Trulia joins with RESO
In the latest industry move toward data accuracy, Trulia has announced that they will be joining the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO) as an industry partner.
RESO is a non-profit industry organization that is dedicated to standardizing real estate data so that it can be used consistently by multiple listing services, vendors and third parties to develop better and faster real estate applications and platforms. Its mission is to standardize real estate data, promoting accuracy, consistency, and availability for all parties in the real estate ecosystem, thus reducing the cost of development of real estate applications for everyone.
Alon Chaver, Trulia’s Vice President of industry services, will also join the RESO Board of Directors, effective January 1, but will attend the RESO Board’s meeting today. His role and responsibilities leading the Trulia Industry Services group will remain unchanged.
“We’re excited to have Trulia as a RESO member, and to add Alon to our board as an additional voice from the industry,” said Rebecca Jensen, CEO of UtahRealEstate.com and chair of the RESO board. “RESO’s mission is to standardize real estate data, so working with Trulia is a natural fit with our goal to make data accessible and interoperable for all. Adding Alon to the board will help us lay the groundwork for further cooperation between MLSs, brokers and developers.”
“I’m very pleased to be joining the RESO board, and look forward to getting started,” said Alon Chaver, vice president industry services for Trulia. “Joining RESO makes perfect sense for Trulia, because data standardization will deliver great efficiencies across the real estate industry. By participating in the creation of data standards, Trulia will be able to leverage its position as a technology partner to the industry and provide unique insights and drive more value to our agent, broker and MLS partners.”
