April 2017 Board Report

April Board Report

Meeting of the Board of Directors April 21, 2017

    Finance Committee:  The February and March financial reports indicate the Corporation remains within budget and income, and membership numbers remain stable.     

    Innovation Task Force:  The Board was provided a demo of Cloud MLX, an MLS front-end search for members wanting an alternative to Rapattoni’s user interface. The product is compatible with Cloud CMA and Cloud Streams. The Directors approved the Task Force’s recommendation to offer Cloud MLX to BAREIS members for free as a BAREIS member benefit.

    Member Outreach:  Broker/Manager breakfasts were held at the Dry Creek Inn in Healdsburg and at the Flamingo Hotel in Santa Rosa. Carrie Kozubal has taken on a new role leading BAREIS’ efforts to continually improve members’ experience and engagement with BAREIS MLS®. Dave Fahrner is 2017 Chair of the Member Outreach Task Force.

    Rapattoni Updates:  The Rapattoni Map update was postponed so Rapattoni could integrate modifications requested by BAREIS.

    Rate Plug went live in BAREIS MLS® on April 19th.

    Public Search Site:  The new public search portal developed by My Property Office containing listing data from BAREIS MLS®, SFAR MLS and Bridge MLS is being tested. The name of the new site is rebayarea.com

    Data Accuracy:  No citations were issued for listing violations in the 1st Qtr of 2017. 989 corrections were made during the same period. This decline in citations reflects BAREIS’ efforts to assist members in achieving listing accuracy rather than fining for listing errors.
