This logo demonstrates the Big Sky Country MLS's commitment towards improving real estate data. We adopted the NAR Policy Mandated "Data Dictionary" through RESO Certification in January, 2016.
Real Estate Standards Organization, or RESO, was incorporated in November 2011 as an independent, not-for-profit trade organization that was previously a section of the National Association of REALTORS®.
In early 1999, the National Association of REALTOR® (NAR) joined forces with leaders in the technology industry to explore ways to make access to MLS data easier for individual Realtors, as well as other third-party organizations.
By March of 2002, RESO was officially created as a working group in conjunction with NAR and soon presented its first version of the well-documented Real Standard Transaction Specifications (RETS). RETS is a framework used by the real estate industry in the U.S. and Canada to facilitate the exchange of data.
RESO was officially incorporated in November 2011 as an independent, not-for-profit trade organization, and no longer part of the NAR.
