SEATTLE and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Retsly, a software company that collects and normalizes real estate data from multiple listing services (MLSs) and from more than 3,000 counties, today announced "Retsly Connect", a new service that enables software developers to create front-end software that brokers can use in conjunction with the listings management software provided by their MLS. Retsly is owned by Zillow Group.
Retsly Connect gives brokers and agents in participating MLSs the option of using the front-end software of their choice to manage their listings and data. Now, when their MLS integrates with Retsly Connect, brokers and agents can choose from a variety of software interfaces to search for and work with MLS information. Two leading software providers that have created feature-rich, user-friendly software for use with Retsly Connect are Rappatoni and Stratus Data Systems.
Retsly Connect is similar to Zillow Group's popular Tech Connect program, which allows technology companies to build applications and services and connects them directly with Zillow Group via an application program interface (API). There is no cost to the MLS to offer Retsly Connect.
"Brokers have a variety of needs when using a listing search and reporting solution," said Errol Samuelson, Zillow Group chief industry development officer. "That's where Retsly Connect comes in. Retsly Connect enables brokers to choose the software solution that best suits their needs, and MLSs can provide brokers with the flexibility to achieve differentiation in their market."
