MLS Aligned, LLC, a group of forward-thinking Multiple Listing Services focused on building industry-leading technology for its over 100,000 MLS subscribers, has acquired the technology assets of RE Agent Solutions, LLC, the owner of the Agent Inbox technology.
With this acquisition, MLS Aligned will build upon the Agent Inbox tools to bring messaging and showings together in a straightforward place for agents and brokers. The system will bring tremendous benefits to consumers due to the platform’s speed and enhanced showing system capabilities.
To better facilitate the showing process, MLS Aligned will integrate the showings and messaging systems within the platforms of their members to provide seamless agent-to-agent and agent-to-client communications.
MLS Aligned is committed to being the leading force for standardizing showing data for the industry. It will utilize its programming and product staff’s talents to formulate the best practices needed for MLSs around the country. After seeing significant changes in real estate software and the various company acquisitions over the last year, the need to standardize and modernize this data on their own showing platforms became evident to the MLS Aligned members.
“The purchase and development of a showing service allows us to provide our members with a quality product that we control moving forward. Owning our showing service eliminates future acquisition anxiety and allows us to meet the needs of our members in the best way possible. We are excited to work with our MLS Aligned partners to develop a product that will positively impact our members and the MLS industry,” Metro MLS CEO Chris Carrillo said.
MLS Aligned is owned by and develops products for MLSs. Metro MLS in Wisconsin, ARMLS in Arizona, UtahRealEstate.com in Utah, RMLS in Oregon, and MLSListings in Silicon Valley are partnering to own and operate this new showing service.
“We’re stronger together than apart. Working through MLS Aligned to bring this system to subscribers is one way MLSs can team up to provide elevated experiences and services,” ARMLS CEO Matt Consalvo said.
“The acquisition of Agent Inbox by MLS Aligned transforms the landscape and future of how independent MLSs serve their members,” Agent Inbox co-founder and CEO Tyler Gordon said. “Leveraging Agent Inbox’s leading platform, MLS Aligned will control and further innovate on the most critical workflows of the real estate transaction.”
MLS Aligned will be making this software available to organizations that are not MLS Aligned members in the near future.
