mls clawThe MLS™-CLAW, a Southern California-based MLS, has been awarded the Real Estate Standards Organization's (RESO) Data Dictionary 1.5 Platinum Certification, the highest level of certification offered by RESO.

The MLS™-CLAW earned this level of certification for its internal system, as well as for the Palm Springs Regional Association of REALTORS and the Imperial County Association of REALTORS, both of which license its software. They stand among three other MLSs, out of more than 700 in the nation, to have achieved Data Dictionary 1.5 Platinum Certification.

An estimated 700+ MLS organizations and hundreds of other technology firms collect real estate data. The RESO Data Dictionary serves as the real estate industry's "Rosetta Stone" for data fields. It creates a common language that allows real estate information to be more easily shared and understood. RESO provides specific Data Dictionary certification services to ensure MLSs correctly adapt to standards and to ensure that brokers and technology companies can utilize MLS data in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

"We are very proud to be among the first MLSs to have achieved the highest level of certification from RESO, on behalf of The MLS™-CLAW, Palm Springs Regional Association of REALTORS and the Imperial County Association of REALTORS," said Annie Ives, CEO of The MLS™-CLAW. "With our own in-house development team, we are able to ensure we're always on top of the latest technology while providing standardized data. Our team strives to lead the industry with our technology, data standards and best-in-class customer service."

"We are ecstatic to see The MLS™-CLAW, Palm Springs Regional Association of REALTORS, and Imperial County Association of REALTORS all become RESO Platinum Certified in Data Dictionary 1.5. Achieving the highest level of excellence is no small task and they should be very proud of this accomplishment, noting that to date only three other MLSs have reached this level of standards adoption," said Jeremy Crawford, CEO, RESO.

"Their commitment to a leading-edge philosophy in providing standardized data greatly benefits their brokers, agents and technology providers and sets another bar in the industry other exceptional organizations will desire to emulate."
