New Certs & All About Pain Points! RESO Weekly 5/11/21

By Claire Northrop

It was a big week for certifications, and we hope to see more of the same as the year progresses. It took a village to get here. The workgroups have labored; the code, instructions and certification tools have improved; the vendors have made adjustments; the MLSs themselves have been patient. We are incredibly thankful for all the work that has brought us to a week like this one. We are also sharing the conversation that took place during the popular Pain Points session at RESO Remix.

Pain Points

In recent years, RESO’s conferences have ended in a Pain Points session. These meetings are a moderated, yet mostly free-form discussion on where industry organizations are struggling.

Whether it’s inefficiency in standards, tools, processes or organizational relationships, Pain Points allows members to voice their current industry gripes to the RESO world.

Pain Points has quickly become RESO’s most popular conference session, and the spring 2021 rendition took it to another level. More than 200 attendees piled onto the Zoom link. It was scheduled for 90 minutes but continued for nearly three hours of discussions about the solutions that RESO can provide to the real estate industry.

What follows from this marathon brainstorm should illustrate the vast range of opportunities that lay before us as professionals that desire positive change for our partners, customers and even competitors. | READ MORE
