Secrets of a Smarter MLS Podcast

The MLS is Making the Market Work® … but what is making the MLS work?*

 
Every few weeks, Andy Woolley, a longtime advocate and eyewitness to all things MLS, will sit down with the executive of a smartly operated MLS to explore the secrets of their success. Together they will explore where the strategy, operations, and execution intersect, enabling the smart MLS to power an efficient and vibrant real estate market.
 
Power is gained by sharing knowledge. Experience is a master teacher. We hope this podcast will be a platform for collaboration, sharing ideas to empower all MLSs to operate smarter.
 
Whether you are an MLS director or executive interested in learning the fundamentals powering the smart MLS, or just want to hear some great career advice, the Secrets of a Smarter MLS Podcast  is for you.
