Tip of the Week – Using RPR View for Statewide Data Sharing

Back in September of 2015, we announced that after the Minnesota MLS data share agreement ended, we switched to RPR View™ from Realtors Property Resource as a solution for sharing statewide listing information and offers of compensation. The RPR View™ data share initiative is consolidated into RPR, already available to you through your NorthstarMLS subscription. You may now access listings in RPR (including offers of compensation) from seven Minnesota MLS’s.

“It looked simple to implement and, most importantly, it fulfilled a need for our customers, which is paramount to anything else we do.” – NorthstarMLS President and CEO John Mosey on RPR View

Back in September, we added RPR View™ (from Realtors Property Resource) as an alternative for sharing statewide listing information and offers of compensation. Seven other Minnesota MLSs have entered into the reciprocal data share agreement – more than 17,600 REALTORS® in the state have access to the data.

In a recent article, RPR interviewed NorthstarMLS President and CEO John Mosey and Director of Marketing and Communications Tom Flaherty. The conversation focuses on how and why the decision was made to add RPR View for subscribers as an option for sharing statewide data. You can read the full interview here.
