‘If we are going to do this, we don’t stop till we are done’…

Loved this article from Dionna Hall, CEO of REALTORS of the Palm Beaches (now REALTORS of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale). In an article written for MLS Roundtable she goes in to detail the backstory of how they put together the latest merger.

Consolidation is a Powerful Word

At the beginning of the year RAPB President, John Slivon and I discussed the possibility of a merger. We decided that being comfortable was likely short term (at best temporary); we knew the industry was changing. We wanted to address our brokers and agents pain points and felt that merging was a step toward accomplishing that goal. Fortunately, GFLR President Ron Lennen was of the same mindset. Both Presidents approached conversations with tremendous focus and intensity, a commitment of ‘If we are going to do this, we don’t stop till we are done’…and that is what we did.

Just a few years ago the MLS situation in South Florida was a mess. Great to see when you put the right people in place, with the right mindset, things can get done.
