We're rewriting the rules of engagement.

CRMLS and Bright MLS began working collaboratively in late 2021 with the intent to create solutions for the brokerage community.

REdistribute was formed to aggregate and distribute data on behalf of participating brokerages and MLS organizations, providing unbiased, up-to-date MLS data directly from the source to institutions involved with the housing industry to put brokers back in control of their data rights and usage.

Revenue generated by REdistribute will be shared back with the brokers and MLS organizations who participate, ensuring participants are compensated fairly – and at true market value – for the data they provide.

This is truly a turning point for the industry.
