HGAR and LIBOR prepare groundwork for new regional MLS for New York Metro area
The Hudson Gateway Association of REALTORS (HGAR) and the Long Island Board of REALTORS (LIBOR) have recently agreed on the framework for forming a new multiple listing service (MLS) to serve the New York metro area including: Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange Counties, as well as the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. The newly formed regional MLS would consist of approximately 36,000 REALTOR subscribers.
HGAR CEO Richard Haggerty said a primary objective of the new MLS is to create a seamless flow of data for brokers and agents within the New York Metro area. LIBOR CEO Joseph Mottola said it will improve services in operational efficiencies, increased economies of scale, and enhanced technology, that will enable members to better serve the buying and selling public.
