In front of an audience of some 300 brokers at the St. Louis Association of REALTORS® Future Shock (#SLARshock14) event Oct. 16, NAR President-elect Chris Polychron addressed issues related to syndication, after a panel that included other industry and REALTOR® experts. The question at hand: to syndicate or not to syndicate? The panel helped bring clarity to the ongoing syndication debate. At the event, Chris reiterated the need for a Bill of Rights to help protect REALTOR® interests in listing data, saying “We must continue to stand up and remind everyone that the service we provide in accumulating property information is very valuable.”
