create new products and services for real estate professionals. The new products and services are instantly available to every MLS which participates with Retsly. Retsly makes it easier for developers to build new apps while enabling MLSs to maintain full control over their data at all times.
"As more MLSs make their data available through Retsly, the more potential there is for innovations that empower real estate professionals to be more effective across all areas of their businesses - ultimately leading to happier buyers, sellers, renters and agents," said Errol Samuelson, Zillow Group chief industry development officer. "Through our outreach to the developer community, we've seen some incredible products be created for agents and brokers. With more data and better tools available to developers, the more quickly our industry will move forward."
"The Retsly solution will make it easier for software providers to work with our MLS and provide our members with access to innovative new products that make their jobs easier," said Teresa King Kinney, Miami Association of REALTORS® chief executive officer. "At the same time, Retsly gives us the tools to manage access to our data and keep it secure."
