Our big announcement last week received coverage from a number of different news outlets. We’re thrilled that the industry is as excited about the future of MLS as we are! Inman News ran an in-depth article with quotes from Bright MLS executives.
In the article, Bright MLS CEO Tom Phillips speaks specifically about the benefit of a larger marketplace.
“Consumers can go on third-party sites and seamlessly search markets, yet historically we’ve put agents in a box defined by these MLS geographic borders. At its very core that’s one of the problems we want to solve,” he said. “We don’t want to hinder these agents and brokers with these arbitrary boundaries any longer.”
We enjoyed seeing the positive comments on the Inman article and tweets we received as well:
@Bright_MLS You're welcome. And as a writer and reader, thanks for choosing a name that isn't an acronym

Fangirl-ing over the new @bright_mls website. Wishing every MLS would at least look at the scope of what they are doing

Speaking of Vendor Alley, we particularly liked this Greg Robertson quote from his post:
I just love the audacity of this copy. I have a feeling the scale of this will be a lot bigger than anyone thinks.
