Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Jim Speer named CEO of newly formed regional MLS.

MLSLI and HGMLS Merge to Form Regional MLS

“he Multiple Listing Service of Long Island, Inc. (MLSLI) and the Hudson Gateway Multiple Listing Service (HGMLS) have merged to form the New York MLS, LLC. The new MLS will consist of approximately 40,000 real estate professionals, serving Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Bronx, and Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan and Orange Counties.
Jim Speer, the Sr. Vice President of Operations for MLSLI for over 30 years, will serve as Chief Executive Officer for the new MLS. Speer says, “With the alliance of two successful MLSs, members gain entry to a vast selection of integrated technology tools and resources which will better serve their buyers and sellers.”

Combined it looks like the new MLS will be over 40,000 agents. I saw Jim speak at the CMLS conference, along with Richard Haggerty of the Hudson Gateway Assn. where they went over some of the details. While I’m sure there were some bumps in the road (and a few ahead) it really sounded like the process wasn’t overly dramatic for a MLS that size. Big Congrats to Jim, MLSLI and HGMLS.
