Corelogic’s Trestle provides an easy platform for an MLS to become RESO compliant.
Upstream is a broker owned platform for entry and distribution to MLSs.
The MLS Grid accepts data direct from participating MLSs. The data is filtered into ONE RESO compliant usable format and made accessible to brokers and vendors through ONE data feed, with ONE license agreement, and ONE set of rules and display guidelines. The MLS Grid’s focus is on the use of the MLS-wide compilation.
