Real Estate Standards Organization
RESO provides the foundation for streamlined real estate technology through the creation and certification of data standards. The Big Sky Country MLS database is RESO Platinum Certified.
Open standards organizations, like RESO, exist in most industries to ensure technology advancement. A well-known example is W3C, which creates the standards for the World Wide Web. The most powerful technology companies in the world agree to collaborate to build a common web that raises the technology foundations of all competitors.
This is why you can get data, apps, services, and products from many different competing companies on the same smartphone. Web-based products are built on an open standard.
In real estate, RESO’s standards are created to promote that same experience: interoperability between MLS, broker, agent, and consumer technology tools.
