Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Beaches MLS sues JTHS, Miami AOR, Teresa Kinney and staff members for unauthorized MLS access.

This is getting crazy even by South Florida MLS politics standards. The first thing you want to do is read Andrea Brambila’s article on Inman News:

Turf squabble fails to derail Florida association merger
Miami Association of Realtors to grow to nearly 40,000 members

“RAPB has decided to no longer share listing data with MIAMI, cutting off their collective 51,000 members from each other’s listing information. Both Hall and Kinney declined to comment on that decision at this time, saying they would be distributing press releases about it in the near future.

MIAMI and JTHS have been sharing data for years and will continue to do so, Kinney said. JTHS will keep its own MLS system after the merger “for as long as they want,” she said.

“One of the things you don’t want to do with members is mess with their MLS,” she added.”

I’ll say.

Now it appears Beaches MLS asked for and got a temporary restraining order. I’m not clear on how far the order goes but this doesn’t look to be resolved any time soon.

Seems they have proof that and seeking to find more that Miami AOR have gained “unauthorized access” to Beaches MLS listing data.

You can’t make this shit up.

And if you haven’t had your fill of crazy South Florida MLS stories, here’s another whopper.

It’s got MLS manipulation, extortion, police arresting (and that person resisting) at a penthouse and two real estate agents named Jill. Enjoy.
