  • 1. National Association of REALTORS® RPR Advanced Multi-List Platform™ (AMP™) and Project Upstream Talking Points-May 2015 Revised5/12/15 Realtors Property Resource Advanced Multi-List Platform™ (AMP™)  RPR AMP™ was conceived to give MLSs the power of RPR’s nationwide parcel-centric database by creating a separate MLS back-end, combined with the flexibility to customize their MLS’s front-end into multiple applications.  RPR has been reaching out to MLSs to explore the market interest for this evolving MLS “back-end” technology platform.  As a result of this outreach effort, numerous MLSs have requested information from RPR on RPR’s potential to provide this technology service.  Requests for Proposals (RFPs) have been executed with interested parties to fulfill a proof-of-concept strategy for funding consideration by NAR.  RPR AMP™ is not an MLS provider or a portal. It leaves existing MLS rules, regulations, governance, compliance, standards to be administered by the MLS. AMP™ Would Benefit the Industry:  Helps MLSs provide options to brokers.  Is parcel-centric / policy-centric.  Offers an inherent awareness of roles and access framework.  Allows MLSs to use one or multiple front-end applications of its choosing. Project Upstream  Project Upstream was created by a coalition of brokerages, networks and national franchises, representing real estate companies of all sizes and business models, to facilitate the development of a comprehensive data technology platform that is designed to: - Create an intermediary data entry and collection platform between realestate firms and the recipients of real estate-related data. - Re-order the flow of information with a rules-based engine that supports the individual requirements of each participating broker.  Project Upstream created Upstream RE,LLC in 2014 and is governed by a Board of Managers who, on an ongoing basis, will be elected by Upstream participants. The Board will have seats for representatives of small firms, medium-sized firms, large firms and networks/franchises to ensure every type of company has a hand in managing the project.  Upstream RE, LLC includes the following organizations, as either original founders or current participants in the Upstream RE Board of Managers: o Baird & Warner o Berkshire Hathaway Home Services (HSF Affiliates, LLC) o Better Homes and Gardens o Century 21 Clemens & Sons Realty, Inc. o Coldwell Banker o Crye-Leike Real Estate o ERA o HomeServices of America o Keller Williams o Leading RealEstate Companies of the World o Long & Foster o Northwood Realty o NRT o Pacific Union o Private Label Realty / Tenura Holdings o RE/MAX Holdings, Inc. o Real Estate One o Realogy o The Realty Alliance o Realty Executives o Shorewest,Realtors® o Sotheby’s International o William Ravies Real Estate
  • 2. National Association of REALTORS® RPR Advanced Multi-List Platform™ (AMP™) and Project Upstream Talking Points-May 2015 Revised5/12/15  Upstream-RE has been assessing technology options to develop the Upstream platform and views RPR and its AMP™ Project as a complimentary platform that can accelerate Upstream’s effectiveness and overall product and feature delivery. HowWould Realtors® Benefit?  The data entry and collection platform would comply with RESO standards, ensuring the quality of data across the industry.  A single entry point for data simplifies the process.  Brokers can more easily control where and how listing information is displayed. NAR-RPR AMP™-Project Upstream Partnership Model  NAR is responding to a need in the industry; this initiative aims to create a permanent high-value benefit for Realtors® at the request of and in collaboration with the brokerage community.  By committing the leadership and resources of Upstream and NAR to the success of Upstream and RPR AMP™,the partnership model would accelerate Upstream development by leveraging RPR’s investment in data and technology, AMP development, and five-year track record delivering a fully scaled and sophisticated national solution.  A Letter of Intent was executed this week at the NAR Legislative Meetings for the joint AMP/Upstream project, pending the NAR Board of Directors approval.
