ROCKVILLE, MD (PRWEB) July 15, 2014
MRIS, the industry-leading Mid-Atlantic Multiple Listing Service (MLS) that facilitates nearly $125 million a day in real estate transactions, is pleased to announce that its President and CEO, David Charron, will speak on the Uberfication of Real Estate at Inman News’ Real Estate Connect Conference in San Francisco on July 16.
Charron, who has been named to the Inman’s 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders for the past eight years, will be speaking on a panel with Homesnap Co-Founder & CEO Guy Wolcott and other top industry thought-leaders. The Uberfication of Real Estate panel will focus on MRIS’s partnership with Homesnap and what it takes to deliver professional-grade mobile tools for real estate professionals on-the-go.
Earlier this year, MRIS became the first MLS in the country to partner with Homesnap to launch Homesnap Pro, the professional version of Homesnap’s extremely popular consumer home search mobile application. The partnership combines the power of MLS data with the intuitive user experience of Homesnap to create a first-of-its kind application for real estate professionals to use in the field.
At Real Estate Connect, MRIS will be recognized as one of the 12 finalists in the Most Innovative Use of a New Technology category for its groundbreaking partnership with Homesnap. The Inman Innovator Awards honor companies and individuals who propel the real estate industry forward by developing and building upon new technologies and ideas to increase productivity, efficiency and transparency of the industry for consumers and real estate professionals.
“Most of us spend extended periods of time away from our desktops, therefore mobile access and the convenience it offers is becoming more and more critical,” said David Charron, MRIS President & CEO. “MRIS is committed to providing the most innovative mobile tools so that real estate professionals are able to run their businesses and connect with their customers at any time and any place.”
Inman Innovator winners will be announced during Real Estate Connect in San Francisco from July 16-18. Charron’s session, Uberfication of Real Estate, will be held Wednesday, July 16 at 10:25 a.m.
