-----DAVID PRICE

My name is David Price, and I'm the President & CEO of MARIS. Today we would like to tell you about an exciting change that is coming in the fourth quarter of 2021. We’re pleased to announce that MARIS will be converting to the Common Data Platform.  
 

-----JEFF BOSCH 

The Common Data Platform, or CDP, is a lot like how it sounds -- we are moving our listing data from an MLS vendor to a separate shared platform started by Northstar MLS. This will allow us more flexibility with listing data, enhancements to your user experience, and opportunities for growth and reciprocity across MLS borders regardless of MLS vendors. The possibilities are numerous but before we can get to those, we must move the data.  
 

-----DAVID PRICE

And I’d really like to stress that point -- CDP will empower us to have full ownership over our most important asset – our database. With this comes innovations that enhance and improve your everyday experience within the real estate industry, starting with the products you use every day.  
 

-----RANDI MARIE PENNY

We will have new mobile-friendly solutions, for example. The new Add/Edit web app will offer you more flexibility when it comes to quick listing updates from any device, giving you full access to the entering and editing of listings in a mobile responsive environment. Listings can be easily updated for multi-photo upload, open house scheduling, and more. With a robust search functionality in both list view and card view, you’ll have access to all the MLS listings you need right at your fingertips whether you prefer to filter by MLS#, listing agent, office, address, or city.  
 

-----JEFF BOSCH 

Transitioning to a Common Data Platform will have a positive impact on more than just products though. CDP is allowing us to expand our footprint, offering opportunities for collaboration with neighboring MLSs and associations on the common data platform – and potential to positively impact those of our members that hug the outer bounds of our current footprint. 
 

-----DAVID PRICE 

We know that CDP will push MARIS into the next dimension of innovation and technological enhancement, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be bringing this to you, our membership. 
 

-----RANDI MARIE PENNY

Part of this data movement requires the transition to a new Matrix experience. While most of what you know about Matrix remains the same, there will be some key updates that you will need to be aware of. However, rest assured we have implemented a full communication plan to keep you up to date every step of the way.  

We will be communicating with you throughout the conversion via videos, emails, blogs, newsletters, and social media. And Brokers, you will also receive some key webinar invitations in coming months where I will guide you through our updates.  

Please be sure to subscribe to our blog, and pay close attention to our email and social media outreach. We would also ask you to make sure you are receiving our communications by verifying the email in your profile and adding us to your safe sender list.  
 

-----DAVID PRICE 

Since inception, our mission hasn’t changed: Provide an orderly marketplace that facilitates cooperation and compensation for participants through a common database of real estate information. It is important to know, we are taking every email, every phone call, and every opportunity for member engagement very seriously. We have heard your frustrations, your enthusiasm, your concerns, and your recommendations for our product technology, our website, and our service, and we are using them drive the transformation of our technology, and bolster the talent of our teams. 
 

-----JEFF BOSCH 

As we continue to navigate the unprecedented challenges that the last year and a half has provided, we look forward to the rest of 2021 with optimism for the next phase of empowering you with the very best our industry has to offer.

-----JEFF BOSCH
