Just when you thought South Florida MLS politics couldn’t get more crazier. The brain trust of these associations decided to dissolve RMLS, FL.
Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches
Jupiter-Tequesta-Hobe Sound Association of Realtors, Inc.
Realtors Association of St. Lucie, Inc.
REALLY? Dissolving RMLS was in the best interest of your members? Can anyone name any part of the country where this has been done successfully? I spoke to several agents at the recent Xplode conference in Boca Raton, and to say they are not happy is a massive understatement.
And don’t get me started about the hell Wes Wiggins must have been through. Do me a favor, next time you see Wes, pat him on the back and buy him a drink. He needs it. By all accounts he’s handled a tough situation with nothing but class.
But hey, this is Vendor Alley, we can’t help ourselves but offer some advice. We see a huge problem in the industry- what do you call this new entity created and now controlled by this trial blazing triumvirate of associations?
The MLS formerly known as RMLS, FL?
REALTORS of Palm Beaches, Jupiter-Tequesta-Hobe and St. Lucie MLS? RPBJTHSLMLS has a nice ring to it eh?
No, actually the name was uttered by one of the agents I was talking to in Boca Raton today.
What The Fuck MLS?
