“Jason has represented me for 2 buy-side transactions (so far). I’m an out-of-state buyer, and Jason helped me navigate the process without me having to actually be there in person. Jason is very responsive–on email, phone, and text; and he went above-and-beyond whenever I asked for a favor. I ended up leveraging his network to remodel one of my houses, and everyone (plumber, electrician, roofer, etc) worked out flawlessly. Jason’s local knowledge really shines, and he’s really in tune with the local inner workings–finding listings before they are actually listings, for example. I highly recommend Jason; you’d be hard-pressed to find a more diligent, honest, and knowledgeable agent”

In 2010, the CREA settled with the Competition Bureau, and agreed to allow flat-fee listings. However, some real estate boards continued to bar the practice, citing interpretations of provincial laws requiring those trading in real estate to be licensed. Flat-free providers disputed the argument, claiming that their services were no different than posting listings on classifieds, and that they were not necessarily trading. In 2015, the Competition Bureau began a federal case against the TREB by Realitysellers

MLS History in the United Kingdom. In the 1980s and early/mid 1990s agents did work together much like the early U.S. and Canadian realtors via paper-based forms which had tick-boxes offering a listing from one agent to sub-agents. Attached would be the property details pre-agreed with the owner for correctness, a photographic negative of photo; later a similar procedure was carried out by email and graphic computer file. Agents involved could copy and process the paper- or email-based property data. The main agent was treated as the vendor; all sales progression went through her and commission was split upon completion.

The future of MLS in the UK: The future of the MLS in the UK is uncertain at the time of writing (2017). With most home buyers beginning property search online via nationwide property portals, it would seem that the requirement for property sharing between agencies is significantly diminished. Large UK property portals vastly improve liquidity in the residential real estate market by connecting buyers with agents in an information-rich environment. In essence, horizontal sharing of inventory between agents – formerly conducted through the MLS – is now replaced by a vertical interaction between estate agents and centralised advertising portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla.
