Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

RESO honors top innovators and volunteers

RESO Innovation Winners, Top Volunteers Honored at Spring Tech Summit

RESO (Real Estate Standards Organization) honored more than two dozen of its members and leaders last week in Denver at its sold-out real estate tech summit. The conference attracted more than 275 real estate technology leaders from real estate brokerages, Multiple Listing Services (MLSs) and technology firms. Outstanding volunteers honored received personally engraved wooden cases with classic games (pictured) in tribute to the tech summit’s theme: “It’s Game On for Data Standards.”

Shawn Whitaker of MLS Data Tools based in Boise, Idaho and Robert Humphreys of Predicted Property based in British Columbia, Canada, were the Innovation winners. They were flown in to present their breakthrough ideas that leverage artificial intelligence and automation at the summit, built on top of a standardized RESO data set that was provided to them by Austin Board of REALTORS®, CoreLogic, and RESO.

I had a chance to moderate a panel on OUIDs, which was a lot of fun (believe it or not). One of the best things about the event is the mix of people. You get the standard conference crowd mixed in with the tech guys and gals working on the intricacies of data. They are such a cool group of passionate people, with a wide range of interests. I got in to several really interesting conversations. Zillow hosted a great party the last night too. It’s easy to see why this event gets sold out.

Next stop Milwaukee!
